Devon & Cornwall police helping contain the virus by pushing rules that will lead to people visiting multiple pubs rather than just one.

Clown world.

Two hours and two or three pints is enough for me.

Definitely. It's just the right point to move onto the next pub.

I share your sentiment! I have to go (there is a gentlemens agreement between some lifelong friends involved), but wouldn't be at all surprised to last a couple of hours and be back home in a foul mood.

We shall see.

That makes sense of the headline on this story which baffled me but I hadn't read it.

Backtracking in place!

In a clarifying statement similar to their Twitter response, a spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "For clarity, this is in relation to Government guidance that has been shared with restaurants and pub landlords to consider.

"Neither Devon and Cornwall Police, nor Dorset police will be monitoring how long people remain within a pub; this sits with individual licensees if they wish to introduce measures that limit how long a customer remains within their establishment."

Nope.  You have to give your name and contact details and the mail yesterday were stating that the price of a pint is being increased by 1.50.   o.O  it’s already too expensive to drink in a pub.

Now I am confused, no licensing hours any more?

Plus perspex, etc.  I would imagine most people have found a cheaper and better way by now.  RIP.

Well.....

I wouldn't say that you absolutely have to.

The government has asked pubs and other hospitality venues, when they reopen, to collect and maintain records of customers and share them, where requested, with NHS Test and Trace. This is so that NHS Test and Trace can identify and inform those who may have been exposed to COVID-19, having been in close contact with somebody who has tested positive for the virus.

All customers, or the lead member of a customer group, will be provided with an NHS Test and Trace form (pictured) and, if requested, a pencil. The form will ask for a name, contact phone number, date of visit and arrival/departure time.

Children under 16 will not be asked individually to provide their details, since they can visit only when accompanied by an adult parent/carer, who can complete the form as ‘lead member’.

Customers will then be asked to place the completed form in a box, when they leave the pub.

No externally-imposed 90 minutes / two hours limit.

I was subtlety making the point about the stupidity of such rule making, of which we have had an excess.  Plus I question the legality of a lot which has been implied as being enforceable.

Used to be five pints in four hours when I was in my late teens and twenties. :D And maybe the odd Southern Comfort & lemonade after.

O.o

3 in an hour is fairly leisurely for myself. 

Few of my pals do 4-5 in an hour no bother.

Fucking animals :Old:

I turned up a bit late to Oktoberfest once and tried to catch up.  Only half a mass behind.  I was very ill!

What, November?

It's actually in September!  An American once asked me upon his arrival at the airport where it was, in October.  I felt for him!

PS:  Of course, for those few capable of really laughing at helles, there's always starkbier during(?) Lent!  Served in small clay mugs due to the toxicity!  The Bavarian answer to the Amsterdam coffeshop!

This will work at Spoons - one member of the party fills in a form with the names, contact detail, arrival and leaving times and posts it in a box as they leave the pub.

Jezza and Diane will be regular attenders of my local Spoons....

I could never drink pints or half pints in volume. Unfortunately I went onto spirits early in my twenties. A quarter bottle was one drink before going out and downed easily with half an hour.

In my mid twenties I had a female lodger who easily downed numerous pints like drinking a yard of ale. I’ve never seen anyone else drink like her. After that she knocked back vodkas.

Unfortunately she never quit drink and died last year. I’m surprised she lasted so long!
