Responsible service of Alcohol


Bentleigh RSL believes that individuals have the right to choose to consume alcohol in licensed venues as a form of social activity. As the operator of this venue, we have a responsibility to help minimise the risk of harm to individuals, our staff, other customers, and to the wider community.

As a licensed venue, we have a responsibility to demonstrate best practice in terms of our service of alcohol and to set a positive example to our customers and to other licensees by complying with and, where appropriate, exceeding mandatory compliance regulations.

Ethic in Practice Bentleigh RSL does not promote any practice which may encourage rapid or excessive consumption of alcohol.
