A pub has shared an eye-watering bill after three of its customers drained the venue of its Jägermeister supplies.

The Fat Badger in Harrogate, West Yorkshire, shared its ‘Bill of the Week’ on social media after three men started a bar crawl in the venue last month.

The popular boozer posted a picture of the receipt, totalling a staggering £519.75 – which has since gone viral on their Facebook page – amassing more than 3,000 likes, comments and shares.

The extortionate tab stunningly revealed the trio’s intake for that afternoon, which included a whopping 85 shots of Jägermeister and Red Bull – costing £340 alone – as well as six pints of Guinness, four gins, three shots of Sambuca, three glasses of wine, one pint of beer and a double Tequila shot.

To look at it in a different light, in total, 147.4 units of alcohol (49.13 units each) and 14,513 calories (4,838 calories each) were consumed during the binge – the shocking equivalent of almost 50 beef burgers.

The Chief Medical Officer’s guideline for both men and women states that it is safest not to drink more than 14 units of alcohol per week on a regular basis.

Out for the count

But frequent pubgoer Andy Caine from West Yorkshire, says he had “no idea” of how much the group had drunk until he saw the receipt on Facebook.

Even more amazingly, Caine claimed the drinking session was a “fairly tame” night out.

The pub’s status attracted comments from other amazed customers, although some didn’t believe that such a small group could knock back so many shots in one go.

“85 Jägerbombs in one night is a little extreme,” said an unimpressed customer. 

One questioned: “85 Jagerbombs for three people? I had six and I thought I was having a heart attack.”

Another wrote: “That’s one killer hangover.”

The Fat Badger's pub manager Chris Clarke claimed that the men would have had 100 Jägerbombs – but had to decline their last order of 15 because they had drunk all of their Jägermeister supplies.

Last September, JD Wetherspoon boss and arch Brexiteer Tim Martin, stopped serving Jägerbombs in his venues – in a bid to crack down on drinks that come from the EU.
