PostSubject: Doctors attack 'supersize' drinks   Sat Apr 12, 2008 7:24 am

Increasingly large pub measures are pushing customers towards unsafe levels of drinking, the Royal College of Physicians has warned.
RCP president Ian Gilmore accused the pub industry of acting irresponsibly and urged it to put its house in order.

A Publican magazine survey found 14% of pubs offered only 250ml wine glasses - equivalent to a third of a bottle. The Association of Licensed Multiple Retailers hit back that it was in the business of offering customers choice.

The 125ml wine glass used to be the standard size but now just 16% of pubs and bars say it is their normal size. Some 73% say 175ml is the new "standard" and 250ml the large.

Maximise profits
Meanwhile, many premises have increased spirit measures from 25 to 35ml and offer doubles as standard. BBC correspondent Keith Doyle said there was even anecdotal evidence that some pub staff were under pressure to maximise profits by encouraging customers to opt for larger drinks.

Industry magazine The Publican recently advised landlords to "train and incentivise staff to upsell products such as larger measures of wine and spirits".
