RESTAURANT LIQUOR LICENCE SUSPENDED FOR SERVING ALCOHOL TO UNDER 18S - NSW

14 December 2015

A Lidcombe restaurant has become the fourth NSW venue to have its liquor licence suspended for serving alcohol to under 18s.

The liquor licence of Palbok BBQ Pty Ltd, trading as Palbok House, was suspended for 21 days until 16 December after serving spirits to a group of teenagers.

Under new laws introduced by the NSW Government last December, licensees can have their liquor licences suspended for up to 28 days for convictions of serving alcohol to minors.

The Royal Hotel in Temora became the first venue to face a suspension under the escalated sanctions scheme in June followed by the Liquor Stax bottle shop at Terrigal in September and the Liquorland bottle shop at the Eastgate Shopping Centre in Bondi Junction in October.
 
“Preventing the sale of alcohol to minors is easily achieved by requiring customers to produce a valid evidence of age document prior to being served," OLGR Director of Compliance & Enforcement Anthony Keon said.
