Insulated Garden Bars

Bring the pub home; transform your garden into a custom-built garden bar. Our fully insulated designs ensure year-round comfort, meaning you can enjoy your favourite drinks and good company no matter the weather.
Want a classic pub feel with a dartboard, bar stools, and good times on tap? Or perhaps a chic cocktail lounge is more your style? With our garden bars, you can create the perfect setting to unwind and entertain.

Enclosed Garden Bars and Pubs

Don’t settle for a makeshift garden bar that can’t withstand the elements or accommodate your guests. Embrace a space that’s built to last. Robust steel facing and quadcore insulation ensure year-round comfort, while double-glazed doors offer panoramic views of your surroundings. With clean lines and a modern look, your garden bar will be the new centrepiece of your property.

    FAQs

    Garden Bar FAQs

    Our garden bars are designed with permitted development in mind, so you usually won’t need planning permission. That’s the case for most houses, even in protected areas like conservation areas or areas of outstanding natural beauty.

    But, if you live in a flat or a listed building, the rules are different – you’ll always need planning permission.

    Our garden bars are designed to suit a variety of budgets and needs. Our starting prices, inclusive of VAT, are as follows:

    • The Snug: Micro Garden Bar, 3.3 x 2.2m, £17,146 inc. VAT
    • The Studio: Mini Garden Bar,  4.4m x 3.3m, £19,890 inc. VAT
    • The Lodge: Small Garden Bar, 5.5m x 3.3m,  £24,480 inc. VAT
    • The Lodge Plus: Medium Garden Bar, 6.6m x 3.3m, £26,350 inc. VAT
    • The Retreat: Large Garden Bar, 5.5m x 4.4m, £27,200.00 inc. VAT
    • The Retreat Plus: Extra Large Garden Bar, 6.6m x 4.4m, £27,880.00 inc. VAT
    • The Estate: XXL Garden Bar, 7.7m x 3.3m, £27,818 inc. VAT

    These prices provide a starting point. Your final cost will depend on your chosen finishes, fixtures, and any additional features or customisation. Contact our team for an estimated quotation today.

    It’s perfectly legal to have a bar in your garden in the UK and serve alcohol to friends and family. You don’t need a licence for personal consumption or private parties.

    However, if you plan to sell alcohol from your garden bar, you’ll need to obtain the appropriate licences from your local council. This involves acquiring both a premises licence and a personal licence, as per UK law.

    So, as long as you’re not running a commercial operation, feel free to enjoy your garden bar with friends and family without any legal concerns.

    The best size for your garden bar depends entirely on your needs and the space available in your garden.

    If you’re looking for a small spot fit to house a bar and a few guests, our Snug model (3.3m x 2.2m) offers a compact yet functional space, perfect for a few friends and a well-stocked bar.

    For those who love to entertain larger groups, our Lodge (5.5m x 3.3m) or Retreat (6.6m x 3.3m) models provide ample space for a full bar setup.

    If you have a spacious garden and ambitious plans for your bar, our Estate (6.6m x 4.4m) or Estate Plus (7.7m x 3.3m) models offer the largest footprint, allowing you to create a standout experience.

    A solid, level foundation is essential for your garden bar’s stability and longevity, and for safely installing electrical wiring. While you’re welcome to choose your own foundation installer, we highly recommend timber/ground screw based solutions.

    Ground screw foundations, such as the RADIX system, offer a range of benefits. They’re not only faster and easier to install than concrete, but also more environmentally friendly, requiring less excavation and producing significantly less carbon emissions. Ground screws are incredibly strong and durable, capable of supporting the weight of your garden bar and any additional features you choose to add.

    Plus, they’re versatile enough to be used on various terrain types, including slopes and uneven ground.

    Whether you choose our ground screw or opt for another provider, ensure your chosen foundation is suitable for the size and weight of your garden bar, as well as any electrical connections you plan to install.
