18 is the legal drinking age in England, although you can have wine with a meal at 14 providing you are with an adult. Some pubs allow under 18s on the premises (normally if they sell food) again providing they are accompanied by an adult, but others only admit over 18s. over 8 years ago
Beer or wine with meal is 16, but this is at the landlords discretion - it's best to ask first. Also bear in mind that many of the staff who work in these restaurants do not know about the laws for alcohol consumption with food, so they will refuse automatically.
The legal age without food is 18 but if you look under 25 it's best to carry ID as many places will ID people who look under 25. about 8 years agoAnswered by Cath via WorldNomads.com
