Has been coming to the pub since 1982, has seen 9 different landlords, 4 different pub names, and is still paying prices from the early 90s because no-one has been willing to tell him otherwise.

2. The Beer Snob

Slowly tastes every beer, explains at length that the kegs are at slightly the wrong temperature, and bemoans the lack of a certain obscure craft beer. Generally immediately in front of you at the bar.

3. The Underage Drinkers

A group of 15 year-olds hiding around the corner from the bar and sending their one friend who’s started to shave to order. Convinced they’re utterly undetected, but actually being tolerated with wry amusement.

4. The guy who still wants a drink 40 minutes after closing

Never gets it, and yet will try the same thing the next night.

5. The guy who’s had too much and is falling over

6. The guy who’s being knocked over by the guy who’s had too much

7. The Regular

He’s at the bar every day. If he doesn’t show up, someone has to call his family to check up on him.

8. The Walking Encyclopedia

Has knowledge on every single topic, and enjoys sharing it with you. Though it sometimes doesn’t hold up to smartphone scrutiny.

9. The Smoker

Buys five drinks, three get drunk. Also the reason pub floors are permanently sticky.

18. Your boss


19. The person who’s spending way too much money

No-one should be having champagne in a pub
