hello- are a3 licensed restaurants allowed to have customers pick up food for takeaway?
No it doesn't. Is that what you have for your takeaway?
My understanding is you should have A5.
just asking- as i have read that a3 licenses allow foods to be consumed on premises and off premises at some references and others state that a3 and a5 are seperate-
Surely your local council is best placed to tell you?
How did your opening in September?
opened October the first- business is picking up-
Where is your restaurant based, my local nando's is on a A3 but they have a line dedicated for people who have called in an order to take it away am based in London.
hi- based in fulham- i can't really find any reliable informatione explaining if we are allowed to sell takeaway-
i had someone inform me that we are allowed on condition that it does not exceed a certain percentage- the majority percentage of sales being from eat-in-
any ideas anyone?
on an A3 permit you can offer take away with no problems or any restrictions what so ever, A3 governs the fact you should supply certain facilities such as toilet for those customers that will be sitting in the restaurant and it has no restrictions on offering any take away facility.
does that include having our own delivery drivers or having a contract with a delivery company?
Correct, take away through your own or third party supplier.
'i can't really find any reliable information explaining if we are allowed to sell takeaway'-
Surely as I mentioned above that would your Council. They issue the licenses and will tell you what they permit in the particular area in which you are located.
I am not an expert in restaurants but have some experiences with licenses. I understood that not all A3 licenses included takeaways and not all areas are the same, as the Council may have zones where they restrict business use.
That was my understanding too.
It was also my understanding that you would sort this before you started trading.
