An award-winning Petts Wood micropub has been targeted by a picture thief with an eye for hunky men after steamy photos of Tom Hardy and Brad Pitt were stolen from the ladies toilets.

The female WC at The One Inn the Wood features a wall adorned with framed photographs of several famous bods, from David Beckham in his underwear to smouldering Aidan Turner, aka Poldark.

About six months ago Pitt mysteriously disappeared, prompting theories of a thief with a penchant for saucy pictures.

Legend star Tom Hardy was the most recent victim, after he too was nabbed from the ladies loos.

Landlord Barry Bridge, 49, and wife Sarah, 45, posted a picture on Facebook of the empty space where Hardy used to belong, alongside the caption: “Sad to report the picture thief has taken Tom Hardy. Really tacky”.

Mr Bridge said Beckham had been “snubbed”, adding: “He’s old hat, it’s all about Tom Hardy.”

News Shopper:

Barry and Sarah Bridge receiving their Camra award last year.

He told News Shopper: “About two/three weeks ago the Tom Hardy one we had replaced the Brad Pitt one with was gone.

“Tom Hardy and Brad Pitt have gone, but Beckham and Aidan Turner haven’t.

“It’s a bizarre crime. We have had a lot of suggestions of how to stop it which were quite funny.”

Some of the suggestions include taking topless photos of the local brewers used by the micropub, which last year was named Camra’s Pub of the Year.

One Inn the Wood also beat off competition from 7,000 other boozers to take the title of Best Pub in Greater London.

Replying to the Facebook post, some pubgoers were just relieved to see Poldark had survived the thief’s grasp.

Charley Gordon wrote: “Oh my god! People really do that kind of thing!! You can't be that hard up whoever you are! Get your own photo!!”

Devon Prosser commented: “Poor Aiden Turner, what's wrong with him??”

Pondering whether to replace the latest stolen picture, Mr Bridge said: “It’s a bit tricky now, I think they’re going to get nicked.

“We will replace it but people are coming in here now, they quite like the fact there’s one missing.”
