The pub had already gone viral after it was declared to be England’s best-decorated Euro 2020 pub thanks to the 500-odd flags from the different European nations competing with which it is garlanded.

GMB reporter Jonathan Swain spoke to the general manager Adam Chamberlain this morning, who said: “We’ve had people visiting from all over the country just to take a selfie in front of the pub. It’s been really good.

“This is the big one. We’ve got a full house inside, plenty of seats available in the beer garden, so if you want to watch the match in a good atmosphere this is the place.”

The reporter then turned to punters sipping their pints and said: “You’re not starting from now, are you? I think it’s going to be a long, long day for a lot of these people here. Kick off’s at five o’clock. It’s only seven o’clock in the morning and they’re already on it.”
