A BRATTY middle-class child in a gastropub has ordered off-menu with the full approval of his dreadful parents, it has emerged.
Nine-year-old Joshua Hudson was shown the children’s options at the Plough & Dragon in Norfolk but instead asked for three venison sausages with butter-braised cabbage and port-and-rosemary gravy.
Waiter Tom Booker said: “When they came in half an hour late from a country walk with their expensive outdoor gear and bloody labrador I instantly thought: ’Here we f**king go.’
“We’re a simple country pub but we’ve built up a bit of a reputation for our kitchen over the last few years so naturally we’re a magnet for twats. I tell you what, though, this lot were next-level.
“First the boy wants to sit at the big table for seven, but we were too busy. That got his tits up. Then I handed him the kid’s menu and he looked at me like I’d thrown down a snotty napkin before saying ‘Do you have venison sausages?’
“I said I could check with the kitchen but he said ‘Well you’re not going to check with the chancellor of the exchequer are you?’ His mum decided this merited a photo, including my red face, and his dad said ‘You’ll be on 8 Out of 10 Cats at this rate, Josh’. He won’t.
“And guess who came up to the bar two hours later with his dad’s debit card to settle the tab? Oh yes, I shit you not.”
