    DIY drink dispensers in fast food outlets

    (forgive me if I have asked this before, but I cant remember the answer)
    I have noticed in the BK at Hove and at most Subways that the cold drinks (Coke, Fanta etc) are self service, once you have paid for an empty cup.

    Now my question is, are you expected to help yourself to as many refills as you like?....if so why would anyone ever pay extra for a larger size cup; surely you would just go up multiple times.

    If the self service section is after you have paid for it then it is free-refills.
    It's great as you only need to buy 1 drink if you're there with your partner and share it. Every little helps.

    Subway used to be but the 1 near my work isn't anymore.
    Maybe it's store specific?
    I guess it depends how daring you're feeling lol

    we went into soya (think thats what its called) and they give you a cup, but hadnt got the bottle to go fill it again as didnt want to get shouted out, and after me chilli noodles i was desperate for another drink - lol

    BK in Coventry have this also. Went in on Sunday with the kids and wondered the same. We all filled up 3 times and no-one said anything, so I guess it's OK.

    Was it Soy you went to?

    My local one in Shrewsbury seems too small to get away with refilling your cup but I did get told the other day that if you are eating in it is free refills! good times!

    Some subways have a sign explaining their position on the re-fills.

    My local is free refills on medium and large drinks but not small, and also says once you leave the store its void, no coming back for free refills two weeks later!

    I was gagging for another drink but as you say I was not daring. I don't know what they would have said but I would have been so shamed if they commented in fornt of a queue of people.

    So basically one can get the medium drink provided with a meal and go up for more so no need to pay to go large.

    isnt it just, never been there before so thought ide give it a try, it was very nice. Did the staff see you do the refill?

    A lot of stores have stopped this as it was being abused.

    This is common all over western USA and they do allow a second drink but expect you not to take advantage. Just goes to show us brits are pratts and we don't help ourselves. Anything for a feebie.
