After arriving at the Kopper Keg micro-pub in Stockton, it looked like the actor had the best time after some images of him and the owners of the pub were shared online.

Despite acting as ‘Lurch’ in the hit film Hot Fuzz, and appearing in the likes of Clash of The Titans and Jumanji, the 53-year-old actor is more well known for playing Sandor “The Hound” Clegane in Game of Thrones; starring in 38 episodes of the notable show.

And it seems like as well as Rory having a great time, everyone else did too judging by the post on the Kopper Keg’s Facebook post.

Tasking to social media, the venue said: “We had a blast last night in The Keg as we had the chance to hang out with @rory_mccannn, some of you may know him as The Hound from Game of Thrones!

“What an absolute legend he is, a mountain of a man and a genuinely lovely guy.

“He shared some awesome stories with us and man does he like his whiskey!” Rory was full of compliments about Stockton and how welcoming people are here.

“Rory, it was a pleasure, sir.”
