That’s an OUCH from the customer and an OUCH for the restaurant!

Irish Restaurant ordered to pay 20,000 euros to injured customer

It was recently reported on the BBC that a Dublin High Court Judge made an award of €20,000.00 to a lady who had been directed to a specific table by the hotel manager in the Mullingar Park Hotel in County Westmeath. Upon sitting down the lady injured her left knee by hitting it against a table leg that was hidden from view by the table cloth.
