Frequently Asked Questions

Bar hire, Devon and Exeter

How much will it cost?

Hiring the mobile bar for an event is free if the event lasts 4 or more hours and you are expecting a minimum number of guests. Minimum numbers can be agreed, just drop us an e-mail or click the contact us link below.

What is included in the hire?

We will provide a minimum of two staff per event and more if required, depending on your expected number of guests, stock and glassware. 

Glassware provided will depend on any licensing restrictions and the type of event. We are happy to discuss any requirements with you. 

Do I need a licence to serve alcohol?

Gert Lush Event Bars holds necessary personal licence to authorise the sale of alcohol. 

If the place you are holding your event has a premises licence you won't need to do anything.

If the place you are holding your event doesn't have a premises licence, a temporary event notice will be needed. It costs £21 to apply for a notice. Here at Gert Lush Event Bars we want to make this process as easy as possible for you so we will apply for this for you without charging any administrative fee, only the cost of applying to the relevant Council on your behalf. 

What type of drinks do you serve?

We have lager, cider and real ale on draught and a variety of alcoholic and soft drinks as well. We have seasonal cocktail menus or can create you our own. 

We are more than happy to discuss any specific requirements you may have. 

We can also provide hot drinks if required. 

Our mobile bar has been designed so we can customise it to your requirements - whether you want a gin, prosecco, tiki, cocktail bar or something unique we can provide it! 

Do you take card payments?

Simply yes we do. 

There may be some restrictions on this depending on mobile signal in the location of your event as mobile signals in Devon are notoriously poor in some areas but generally this shouldn't be a problem.

Do you have a hygiene rating?

As we are classified as a catering business we are registered with environmental health and will receive a hygiene rating soon and our staff have undertaken food hygiene and safety training.

Are you insured?

We are fully insured with public and employee liability insurance to the value of £5 million.

Can you provide a risk assessment?

Yes if you need a risk assessment or other health and safety documents we can provide these. Please advise us of your requirements when booking. 

What areas do you cover?

We are based near Exeter and cover all areas in the South West. If your event is further afield we may still be able to help, get in touch we're keen to help if we can. 

How long does it take to set up?

Because our horse box is fully kitted out, we don't need much setup time, we would normally require two-three hours. 

If you are hiring our indoor pop up bar we would need four to five hours to assemble the equipment. 

Can I provide my own drinks?

As part of offering our services with no hire charge we ask for exclusivity of drinks and due to licensing laws, you would not normally be able to provide your own drinks. 

We provide a wide range of drinks at competitive prices and will accommodate special requests for drinks so most clients are happy that we supply everything they need for a fantastic event!

If you would like to provide your own reception drinks we now offer glass hire and service - check out our services page for more information. 

Do you require a minimum spend?

We don't feel its fair to an event organiser or bride & groom to set a minimum spend that you then have to worry about during your special day so we don't require one.
