A pub landlord has slammed a group of customers as “absolutely pathetic” after they refused to pay for their meal, even though they had eaten most of it.
During their visit to The Pack Horse Pub in Hayfield, Peak District, the customers didn’t initially report any problems with the food when asked by staff.
It was only when the group had eaten most of their meal that a complaint about the food was made, the staff claim.
Eventually, the group ended up leaving without paying the bill after their request for a new dish was declined, Manchester Evening News reported.
Understandably, the owner and chef of the establishment, Luke Payne, was peeved off with the “immensely frustrating” situation and took to Twitter to share what had happened.
Although the pub had taken their card details when the booking was made (to prevent no-shows and walk-outs), the group were so determined not to pay that they said they would cancel their cards to dodge the bill.
Payne even noted how one member of the group had the audacity to wink at him as they left without paying.
“They were perfectly pleasant to begin with and then everything just changed,” Payne told the same publication.
