Woman raging after paying £30 for meal at the Shard – ‘it was more plate than food’

If you’ve ever travelled around the country you’ll know that the price of a meal can vary wildly – and don’t even get us talking about the price of a pint!

No matter your financial situation it’s nice to know that you got a delicious meal for the right price, but some London haunts aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.

A 21-year-old diner was absolutely raging after spending £30 to dine at the Shard – a 72 storey skyscraper which is one of the tallest buildings in London.

The young woman, @raveen_x, posted a snap of her meal on Instagram, and said: “Guys look at my £30 meal I got at The Shard.”

In the photos a plate is shown a piece of chicken, a potato and a blob of brown sauce.

If you want chips, like in the snap, you’ll need to spend an additional £5.

As commenters below the tweet pondered what the dish even was, the user clarified: “That’s chicken by the way.

“The fries were £5 extra. What an L.”

And, strong opinions raged in the comments of her post.

One person said: “I don’t think she would’ve minded the prices if the food was nice… that chicken looks like it’s been in the sun far too long!!”

Another quipped: “Someone s*** on your plate and charged you £30 for it.”



The Shard is the perfect destination for romance

A third added: “I’d actually cry… imagine skipping lunch because you know you’re going to The Shard and this is what they come out with for £30. My condolences.”

One helpful user pointed out that a far cheaper alternative is just down the street – the iconic pie chain Manze’s .

They said: “What did you expect? ? For future reference, Manze’s is about 200 metres down the road.”

“This is £7,” he added.
