Have you ever been refused a glass of water and told you have to by a bottle? Know where your rights!!

A lot of people are under the false impression that any establishment that sells food must give free tap water when you ask for it. Some bars and clubs say they don't sell food so they don't have to give you free water.

The truth is that it's nothing to do with food but alcohol. Any licensed pub, bar or restaurant that sells alcohol has to give you free water if you ask for it.

The link bellow is a parliamentary document that shows our parliament intends to ensure our free tap water is of even better quality:

Quote: "On the provision of tap water, we stated in the existing mandatory licensing conditions that free tap water must be provided to customers on request. We are strengthening that condition to state that free potable water must be provided to customers. That will ensure that the water is of sufficient quality to be consumed. It will also provide premises with flexibility over how they provide water as, for some, it may be more appropriate to provide free water in bottles. "

http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201415/cmgeneral/deleg4/140908/140908s01.htm

Remember it's places licensed to sell alcohol and not food so coffee shops and Greggs can still say you have to pay for your water.

I was in Pizza Express once and ordered a bottle of Pinot Grigio and they misheard and brought me a bottle of San Pellagrino.

I don't even like fizzy water but I was too polite to say anything so I drank it anyway lol X)

It used to be but the link refers to legislation that is national (unsure about Scotland or NI).

Big notice on menu says you must buy a drink,the chain in question is cook and indis world buffet,if you perchance manage to obtain food without purchase of a drink let the good people of Glasgow know how.

loads of nightclubs iv been to have refused free glass of water they then sell you bottled water and remove the lid that really gets to me why they remove and keep the lid. iv also been to night clubs that will give you the free water once or twice but dare you go back and ask for another the bouncers remove you like your scum they just don't seem to accept that some of us are designated drivers having fun with out alcohol inside us. Some night clubs are better than others.

The whole bottled water thing makes me laugh, no one pre 80s walked around all day with a plastic bottle of water. What a clever bit of marketing going on there. Brainwashing the public into buying something thats free from a tap.

In our local Chinese restaurant if you asked for tap water they would charge you 20p a glass.

I've never been refused or told to pay for any drinking water whenever I've been out. They usually just ask if tap water is ok and that's about it.

Depends on your provider, seriously, some treat the water differently to others so you get a regional difference.
