How much do you charge for a bar?

Typically we require a £200.00 Booking Fee to secure the date and our services. This covers our initial costs and the Temporary Event Notice fee.

This reduced cost booking fee is based upon the following conditions being met;

  • No alcohol is brought in from outside the event by guests or other persons (exceptions include tables wines and toast drinks)

  • You meet our minimum threshold for adult guest numbers.
  • The event goes ahead as planned and is not cancelled at any point.

As a general rule our prices are at or below the prices in the average local pub. We want your guests to enjoy themselves without worrying about the cost of drinks.

See our Drinks Menu for current, specific pricing.

How much notice do you require when booking?

In order to obtain the Temporary Event Notice in good time, we ask for a minimum of 21 working days notice though in exceptional circumstances this can sometimes be shortened. There is an annual limit to the number of Temporary Event Notices issued to any one venue/location so early booking is beneficial and strongly advised.

Are you legal and insured?

We hold the correct Personal Alcohol License needed to sell alcohol. We apply for all Temporary Event Notices on your behalf. We also carry public liability insurance and our electrical equipment is PAT certified for safety.

Which venues can you supply a bar to?

We can install our mobile bar anywhere. In marquees, village halls, private residences/manor houses, gardens, fields and so on. Devon, Cornwall, Somerset Dorset and beyond.

What are your set-up requirements?

Ideally we require a reasonably flat and level area for our bars and back bars. Minimum space of approximately 4metres x 4metres.

Our equipment requires a standard 240v power supply within 30m of the set-up area. We can also plug into 16a distribution boards such as those typically found in marquees if needed.

A fresh water supply is beneficial, though not essential (please let us know in advance of availability).

We require around 2-4 hours to set-up the bar and have the beer coolers and fridges down to temperature. Packing down is usually a little quicker and should take around 2-3 hours.

What are your selling policies?

FlyBar operates a strict over 18's policy for alcohol and we adhere to the Challenge 25 Scheme

This means if you are lucky enough to look under 25 years of age you may be asked to provide identification in the form of either a driving licence, passport or PASS-accredited proof of age card.

Please advise any of your guests that fall into this category to bring identification if they wish to purchase alcohol.

Anybody we suspect to be supplying alcohol bought from us to persons under the age of 18 will be barred from further purchases and persistent or serious breaches may result in the immediate closure of the bar.

Our stance on this policy is non-negotiable and rigorously enforced. It is our licence at stake along with the success of your party and enjoyment of your guests.

Guests suspected of being excessively drunk and/or abusive/violent may also be refused service. We will not tolerate abuse of either our staff or your other guests under any circumstances.

We are members of the British Institute of Innkeeping for your added peace of mind.


How can guests pay for their drinks?

We accept cash and have wireless commercial card machines for debit and credit card payments at the bar, on the night. They accept contactless payments to serve you faster.

Our card machines works over, both WIFI and the cellular network and can roam all major UK network providers so chances are your venue is covered.
