The Piwakawaka Restaurant & Bar Upper Hutt, Wellington

Responsible Hosts

Assuring a healthy, safe, friendly environment

The management and staff of The Piwakawaka Restaurant & Bar believe we have a responsibility to provide an environment that is not only comfortable and welcoming but where alcohol is served responsibly. Because of this, we have implemented the following Host Responsibility policy.

Customers who are visibly intoxicated will not be served alcohol, will be asked to leave the premises and will be encouraged to take advantage of safe transport options.

It is against the law to serve alcohol to minors. If we are in doubt about your age, we will ask for identification. Acceptable forms of proof of age are a photo driver’s licence, an 18+ Evidence of Age card or a current passport.

Our policy is zero tolerance for aggressive, coercive or violent behaviour.

A good range of food is always available. Menus are visible at all times.

We provide and actively promote a range of low-alcohol and non-alcoholic drinks, including low-alcohol beer, fruit juices, soft drinks, tea and coffee. Iced water is available free of charge at all times.

We promote a range of transport options to get you home safely.

We encourage people to have a designated driver. We will make the driver’s job more attractive by providing an interesting range of low-alcohol and alcohol-free drinks.

All of these services are well promoted, along with signage required under the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012.

We maintain a training and management policy to give our staff the skills and support they need to do their job responsibly.

Please be our guest and take advantage of the services we offer.

We pride ourselves on being responsible hosts.
