‘Racist sent me ba­nana on pub app’

Scottish Daily Mail - - News -

A WETHER­SPOON cus­tomer claims he was the vic­tim of racism af­ter a stranger used the pub’s food-or­der­ing app to send a ba­nana to his ta­ble.

Mark D’Arcy-Smith, 24, was drink­ing at The Rich­mal Cromp­ton in Brom­ley, south-east Lon­don, when a bar­man de­liv­ered the piece of fruit.

Mr D’Arcy Smith (pic­tured) left shortly af­ter, say­ing staff did not treat it se­ri­ously enough. He has since con­tacted the po­lice. ‘It was clearly sent by some­one try­ing to be racist,’ he said.

A spokesman for the Wether­spoon chain, which al­lows pun­ters to or­der drinks and food to their ta­ble via a phone app, said: ‘We apol­o­gise to the cus­tomer. This is now a po­lice mat­ter.’
