- Four diners dodged bill at the Churrasco Grill in West Derby Village, Liverpool
- The furious restaurant took to Facebook to threaten to expose the four diners
- In a twist, the abashed diners sent a note apologising along with the money
A restaurant shamed four ‘gobs****’ customers who ran off without paying the bill into apologising and returning to settle up after threatening to post their pictures on Facebook.
Staff at Churrasco Grill in West Derby Village, Liverpool gave the bill dodgers a ‘gentle warning’ to come back with the money or they would share their photos on social media and contact the police.
The post, which has been shared hundreds of times on Facebook, read: ‘To the four boys that was in churrasco grill tonight [April 30] we are giving you a gentle warning to come back and settle your bill or your pictures will be posted all over social media as well as contacting the police.
‘You have a time scale of five days to repay the bill. We work very hard here and for that to happen as kind of ruined our night!’
In an unexpected turn of events, a member of the group returned to the restaurant to pay the bill, leaving a bundle of money and a note reading: ‘From the lads the other day – sorry about that.’

The restaurant provided an update on their Facebook Page which confirmed the payment in full.
It read: ‘With the luck of social media thank you all we have received the money back, thank you to the boys for being respectful and coming back, we appreciate it.’
A Churrasco restaurant manager later added: ‘We wanted to give them the chance to say we don’t want to contact the police, we know times are hard and everyone is struggling.
‘If it was a situation where they were struggling they could have come to us and told us.
‘We’ve had customers in the past who have said ‘we haven’t had enough money in the bank and we didn’t know it was going to come to that much, can we come back and pay tomorrow?’ and we’ve done that.
‘We just wanted to make a good gesture from us to them but obviously we don’t want us to lose out as well. They came back with the money after three days and they even left a £7 tip.

The manager added: ‘When it happened, I just said to one of the other managers ‘why don’t we put a post on Facebook like this?’
‘We had them on CCTV but revealing them was the last thing we wanted to do. We just wanted to give them a chance and they came back.
‘We’re happy that they’ve come back and rectified the situation and we would be happy to have them come back in again.
‘We’re just made up that they came back and paid and we appreciate it.
‘We want them to know and say thank you because we didn’t want to post them on social media. That was the last thing in the world we wanted to do.’
