About bar insurance


The types of bar we cover

Between licensed clubhouses, music venues, wine bars, sports bars, late-night premises, taverns and cocktail bars, no two venues are ever the same. That’s why we take a tailored approach to your bar insurance; first understanding your business, and then providing cover specific to your risks.


Bar liability insurance

We can provide up £5 million public liability and £10 million employers’ liability insurance, as well as commercial property insurance for the building, business interruption to protect your income and many other business insurance features to keep your patrons, staff and business safe.


Entertainment insurance

If you require insurance for regular or one-off performers, entertainment, or events in your bar, then look no further. It’s important to understand the type of entertainment you provide, so we can offer the correct protection. And, if you’re not partaking in 'high risk' activities, the insurer's premium should be lower too.

Accidental Damage

Bar contents insurance

Contents insurance covers your fixtures and fittings, equipment and stock. In the case of a bar, this means things like your bar stock, cellar stock, fixtures, fittings, glass, crockery and decoration. We can also cover against the leakage of beer and beverages from pumped containers, subsequent damage to contents and a range of other perils specific to your trade.

When you need to make a claim, we'll guide you through the process and get your claim settled as quickly as possible.

  • Find your insurance documents and make sure you have all your information at hand, including your policy number.
  • Call the claims team on 01493 845 305 and explain exactly what happened.
  • Provide photos if requested to help us understand what happened as quickly as we can.

Bar insurance FAQs

Bar insurance is a business insurance package, which comprises your premises, stock, liability and profits protection in one policy. It is designed to protect the specific risks of the licensed trade industry.

If you have employees, you are required by law to have at least employers’ liability insurance. In practice though, no business would operate without most other business protection features in place, because the potential risks of not having them are too great.

To help you spread the cost of your premiums, we offer a quick and easy direct debit scheme for spreading payment over ten months. Please visit our dedicated Direct Debit page to find out more.

Full terms and conditions are available on request from your Towergate advisor, and in your policy documents.
