We all love eating out at our favourite restaurants and cafes, they are as popular as ever and making sure you have the right cover in place is essential. Restaurants are quite high risk business's to insure with insurance company's, but having a well managed and looked after business will ensure you continue to get competitive prices for your insurance.

Public Liability: One of the more common insurance claims are from the public. Busy restaurants have customers rushing in and out all day long. Customers slipping on spilt liquid or food, food poisoning are the most common causes of liability claims. Ensure your staff are trained well to quickly deal with any spillages. Ensure kitchen areas are kept spotless after service and that foods are fully cooked through.

Employers Liability: You will almost certainly have chefs, waiters or waitresses, greeters and servers working for you. By law, you will have to make sure your restaurant insurance policy includes employers liability insurance to cover against slips and trips, falls ill due to working conditions or hurts themselves using or lifting business equipment.

Frying Range: The most common cause of fire claims in restaurants is from frying ranges. Our insurers look for customers who have good housekeeping in place and look after their equipment. In return insurers will provide better insurance prices and maximum discounts.
Some examples of good housekeeping with frying ranges include:

  • If the frying range exceeds a certain temperature then a fitted thermostat should be fitted to ensure the range is shut down if exceeded. Make sure it's fitted and working correctly.

  • A regular planned maintenance and service programme should be in place. This should be carried out at regular intervals by suitably qualified engineers.

  • Ensure a specialist contractor is used to regularly clean all extraction systems including hoods, canopies, flues, motors, fans and the length of the ducting normally at least annually.

  • Sump boxes, trap and grease removal devices, and filters should be thoroughly cleaned at least weekly and records kept when they have been cleaned.

  • Any used cloths, oily or greasy waster should be kept in metal bins and removed from the premises daily.

  • Ensure the frying area has adequate fire extinguishing equipment close to hand, These include foam, dry powder and carbon dioxide extinguishers and also fire blankets. For health and safety these should have a regular inspection by qualified engineers to ensure they are still in good working order, are adequate and still legal.

  • Maybe common sense, but ensure the frying equipment is never left unattended when in use, and also when turned off ensure someone checks it for the next half an hour until cooled.

fish and chip restaurant | restaurant business insurance | sandwich bar UK quote and costBeware - Not All Policy's Are The Same!!
All restaurant policy's will have different 'warranties and conditions' especially for frying equipment and security. If you have the above housekeeping in place then you shouldn't have a problem, but always look at your current policy or restaurant quotes you have obtained, check these warranty's as they vary from policy to policy and make sure you are doing what these conditions state you must do, if you don't, you could see an insurer refusing to pay a claim. If you find cheap quotes then often it's because they have very strict policy conditions you must adhere to so be aware!!!!
At quote stage we will always inform you exactly what warranty's and terms are on a policy including excess's you will have to pay in the event of a claim, you will just need to confirm you have the warranty's in place.
