A pub near Abingdon is offering a free drink for locals.

But they have to promise to leave the office on time at least one day next week.

The Dog House in Faringdon Road, Frilford Heath, which is run by Chef & Brewer, has announced the initiative after finding the average Brit has just 24 minutes to themselves after a working day.

The Kings Arms in Sandford-on-Thames, also run by the pub company, is making the same pledge.

The pub company's research revealed that the average full-time worker leaves the office 23 minutes late each day, spends 33 minutes travelling home from work, 39 minutes preparing, cooking and clearing up after dinner, and 33 minutes doing household chores – leaving less than half an hour to themselves after all the jobs are done.

Following the findings, the Dog House is encouraging Frilford Heath locals to ‘enhance their evening’, by offering a complementary glass of their favourite tipple – on the house, so they can enjoy some much-needed ‘me time’.

All they have to do to redeem the freebie is sign a pledge to leave work on time at least once next week.

Amy Robertson, general manager at the Dog House, said: “We’re a nation that never switches off – whether its staying late at work, a long commute home or household chores, we know all-too-well it can feel like there’s just not enough hours in the day.

“That’s why we’re encouraging people in Frilford Heath to sign our pledge to leave work on time at least once next week, so they can really make the most out of their evening, as well as enjoying a drink on the house in a relaxing pub environment and taking some much-needed time out to escape everyday life.

“We look forward to welcoming hard-working locals for a well-earned drink – they more than deserve it!”

Dale Little, general manager at the Kings Arms Chef & Brewer pub, is backing the offer.

To redeem a free drink between 5pm-7pm on Monday, to Thursday, drinkers need to sign the pledge at chefandbrewer.com/enhance-your-evening and show their confirmation voucher at the bar.
