Customer Derri Burdon was so disappointed with her festive meal at the Whistling Wren in Leigh, Gtr Manchester, she took to Facebook to share her experience.
Ms Burdon who was disappointed with her festive meal at a restaurant in Greater Manchester said: “Dear family and friends - before I make this public I wanted to gauge your opinion.
"If you paid £45 for a Christmas Day meal would you be happy to have been served this?
“We were at the Whistling Wren in Leigh.
“I have complained to Marston’s but was told the meal was as they would expect apart from it being served on the wrong size plate (I expect the plate should have been smaller).
“The service on the day was awful too. The table didn’t have a cloth and was set as it would be on a normal day."Not the stuff memories are made of.”
Staff at the pub chain say that they have now given the unhappy customer a full refund but added that the Christmas package also included other items, not included in the picture.
And it wasn’t long before the post went viral on social media with scores of other people having their say on the meal.
Ian McNabb said: “Here is a picture of the saddest Chrimbo dinner I’ve ever seen. I feel like crying.”
Another person added: “I eat out most Christmas days and have never seen anything as bad as this.
"I would be demanding a refund it looked vile.”
“Maybe not a good idea to eat out next year. If I got this I would cry. Disgusting for any price,” another Facebook user said.
