Woman Fuming After £13 Camembert At Restaurant Turns Out To Be £1.15 From Asda

Woman Fuming After £13 Camembert At Restaurant Turns Out To Be £1.15 From Asda

When restaurants charge through the roof for a piece of food, you're naturally going to think that it's some pretty decent stuff they're putting on your plate. Unfortunately for us, we'll never know 100 percent whether the expensive steak we've ordered is exactly what they say it is.

But fortunately for one woman, she was able to tell exactly where her £13 camembert came from because the restaurant forgot to take off the packaging.

Emma Daniels sat down at the Severn Shed in Bristol and was happy to cough up that much for a bit of cheese, thinking this must be some good shit. Lo and behold, when it arrived on her table, it was still nestled in its Asda packaging.

I haven't tasted Asda's camembert myself, so I can't attest to whether it's nice or not. But considering it costs £1.15 at the supermarket and this restaurant is on selling it for more than 10 times the price, this does all seem shady AF.

Emma wrote on Tripadvisor: "When we go out to eat, we realise you pay for more than just the ingredients. You pay for atmosphere, staff [and] cooking.

"What I didn't expect was to order a sharing starter of Camembert and to be served Asda's own brand Camembert in the original packaging!

"Even when I cook it at home I cook it in a terracotta dish!"

In her own words, she actually really enjoyed the cheese, chutney and bread combo, thinking - quite reasonably - it must be fancy, restaurant-quality stuff. But it was only when she finished the starter and flipped over the lip that she saw it was definitely not what she'd been led to believe.

She adds that the rest of the dining experienced wasn't up to her standards and was annoyed when the service charge was 'sneakily' added onto the bill.

Severn Shed general manager Ashley Kirwan said: "I really have to investigate it, it sounds ridiculous. It is something I would have to look into.

"Obviously it is something that I have not heard of before. I have been here a week and for me the business is very new.

"I'm going to look into it and speak to the person. We've got to work out what actually happened. Until then I can't really say much."

Everyone knows that a bottle of wine is more expensive at a restaurant than at the supermarket - that's just simple business economics. But when somewhere charges that much for some cheese they got at Asda, you can understand why customers might be a bit miffed.
