At the moment, we've got a salad bar which is very popular. We'll also have a fully-licensed restaurant by the end of the year. What does "fully-licensed restaurant" mean?
john liaoWhat does "fully-licensed restaurant"...
It is permitted to serve wine, beer and other alcoholic beverages. ...
 In the UK you need a license to sell alcoholic drinks, so this means that your restaurant could sell alcoholic drinks.
I don't think the fully adds any meaning, though it might impress the ignorant.
ps. Cross-posted with Mr Micawber.
Thomas TompionI don't think the fully adds any meaning
That crossed my mind, but then I realized that in some countries there are different licenses for beer, wine and harder liquor. Some restaurants just have a beer license.

The second sentence is wrong, in my view.
