Secondary supply is the most common way young people obtain alcohol; this is where an adult purchases alcohol on behalf of a person under the age of 18. It is against the law to provide or supply alcohol to a minor on licenced premises. We will refuse service if we believe an adult is purchasing alcohol on behalf of a minor or will supply alcohol to a minor. We will do the same if we believe the purchase is for an intoxicated person. If we overhear a conversation between an adult and minor or an intoxicated person or witness any actions that suggest the purchase is for the minor or an intoxicated person, we will refuse the sale. We will always err on the side of caution in the interest of safe and responsible service of alcohol.
