Licensing

We work closely with our Licensing team, who can advise on all aspects of licensing and ensure you are fully compliant with the law.

Under the Licensing Act 2003 there is a requirement to have a Premises Licence if you intend to serve hot food or drinks between the hours of 11pm and 5am. If this is not adhered to, there is a maximum fin of £20,000 and potentially a prison sentence.

We can liaise with the relevant authorities on your behalf, dealing with any objections raised and ensure you have the necessary permissions in respect of your licensable activity.
