I will only drink out of 3 cups indoors for tea or coffee so its probably a phobia.Are you fussy?

    I like these for halves, as taken in this pub,sometimes with Gadds' branding:Larkins' Alehouse. Don't really trust them for pints, though. I'm not sure if they are still used, but I liked those multi-sided handled glasses,octagonal perhaps?

    If I ever get a member of staff say do you mind it in a different glass for whatever reason. Standard response don't give a shit as long as it holds a pint.

    Well I am apparently a lady. And the beer was straw coloured.

    It seems to depend where you live. In the North (West) we call them Tall Hats. Never heard of Nonics . Is that a Southern word for a Dimple pot? (Edit- Just Googled it and found it's a Tall Hat with a lump at the top! I must be too young to have heard the word).

    Lees Brewery tried a hybrid of a Tall Hat and a Dimple pot with ridges to put your fingers and thumb in. They were most unpopular and got called a Flower Pot.

    Has anyone got a North/South translation dictionary for sale? (Not the Yorkshire version).

    We used to call straights "sleevers" if we didn't call 'em straights. I too had to google "nonics": they were what I thought they would be,though I'd not taken the word onboard. Further confusion was caused by the American usage "Shaker" to refer to "Tulips" (?). I always thought Shakers were an American Protestant Sect that designed kitchen furniture.
