Brits will spend over one year of their lives at the pub, a new survey has revealed.

A study of 2,000 adults has shown that during the average week a person pops into the pub at least twice, for a total of 3 hours and 34 minutes.
 
Across the average year that is the equivalent of 185.5 hours or just under eight days spent drinking with friends and family down the local.
 
A spokesman Spirit owned pub chain Taylor Walker, which conducted the research, said:  "A good pub is a fundamental part of British culture.
 
‘"So it’s inevitable that many adults will spend a large part of their leisure time in either their local pub or trying new ones."
The study shows the average drinker will fork out up to £124,927.66 on their favourite tipple over their lifetime.
 
Pub-goers will spend around £18.41 between Monday and Friday, and an additional £21.30 at weekends.
