Via its Facebook page, a spokesman for the pub said: "What an honour it was to meet this legend that is Frank Bruno today."

Mr Bruno is the third celebrity that we know of who has visited the Hopping Hare in recent months.

In November last year Matt LeBlanc, most commonly recognised as Joey from Friends, stayed and dined at the venue in Hopping Hill Gardens.

Just a few weeks later Ruby Wax also dropped by in search of food and accommodation.
