We would suggest that anyone who looks or could be thought to be under the age of 25 brings photographic ID/proof of age with them or we will not be able to serve them. We will refuse to serve anyone at the event who is or appears to be excessively drunk, under the influence of drugs or uses threatening or abusive behaviour towards staff, customers or other guests. We will also refuse to serve anyone who purchases or attempts to purchase alcohol for someone under the age of 18 or someone who has previously been refused alcohol by the bar staff. The decision on such matters will be taken by the bar staff and will be final. The bar staff also reserve the right to close the bar at any time if in their opinion unruly or troublesome behaviour has arisen or is likely to arise within the venue or its environs.

Due to health and safety concerns, especially at marquee events on public or farm land, many venues will not allow glass to be used. Please be sure to confirm this with the venue prior to booking. We strongly advise clients not to use glass at events on public land or on farm land as glasses can be lost and broken causing injury to animals or people at a later date. Adams & Rose will accept no responsibility should such an injury occur, when the client has been advised not to use glass. Adams & Rose will hire all glassware as required. We reserve the right to serve drinks in plastic glasses once the glass has run out. All lost or damaged glasses must be paid for and will be charged to the client after the event. Avoid charges for lost or damaged glass by opting for plastic glasses, these are provided free of charge. As a rule we use polycarbonate reusable glasses for people drinking in our area and disposable cups for people wishing to walk around the venue.
Booking & Payment:
Terms and conditions for bar hire will be conditional to each individual booking. A deposit is required to secure all bookings. Our acceptance of a booking form and full payment of the booking deposit will constitute a legally binding contract between Adams & Rose and the client(s) named on the booking form.
Adams & Rose accepts cash and most major credit and debit cards including Apple Pay however, being a mobile bar, we require a strong internet signal to take card payments. If this is not available, cards cannot be used. Please ensure that your guests are aware of this so that they can have plenty of cash for the duration of the event. We do not offer credit and will not run a tab unless previously agreed.
Temporary Events License (TEN)
Adams & Rose is required to apply for an TEN if we are to run a cash bar at any unlicensed venue (village hall, marquee, country house etc). In order to apply for the license we require a site plan of the venue, maximum capacity and full venue contact details. Adams & Rose take care of the license, the fee and liaise with the venue. As stipulated by the Council, we require a minimum of 60 days notice to apply for a temporary events notice.. Refusal to do so will forfeit the deposit.
In the unlikely event of the venue and/or the event being refused an alcohol license the booking fee less any costs incurred in the TEN application process will be refunded.
Fee and Cancellation Policy
When making any booking a deposit will be taken. If a booking is cancelled at any point this deposit is retained as we regularly have to turn away bookings due to existing bookings.
Our fees are based on the number of guests specified on the booking form and a minimum of 5 hours bar opening time (unless otherwise agreed). Should there be a change to the numbers attending or opening hours, either more or less, it is a condition of the booking that you inform us within 14 days. If we are not well informed of a significant reduction in numbers attending or the hours of service are less than 5, we are entitled to retain the deposit fee paid to cover costs. We have a minimum £800 spend at weddings or celebrations- this will be discussed with you up front so that both parties are happy.
During a private event, if guests are seen to be drinking alcohol which has not been provided by the bar (excluding pre-arranged drinks such as arrival drinks, table wine and toasts) Adams & Rose will inform the client. Should this not be dealt with promptly we reserve the right to retain the deposit fee paid. In the case where arrival drinks or table wine has not been supplied by Adams & Rose.
Where a guest damages Adams & Rose property, the client will be held responsible for the cost of fixing or replacing the item, as the manufacturer sees fit. Any deposit will be retained until the bill is paid and issue resolved. Where damage to Adams & Rose property exceeds the cost of the deposit, a bill for the remaining amount will be presented to the client and payment will be due within 30 days.
