See SWNS story SWPUB. A pub regular who has visited the same boozer every day for 72 years has been honoured with a plaque on his favourite chair – where he has supped a staggering 30,000 pints. Arthur Reid, 90, has popped into The Griffin Pub almost every day at 3pm since turning 18 to enjoy a pint – or two – of his beloved Courage bitter. He has his own special glass behind the bar and now an engraved gold plaque has been placed on the back of his favourite chair to mark his 90th birthday. The retired council worker, who left school at 14 to work as a labourer and never married or had children, said he had never been tempted to find another watering hole.
