Pub champions The Hairy Bikers filmed at a historic pub last week for their new television series.

The Royal Standard of England, in Forty Green, near Beaconsfield hosted the duo on Friday, March 20, for their new TV series on "Pubs that built Britain" for the BBC to be shown in the summer.

Simon King and David Myers were in the pub to film a story about the War of the Roses and early Morris Dancing.

The Hairy bikers famed for their facial hair and pub banter looked the part when meeting the dancers from the Grand Union Morris group.

The pub owners said Dave and Si took some impromptu Morris lessons and danced to a tune with gusto.

They added Dave even managed to act the traditional fool by dancing in the Jesters hat.

Anna O’Keeffe one of the pub’s owners said: “The Hairy Bikers were the best visitors to the pub, they were full of enthusiasm, good humour and plenty of ad-libbing!

"They were such good sports and even had a go at the Morris dancing. They spent a good hour outside dancing and were full of fun .It was a pleasure to look after them, and they are welcome back anytime."

Matthew O'Keeffe the landlord said that the Hairy Bikers are the perfect pub goers.

"They made the day a wonderful experience and this is what a British pubs are about."

Si King described the pub as : "The most beautiful pub I’ve ever been to."
