Proof of age

Plug operates a Challenge 25 age verification policy. This is a mandatory condition of licensed premises. So, if you are lucky enough to look under 25 you will be asked to prove you are over 18 years of age to gain entry to Plug and when buying alcohol. If you are under 18 years of age you are committing an offence if you attempt to buy alcohol. If the ID that you present is suspected to be false or belonging to someone else, you will be refused entry and asked to hand over the ID and it will be passed to the Police.

It is an offence to use fake ID under the following legislation:

  • Identity Cards Act 2010 Section 6 (1)
  • Forgery and Counterfeiting Act 1981 – use of counterfeit ID
  • Fraud Act 2006 – Possession of Counterfeit ID

We accept the following forms of ID:-
Passport
Driving Licence
ANY 'PASS' accredited ID must have PASS hologram
