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

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.

why wind the managers up they are only trying to keep humprey and the customers happy,and keep employed at the same time.if you want to upset humphrey stop spending your money in the pubs and leave the staff alone

I think Chutney got his maths a little wrong.  If you drink halves instead of pints because of the 5% you will lose out by around 4 cubic cm's per half.

That's if I've got my math's right  $$*
