Wind them up buy two halfs instead of a pint if they give you a short measure. The thickness of a pencil on two halfs is less than that of a pint due to the smaller glass. Better still ask for two halfs and a empty pint glass, it might get you thrown out but hay lots of pubs out there willing to take your money off you.

The glasshouse stores hasn't had cask for at least the last 5 years I've been drinking in there. Neither does the White Horse which is always a disappointing pub

Currently the Glasshouse Stores doesn't have any hand pumps, so no cask OBB there.

There's a sign outside the Duke of Argyll saying that it'll reopen in November (just in time for the Christmas drinking season ?).

I get the feeling it had been sitting there a while. Hardly anybody in there. Real shame as I had high hopes.

Best cask I've had in London is at the Swiss Cottage.

Last time we were there (18 months or so) we didn't get a great pint of OBB cask anywhere. Although it was ok at the Lyceum Tav, Princess Louise and Cittie of York. Terrible at Blue Posts and Angel at St Giles.

The landlord at the Bricklayers arms was considering putting it in but don't know if he has. He would look after it if he did I bet.

I've said for a long time, cask OBB is the best pint ever, and also the worst.

Not heard of this!
I think 5% is about right, the width of a pencil.  I like a head on me pint.

Worst pint of OBB Cask I have ever had.

Really?? God, a couple or three years back it was among the best in London. I made a special trip to see, and it was. It needs to turn over quickly does cask. Only at it's best for around 48 hours.

Why get angry or upset say put count the number of profanities and there type then send details to Humphrey in a nice hand written letter. If he is throwing good paying customers out for bad language he will have no hesitation throwing payed employees out.
