about us

Converted from a 1973 ice cream van,

Mr Squiffy offers something even better than a 99:

..a mobile bar with charm, tailored to your needs, for your event

After being uninspired by mobile bar suppliers at weddings and other events, we decided to use our considerable experience of running the award winning Cellar on City Road, Chester (Good Beer Guide 2013, 2014 & 2015; local CAMRA Pub of the Year 2014 & 2015) to create a mobile bar that is truly different to everything else out there: we offer the tailor-made bar, with genuine variety and style, that others claim but can’t deliver.

mr squiffy

Mr Squiffy is a 1973 vintage Bedford ice cream van lovingly converted

into a fabulous fully-functioning mobile bar. Being both handsome

and charming, Mr Squiffy provides the booze and a good photo opp.

He’s the perfect backdrop for your pictures and doesn’t mind you

hopping aboard for a couple of snaps.


Equipped with coolers, 4 beer lines, fridges, ice, glasses, licence,

white or coloured lighting that can be coordinated to any look you’re

going for, and everything you need to help your party run seamlessly

and with style, Mr Squiffy has it all.


You create a drinks menu that's personal to you, with the extensive drinks

offering of The Cellar to choose from. You can even choose your ice cream van

music. The traditional ice cream theme Greensleeves, your favourite band,

something you’ve put together for your guests, or a more modern ice cream

melody (Ice Ice Baby?). The possibilities are endless.


He’s an all-rounder so Mr Squiffy will be the perfect plus-one for all

manner of events: birthday bashes, weddings, festivals, garden parties,

sporting occasions, or any social soiree with a marquee.With our

experience at The Cellar, knowledgeable staff, extensive drink selection,

and innate understanding of what makes a good party, we do all of

the work whilst Mr Squiffy offers you the opportunity to create

something truly unique for your event.




Products and Prices- 2016




Option A – The Guests Pay


Everyone pays for their drinks with cash or card, just as they would in their local pub.

We are committed to never charging more for a product than we would in our bar. A deposit

of £200 is required from the host and will be refunded when an agreed limit (depending on stock and staff levels)

is reached.


Option B – The Host runs a tab


An agreed limit is paid in advance by the host. Once that limit is reached, the guests pay as in

Option A. We can implement a token system so there is a fair distribution of drinks among your guests. Alternatively, the host's contribution can be used to subsidise drink prices for guests throughout the event. No deposit is required if the agreed tab is more than £500.


Option C – The Host pays


As the host of what will no doubt be a party to remember, you may feel like treating your guests.

A deposit will be required and the balance of drinks drunk in excess of the deposit amount will be payable

at the end of the night.




The Classic Wedding - £15 per head


Pimm’s or prosecco for all guests on arrival

Half a bottle of wine per person during dinner

Prosecco for toasts


Jugs of water with ice and slices for all tables


Beer Without Fear £20 per head


Our infamous Cellar beer club, Beer Without Fear, takes to the road.


Six of the finest beers sourced from all over the world with explanations and beer history from our

very own ale aficionado, Andrew “Aki” Atkinson.


Different options and combinations can be discussed


As we’re sure you can imagine, a great deal of work goes into making your bar experience run

smoothly. We will organise stock ordering, staffing, purchasing, glass hire, license applications

and the preparation and dismantling of the bar. We hope you will understand therefore, that we

generally provide a full bar service as the sole provider of drinks on the day.

the cellar






The Cellar has one of the most extensive ranges of beers in the whole country with 22 keg taps,

6 real ale hand pumps, and over 100 bottles from all over the world in stock. We work with a great

independent wine supplier so our wines and fizz are not only of the very best quality, offering

familiar favourites such as New Zealand Sauvignon or Australian Shiraz, but they are also far

removed from your bog-standard: you won’t find them in the supermarkets or the pub round the corner.

Our spirit selection is extensive and ranges from your classic to the more unusual and sublime.

We have some of the best bands around playing from 10pm every weekend and with the bar open till 2:30,

you’re sure to have a brilliant night.Our downstairs basement bar is free to hire and is perfect for a party

or a function. With your own attentive, private bar staff and a room you can decorate as much or as little

 as you want for free, it’s a bit of a no brainer really.
