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.'
