False teeth, a Jack Russell and a prosthetic leg are among the weird and wonderful items left in pubs and bars during the Christmas party season!
A survey of over 170 Young’s Pubs and Geronimo Inns found that these were just some of the bizarre items left in their pubs last Christmas.

While the list features many of the every day essentials we can’t live without – phones, house keys, train tickets and bank cards – some of the more unusual finds have amazed staff and raised a few eyebrows at the same time.
Among other leftovers found by pub staff were novelty Christmas underwear, a brand new man’s suit, a police officer’s CID badge, a child’s pram, full bottles of champagne and a designer gold watch.
Staff at The White Horse, in the City of London, discovered a watch and bag worth £1,000 after a party last year, both were reunited with their owners. At the Double Locks in Exeter, Devon, staff returned a set of misplaced false teeth to a grateful owner who faced a miserable Christmas without them.
At the Hollywood Arms in Chelsea, a slightly forgetful regular bought his elderly Jack Russell dog to the pub for a party and forgot to take it home at the end of the night. Giovanni Pilla, pub manager at the Hollywood Arms, said: “We see this dog in the pub fairly often, he’s always by his owner’s side. While the owner was indulging in one or two festive tipples, Benson found a spot under the booths and fell asleep and only reappeared when staff were cleaning – he was given a bed for the night and reunited with his owner the next day.”
