What word do you use to call a customer who has been buying drinks or food or staying at a restaurant, a pub, a shop or a hotel for almost 20 years?

Your answers will be greatly appreciated.

You could call them a regular, a regular customer / patron, (more rarely) an habitué or (jocularly) a frequent flyer.

They could also be described as a familiar face, frequenter or even haunter.

If I were the owner of the pub/shop/restaurant, I would call them "Sir" or "Madam"...
