​Somerset Resident Says Nicolas Cage Spent NYE In Local Pub And Bought Everyone A Drink

While many of us spent our New Year's Eve sat on a mate's sofa holding a warm can of lager, it seems that locals in Wells, Somerset, were treated to a much more star-studded affair down the pub - having been graced by the presence of none other than Nicolas Cage.

Better still, he was apparently good enough to treat everyone in the pub to a drink.

A Reddit user called u/Koink posted a photo that appeared to show Nicholas Cage at the Tramways Social Club in Wells, claiming: "Nicolas Cage spent NYE in my small, local pub, in Somerset, UK. He bought everyone a drink."

Further into the thread, they also confirmed that the picture had been taken at a member's club called Tramways and added: "Incidentally, he was a total legend, cool dude and is now a member."

Cage has property over in the States, owning a pad in Las Vegas, but he's also set up a home for himself in humble Somerset.

The actor has previously admitted he actually feels 'more at home' in England, having said in a 2018 interview with Somerset Life: "I am a self-confessed Anglophile. I love everything about England; the history, the people, the countryside, the culture - you name it, I love it.

"I love seeing places like Buckingham Palace and all those other fantastic buildings which are steeped in history and culture. I love the whole concept of the Royal Family.

"As an American you want to see all those things when you come to Britain but I wanted more than that, I wanted to live among all these great treasures. I wanted to be a part of it so I looked for somewhere to call home here.

"When I looked at Somerset I just fell in love with the county. It has so much to offer; great countryside, great towns, great people and, of course, it has Glastonbury too."

Saying Las Vegas is as a 'party place', but not somewhere to 'put your feet up', he continued: "I actually feel more at home in England than in America because I do not like what was done to the Native Americans. I always see America as really belonging to the Native Americans. Even though I'm American I still feel like a visitor in my own country.

"It is very different when I'm in England. I know I'm technically still a visitor but I do feel a connection with my ancestry here."

Well, if he keeps getting the pints in, I imagine Cage will be very welcome for years to come.
