  • What facilities do you need to operate?
    To operate efficiently, we require access to electricity and water. Additionally, proximity to waste disposal facilities is beneficial for the cleanup process.
  • What are set-up requirements?
    We require a flat, stable, and safe surface for our horsebox bar to be set-up. Access to electricity and water is also necessary. Please ensure that there is ample space for our team to safely set up the bar and any additional equipment required for your event.
  • How long will set-up and dismantle of the bar take?
    The setup and dismantling times may vary depending on the size and complexity of your event and location. Our team will work efficiently to minimise disruption, but we recommend allowing a few hours for both setup and takedown.
  • Do we have to apply for any licenses?
    Depending on your event location and the sale of alcohol, some licenses and permits may need to be obtained. The good news it that we will do this as part of our service charge. We will also provide any additional guidance and support in this process to ensure legal compliance.
  • What level of guest numbers can you cater for?
    We work with various events from 50 persons upwards. Our biggest so far has been over 10,000 people in attendance!
  • Do you have insurance?
    The Blind Horse are fully insured with Public Liability Insurance.
  • Do we need to provide staff?
    No, you won't need to provide staff. Our professional and experienced team will handle all aspects of the bar service, ensuring your guests are well taken care of.
  • What types of payment can you accept at the event?
    We accept cash payments and major credit/debit cards. If you prefer, we can also arrange for contactless payment options to streamline the process for your guests.
  • What types of drinks can you offer?
    At the Blind Horse we don't have a specific menu and instead prefer to create bespoke options to suit each individual event. We work well with local breweries, Stewart Brewing and South Loch Gin, however (within reason) can also stock virtually any other drinks or brands you require. This ensures that there's something for everyone to enjoy at your event.
  • Can you serve draught beer?
    Yes, depending on number of attendees, we can sell multiple draught options at same time (including Guinness).
  • Do you offer drinks packages?
    Not as such, as we prefer to work with our clients on exactly what they require and create bespoke menus for each event.
  • Can I customise the drinks menu?
    Yes, you can! We offer customisable drink menus to suit your event's unique theme and requirements. Our team will work closely with you to create a tailored menu that reflects your vision.
  • What events have you operated at?
    We have an annual Edinburgh Fringe popup, both the Meadows and Roslin Festivals, many Highland Games, weddings, corporate events and birthday parties. On a permanent basis, we own and operate 4 Edinburgh based venues too!
  • Are there non-alcoholic options?
    Certainly! We offer a range of non-alcoholic beverages, including mocktails and soft drinks, so that all your guests can find something they like.
  • Can you cater for dietary requirements?
    Absolutely! We are happy to accommodate any dietary requirements and preferences. Please inform us in advance of any specific dietary needs, and we will ensure there are suitable options available for your guests.
