What does our pop-up restaurant insurance cover?

We offer several types of pop-up restaurant insurance cover. Our main cover options are:

  • Public liability insurance - this covers accidental bodily injury to a member of the public or accidental damage to third party property at the event if found to be a result of your negligence. Public liability can be in place from when you are setting up as well as when the event is open to members of the public. 

  • Employers liability insurance - this covers you for your legal liability to pay claimants cost and expenses as well as damages arising as a result of injury to anyone you’ve employed at your event (including volunteers, temporary staff and helpers). They must be under your supervision or control at the time of the injury. 

  • Event equipment insurance - this cover relates to equipment you’re hiring or bringing to the event that isn’t part of the fixtures or fittings of the venue. You’ll be covered for accidental damage, loss or theft of the equipment you're legally responsible for during the event. 

  • Event cancellation insurance - this covers you if the event is cancelled, postponed or abandoned. Please contact us for more information regarding this cover.

Pop-up restaurant insurance FAQs

What is a pop-up restaurant?

A pop-up restaurant is a temporary restaurant (set up at a temporary location) which is commonly found at events. They can take the form of tents, carts and other temporary structures and are commonly found at festivals, private functions such as weddings and events taking place in more secluded areas so attendees can be catered for. 

Are pop-up restaurants legal?

Before a pop-up restaurant can be public-facing, food safety and hygiene standards must be met and the vendor will of course need permission to provide food in the location in question (and comply with local councils) before trading. Pop-up restaurants are governed by the same regulations as permanent restaurants and should meet the same high standards. If a pop-up restaurant owner fails to comply with regulations, they could face large penalties. 

How much does pop-up restaurant insurance cost?

How much pop-up restaurant insurance costs will depend on a number of factors, such as the level of cover you require and number of attendees likely to attend the event. Here at Event Insurance Services, you can get pop-up restaurant insurance from as little as £69 for one-off events and just £182 for multiple events.

What are the benefits of having pop-up restaurant insurance? 

There are many benefits to having pop-up restaurant insurance, including:

  • You can feel more relaxed and comfortable on the day of the event(s) knowing that you’re financially covered should an accident occur. This means you can focus your attention on running the event. 

  • If a claim is made against you, you’ll be protected and won’t be held liable (providing your policy covers what the claim relates to), so you won’t end up out of pocket. 

  • You can never predict what might happen at your event and taking out pop-up restaurant insurance will offer both protection and peace of mind, so you’re ready for all possible situations.
