The Licensing Guys have a completely different approach to maximising your business opportunities and keeping you safe and legal.

The Licensing Guys offer a turn-key solution to Pubs, Clubs, Restaurants, Takeaways, Convenience Stores and many other businesses. We are experienced Consultants in Licensing, Compliance, Training, Food Safety and Planning. We know that not everyone wants an expensive Licensing Lawyer on speed dial, and you haven’t the time to train all your staff on the latest legislation and developments.

Sometimes you just need to pick up the phone to a trusted adviser and expert who can get things sorted, or call on a trainer who will come to you to deliver to your staff at your premises at a time that suits you. That’s why we’re here. That’s our mission. We want to clear the smoke, smash the mirrors and dispel the myths around Licensing that has stopped thousands of businesses, just like yours, from being able to access timely high-quality advice and support at an affordable price. Whether you need more functionality or flexibility, or are just dipping your toe into the world of Hospitality, all the services we offer to clients (and all the years of experience that we have) can be bought ‘off the shelf’ with our Support packages. Bolt us onto your existing team as experts, have us lead on your Licensing & Compliance regimes, and we will keep your business optimised, legal, safe and trading.

Who We Can Help? Who are our packages for?

Tony runs a successful chain of bars but does not have the time to keep his eye on the ball with compliance. He contacted The Licensing Guys after one of his managers fell foul of the conditions on his Premises Licence and the Local Authority were contemplating taking the pub to a review. We averted the need for review by liaising with the authorities, implementing new training and putting updated policies and procedures in place. We now provide support to the other pubs in the group, taking the pressure of Tony, which allows him to grow his group in confidence that he has the support.

Rashid has an off-licence in Nottingham and wants to open longer and offer deliveries of alcohol to his customers. He contacted The Licensing Guys to scrutinize his pre-existing Premises Licence and apply for the variation to allow him to gain these extra sales. After consulting to the local authorities and putting in extra training and policies, we applied for the variation and he was granted his new Premises Licence with no representations within 30 days.


Carl operates a successful hot food delivery firm but one of his employees made a delivery to underage youngsters with disastrous consequences. He urgently contacted The Licensing Guys to defend his business in a sensitive case that could potentially cost him his business. WE examined his current Premises Licence and systems, then offered enhanced remodelled conditions and put in place bespoke training and policies so much so that the local Council were satisfied that the business was in a better place to continue to sell alcohol.

Tina runs a pub that serves food and is new to the industry. She initially thought that she could open the doors and serve customers but after a visit from EHO and a rating of 1 star she has realised that she did not have the knowledge or experience to put all the compliance policies in place to achieve a better rating. She therefore contacted The Licensing Guys and we visited her premises and audited the kitchen and produced a comprehensive report along with policies and procedures in place for her to achieve a better rating on the revisit. We also provided staff training for the whole team as this was also not in place. Tina has signed up to our support package for her peace of mind to ensure she has the back up when needed.

• You have maximised your business opportunities We used the services of The Licensing Guys to obtain our licence on our new taproom in Malvern, Despite numerous public representations Nick & Paul gave us the confidence to keep going and they successfully obtained our licence at the hearing, we highly recommend them and thank them for their great service.

We needed to train up more of our team in order to maintain our excellent service to our students and the wider community. Having worked with Nick and Paul in previous roles, I knew I could rely on them not only to provide up to date training to my staff, but to offer it in a professional yet fun and engaging manner. My team thoroughly enjoyed the training, finding it very insightful, and not just for work purposed but for their social life as well – they could finally understand why there were such strict rules re. licencing and how ignoring these could have catastrophic consequences. I would not hesitate to recommend The Licencing Guys – experienced, knowledgeable, engaging – EXPERTS!
