My husband's £35 Christmas lunch was a ready meal in a plastic bag: Wife's anger at pub's 'rubbish' dinner...Yes, that's because you spent £35 per head at a chain pub you daft bint. Anything even half decent you're looking at £100 upwards and booking well in advance.

Mrs Chaplin said she felt ripped off after paying almost £400 for the meal for 11 at The Cricketers in Rainham, Kent.For £400, Waitrose would have delivered everything to your door in a state where you could just bung it in the oven with no preparation.
