Punters slam 'scandalous' £420 bill as they claim staff tried to charge them for drinks they never ordered in night out
PUNTERS have slammed their "scandalous" £420 pub bill – as they claim staff tried to charge them for drinks they never ordered on a night out.
The four-person group said "every detail about the place was woeful" in a TripAdvisor review of their visit to a pub in Ireland.
The venue – which has not been named – charged the group €501 after their four-hour drinking session, the Irish Mirror reports.
The punters blasted the amount as "scandalous" and said "there were extra drinks that we had not received" listed on it.
The review hit out at staff for being "very abrupt and rude" when they queried the amount.
The reviewer – who claimed the pub cancelled their booking when they tried to amend it – wrote: "The venue didn’t answer and instead, cancelled our booking and would not give us a table out in the beer garden as we booked.
"We told management and staff five times if a table came free could we have it.
"We witnessed them giving away three separate tables to people around us, who were there way after us.
"We addressed this so many times with them and after four hours we received our table."
They claimed staff took 20 minutes to serve their drinks.
But the £420 bill caused them the most concern.
The review said: "This bill is scandalous for four people only there for 4 hours.
"If we each individually drank €125 worth of drink I would not be writing this review today.
"Obviously with a huge bill we had to go through it and their staff kept coming up to us nearly forcing us to pay straight away. I had to tell them to give us a few minutes three times."
The group informed staff that they were being charged for drinks they didn't order.
"We tried to tell them but they were very abrupt and rude, especially the female manager who managed the bookings and door.
"It was a liability of a pub, I wish I had more positive things to say but unfortunately I do not. Every detail about the place was woeful."
