Pub etiquette:
The crucial thing here is the "round" system, in which each participant takes turns to shout an order. To the outsider, this may
appear casual; you will not necessarily be told it's your round and other participants may appear only too happy to substitute for you. But make no mistake, your failure to "put your hand in your pocket" will be noticed.
People will mention it the moment you leave the room. Don't attempt to leave the pub without putting your hand in your pocket and paying for your round. Please note that all barmen and lounge staff expect to be paid immediately after serving drinks.
