    Did you go back the next day for a repeat performance? Sounds like fun.

    The place where I had probably the worst OBB of my life.

    The 10% is indeed a papal bull from Mr Humphrey, pubs have been shut and people sacked for ignoring it and giving top ups.

    I think the legislation says a pint of beer should be 95% liquid, ie not including the head, however IIRC that section hasn't actually been activated by the right Minister so local council Weights and Measures departments don't enforce it.

    I don't know when the silly 'Famous' prefix was added, but probably after it was rebuilt in the late '50s following a V1 strike over 10 years earlier.
