Diner 'spikes his own food with pubic hair' to try and get free meal

A restaurant manager was left ‘disgusted’ after two customers allegedly planted pubic hair in their meal so they could claim it for free.

Disturbing CCTV footage from Jaan’s BBQ Kitchen Restaurant and Grill in Blackburn, Lancashire is said to show one man fumble inside his shorts, before sprinkling the hair on their food during a lunchtime trip out in August.

The manager at Jaan’s BBQ said he was ‘shocked’ and ‘deeply saddened’ that someone would try to ‘cheat’ the business, with many restaurants still struggling amid the coronavirus crisis.

Speaking to This Is Lancashire, the manager claimed the pair inquired about the Eat Out To Help Out offer, before being told it was not valid on a Thursday.

They then ordered £55 Jaan’s Mega Platter, which serves six people, along with poppadoms and drinks – despite being warned the meal was far too big for them.

When a waitress presented them with their bill, they are said to have complained there was hair on the biryani, kebabs and the naan breads.

Suspecting something was amiss, staff checked the CCTV footage to witness one of the men allegedly putting his hands under his cap and reaching into his shorts twice.

The manager says he argued with the pair for up to 10 minutes, before they paid just £20 and left.

He has accused the two customers of being ‘horrible and unfair on hard working folk’.

He said: ‘It has not been an easy time for businesses and this was shocking. If we didn’t check the camera that day then there was no way of finding out the truth.

‘We have always tried to help with any customer queries and go out of our way to help people. We have got great reviews from people.’

The footage has now been sent to police.
