A "mortified" staff member who made the error has been urged to keep their "chin up" as "one-off mistakes happen".

A manager at Hawksmoor Manchester steakhouse and cocktail bar mistakenly grabbed a customer a bottle of Chateau le Pin Pomerol 2001 worth more than $5,000, when the customer had ordered a bottle that cost about $290, according to the tweet.

The restaurant also tweeted a photo of the two wines side by side, saying: "They look pretty similar OK?!"

The customer drank the wine without noticing, and the manager only realised what had happened later that evening.

The diner reportedly ordered a bottle of 2001 Chateau Pichon Longueville Contesse de Lalande.

"Sometime later another member of staff said, "Ooh, someone is drinking a very impressive wine, and at the bar!' That's when we realized".

One sticker-shocked tweeter asked the steakhouse, "Who is buying £4500 bottles of wine?!?"

Robert Parker gave 2001 Le Pin 98 points in 2004, and the cheapest price Imbibe could find for it on Wine-Searcher was £1,400 for a half-bottle.

Will Beckett, the co-founder of Hawksmoor, said to The Telegraph that the manager would not be punished for the mistake.

The 2001 Château Le Pin features in the "rarities" section of Hawksmoor's menu and is the most expensive item on the list.

"Its deep ruby/plum/purple color is accompanied by an extraordinary perfume of creme de cassis, cherry liqueur, plums, licorice, caramel, and sweet toast". He added that although his staffer was horrified at her mistake, he continues to rib her with "the most gentle teasing". When the patron polished that off and requested a second bottle, the mortified server discovered it was a one-of-a-kind at the restaurant.
