Valentine’s couples step out on lavish £179 dinner of steak, lobster and four bottles of wine for nothing
A loving couple ordered a £179 lavish steak dinner and four bottles of wine on Valentine’s Day without paying for the meal.
The unscrupulous boyfriend came under fire on social media after the owner of The Mill in Stokesley, North Yorkshire, shared a receipt for a dinner on Facebook.

An anonymous woman is finally back the next day after the pub owner shared a picture of the receipt – which included four bottles – on Facebook
The bar revealed that the couple had steak, lobster, halloumi chips, two mussels, a Thai green curry and two bottles of wine.
They warned the couple that the bill must be paid by 4pm on February 15 – adding: “You’re sitting across from the camera and the CCTV couldn’t be more clear.”
They later revealed that a mysterious woman – believed to be her girlfriend – did come in to settle the bill that day.
The couple booked a romantic dinner at the bar last Monday, February 14.
Their bill showed they ordered four bottles of Zinfandel and mussels for £21.50.
They then stuffed a £28 filet mignon, £20 half lobster and £21 Thai curry as mains.

But when it came time to pay, they mysteriously disappeared.
A clerk at the award-winning restaurant said on Facebook: “The lovely couple spent a fortune, including filet mignon and lobster, and lots of bottles of wine…
“While we’re sure it was an honest mistake that you left without paying, please pay your bill by 4pm today.
“You’re sitting across from the camera and the CCTV couldn’t be clearer.
“Happy Valentine’s Day.”
Wine, Food, Crime
They told followers they then managed to contact the man – who admitted he didn’t have enough money to pay but said he would pay when he was paid.
However, on Tuesday night, the entire bill was paid by the woman.
“One last thing…the bill was paid by an anonymous woman believed to be his girlfriend,” the agency said.
Social media users said they hoped the woman would keep her partner away.
One said: “Oh what a pity – hope she doesn’t marry him”
Another wrote: “This is a Valentine’s Day gift she won’t forget.”
Others are more forgiving – arguing that mistakes like this can happen after anyone has had so much alcohol.
“Four bottles of wine? Maybe they just forgot,” someone said.
Another chimed in: “It’s hard for me to remember being there, let alone if I ever paid.”
