A woman was left in hysterics when she ordered some “cheesy chips” at a Wetherspoon pub.
The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, visited the Sir Henry Segrave on Lord Street in Southport yesterday (Sunday).
She became peckish while having drinks with some friends, and ordered a side of cheesy chips.
But when the dish arrived, she was a little surprised.
She said: “It was only Wetherspoons so I wasn’t expecting a gourmet meal, but it did make me laugh.
“Can you see the cheese? I struggled to.”
Many people responded to her post in a food review group on Facebook.
One wrote: “It’s not World War II, is cheese still being rationed?”
Another asked: “Is that mayonnaise?” with someone else adding: “I did think that was salad cream”.
One astounded woman wrote: “Oh my gosh, that’s meant to be cheese?”

A spokesman for J D Wetherspoon told the ECHO : “We are sorry if the lady is disappointed with the food she received.
