Customer Furious At 'Ridiculous' Amount They Were Charged For Brown Sauce

A customer at a restaurant in Ireland was left fuming this week after they were charged for brown sauce and relish with their breakfast.

The anonymous customer had ordered two full Irish breakfasts, an 'eggs your way' dish and some coffees, and had asked for some brown sauce and tomato relish alongside.

But they were left pretty shocked when they saw they was charged for each condiment.

Taking to Twitter to post about the customer's experience, RedFM radio presenter Neil Prendeville shared a photo of the receipt, writing: "A listener has sent in this receipt after breakfast in a popular Cork eaterie.

"The itemised bill shows a charge of €1.50 each for a side of brown sauce and relish. Surely salt, pepper, vinegar, ketchup, and brown sauce should be complimentary."

The post has kicked off quite the debate among Twitter users, with many discussing whether the sauce should be a free or charged-for addition.

One person wrote: "Why should something the restaurant bought be given to a customer complimentary?" while another commented: "Sauce is an option so of course it should be charged for."

Some disagreed, however, with one writing: "Charging 1.50 for brown sauce has nothing to do with the Energy Crisis, the War in Ukraine, staff shortages etc, it’s taking the Mick, plain and simple. People need to boycott these places until they get some sense [sic]."

And another said: "For that kind of charge, I would never again go into cafe/restaurant on principle alone."

Others pointed out that it depends on how much sauce was provided, specifically if it was in a bowl or as a sachet.

"To be honest the person hasn’t said was it a sachet or a bowl! If it’s a bowl price I’d fine! A sachet would be a joke!" Wrote one person.

Another said: "Charging for sauces isn't ridiculous ino, but the amount they are charging is ludicrous."

What do you think?

Last month, we told you about a gob-smacked mother and daughter who were charged more than £500 at a Greek restaurant.

The pair say they had only ordered two cocktails and a portion of crab legs, but, after finishing their meal, they received a bill of €520 (£442.46) with a €78 (£66.37) tip, reports The Sun.

As you can imagine, the woman was outraged and went as far as to refusing to pay. You can read all about that here.
