Hawksmoor Manchester: Diner given £4,500 red wine by mistake

Hawksmoor Manchester: Diner given £4,500 red wine by mistake

By then the waitress had realised that she had accidentally served the most expensive vintage on the wine list, a £4,500 bottle of Château Le Pin Pomerol 2001.

And while such a mistake might be seen as a sackable offence to many, the restaurant seemed far more forgiving, adding: "To the member of staff who accidentally gave it away, chin up! One-off mistakes happen and we love you anyway".

Another user, implying they were the lucky diner, replied to the post, saying: "I don't know about 4500 quid, but it was nice when we added the lemonade and ice cubes". So when one steakhouse in Manchester, England, tweeted a "chin up" message to a server who made a very costly mistake, social media responded in a big way.

His tweet got more than 31,000 likes.

So well played, Hawksmoor Manchester.

But the venue has done any swearing in private and come out all smiles, writing on their Twitter account "To the customer who accidentally got given a bottle of Le Pin, we hope you enjoyed your evening".

The restaurant also uploaded a side-by-side photo of the $290 and the $5,000 bottles of wine alongside the caption, "THEY LOOK PRETTY SIMILAR OK?!"

"The manager who made the mistake is obviously mortified: I'm fairly sure she's not gonna do it again", Beckett told The Guardian.

A customer was unaware they were drinking a wine worth tens of thousands. "The customer didn't know and it was only afterwards that one of the managers picked up what had happened".

Only 400-600 cases of the Chateau le Pin Pomerol were produced when the drink was bottled in 2001. That being said, he says that he is "going to tease her for this when she stops being so mortified".

The Hawksmoor restaurant says the mistake occurred on a busy night.
