Now 'dine and dashers' who enjoyed £260 slap-up meal before fleeing the ... trends now
A group of 'dine and dashers' accused of enjoying a slap-up meal costing £260 and leaving the pub without paying have finally settled their bill after being named and shamed online.
The family dined at the Britannia Inn in Par, Cornwall, last Saturday afternoon but fled without paying when the waitress' back was turned, with some leaving in an allegedly untaxed Skoda Fabia.
After the pub posted CCTV pictures to Facebook of the group tucking into meals they received numerous calls and messages naming members of the party.
The pub then confirmed the bill had been settled, adding: 'After revealing one of the scammers' identities, a family member contacted us and settled the bill. Let's hope they get reimbursed by their shameful relative.'
The alleged dine and dashers ordered plates of £17.50 lasagne and £25 rump steak, 10 pints of Stella Artois lager costing £5.90 each and four pints of Madri lager at £6.20 each as well as kids meals of sausage and chips, penne pasta and chicken nuggets. The final bill came to £260.50.
Bosses at the pub said the way the group left was 'no mistake' and 'calculated'.
The restaurant said the group planned their getaway and are appealing for help to identify them

'Normally we take bookings for groups over 10 but during half term we do sometimes have large family groups walk in so obviously they didn't give us any details. You don't expect it in the main restaurant.
'They didn't order the largest or most
