House Policy

The Out Back Shack employees are here to ensure the safety of our patrons with a positive, social and healthy environment.


Valid government-issued ID as approved by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) is required at all times. We will ID everyone who appears to be under 30 years of age. AGCO approved ID, which must contain a photo, includes:

  • Ontario Driver’s Licence
  • Passport
  • Armed Forces Card
  • Citizenship card
  • Liquor Control Board of Ontario BYID Card

All fake IDs will be confiscated and will be turned over to the London Police Force. Anyone using a fake ID will be banned for a minimum of four months. Any attempted use of altered ID will also result in a minimum ban of four months.

Right to Refuse

We have the right to refuse entry to any patron. We will escort out of our premises any patron who:

  • Breaks the underage access policy;
  • Is caught fighting or assaulting other patrons;
  • Is using or selling illegal substances;
  • Is intoxicated;
  • Is harassing, threatening or endangering the safety of staff or patrons

All of these infractions may be subject to further discipline. All serious cases will be reported to Campus Security Services .

Underage Students

Any underage Fanshawe Student who enters our licensed premises must abide by our underage access policy. The most important rule is there will be no handling, holding or consumption of any alcoholic beverage.

Theft or Damage

Theft or damage to the FSU or College property will be reported to Campus Security Services . This will result in charges, possible further discipline and payment for the cost of the damages.


We are committed to not knowingly serving any patron to the point of intoxication. To ensure that commitment, you will be cut off service if any staff member believes you show signs of intoxication.

We do not serve double shots or allow patrons to purchase two drinks at a time for their own consumption. All pitchers of draught will be served to a minimum of two patrons.

End of Bar Service

AGCO legislation states that all signs of alcoholic beverage consumption must be removed from the licensed area 30 minutes after the bar ends the service of alcohol. Please respect our staff as they close our operations each evening.

No video or audio recording is permitted within the OBS without prior approval from the management.

Dos & Donts

  • Don’t drink and drive;
  • Do be a responsible drinker and keep an eye out for your friends — you know them better than anyone;
  • Don’t let friends walk home alone (even if it’s not that far away). You can contact Campus Security Services for a "Safe Walk" escort to any location on London Campus, including your vehicle, a bus stop or campus residence.


Our staff consists mostly of students just like you — feel free to ask them any questions about policies or standard practices on campus. The Out Back Shack is trying to achieve a safe, enjoyable social environment for all students and guests.

Our staff is held accountable for their actions. Please direct any complaints to Dan Paterson, Food & Beverage Manager at 519.452.4109 x16316 or
