Just take me to the Pub
Madonna and Guy Ritchie happily wait for their lift after a night at a good, old-fashioned English boozer.
And perhaps it is no surprise to see the American superstar emerging from a pub… after all she says she is a Real Ale girl these days.
The 45-year-old has made no secret of the fact she now likes a pint of the good stuff, thanks to the influence of her English husband.
And the couple had clearly enjoyed their night after popping into the Punchbowl in London’s trendy Mayfair. They had perched on bar stools at the cosy pub, built in the 1730s, while watching boxing on the TV in the corner.
And regulars say Madonna and her film director husband are often in for a drink or two.
One customer said: “They are a lovely couple but no one really bothers them. We are used to seeing them when they come in.”
Madonna revealed last year that Ritchie had introduced her to the traditional English drink… and she didn’t mean tea.
She said: “I didn’t start drinking until I met Guy.
He’s a wonderful influence on me, I get drunk with him. I become one of those English drunken girls.
I wear flat caps and speak low and order a pint of Timothy Taylor, the best Real Ale.”
Sadly for Madge there was no Timothy Taylor on offer in the Punchbowl this week.
But while bar staff were keeping tight-lipped about the couple’s choice of tipple, they were spoilt for choice with ales.
Spitfire (£2.65), Old Speckled Hen (£2.55), and Courage Best Bitter (£2.30) were all on offer.
The couple spent about an hour in the pub, before leaving at last orders.
But while mum-of-two Madonna and Guy, 35, might pretend they are just like the rest of us, there are one or two differences.
As they finished off their late night drinks, three burly bodyguards kept watch outside.
