hedda Crikey a bit of wowserism there Barney.

But I admit I was an enthusiastic Vertical Drinker in my youth (pre WW1) which often led to horizontal drinking (and even horizontal dancing ) and eventually..just horizontal sleeping (ie: passed out pissed as a rat )
Jo I'd never heard of vertical drinking before. Maybe pubs will solve the problem of losing faster drinkers who have their hands full by removing the tables.
Barney Unlike other European countries, this ritual is commonplace here - and is encouraged by the pub industry, largely because it generates more alcohol consumption.

Many pubs now have virtually no furniture - except four foot high tables - to accommodate the vertical drinker. Who drinks faster because his/her hands are full.

Drunkenness is the sole aim of the majority of nightime pubgoers - often made certain by preloading elsewhere, before embarking on the night out.

Vertical drinking - to be banned, when lockdown ends - is known to be a catalyst for fights. Seating puts customers in a more awkward position for confrontations.

Perhaps our public houses will be quieter places - with all customers seated, at a distance...
