Some SS pubs have notices saying children canít stand in the bar area, others donít allow children in after certain times and others have notices saying no admission to children.  Saw the latter one this summertime in a coastal pub.  I know plenty of shop owners who refuse access to groups of children.

Sorry didn't realize it was unlawful to buy crisps at the bar unless you were 18.
No doubt any child entering without a parent would soon be outed especially in this particular establishment.

The  assumption is that they are allowed in! In some they aren't at all, managers discretion.

I fully agree Melanie, a cracking pub.

I probably will never understand why SS go the manager way, the Ebor is maybe the best pub SS have in the UK.

But hey, Hump can afford to go long times with establishments closed and not trading with zero income via sillyness.

He was lucky to be born into a large family company, not born to be a good business person.

Although we are all fans of SS products, the branding and treatment of staff and customers is a real issue.

Why didn't the "Dad" go to the bar to order the crisps?

It is hard enough for licence holders as it is without pushing laws for no good reason.

What if a kid was in the pub and ordering without a parent?

I agree with the replies but all the lad was trying to do was by a packet of crisps not alcohol congratulation to the manager for his petty Christmas Day attitude.

:() Is it really true that a 16 year old can be refused service at the bar when asking only for a packet of crisps. He was with his Dad on Christmas lunchtime and drinking a soft drink?

Personally, I would have no issue serving an under 18 with soft drinks and snacks.  However, service is always at the discretion of the business owner, manager and staff.

If I remember correctly, 15-17 year olds can have certain alcoholic drinks in a pub (or other licensed premises such as restaurants) if they are with an adult, and eating a meal at the same time.  Only the adult can buy the alcoholic drink.

Yes a manager can refuse to serve anybody.   Also some Sam Smiths pub licences don't allow under 18's in the bars.
