Staff at a Norfolk farm shop and restaurant were stunned when a Hollywood star stopped by this week. 

The team at Hirst's Farm Shop & Cafe, in Ormesby St Margaret, took to social media to share a snap of Marvel actor Tom Hiddleston as he posed for a photo.

Pictured with all smiles, the caption read: "Can you tell we have some Tom Hiddleston fans who work here?"

Speaking of the chance encounter, a staff member at Hirst's said: "It was great to meet him!

"He was very willing to have a selfie with our team and it gave them a huge morale boost to start their day seeing a celebrity enjoying their offering on a busy Saturday morning."

The Loki star was also spotted elsewhere in the Great Yarmouth area, dining at The Kings Arms in Fleggburgh last night which was shared on the business's Facebook page. 

Afterwards, he reportedly said it was the "best meal" in Norfolk.

The appearance follows shortly after Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds was spotted filming the franchise's latest instalment at Holkham, a location not unused to hosting Hollywood productions.

Norwich regular Hugh Jackman was also in Norfolk recently, where he enjoyed a meal at the Waffle House in St Giles Street, similarly stopping to take a selfie with the team.

The actor's mother lives in the county and he is a diehard supporter of Norwich City, along with Stephen Fry and Delia Smith.

London-born Hiddleston, 42, won two Primetime Emmy Awards as star of TV series The Night Manager and has appeared in films outside of the Marvel universe including Kong: Skull Island and War Horse.

He has regularly been tipped as having the potential to be the next James Bond and his mother reportedly lives in Suffolk.
