PUB OFF SALES

 

Hospitality Ulster has received clarification that the NI Executive has banned all off-sales from pubs.

 

At this point it is a total ban on any off-sales of alcohol from pubs. Authorities are citing previous incidents as the reasoning for this decision, when a limited number of irresponsible premises allowed people to purchase off-sales for consumption directly outside of their premises.

 

Hospitality Ulster is in discussion with the Northern Ireland Executive Office on the impact of this decision, and are also trying to get clarification on the status of off-sales attached to pubs with a separate entrance, along with clarification as to whether pubs can do delivery off-sales, and also what time that delivery ceases. I.E. if it has been ordered before 8pm can it be delivered afterwards?

 

Further updates will be provided as soon as possible.
