London, May 12 (ANI): A pair of pub regulars has been drinking together at the same bar since 1928—making it a whopping 167 years between them.
Les Perkins, 98, and Chris Parfitt, 95, first visited the Waggon and Horses at Doulting Beacon, Somerset, aged just 13.
And the inseparable pensioners have been loyal regulars at the boozer ever since and have outlasting at least four changes in management.
Retired farmer Les and former quarry manager Chris say the pub “never changes”.
“Only the people change. Some we”ve liked, some we didn”t. They move on but we always keep coming back,” the Sun quoted Les as saying.
Chris added: “The current owners are very good and the food is excellent, although the landlady”s a bit cheeky.”
Les and Chris were taken for their first drink at the Waggon and Horses by their fathers when each was just 13 years old — in 1925 and 1928.
The two became firm friends despite going to different schools and have now drunk together in the pub for 82 years. (ANI)
