Restaurant 'charged £13 for £1.15 Asda own-brand Camembert with wrapper STILL ON' (2 Pics)


 A furious restaurant diner claims she was charged £13 for Camembert served still in its packaging from Asda - where it is sold on the shelves for £1.15.

Emma Daniels said she was left "reeling" after her visit to Severn Shed in Bristol on Friday - when she claimed that the food would have been better had she stayed at home.
She claimed a sharing starter of Camembert, which was priced at £13, was brought to her table in Asda's own brand packaging - which she said would usually cost £1.15 in the supermarket.
She made the claim in a scathing TripAdvisor review, in which she marked the restaurant just two out of 10.
The restaurant's general manager has promised to investigate, the Bristol Post reports.
Emma wrote online: "When we go out to eat we realise you pay for more than just the ingredients, you pay for atmosphere, staff, cooking etc etc.
“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!!
“From there my expectations sunk and weren't lifted -- the mains were bland and we felt we could have cooked better at home.”
She also tweeted from her account @sugarflumpairy to say "cannot get over the fact that my £13 sharing starter was even served in its £1.15 Asda original container".
Emma did report that cocktails were tasty and nicely presented.
But she continued: “Service charge is added sneakily on your bill so you don't really notice - I certainly didn't and wish I had as the service after our mains were delivered was practically non-existent.
“I didn't notice the service charge as I was reeling at being charged £13 for Asda's £1.15 camembert.
“Got given a loyalty card at the end... I don't think so.”
Restaurant manager Ashley Kirwan pledged to investigate the claims, which he admitted "sounds ridiculous".
He said: "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."
