Pubgoers stunned after Keanu Reeves makes surprise visit to UK pub
| Last updated
The people of Tring, Hertfordshire didn't know what to do with themselves when Keanu Reeves casually strolled into a local pub over the weekend.
Staff at The Robin Hood pub in Tring were visited by the Hollywood star on Saturday (4 February) for some traditional English delicacies.
After Keanu, 58, tucked into some fish and chips, a shepherd's pie, and a beer he was all too happy to meet the staff and take a few photos.
Posting one of the photos to the pub's official Facebook page, a staff member wrote: "So today we had a surprise visitor for lunch…
"What a lovely man he was too.
"Laura asked if he would be ok with taking photos with the kitchen lads.
"He marched into the kitchen shook their hands and praised them for the food they had prepared.
"Suffice to say he made their days!!!"
The trick here is to always feed celebrities a good helping of traditional pub grub before you ask them for photos and autographs - there's no way they'll refuse.
After all, isn't that where we're all happiest?
That's what worked for barmaid Laura Rolfe and the rest of the team at the Hertfordshire pub.
Speaking to Metro about the John Wick star's visit on Saturday afternoon, she shared: "One of our cooks was so excited he looked as though he was going to pass out."
She added: "When I took the cutlery down, I asked, 'Oh, is someone else joining you?' but he said, 'No, we want to try both.'
"He was with someone else. Presumably a driver or a friend, maybe?"
It's not exactly clear what Keanu was doing in the UK - could John Wick 4 have some scenes closer to home? - though this isn't the first time he's been spotted enjoying a pint at a small English pub.
Just last August, the Matrix actor caused a stir in the village Charwelton, Northamptonshire when he stopped in for a bite to eat.
Keanu had been in town for work, filming a documentary about Brawn GP's F1 championship-winning year of 2009.
Pub-goer Dianne King spotted Keanu right away and asked if he could get a photo with the Canadian actor.
"He was really nice," she told ITV at the time.
"Quite quiet, but very kind and asked if I wanted a photo, after I asked him about 10 times if it was really him.
"I apologised for interrupting them, but everyone he was with were very nice and really friendly.
"I can honestly say they were all a lovely bunch of people."
You heard it here first folks, the best time to catch Keanu Reeves is in a small English pub. Keep your eyes peeled!
