We refer to hotels as those doing everything: serving drinks and food and selling takeaway alcohol.
That’s covered by the general licence, and the late night (general licence) for those looking to trade past 1am.
In either case, you’re up for food safety registration.
Preparing meals means class 2, while chips, nuts and other snacks sold in their bag means class 4.
Not serving meals? Head to bars.
No takeaway sales and lots of food? You might be able to get away with the cheaper restaurant and cafe licence. Head over to restaurants.
