Frequently Asked Questions

Some important questions that often come up. You can save yourself some precious time in meetings and on the phone with us by having a quick read.

Can you provide glass hire?

Yes we can provide a selection of glasses for you to hire, ranging from champagne flutes, water glasses and wine glasses, at very reasonable prices and usually cheaper than those charged by caterers.  Please ask us for more details when you make your booking.

Can we theme the bar to match our colour scheme?

Yes. The beauty of our bars is that they are very adaptable and we are happy to discuss how it can be best matched to your colour scheme and theme.

What happens about licencing and how much will it cost?​

The licence is provided and paid for by Rent A Bar’s personal licence holders.

How much will it cost to have Rent A Bar at our function?

We are free of charge to have. All we ask is that during the course of the event we take a minimum of £500 takings over the bar. We ask for a £100 deposit to secure your booking.

What if my guests don’t meet the minimum spend?

We ask you to make up the shortfall.

Is it true that Rent A Bar makes donations to charity events?

Yes.  Any charity based event we take part in, we make a donation to you for having us there.

Can you get a particular drink in stock?

We have a very large selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, as much as you would find in most pubs! If we do not have a drink you would like, let us know before the event and we can get it in for you. We only use top brands such as Coca cola, Smirnoff, Fosters etc.

If you provide a free bar, does that mean your drinks prices are expensive?​

Our prices are equivalent or cheaper than your local pub prices.

Do you serve cocktails?

Yes we have a selection of cocktails that have been carefully chosen to meet everyone’s needs. We would also be happy to tailor a speciality drink or cocktail to meet your needs.

Do you supply soft drinks too for children and those who don’t drink alcohol?​

Yes we have a wide range of soft drinks and non-alcoholic beer.

Just want to rent a bar?

If you already have your own drinks and people to serve, and simply want to hire a great-looking bar to use for your event, speak to us about renting our bar equipment.
