What types of insurance do bars need?

Public liability insurance

Public liability insurance is designed to protect you and your business against injury or property damage claims brought against you by members of the public. If you or a member of your team injure a non-employee or damage their property, you could be held liable and be ordered to pay compensation by a court.

Public liability insurance protects you against the legal fees and obligation to pay for damage or injury that was caused.
