SOUP is continuing to insist it is a main course despite barely functioning as a starter.
The liquid food has rejected calls to accept entrée or drink status because it believes it can make it as a full meal against public opinion.
But diner Wayne Hayes said: “I paid a tenner for that and if anything I’m hungrier.
“Serving it with a chunk of bread and some butter is a giveaway. You wouldn’t catch a proper dinner resorting to that.
“Next it’ll be claiming it’s a dessert too. You wouldn’t get this shit from a bowl of olives. They know their place.”
Nathan Muir, a French onion and sage soup, said: “I refuse to accept second-class status as sustenance for the ill or elderly.
“I can make it into the big leagues. Look at salad. The whole world treats it like it’s the real deal, even though it’s just a bunch of tasteless leaves.”
