Restau­rant caught out by wild salmon claims

The Sunday Telegraph - - News -

A river­side restau­rant which claimed its salmon was fresh from the River Wye bought it from fish farms.

Trad­ing Stan­dards of­fi­cers were tipped off that Foyles restau­rant in Glas­bury-on-Wye, Powys, claimed to be serv­ing lo­cally-caught wild salmon and trout when in re­al­ity its own­ers used salmon from farm out­lets.

Linda De­wan, 50, a part­ner in Foyles, ad­mit­ted falsely de­scrib­ing food on its menus, web­site and so­cial me­dia. She was fined £2,000 and costs of £5,380. A Powys Coun­cil spokesman said: “Busi­nesses have to get their de­scrip­tions cor­rect and must not mis­lead con­sumers.”
