The Best Bar in the UK

Looking somewhere for a nice drink, why not try the best bar in the United Kingdom?

The Barrelhouse Bar & Grill in Edinburgh has won the titles ‘Star Bar of the Year’ and ‘Best Bar Team’ at the 2017 Star Awards. Coronation Street Actress Kym Marsh presented the Bar Operators ‘Caygill & Smith’ with the awards at a Gala Celebration in Manchester last Thursday.

Caygill & Smith bought over the former Jock’s Lodge Pub in Willowbrae and spent over £280,000 in refurbishment costs before opening as The Barrelhouse in November 2016.

Over a short period of time, the bar has been transformed into a popular and trendy venue.

Barrelhouse Bar & Grill Manager Richard Jordan, believes that the award illustrates the hard work that all the team have contributed.

“It is absolutely amazing! I am very humbled to be honest. We’ve all put a lot of effort over the past eleven months into the bar. It is good that someone has recognised it and given us that award.”

Richard elaborates that the project has been difficult, however taking the title of Britain’s best bar is a proud success.

“It was a very long process we were here for a good few months before opened; breaking it down and starting again but it is all worth it now.”
