The council’s health and safety inspectors, who are carrying out checks for the first time since the pandemic began, are urging bars to use new glasses every time to avoid the risk of tap nozzles becoming contaminated.

Pubs are not specifically required by law to do this, but they are required to serve drinks hygienically.

Pubgoer Dean Valler, 44, from Wallingford in Oxfordshire, said: “It’s another blow to the British drinker.”
