Liam Gallagher reportedly got "absolutely hammered" in a London pub over the weekend and attempted to ride a fellow drinker's pet dog.

The allegations come from customers of Ye Olde White Bear public house in Hampstead, London who claim that the Beady Eye frontman spent all afternoon drinking on Sunday (April 21), racking up a £300 bar tab in the process. Speaking to The Sun, one onlooker said of Gallagher: "He was absolutely hammered." Speaking about the incident with the dog, they continued: "He tried to get on the dog’s back and they were just taking little steps - but it just didn’t work. It was really funny."

Liam is reported to have been drinking with seven friends and almost left the pub without paying, having ordered glasses of Billecart-Salmon champagne at £47 a bottle. "The poor waitress serving them was crying when she thought she’d lost all the money, but the pub manager ran after him," said a second source. The manager of the pub revealed that all money owed was paid in full however. "After £300 of drink you forget things. He was happy to pay straight away when I caught up with him," he said.

This is not the first tabloid report of Liam Gallagher's London drinking sessions with the frontman having previously made headlines when he was reportedly thrown out of a bar on Mothers' Day for being too drunk. That story was subsequently denied by the pub in question.

Beady Eye release new album 'BE' in June. You can stream the band's new single 'Flick Of The Finger' here.
