I thought it was illegal under the licensing laws to charge for tap water


Alcohol licensing conditions

If your premises sells or supplies alcohol, you must now hold an age verification policy and ensure you offer smaller serving measures to your customers.

In April this year we announced the first three conditions of the Licensing Act 2003 (mandatory licensing conditions) order 2010. They apply to all licensed premises and those with a club premises certificate in England and Wales. They were:

    a ban on irresponsible promotions
    a ban on dispensing alcohol directly into customers' mouths
    mandatory provision of free tap water
