Two drinks and you’re out?

It’s been widely reported today that Wetherspoon’s are applying a policy of allowing adults accompanying children to have a maximum of two alcoholic drinks. At first sight this appeared to be another example of political correctness gone mad, implying that anyone having a third drink is an unfit parent.

But, in reality, it makes a lot of sense. Wetherspoon’s only admit children if both the child and the accompanying adult are having a meal, and understandably they don’t want family groups lingering for prolonged drinking sessions. It would be a good thing if more pub operators took the view that they were not running licensed crèches.
