Im going to the UK in december and wondering how easy it is for minors to get into a licensed premise in London? Im 16 and my mate who is also 16 looks far and away 18 or older so im wondering if we will get kicked out straight away or even will be let in. So you know we arent wanting to get drunk or off our face we just wanted to try to get a beer in a pub.

some places you'll probably be alright.. in some you won't, just try around.

that is if you actually look 18 or not.

Try going to a bar near a university.

TS, you would have been cool until about a year ago; me and my mates used to be able to get in pubs underage, especially if it was a barman we knew. But then (luckily as we all turned 18) they introduced the whole "Think 21" crap, and now it's near impossible to get served in pubs as an underager. So I wouldn't hold ou much hope I'm afraid.

Just give me the money and I will buy the alcohol for you.

Yes... Buy.

Not run off with the money that I so desperately need

SU bars are usually the best bet, but be careful they don't start questioning whether you're a student. Do a little research and say you're from the uni's most obscure campus. Also, it's easier if you go to places that are busy because there's usually too much going on to bother IDing everybody.

I got fired because some kid who appeared to be old enough bought booze from me and got ill. It came out that he was underage and I broke the law. So I lost my job and got fined.

You're risking with peoples jobs to get drunk, fucktard.

EDIT: I'm not against you drinking, but for the love of Christ just get your parents to buy some and do it in private (where it's legal)

I give you, inspired by the thread title, Alcohol in the UK:

Right now!

I am a little pissed
I drunk a little bit
Dont know what I want but
I know how to get it
I wanna deploy my lunch and bile cos' I

I wanna be, tipsy!
No dogs body

Alcohol for the UK its coming sometime and maybe
I feel like shit but tell you I feel fine
The local scene's drenched in Jim Beam cos' I

I wanna be wasted!
In the city

How many ways to get what you want
I drink the best, I use the rest...room!
I use the lavatory, I use public indecency cos' I

I wanna be taxi!
The only way to be !

Is this the *slurred speech*
Or is this the *slurred speech*
Or is this my driveway
*slurred speech*
Another country
Another council tenancy

I wanna be *incomprehensible racial slur*
I forgot my name
I'm pissed as Troy!

I've been getting served at pubs here since I was 15, they never ID me or my mates at all.

But I do find off-licenses ID regularly!

Well, actually, you can drink in the pub under the age of 18, as long as you're not in the bar area, obviously it depends on the pub. Most here let kids in.

Really it depends completely on where you go. But to be safe, get a fake ID.

You've got no chance mate. Practically everywhere asks for ID, this whole country is obsessed with underage drinkers at the moment.
Sorry bud, but your chances of being served any alcohol whatsoever are dangerously close to zero.
Your best bet is to sit in the beer garden, get someone else to go in (who can get served), buy pints of beer and bring them back outside. That's what we used to do.

If you're getting beer in a pub, don't forget to order "a pint of beer".
Don't go to the bar and say "can I have a beer please" or you won't get served.
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.

Or just get a fake ID. You're obliged to ask for ID, if they show you one there's no way you could've known so you won't lose a job. Everyone wins.

Where in London you going?

568ml.
Basically, just over half a litre.
But because the British are adamant in their ways of keeping with traditions, we never changed the standard glass of beer volume from imperial to metric.

Yeah, basically a pint is the standard size of a beer in the UK.

You should be able to get a drink with a meal, especially if you go with your parents and they order it, that's alright at your age. Or you can drink in someone's house, that's also legal at your age. I'm generally not IDd, but sometimes you will be so be prepared to get turned away a couple of times. If you can get into a student bar you almost certainly won't be checked, although depending where you go they may ID you to go in. Also, ask for a specific beer, or ask them what they have "on draught" and then have a pint of whatever you like the sound of. If you're in a pub somewhere, ask what is the most popular drink is as there are so many different types of beer.

Oh, and make sure you get proper beer, not lager. It's far superior as a drink.
