Lucky diners were accidentally served a £4,500 bottle of red wine at a restaurant.

Hawksmoor Manchester said on Twitter it hoped the customers had enjoyed their evening after being given the pricey 2001 bottle of Chateau le Pin Pomerol.

The diners ordered a £260 Bordeaux but received the bottle "of the same vintage" which was 17 times the price.

A "mortified" staff member who made the error has been urged to keep their "chin up" as "one-off mistakes happen".

It was only afterwards that the restaurant's manager realised the mistake, a spokesman said.

£4,500 = 5758.36 USD

A wine less that twenty years old is priced that much? Chump change to the rich, I suppose.
