Venners has been serving the hospitality industry since 1896 and have long been considered the best in the business. Our founder Edwin Venner, a chartered accountant from a brewing family, was knighted in recognition of his services to the licensed trade and we produced our first computerised results as early as the 1960’s.
Today we continue to develop and maintain our own cutting edge technology and systems to support our clients and provide them with a “one stop shop” for improving hospitality profits and controls.
We employ, not subcontract, a nationwide team of consultants who deliver an exceptional level of reporting, advice and service throughout all of the UK and we are the only company of our type to have internal training accredited by the BII.
Our services include Liquor & Food Stocktaking, Event Profit & Control, Compliance Audit, Inventory & Valuation and Health & Safety, including Food and Fire Safety.
