Restaurant serves £4,500 wine by mistake
#1
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/ho...17091.html

A diner was accidentally served a £4,500 bottle of red wine at an upmarket steakhouse in Manchester, a restaurant chain has said.

Hawksmoor Manchester said the customer had ordered a £260 bottle of Bordeaux, but was served a bottle “of the same vintage” which was 17 times the price.

Writing on Twitter after the mistake was discovered, the restaurant said it hoped the customer “enjoyed your evening”.

The restaurant advised the member of staff who had made the error to keep their “chin up”, adding that “one-off mistakes happen and we love you anyway”.

The error took place when the unnamed customer ordered the Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 2001.



Well, I do hope this wasn't a cynical publicity stunt, because anyone who does visit is going to be very disappointed not to get a £4,500 bottle of wine!

Though, I would like to know what this drink is supposed to taste like, to justify that price tag :O .

That's a big oops. O.O I do admire the way they're handling it, though.

if that happened here not only would they be fired but they would be charged the price of the bottle of wine, so we can only hope that they didnt do that as well.
