Mistakes can and do happen, but this is not just bringing out the wrong starter. Hawksmoor Manchester, a high-end steak house, located in a late Victorian courthouse on Deansgate, next door to Spinningfields tweeted about how a customer received a bottle of Chateau le Pin Pomerol by mistake.
Chateau le Pin Pomerol is one of the most expensive Bordeauxs and most expensive wines in the world, worth about €5000.
However, Hawksmoor were very gracious about the whole thing tweeting to their, probably mortified member of staff that they love them anyway. The tweet went viral and it looks like they might turn this mistake into thousands of euros worth of excellent PR, so all’s well that ends well.
To the customer who accidentally got given a bottle of Chateau le Pin Pomerol 2001, which is £4500 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 😉— Hawksmoor Manchester (@HawksmoorMCR) May 16, 2019
