New research by TV channel Blighty shows that men spend 441 days of their lives in the pub, while women are there for an only slightly more sensible 340 days. How the researchers worked this out is anyone’s guess.
In total, punters will consume a total of 5,403 alcoholic drinks and hoover up an average of 1,775 bar snacks, according to the study, while on average men spend £65,000 at the bar, or just under £11 per visit.
The figures show that the tenant pubs are still very much in-demand despite a ‘perfect storm’ of setbacks which have hit the industry in recent times.
Bargain supermarket booze, ever rising taxation and pressure from the flagging economy have all taken their toll on so-called community pubs (the ones that don’t ‘All Bar One’ written at the top) this year.
