Trophy for Beefeater's Best Bar None staff
STAFF have been presented with a trophy for being named the best licensed bar in Plymouth.
The Whitbread-owned Marsh Mills Beefeater took the overall prize as best venue at the city's third and biggest Best Bar None Awards celebration in October.
General manager Lisa Barry and her staff received a glass trophy, which they can keep, and BII training vouchers at the black-tie event, at the Holiday Inn. And they have now been presented with the trophy that records all BBN overall winners.
The wooden plaque has space for engraved metal shields and Marsh Mills Beefeater is now recorded besides the two previous winners: the Mount Pleasant, which took the title in 2010, and Varsity, at Derry's Cross, last year's victors.
The trophy will be passed back to BBN next year so it can be presented to the 2013 winner.
Beefeater staff received the honour from Labour Cllr Chris Penberthy, Cabinet member for Cooperatives and Community Development.
Mick McDonnell, chairman of BBN Plymouth, said: "We thought it would be nice for a councillor to present the award to the team at Marsh Mills."
Marsh Mills Beefeater, which was also named best food pub at the BBN awards, will now represent Plymouth in the national Best Bar None (BBN) final in London.
"They will go to a parliamentary reception at the House of Lords in July," Mr McDonnell said.
BBN is the body which recognises the highest standards in the city's evening and night time economy.
