Re: “White Horse Pub proves that there's nothing bland about British cuisine

Gareth, you're mistaken sir. The imperial pint (568 mls) is used in the United Kingdom and Ireland and to some extent in other Commonwealth nations. In the United States, two pints are used: a liquid pint (473 mls) and a less-common dry pint (551 mls). Each of these pints is one-eighth of its respective gallon but the gallons differ and the imperial pint is about 20% larger than the US liquid pint. This difference dates back to 1824, when the British Weights and Measures Act standardised various liquid measures throughout the British Empire, while the United States continued to use the earlier English measures. The imperial pint consists of 20 imperial fluid ounces and the US liquid pint is 16 US fluid ounces, making the imperial fluid ounce about 4% smaller than the US fluid ounce. Hope this helps.

Re: “White Horse Pub proves that there's nothing bland about British cuisine

Actually, I think a couple of observations made by reviewers here should be slightly corrected.

1. A 'pint' in the UK is an 'imperial' pint: 20 fluid ounces and not 16 US fluid ounces. A British pint is about 4% smaller than a US pint.

2. Shepherd's Pie is made with lamb; Cottage Pie is made with beef.
