Ooh

In the old days trading standards used to send in 12 year olds to buy booze and test if the licencee was obeying the law. These days they use 17 year olds with beards to trick people. As a result we have this "think 25!" crap everywhere, I still can't get served and I have zero respect for the authorities as their attitude is totally wrong. They're not out to catch those flouting the law deliberately, they're out to give people on minimum wage, usually just starting out in life, a criminal record just to get their numbers up.


Depending on the type of pub I'd probably politely note to the landlord the problem in case it was someone new who wasn't aware of the law. If it was somewhere where I'd get my face punched in for mentioning it, I'd say nowt.

HOWEVER.... if it were a pint of ale, I'd refuse service and ask for someone with a proper pulling arm.

I know it's

legal for someone under the age of 18 to serve behind a bar as long as each alcoholic drink they pour they get the nod of the licence holder

@babyblade

that only applies to 17 year olds i'm afraid, i left the pub, it is enough to close the pub in this modern age.

@philtheidiot

i agree with you about test purchasing, its pointless and the only area of the law where "entrapment" is allowed. its wrong on every level but is a differant issue to be served by a minor at 11.30 pm

I was in the pub trade

but wasn't sure about the youngest age you could legally serve.

 

Got out nearly 5 years ago and never employed anyone under the age of 18 anyway, remember one of the new licencing questions was this scenario.

 

Never again, been asked to take over our local pub recently but I don't even go to the pub anymore let alone make it my line of work again.
