Paul McCartney surprised the chef of a small café in Kent when he dropped in for lunch.

The Beatles legend, and well-known vegetarian, had finished filming British music show Later… with Jools Holland Monday when he stopped into the Fortify Café in Maidstone, Kent.

According to UK newspaper The Sun, the singer treated the entire TV crew to a meat-free lunch, purchasing 12 sandwiches, roasted peppers, hummus, falafel, frittatas and several sweets.

Chef Sian Sheridan told the outlet he was shocked to have a celebrity guest.

“I made sure everything was perfect. I couldn’t believe I was making Paul McCartney’s lunch,” he gushed.

According to the paper, the bill tallied approximately £120, a drop in the bucket for the musician, worth approximately £680 million, according to the Sunday Times.

The 71-year-old singer/songwriter is currently promoting his forthcoming album, New.

He hired four new producers to work with him on the project and is thrilled with the eclectic mix of tracks.

“Looking at making an album of new songs in a fresh light was very exciting,” Paul recently told The Sun.

“I’m very lucky to do a job I love and if I can love it and it can be exciting, then that’s a formula you can’t beat.”

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
