Hawksmoor Manchester: Diners Given £4,500 Red Wine By Mistake

Lucky diners were accidentally served a £4,500 bottle of red wine at a restaurant.

Hawksmoor Manchester said on Twitter it hoped the customers had enjoyed their evening after being given the pricey 2001 bottle of Chateau le Pin Pomerol.

The diners ordered a £260 Bordeaux but received the bottle “of the same vintage” which was 17 times the price.

A “mortified” staff member who made the error has been urged to keep their “chin up” as “one-off mistakes happen”.

It was only afterwards that the restaurant’s manager realised the mistake, a spokesman said.

Hawksmoor’s original message sparked a flurry of amused responses, including “we need to go to Manchester” and “bet they wouldn’t be able to tell the difference”.

Others praised restaurant bosses for not “flying off the handle” at the staff member involved.
