Regardless of whether you own a large, 5-star restaurant, a national restaurant chain, a restaurant franchise or a smaller high street restaurant, Restaurant Insurance is vital cover to protect your business against liabilities, damage or loss leading to large financial losses and reputational damage.
With the high amount of daily public interaction, even if you are following HSE guidelines, it is impossible to prevent all accidents and incidents from occurring. Restaurant Insurance covers you for any eventuality and it is important that you take out the right policy for your unique business needs.
What is included in Restaurants Insurance?
Every customer or employee that enters your restaurant is your responsibility. Public and Product Liability are the bread-and-butter of business insurance policies and provide cover for any compensation or legal fees that arise from claims of accidental damage or injury to a person or their belongings.
Product Liability covers food you serve on the premises and food you sell for customers to consume at home. If you employ anyone, you are legally required to have Employers’ Liability.
Contents cover is also imperative for restaurants to have as it covers everything from furniture to kitchen equipment from damage. If your oven experiences a power surge or outage and is unable to run, the effect on your business is detrimental. You may need to take out additional cover for freezer contents and cash on the premises.
Key covers include (but not limited to):
- Public Liability Insurance
- Employers’ Liability Insurance
- Buildings and Contents
- Loss of Income and Money
- Business Interruption Insurance
What can I add to Restaurants Insurance?

If you rent the property, your landlord is responsible for this cover. Loss of license cover is also available if you sell alcohol on the premises, but it is not included in many standard covers.
