Because of COVID restrictions, the French House in Soho, which used to serve only half-pints, is serving pints for the first time. Our man at the bar, the Oldie's John Bowling, said, 'I'm a traditionalist. I liked the halves idea. It was unique to the pub – part of its USP. I don't want the world to be standardised. Still, they should double the measure for wine, too!'
