No food and/or drinks are to be consumed on these premises.

Which is the correct word?

Thanks.

"Or" is usually the term used on such signs. I've always wondered if it's so that pedants can't come in eating some food and then say "But it's only having food and drink together that's prohibited according to the sign! I'm not drinking anything so it should be fine."
