You Can Actually Book A Sunday Roast In The Pub From 'The Holiday'

You Can Actually Book A Sunday Roast In The Pub From 'The Holiday'

There's something so enchanting about Iris's hometown in The Holiday that makes us want to call around to Rosehill Cottage and visit that local boozer her brother Graham frequents often.

And as it turns out, now you can, as the pub which features in the beloved Christmas flick, is in fact an actual Grade II Listed watering hole - and not a Hollywood set.

Nestled amongst the lovely half-timbered buildings of Shere, The White Horse in Surrey is possibly one of the most idyllic country pubs in the UK, even more so since the festive rom-com was shot there.

In the Christmas classic, the pub is an integral part to Cameron Diaz and Jude Law's characters' blossoming romance and was the reason behind their initial meeting, after a drunk Graham (Law) stumbles to Rosehill Cottage following a night at the bar.

Viewers will remember Iris's dashing older brother then inviting Amanda (Diaz) to the local pub the morning after the night before, despite the film editor insisting she's flying back to Los Angeles.

He says: "Well if your flight's cancelled or for some reason you change your mind, I'm having dinner with some friends at the pub tonight and if not, then, well you're lovely."

Yes, our hearts have melted.

The book publisher, forlorn and believing Amanda has jetted back to the US, arrives to the adorable country pub and sits down with two friends before he looks to the fireplace to see her nursing a glass of white wine.

Frou Frou's Let Go plays as the pair exchange a knowing smirk - and the rest is cinematic history.

And now fans of the flick not only can visit the pub but also book the exact table that the A-listers filmed that heartwarming scene.

The adorable pub is so proud that it featured in the movie that they have even placed a framed The Holiday poster over the spot where Diaz and Law sat so you can have your own 'meet-cute'.

We've had a quick look at the menu and The White Horse has everything you'd want from a country pub: reasonably priced Sunday roasts and sumptuous Slow-Cooked Lamb Gourmet Pie, as well as a plethora of ales to wash it all down with.

The charms of Shere, which is home to The White Horse, has long lured film makers with Four Weddings and a Funeral, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, and The Wedding Date all having shot scenes there.

So, if you're a rom-com buff, you've no reason not to visit the cinematic location now, so why not make a day of it and book into The White House to have your own Holiday moment?
