Believed to be on a movie recce trip, Hollywood star George Clooney stopped for lunch at the William Bray in Shere on Thursday August 30.
The pub's owner, ex-Formula One star Julian Bailey, is accustomed to entertaining famous names; often hosting his motorsport and Top Gear buddies, but even he was a little star struck when gorgeous George appeared.
Someone had made the booking for a particular table and said that there would be a famous name in the party, says Julian. But for some reason it had been booked for the following week so we werent expecting anyone.
I was with my wife and son when he came in and it was my son who recognized him. George was very polite and pleasant to the waitresses who were a little flustered and he certainly seemed to enjoy his meal.
Shere is already a well knownSurrey film location and was the setting for The Holiday back in 2006, with stars Jude Law and Cameron Diaz becoming regulars around the village before and during the filming.
