Dine and dash costs £2,078
A STUDENT quaffed a £1,750 bottle of vintage wine as he celebrated his birthday alone at The
Savoy hotel – and then tried to do a runner.
Yahya Egeh spent his 20th birthday on his own in the restaurant at the fivestar venue after being stood up by a woman.
The architecture student decided to drown his sorrows in a £1,750 bottle of 2004 Chateau Mouton Rothschild.
When Egeh saw the £2146.50 bill, including service charge, he tried to slip out of the hotel, on The Strand in London, without paying but security nabbed him.
A district judge ordered him to pay £2,078 but let Egeh off with paying the £238.50p service charge.
