The Bricklayers Arms has won the Bromley Best Bar None Award for Responsible Retailing (small venue) 2011, thanks to its exceptionally high standards of innkeeping.
The scheme, run in conjunction with Bromley Council and the police, aims to promote the borough as a safe and enjoyable place to live, work and socialise.

Licensees Jon and Veronica Berry proved more than able to meet its rigorous standards.
Veronica said: “There were about 60 components centring on health and safety, staff training, risk assessments and fire risk management, among others. We were interviewed by experts and provided all the documentation so they had the evidence in black and white.

“Our win came as a wonderful surprise, though Shepherd Neame has high standards and we live up to them.”

The couple’s gleaming plaque hangs in pride of place in the Bricklayers Arms after attending the awards ceremony at Bromley Council offices, accompanied by Shepherd Neame Retail Operations Manager Graeme Endacott.

The win is a double triumph for Jon and Veronica who are expecting their first child soon.
Graeme Endacott said: “Jon and Veronica’s swift and professional responses meant they fulfilled the demanding standards necessary to win this award.”
