Posh steakhouse Hawksmoor accidentally gives customer £4,500 bottle of wine as waiter behind blunder told 'chin up'May 16, 2019
A BLUNDERING waiter accidentally gave lucky diners a £4,500 bottle of wine.
The unnamed server was told to keep their "chin up" after managers at Manchester's swanky Hawksmoor steakhouse noticed it was down one bottle of 2001 Chateau le Pin Pomerol.
The restaurant – frequented by Manchester United legend Gary Neville – this morning tweeted that it hoped the mystery customer enjoyed the freebie.
The tweet said: "To the customer who accidentally got given a bottle of Chateau le Pin Pomerol 2001, which is £4,500 on our menu, last night – hope you enjoyed your evening!
"To the member of staff who accidentally gave it away, chin up! One-off mistakes happen and we love you anyway."
The tweet sparked a flurry of amused responses – with one punter joking "we need to to go to Manchester."
Another wrote: "I think it makes sense at this point for Hawksmoor to confirm the name and shift pattern of this employee so we can all go and ensure that we help correct any further errors of this nature."
A second tweeted: "Wait till they order “House Red” again and complain as it’s not as good as last time!"
But a third pointed out: "The 'one off' is rather ominous."
