Responsible Service of Alcohol

Canterbury League Club promotes Responsible Service of Alcohol in the best interest of its members, guests, staff and community. Responsible serving of alcohol is vital for legal, health and community reasons. Our society is now less tolerant of the irresponsible use of alcohol that leads to drunkenness, drink driving, unacceptable behaviour and underage drinking.

Canterbury League Club has adopted the following House Practices, which provide the framework for the Responsible Service of Alcohol:

  • In order to prevent underage drinking, we will require acceptable Proof of Age to be provided when requested.
  • Persons who are believed to be intoxicated will be Refused Admission to our premises.
  • We will display and refer to our Intoxication Signs in order to support our responsible attitude and meet legislative requirements.
  • Patrons in this establishment will be Denied Service and Required to Leave the Premises if they are considered to be intoxicated.
  • We will not allow any indecent, violent or quarrelsome conduct on our premises.
  • We will educate our staff and our patrons as part of our Duty of Care to ensure they understand the implications of and abide by our Responsible Service of Alcohol Practices.
  • We will support and actively promote initiatives to minimise drink driving in order to safeguard the wellbeing of our patrons.

Canterbury League Club will initiate these practices by:

  • Implementing, monitoring and modifying the House Practices on an on-going basis.
  • Preventing under-age drinking by insisting on the production of acceptable documentation such as a current photo driver’s licence, passport or proof of age card as detailed in the Australian ID Checking Guide.
  • Preventing intoxication by recognising the signs of intoxication and refusing to serve anyone to the point of intoxication. We will deny entry or service to anyone we believe is already intoxicated.
  • Promoting the service of non-alcoholic beverages, low alcohol beers and food.

Our responsible serving practices aim to:

  • Prevent under-age drinking.
  • Prevent intoxication.
  • Prevent violent or disruptive behaviour.
  • Prevent drink driving.
