Having been going grey (on my head) since I was 16 I've never been asked for ID....

What, even for soft drinks? I don't go in pubs that often though I've probably been in them about a dozen times this year, and never been asked for ID...

In theory yes, to be served over the bar you must be 18 however in practice a pinch common sense tends to be used but after 9pm (in the pubs I work at) you have to be 18 to be in the pub, therefore ID'ing for a soft drink isn't uncommon. If I had a £1 for every time someone said "What, for a coke; you want ID for a cokeHuh?" I'd be very rich by now!
