“Congratulations to all the winners, particularly to the Ned Ludd for taking the overall title. The Nottingham Best Bar None, operated by the BID, is instrumental in understanding the compliance systems in place in the city’s hospitality businesses. There is no doubt that well operated businesses contribute to providing a safe environment for visitors, residents and workers in Nottingham.”

Andrew Crawford, Director of Nottingham BID

“As not only a sponsor but also someone who is Nottingham born and bred, it is fantastic to see so many local operators going that extra mile to give their customers the best and safest experience possible. Congratulations to all those that applied. There can however be only one winner so enormous congratulations goes to the Ned Ludd on Friar Lane for standing out this year from a high quality list of operators. It’s a tremendous accolade.”

Sarah Taylor, partner at leading licensing law firm, Poppleston Allen

“When we took on The Ned Ludd a year and a half ago, our aim was to create a local style pub in the heart of the city. We also set our sights on winning Best Bar None so we are absolutely thrilled to have won the small pub category and then, to be named overall winner as well, is just amazing. The pub is as much the staff’s as it is ours so a big thanks to them. We are extremely grateful to them for all that they have done.”

Amanda and Adam Cropper, owner of The Ned Ludd
