SHE is known for her roles in romantic comedy films but this weekend Drew Barrymore took a break from the silver screen and ventured into a Vale pub for a drink.

The world famous actress was spotted enjoying half a pint of cask ale in the Fleece Inn, Bretforton, with a friend on Saturday.

Best know for her roles in Charlie's Angels, the Wedding Singer, 50 First Dates, Never Been Kissed and ET, she is currently based in London filming Miss You Already.

But it appears Barrymore was enjoying some down time exploring the countryside.

She didn't stay long at the National Trust owned pub, but managed to squeeze a couple of photos in for staff at the popular spot.

Nigel Smith, landlord, was upstairs at the time Barrymore arrived and was unaware of the star's presence until after she departed.

He said: "She was only here for a short time, she just popped in for a drink. She was with a friend and ordered a half a cask ale, she must have heard about about our reputation for keeping ales.

"The staff were very excited, and it was very kind of her to pose for photos with them."
