Applying for a Premises Licence - Friday 20th April 2012
I am always amazed how many entrepreneurs we have in the UK, who want to open new bars and restaurants, even in these tough times. Getting finance for new projects remains a difficult task, but as the economy comes out of recession, I firmly believe that consumer spending on entertainment will rebound. We need to get the after work drinks culture going again - young workers don't know how to celebrate the end of the week anymore!
Anyway, the major operators must be confident - just look at how much has been invested at Jamie Oliver's fabulous new restaurant on King Street in Manchester (as well as Le Relais de Venise).
Many new applicants get in contact having found us on Google and I hope that our new website has encouraged people to call us for free initial advice. We are certainly getting increased enquiries since the new site went live.
Entering the licensed trade for the first time can be daunting. We aim to offer a friendly, efficient and competitively priced licensing service. I am always happy to offer advice even if some of the projects don't get off the ground. Our licensing helpline is available outside office hours for urgent issues such as underage sales, reviews and closures.
If you need a Premises Licence or you want any other licensing advice, please give us a call. We can provide a fixed price for your licensing work through the pricing enquiry page here
