"When Covid-19 kicked-in and the UK went into lockdown, so did access to loans. A broker referred me to mcl finance who were happy to offer financial assistance. mcl finance is superb and quick! A few clicks on your phone, signing e-docs, direct debit completion and the money is in your account the next day. I will definitely use this company again."

Hospitality business loans FAQs

Can I borrow money to open a restaurant?

To be eligible for a business loan for a restaurant, you need to have been trading in some capacity for at least 12 months and be turning over more than £15,000 per month. This doesn't have to be from an existing restaurant, though.

If you've started your business at home or from a food truck and you've already got over 12 months of trading history and enough income, we'll be more than happy to consider you for a loan to open up your first restaurant.

Can I get a business loan for a pub?

Eligible businesses in the hospitality industry, including pubs, bars and restaurants, are more than welcome to apply for one of our small business loans. Whether you're looking to secure another lease or make refurbishments to your premises, a loan for pubs can help you welcome back the punters with even better service.

Is a business loan for a restaurant, pub or bar secured?

Some lenders might ask you to secure your assets against a business loan for your restaurant, bar or pub. We only provide access to loans for the hospitality industry that are unsecured, meaning you can get funding with nothing more than a personal guarantee.
