You have to love a country where customer service is an afterthought everywhere but in the pub.
Evidently this is a policy n most pubs (not just the cute little one I snapped this photo at) however I haven’t seen this to be an issue, almost the opposite. Most of the times my pints are so full I spill 3/4 of it down my hand, leg and the floor as I walk to my seat and are still left with a very full looking pint. Its magic.
Someone needs to let Tim Hortons and Starbucks in on this policy, I swear I have been served drinks from there with 2 inches of space at the top…either that or it is so full it is leaking out of the little blow hole in the lid…can’t win
