    Some lovely old shots there. Particularly liked the one of the turkeys for sale, hanging above the bar!

    The guidelines can be found here. Interesting that pint glasses are always oversized. I'm not sure the "after the head collapses" bit makes that much difference, in my experience there's not much liquid in the head.

    That's a lot better than the man milk my mate found gracing a toilet seat in The Wagon Works (JD Wetherspoon) when he went the toilet in there last month at 10.30 am in the morning.
