I bought two meals at Burger King and was hit with Whopper bill of £700

Felicity Cotton, 28, was hit by the mammoth charge on her debit card after visiting a Burger King restaurant and ordering a bacon double cheeseburger and a nacho burger meal.

The hotel manager, from Leamington, didn’t notice the overcharge until two days later and says she wasn’t given a receipt by the restaurant.

After more than a week chasing a refund, she says the money has still not been returned to her account - leaving her worrying about how to pay her bills.

I ordered two meals, when I got home one of the meals was actually the wrong order also.

“I realised what had happened when I checked my bank balance in the morning and realised I seemed to be low on funds!

“I felt angry when I found out and very worried as £700 is a lot money to be overcharged, when you have bills to pay and responsibilities. I called the store on the Tuesday to be told no manager was there to help me.

“Apparently the money may take ten days to appear in my account which is ridiculous.”

Miss Cotton said the whole experience had left her with a bad taste and she would be unlikely to visit Burger King again in the near future.

“I will not be eating there again, until I am offered some kind of sorry and when I get my money back!”

Burger King has been asked for a comment.
