Four venues across Midlothian are celebrating after receiving official accreditation at the local Best Bar None Awards ceremony.

At the event, gold awards were presented to the Blacksmiths Forge and Esk Valley Table Table while the Leadburn Inn and the Black Bull received silver awards.

The Best Bar None scheme, now in its second year in Midlothian, is an integral part of the Safer Areas Initiatives throughout Scotland.

Accreditation to the scheme shows the venue and its staff have met a level of standards that assures members of the public they will be able to enjoy a safe and welcoming atmosphere.
