A pub visit turned into a surprising experience for a man who was shocked by the hefty bill he received despite ordering only a couple of items. Leigh Keystone, a 58-year-old from Wales, shared his astonishment on social media platform X, questioning the rationality of the charges for such a modest order. Although he clarified that he doesn't frequent pubs often, he decided to try out a local family-owned establishment for lunch last Thursday. This is reported by SSP.

According to the snapshot of the bill shared by Leigh, it appeared that he and his wife ordered two cheese sandwiches with fries, along with two soft drinks—one being a regular-sized Pepsi Max with ice, and the other just half a glass of the same beverage. Strikingly, the total amount came to £32.50, excluding service charges. "Is this the norm at an ordinary pub?" Leigh asked the internet, humorously mentioning that his wife threatened to leave him if he brought up the cost of the half-filled Pepsi Max (£3.60) again.

Interestingly, despite the assumption that a full-sized Pepsi Max would be double the price of a half glass, there was merely a 40p difference, with a regular Pepsi Max priced at £4.00. Incredibly, the cheese sandwiches were listed at an astonishing £9.95 each, and the sides of chips added an additional £5 to the bill. Although Leigh didn't reveal the name of the pub in West Wales, he made it clear that he wouldn't be returning for another meal. "I'll avoid this place like the plague from now on," he declared, later adding that the establishment seemed reliant on passing tourist trade, particularly not thriving during winter months.

As expected, Leigh's eye-watering pub bill attracted hundreds of online comments, with users expressing divided opinions about the menu prices. Some sympathized with his situation, pointing out that popular pub chain 'Spoons has successfully priced their offerings, ensuring customers keep coming back. On the other hand, a user defended the pub, highlighting that comparing a small family-owned business to a large pub chain might be unfair, and cautioning that the industry's landscape could suffer if independent pubs disappear.

However, amid the discussions, many people found amusement in the receipt's comical spelling errors rather than focusing solely on the prices. Sarcastically commenting on the misspelling of "sandwich" as "sandwhich," one user remarked, "If they can't spell correctly, how can they justify such high prices?" Another jokingly inquired, "What on earth is a 'sandwhich'?" while someone humorously claimed that it must be a fancy version of a sandwich, with the extra cost associated with the added letter 'h.'
