A fan shared a photo of the two on a jaunt through northern England on Wednesday, and People magazine has overheard that the pop star pair were dining out at a pub about 170 miles north of London on Tuesday night.
But while it's been widely speculated Stateside that Swift moved on from her summer romance with Conor Kennedy to Brit boy bander Styles, onlookers in England thought they looked more like friends.
"[Swift] was polite and pleasant -- fantastic," said Sarah Walker, the manager of the pub where Swift and Styles were seen with friends on Tuesday. "She is just having a nice tour of England. They were like any typical group of people having dinner. Everyone thinks they are a couple, but to be honest, we had no sense of that at all."
