Alcohol Licence for a Restaurant

Alcohol licences for restaurants are on the increase! According new stats recently released, more licensed restaurants are appearing on British high streets as the face of the British retail alcohol market changes. As many as 18 traditional pubs are closing every week, but these seem to be being replaced with new applications for restaurants with alcohol licences.

A spokesperson for Personal Licence Training Limited, who specialise in securing new restaurant licences, said: “We have seen the demand increase over the past twelve months for more specialist restaurants, such as African Restaurants, Polish Restaurants, Turkish, Brazilian, Greek, Spanish, German, French and Hungarian as well as the traditional Indian, Bengali, Thai and Chinese restaurants. The demand for new alcohol licence applications for Eastern European style shops and Delis also is on the increase as more and more retailers look to offer specialist beers and wines to their customers, together with produce or food from other countries. Obtaining an alcohol licence for a restaurant can be a complex exercise for a small to medium size business and many clients turn to ourselves for alcohol licence guidance and staff training on UK licensing laws”.

So it seems that the traditional British high street may be going through a change as the Butchers, Bakers, Traditional Pub and charity shop could be replaced by a Spanish Tapas Bar, Brazilian Restaurant, Polish Deli, Hungarian Restaurant and African Bar.
