Man, 29, converts £12k Volkswagen camper van into a pub

A man who was too busy running a bike shop to visit his local pub decided to do the obvious - buy a £12,000 camper van and convert it into a mobile boozer. 

Ben Levy, 29, spent months to painstakingly transform his Volkswagen 1957 Splitscreen into a personal watering hole complete with an optical bar, leather seating and even a dart board.

The car nut splashed out thousands of pounds fitting it with beer taps, wine racks, disco lights and even a bell to ring for service.

The pub - named the 'The Dub Inn' as a play on the Volkswagen nickname 'Vdubs' - also has a cooler and 240-volt power supply so customers can enjoy their pint extra-cold.

Ben decided he wanted to create his own bar after finding himself too busy at work to get down his local as often as he'd liked to.

He and his mates now enjoy a pint and a game of darts by the roadside or outside his house - but he insists he never drives it after having a few too many.

Since the pub was spotted by a fellow enthusiast at a VW show, Ben's invention has gone viral and been shared millions of times on social media.

The unique vehicle - which Ben bought in July 2014 for £12,000 - can also be hired out for weddings and other special events.
