Actor and TV presenter Tony Robinson was spotted in a Sheffield restaurant yesterday afternoon.

Famous for playing Baldrick in the TV show Blackadder and for presenting Channel 4’s Time Team, he was seen by diners having a pot of tea in the Little Mesters Cafe & Bistro in Kelham Island.

One diner said: “I called in at Little Mesters for Sunday lunch and spotted Tony Robinson having a pot of tea. Are they filming a Time Team episode around here?”

The archaeology show was axed in 2014 after a 20-year run.

The Time Team crew have visited Sheffield before when they filmed ‘Steel City: A Time Team Special’ in 2003.

Tony and the team were said to have visited The Fat Cat pub, just around the corner from the Little Mesters, during this time.
