A restaurant has apologised to its customers after a printing mishap left it offering a ‘Hot Dog in a Bum’ on the children’s menu.
Tuttles Corner, in Station Square, Lowestoft, was left with hundreds of defective flyers and menus following a mistake by its printer three months ago.
Manager Muneeb Masood said: “I don’t know how they did it wrong. We approved the design but didn’t notice the spelling mistake.
“They did our flyers as well – so we had to stop sending them out.”
At first the restaurant didn’t notice the fateful typo – which should read ‘Hot Dog in a Bun’ – until a customer pointed it out a few days later.
Mr Masood added: “We were a little scared at first but you have to laugh at the same time.
“It’s not appropriate but it wasn’t intentional – it was their mistake.”
“I would like to apologise to anyone who has been offended – please accept our apology.”
A new batch of menus will be arriving at the restaurant in the coming weeks.
