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.
