The venue is just a street away from the Wyndham theatre where Phoebe is currently performing a 30-day run of her hit play and TV series Fleabag.

Phoebe was casually clad for her reported four-hour drinking session, working a chic striped top and cropped black leather jacket with zip detailing.

She styled her look with a pair of blue skinny jeans and white trainers, while toting a shopper bag on her shoulder, no doubt full of her essentials.

Phoebe couldn’t wipe the smile off her face as she interacted with Fleabag enthusiasts who had stayed to meet the star.

The Fleabag theatre production has received a host of five-star reviews, which have hailed Phoebe for winning TV and theatre audiences alike.

A Sky News report claimed: ‘For all the outrageousness of the piece, the expert crafting of Waller-Bridge and director Vicky Jones means that at no point does it cross into shock for shock’s sake.

‘Although multitudes of fans will be left disappointed they were unable to get a ticket, Waller-Bridge, unlike Fleabag, knows when to leave her audience wanting more.’

While the Daily Mail’s Jan Moir said: ‘At least the show was brilliant, as you might expect. This is the embryonic unplugged Fleabag, the one-woman show which begat the hit series that came later.

‘But if the story was familiar, at least the retelling of it was entertaining. Sitting on a red chair on a bare stage, Waller-Bridge proved to be an accomplished live performer, here called upon to act out the roles of her sister and her father and even her hideous brother in law, Martin.’

The Fleabag television series was based on Phoebe’s one-woman routine, first performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Following the sitcom’s finale, Phoebe announced that she would be resurrecting the stage version – which then sold out all 30 dates in less than an hour. 

The 65-minute performance, follows Phoebe’s character, who is simply known as Fleabag, as she tries to get her life in order while running a guinea pig café.

The star’s appearance comes after she announced that she would take a step back from season two of Killing Eve in order to focus on the highly-anticipated Bond film. 

Fleabag will run at the Wyndhams Theatre in London until September 14
