so I'm 16 and I can legally drink cider or something with my meal in a restaurant. if I'm out with friends who are my age can I order a cider with my meal or does an adult have to be there?

I’m pretty sure an adult has to be present with you at the table

Think an adult has to be there. Won't you need some form of ID too to prove you're 16?

I've no idea. I've only ever had a drink with a meal with one occasion and an adult was with me but they don't ask for id

It might depend on the restaurant. Might be worth bringing some just in case

Watch the first episode of the Inbetweeners ❤. They explain it quite vividly.

You will most likely need an adult there, so at least one person being 18 or over. Sounds like you won't be getting that drink then

ahhh that's such a pain, you'd think if I brought my passport as ID to prove that i am in fact 16 that they'd allow me to drink without an adult present

No, because the law then says alcohol can only be bought at the age of 18. So no adult, no alcohol. Sorry.

Technically, you will need an adult. If you're there before 9 you won't have any issue being served without ID if you're at a restaurant.

fair enough I suppose. the reason I'm asking is because I'll be on a residential with school for a few nights and id like to go to a nearby restaurant with a few friends. I could ask if one of the teachers could come too as the adult but i dont know if it would go down well if I told the teacher I need her with us in the restaurant so that I can.drink alcohol

that would not go down well at all. I would drop the alcohol idea, if I was you.

You need to be eating a meal with adults and may need to provide ID.

you must be 18 to buy alcohol and asking a teacher to do this is inappropriate and they aren't allowed to do this, you could get them into problems by simply asking.
