    I've noticed this in a lot of pubs not just JDW. The bar staff pull about 3/4 of a pint, take the money, top up the glass then run off before you can complain about a short measure. I might refuse to pay until I get the (FULL) pint in front of me next time I feel like some fun at the bar staff's expense.

    Other fun things are to reply "yes fine thanks but I'd prefer a beer" when asked "are you all right there?" or give them a suitably short payment for a short measure saying "yes but that's for a pint isn't it?" when they question it.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    No I mean they get the money before they even start on the order. Taking it halfway though a single pint (with the sparkler on) or with draught Guinness has been usual always.

    I've not had that but I've found it common to get short measures in some of my favourite pubs. I bet your problems have been in Central / Inner London aka the UK Capital for pub rip-offs. Apart from just the prices they'll do anything to shamelessly fleece you there.

    The word is that the Exchange in Banbury is due to close next Wednesday but I'm awaiting confirmation.

    Shurely Shome Mishtake? The link points to an article about somebody called Gavin who plays football in Dundee wherever that is!

    sold by JD Wetherspoon to fellow pub company Amber Taverns

    I've never heard of them so looked them up. They have a pub in Rhyl so that doesn't bode well.
    It's one on the 34 from the November list. There seems to be several closing that first week in May.

    Apparently so, just got this email from local CAMRA branch after I asked them if they'd heard;

    Brian, our Pubs Officer, went into the Exchange yesterday and the manager told him that they are not closing.
