Never mind the awkward conversation about going double Dutch, the real drama of stumping up time on your date comes when you realise that £50 bottle of wine actually costs £5,000. And you had three!
A couple’s story set the Internet chatting when it turned out that after ordering three bottles of wine on their first date, they were astonished to find that the wine bill was a staggering £15,000, rather than the already pricey £150 they were expecting. Ouch!
It’s not known if the couple remained together (either way, they’ve either got a fabulous story to tell their grandchildren or a serious aversion to wine bars for ever more!), but we do know that at least one half of the party has a direct debit set up to pay off the restaurant over the next ten years!
