    90-year-old man who goes to the same pub alone everyday gets a heartwarming gift from strangers

    The man, known only by his first name Pete, lives alone and goes to a pub in Chelmsford almost every day to eat Hunter’s chicken with a glass of wine.

    A 90-year-old man from the UK, who had been having the same lunch alone every day at a pub, was stunned recently after discovering that some strangers had left a £700 tab for him to buy things.

    The man, known only by his first name Pete, lives alone and goes to a pub in Chelmsford almost every day to eat Hunter’s chicken with a glass of wine.

    Almost every regular customer in the pub knows Pete, who happens to be a good friend of the pub owner Tim Mepham.

    After Tim posted a small video of Pete on TikTok, it soon reached thousands of views with users asking how they could fund Pete’s everyday meal at the pub.

    When the pub owner posted Pete’s table’s number, donations came rushing in through the app with hundreds of people ordering food for the 90-year old. Eventually, a bar tab of £700 (Rs 72,000) was made available for Pete.

    A heartwarming video shows Tim telling Pete that strangers have bought 90 glasses of wine for him. To which Pete says, “But you’re gonna lose money.”

    “Pete is genuinely one of the most polite gentlemen I’ve ever met. He’s so thankful for what we do for him, the time he spends with us and with what’s happened recently, and his sense of humour is razor-sharp,” Time was quoted as saying by The Sun.

    “People bought Pete drinks because they just thought he was a nice guy. He isn’t in need, or poor and people didn’t pity him, they just loved him,” he added.

    Tim has known Pete for over three years now. He described the 90-year-old as a ‘perfect granddad’.

    Tim added that Pete loves talking bout his wife who passed away eleven years ago. He also talks about the time he served during the war.
