Keanu Reeves surprised staff at a local Hertfordshire pub when he made an unexpected visit on Saturday afternoon.
The actor, 58, was ‘more than happy’ to chat with employees at The Robin Hood in Tring, before shaking the hands of two chefs in the kitchen, thanking them for his lunch, and posing with one bartender.
Barmaid Laura Rolfe told Metro: ‘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.
‘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 friend, maybe?’
Admitting she uttered an expletive when the ‘lovely’ Hollywood star walked into the establishment at 12:30pm, she continued: ‘One of our cooks was so excited he looked as though he was going to pass out.’

It is unclear why Keanu is visiting the home county, however back in August, he caused a commotion while staying in Northamptonshire to reportedly film an upcoming Disney+ docuseries.
Not only did he enjoy a boozer dinner at a local pub where he posed with a plethora of starstruck fans, he left a British couple delighted while crashing their wedding.
The John Wick star stunned customers after turning up for dinner ‘and a few whiskies’ at local pub, The Fox and Hounds in Charwelton, where he happily mingled with punters and posed for photos.
Landlord Danny Ricks said he had to do a ‘double take’ when the film star entered and sat down at a table with six other people.
The screen star ate a vegetarian Caesar salad for starter followed by a main course of falafel – washed down with ‘quite a few double whiskies’.
Danny said: ‘It was bizarre. I had to do a double take when he walked in as I couldn’t quite believe my eyes. I thought ‘that guy looks quite a lot like Keanu Reeves’.
‘He sat down with six other TV people, I couldn’t really hear what they were discussing but it all about filming and scripts.
‘He was just a lovely, down to earth guy and was really nice to everyone. Everything nice you would think about him was all true.

‘He stood and took photos with customers and staff. Nothing was too much for him, he took plenty of time to chat to everybody.
‘He had the caesar salad and a falafel dish and he got through quite a few double whiskies as well. He certainly likes his whisky.
‘We managed to stay professional until the end of his visit but of course we had to get a picture with him.
‘It’s not every day you get a Hollywood star walk into your pub. It made everyone’s evening. He was such a top bloke and absolutely lovely.’

Keanu crossed paths with couple Nikki and James Roadnight on their big day because he was staying at their four-star Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa, where rooms begin at £266-per-night and reach up to £495.
The reception was one to remember as the Matrix star came to celebrate shortly after the the couple said ‘I do’ when the groom bumped into him at the bar on Monday.
Nikki told Newsweek: ‘My husband saw him in the bar area and told him he’d just got married and invited Keanu to come over to say hello and have a drink with us if he wanted to.
‘He was very friendly and said he would later on. We didn’t know if he would or not but it was cool that my husband had spoken to him!’
She explained that her husband has seen him earlier in the hotel bar area and asked him to join them.
Wedding guests were thrilled as the star took the couple up on their offer, giving them an extra special day.
‘He was so kind and friendly and congratulated us on our wedding. He was kind enough to do some pictures and our wedding photographer was able to capture some too! Then he took the time to speak to some of our guests and have more photos done!’
