‘Dine and dash’ female pair shamed by pub after ‘doing a runner without paying’
A pair of pub-goers are being hunted down after allegedly leaving a pub without paying for their meal.
The Fisherman's Arms in Newlyn, Cornwall, has become a target for dine and dashers, having already been hit by a family racking up a £215 bill without paying earlier this year. And it has now happened again, with staff taking to social media to post CCTV images of the alleged dine and dashers.
A table at the top pub was booked using the name Bethany, with one shown wearing a baggy grey jumper, while the other has a white t-shirt and long hair. Another image from the CCTV shows the pair in deep discussion at the table on Monday night (September 25).

What they ate and how much they paid is not yet known. However, a spokesman said: “Unfortunately we have had two girls leave without paying the bill tonight.
“If anyone knows them please help us get in contact.”
The post on the pub's Facebook page was filled with suggestions of how the pub could stop the issue, which has happened several times. One wrote: “Can't believe payment isn't taken at time of ordering, problem solved instantly.”
And a second commented: “When you order, you pay. Same with phone bookings, credit card no. required, deposit of £10 pp.”
A third added: “ Isn't it time to either keep customers cards behind the bar for security or take payment at time of ordering? That'll put a stop to it.” One also hit out at the two females, stating that they “look like they struggle to pay for a lot of things shampoo being one of them,” while another simply called them “tramps”.
Calls for three-day weeks to be introduced in UK – but only for certain Brits
The post has been shared 422 times, with the pub owners hoping a nationwide search will lead to them being identified. The Daily Star has contacted Devon and Cornwall Police for a comment, and to pub management for details on how much the pair owe.
