Mumbai: A customer got really lucky on one of the busy nights in Manchester's Hawksmoor Steakhouse and cocktail bar. He ordered a humble 2001 Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande worth 260 pounds.
Little did he think that he would receive one of the most expensive items on the list at the same price!
The restaurant later tweeted that the customer had 'mistakenly' received a bottle of Chateau Le Pin Poerol, 2001, red wine which comes under the 'rarities' section of the restaurant's menu and cost around 4500 pounds.
“It was a very busy night at the restaurant and a very simple mistake. A member of staff picked up the wrong bottle, mistaking it for another Bordeaux of the same vintage. The wine went out and was served to the customer. The customer didn’t know and it was only afterwards that one of the managers picked up what had happened,” a spokesperson of the restaurant told the HuffPost UK.
What was more enthralling was the way the manager reacted to the waiter who caused the mixup. Instead of getting angry at the waiter, he easily forgave him saying "Chin-up. One-off mistakes happen and we love you anyway" and hoped that the lucky guests enjoyed his evening.
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
This reaction received a lot of praise all over the internet. The mix-up was seen as an effective marketing stunt for the restaurant as people are getting to know about it and they hope the same can happen to them, HuffPost UK reported....
