The mistake occurred at their Deansgate restaurant on Wednesday night, when a diner ordered a £260 bottle of Pichon Comtesse de Lalande and was accidentally given a bottle of Le Pin worth £4,500.

How would you feel if you or a staff member made a mistake that cost your business four grand?

The server then asked one of the restaurant managers to fetch the bottle in question - but since the manager was visiting from another branch of the restaurant, she accidentally grabbed the wrong bottle of wine.

A restaurant in England made quite the costly error by giving one customer a much more expensive bottle of wine than expected.

The restaurant told the employee "one-off mistakes happen" and added "we love you anyway". Unfortunately, that was the only bottle the Manchester location of Hawksmoor had in stock.

Hawksmoor in Manchester, UK tweeted about the incident, saying the customer was given a bottle of Chateau le Pin Pomerol 2001, which is priced at £4,500 - around R80,000 - on the menu. They went on to post the two bottles side-by-side to show that while the vintages (years) were both 2001, it was just a simple mix up.

And while such a mistake might be seen as a sackable offence to many, the restaurant seemed far more forgiving, adding: "To the member of staff who accidentally gave it away, chin up! The customer didn't know and it was only afterwards that one of the managers picked up what had happened".

Will Beckett, the co-founder of Hawksmoor, said to The Telegraph that the manager would not be punished for the mistake.

"Its deep ruby/plum/purple colour is accompanied by an extraordinary perfume of creme de cassis, cherry liqueur, plums, liquorice, caramel and sweet toast".
