Hawksmoor Manchester: Customer given £4,500 red wine by mistake
A lucky diner was accidentally served a £4,500 bottle of red wine at a restaurant.
Hawksmoor Manchester said on Twitter it hoped the customer had enjoyed their evening after being given the pricey 2001 bottle of Chateau le Pin Pomerol.
The restaurant advised the member of staff who made the error to keep their “chin up.”
In a tweet it quipped that “one-off mistakes happen” and “we love you anyway”.
The restaurant’s message sparked a flurry of amused responses on Twitter, including “we need to go to Manchester” and “bet they wouldn’t be able to tell the difference”.
Others praised Hawksmoor for not “flying off the handle” at the staff member involved.
It is not yet clear how much the customer paid for the bottle.
