Matt Damon surprised local punters after he stepped out for a drink in a Hertfordshire pub.

The Hollywood star, 45, called into the Chequers Inn in Redbourn before flying out of Luton in his private jet.

Damon sipped on a pint of Guinness as he enjoyed a 'quiet' night with three friends, according to the Herts Advertiser.

Knowing he was an unusual customer for the locals, the actor took time to pose for photos and sign autographs before leaving a $100 (£70) tip for each of the bar staff.

Speaking to the Herts Advertiser, pub manager Bob Morton said: “All the guests just loved him. He was really, really good with everyone. He just wanted a quiet beer and not a busy boozer. That was fine until somebody recognised him!”

Morton continued: “He was a really nice guy. Lots of people came up for photos and he didn’t mind one bit. He was an absolute gent.”

It is not the first time in recent weeks that the actor has caused a stir.

In March he left London commuters confused after Woolwich station was transformed into Athens underground for the new Bourne film.

The actor was pictured hanging around the DLR station which had its tube maps and posters swapped for signs in Greek.
