Some clubs have a club licence to sell alcohol. If they do have a licence, they need to comply with the law. This means that they can ONLY supply alcohol to:
- member of the club concerned; or
- a person who is on the premises at the invitation of, and is accompanied by, a member of the club concerned; or
- an authorised visitor (means a member of some other club with which the club concerned has an arrangement for reciprocal visiting rights for members)
If you believe there are issues relating to their licence you can discuss this with a licensing inspector at your local council, or with your local police.
