Insurance for pubs

Pubs carry their own unique risks, and require insurance that is tailored to meet their specific requirements. Pub insurance protects your livelihood against unforeseen events giving you peace of mind to focus on running your business.

Pubs carry risks for everyone involved, from staff to customers, and even neighbouring premises. There are many eventualities that could lead to a claim being made against you, so pub and bar insurance should be a priority.

Pubs come in many shapes and sizes, from wine bars to licensed cafés, restaurants or your local social club. Whatever your speciality, ensuring you have adequate protection for all your trading activities is fundamental to running your business.

Liability insurance for public houses

Public liability insurance can protect your customers against slips, trips or falls, and even food poisoning. You may be the most careful proprietor, but unfortunately accidents do happen. For example, spilled drinks could lead to injury and potentially large claims against you.

Similarly, if you employ bar staff within your business, it’s important to ensure their wellbeing at work and protect yourself against accidents or injury to your employees. Employers' liability, public liability and products liability insurance are typically built into a pub insurance policy to cover these unforeseen events ensuring you have the protection you need.

Pub insurance buildings and contents cover

If you rent or own the premises, then you may also need to protect your contents and buildings against fires, floods, storms and subsidence. All of your equipment will need to be covered, from kitchen equipment to bar stools, beer pumps to playgrounds. Landlords and landladies frequently occupy accommodation within the same premises, or even employ a resident manager. Either way, personal contents should be taken into account as well as the business belongings to ensure you have all the insurance cover you need to protect you.

You may even wish to consider adding loss of money insurance to your pub policy. This can protect your business if money is stolen or lost.

Business interruption insurance for pubs

Your public house insurance policy can include business interruption cover to protect your profit, fixed expenses and staff wages, should you suffer damage at your premises meaning you are unable to trade.

Loss of Licence insurance for pubs

In order to sell alcohol, public houses need to have an appropriate alcohol licence. A licence could be revoked or not renewed for a number of reasons outside of your control which is why it is important to protect your pub against such a loss.

Loss of licence insurance can offer protection following the suspension, withdrawal or forfeiture of your alcohol licence due to licensing regulations or refusal to renew by the licensing authority. It could cover you for both loss of profit and other expenses reasonably incurred to maintain your gross profit.

"This is the 3rd year in a row I have used Premierline. They always find me such competitive prices. As a small business owner I really couldn’t afford the prices when I looked online myself especially after having had no work for 7 weeks due to Covid-19. So it was a huge relief to find a policy I could afford. Soon work will start to pour in and I’m now ready for it."

Mrs Bridger, Cleaning Contractor, Devon (Customer since April 2017)

"I'm so pleased to have bought from them. I made a huge saving on my insurance for my small business and they were so helpful and explained everything. A very happy new customer.”

Miss Saunders, Beauty Salon, Altrincham (Customer since February 2019)

"I found the service very helpful. The person I spoke to rang back when he said he would and provided all the information I needed over the phone. It was a simple and seamless process. I rang up to organise my Professional Indemnity insurance and within a couple of phone calls it was all sorted. Brilliant"

Mr Turley, Quantity Surveyor, Londonderry (Customer since June 2019)
