Seems like Jennifer Lawrence‘s Christmas was anything but lonely.

After visiting a children’s hospital in her Kentucky hometown of Louisville a few days before Christmas, the American Hustle Golden Globe and SAG Awards nominee flew to the U.K. to spend the festive season with on-again boyfriend Nicholas Hoult.

Enjoying their romantic time together, the couple were spotted having a low-key pub date on Dec. 29 at the Jekyll and Hyde pub in Hook, Hampshire – a small town not far from the Hoult family home in rural Berkshire.

Hoult, 24, and Lawrence, 23, even posed for a picture outside the country pub. Posted on Twitter by fan Emma Morris – who also happens to be the landlord’s daughter – the couple are wrapped up warm in casual attire, smiling for the camera, reports the Mirror.

Morris later Tweeted that “this is the happiest day of my life.”

Having briefly split up in the spring, the couple appeared to be back together when they were pictured on several dates over the summer. Hoult also was spotted at November’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere party in London.

During their U.K. vacation, the couple, who used public transportation on their date-hopping adventures, have also been spotted in pubs around London and reportedly the city of Oxford, where the couple first met when they were filming X Men: First Class in 2010.
