Pub Insurance FAQs

  • How can I protect my pubs stock?

    If you are looking to protect your pub from loss of stock due to damage or theft, contents cover policy is ideal. Every pub owner knows how important stock is to trading successfully. Without it, your business will likely suffer a large loss in profits. In an event such as a flood or fire your insurance policy will make it possible for you to replace your stock along with covering any damaged contents.

  • Can you cover me if I lose my licence?

    If you lose your licence to sell alcohol due to a circumstance outside of your control, our loss of licence cover will provide you with adequate protection. As licensing laws become more detailed it can result in increased risks for pubs, which could end in a licence being revoked. It is possible to take out insurance which will cover your business against losses from the revocation of a licence.

How Pub Insurance works

Examples of Pub Insurance in action

A Nasty Taste

A pub faced action from food standards authorities after many diners suffered from food poisoning following a Christmas Day meal. It later transpired that the kitchen staff had not handled food correctly and had also falsified records to avoid detection. Although the rogue staff was responsible, the company still faced substantial payouts over the incident. The product liability insurance that was already in place covered what would otherwise have been a very large payout that could have easily led to the closure of the business.
