Hello Everybody,
I am having some confusion on the following sentences.

"This classification applies if you prepare or cook food, drinks, or refreshments and sell them for consumption other than on the premises"

My problem is on the phrase "other than on the premises". What does it mean? What is the meaning of "premises" in the phrase?

This may be simple matter for you natives, but I don't get the point clearly.

I really appreciate for your help

Thank you
