Yes, the film star, 58, made a surprise visit to the much-loved establishment to enjoy some quintessentially British grub, and he was more than happy to stop for a chat with the bar staff.
Barmaid Laura Rolfe couldn’t believe her eyes when the A-lister walked in the door at around 12:30pm, as the staff were just going about their typical Saturday service.
‘The door swung open, and it was him!’, she exclaimed to Metro.co.uk, saying she then uttered an expletive to owner Stewart Canham.
‘He came to the bar and ordered a beer (Seafarers Ale) and just walked over to the corner. He ordered fish and chips and Nat’s shepherd’s pie,’ she shared.
‘When I took the cutlery down, I asked, “Oh is someone else joining you?”, but he said, “No, we want to try both.”
Not stopping there, he delighted workers by posing for some photos behind the bar.
‘One of our cooks was so excited he looked as though he was going to pass out,’ Laura joked.
‘He didn’t explain why he was in Tring, but I didn’t ask. When customers come in, they’re entitled to sit and have lunch in private without anyone asking about their business.’
She hailed Keanu as a ‘lovely’ person, but he was out the door soon enough, ‘and that was that!’
