The Licencing Law states:
You can be stopped, fined or arrested by police if you’re under 18 and drinking alcohol in public.
If you’re under 18, it’s against the law:
· for someone to sell you alcohol
· to buy or try to buy alcohol
· for an adult to buy or try to buy alcohol for you
· to drink alcohol in licensed premises (such as a pub or restaurant)
However, if you’re 16 or 17 and accompanied by an adult, you can drink (but not buy) beer, wine or cider with a meal.
