As every landlord, pub owner and bar manager will tell you, pubs carry risks for everybody involved – from staff to the owner, and customers to the house next door. With Simply Business you can build a policy that takes care of the risks. Even if you’re forced to close temporarily, there’s cover available to tide you over. Whether you work on your own or employ people, it’s quick, quality cover, all in one policy.

What insurance do I need for a pub?

Public liability insurance is often a very important cover for pubs and most other trades, as it can protect you if someone is injured or their property is damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against this cost.

If you own the building your pub is located in, business buildings insurance is essential. Our special pub buildings insurance policy will cover the costs of rebuilding your licensed premises, as well as problems with subsidence.

If you have employees, contractors, casual workers or temporary staff, you’re required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance. It’ll cover claims from employees who’ve been injured or become seriously ill as a result of working for you.

The average insurance claim for a pub is £19,067 – could you afford this if the worst happened? (Average claim being £19,067. Based on data from 21 November 2018 - 20 November 2019, for comparison only. Cancellation charges may apply, please refer to our full terms & conditions.)

It is a very good and easy to use service. I've been a customer for several years and the renewal system is very straight forward. I've always found the quotes competitive too. I'd definitely recommend Simply Business.
