Employers’ liability insurance – if you hire staff for your pub, you are required by law to take out employers’ liability cover. It will pay the cost of a claim from an employee who has been injured at work, or who has become seriously ill as a result of working for you.
Loss of liquor licence - Even when you aren't at fault, you could still lose your liquor licence. If the circumstances are outside your control, we will cover you against the loss of value of your business premises and loss of profit.
Pub contents cover - Your pub contents can be covered by our pub contents insurance. You can also take out cover for fixtures and fittings, such as the bar and furniture. Contents insurance covers you against a wide range of perils and disasters such as fire, theft, water and more.
