David Beckham enjoyed a boys night out at a swanky restaurant in London as he was joined by comedian Jack Whitehall among others to surprise pal Dave Gardner on his birthday.

The guys were joined by businessmen Damian Mould, Philip Rebeiz and CJ Jones at Mayfair eatery Oswald's for a meal and a catch up.

Pictured all gathered round a table, the dapper lads smiled at the camera as they were reunited after months of lockdown kept them apart.

Dave - who has been best mates with football star David for years on end - took to Instagram to share the sweet snap with his followers.

He penned: "Surprise Birthday Dinner. Ladzzzzzzzzzz," alongside a heart emoji.

Also spotted tucking into a delicious meal at the restaurant was David Walliams, who was joined by some Chelsea footballers at his table.

It's not known whether David and the athletes were there to celebrate Dave's birthday, however if they were they would have had to sit at a different table due to the new Rule of Six that was put in place this week.

The footballer was finally able to spend a night with pals after months in lockdown

Both David and wife Victoria Beckham took to Instagram to wish their long time pal a happy birthday.

And with boys being boys, David decided to mock Dave's impressive ability to fall asleep anywhere, anytime.

Meanwhile Jack put his comedic skills to good use, sharing a snap of the pair holding up candles as he joked: "This is the sort of lighting you will need now you're old."
