Pub Issues Apology After Muslim Patron Reveals That He Was Unknowingly Served Pork

A Muslim man says he was degraded after he was served pulled pork with his side of chilli fries at a UK pub.

Naz Ali, who had never eaten pork before, was enjoying a meal with family and friends at Farmer John’s in Sutton Coldfield when he discovered he had eaten what he considers to be an unclean meat.

In an interview with local media, the 39-year-old truck driver says he did not ask staff what kind of meat was in the dish and assumed that it was chicken.

Ali, who ordered a beef burger and the side of fries, said he ate about a quarter of the chilli fries before checking with the server.

Ali notes when he complained, the staff apologized and gave the children in his party free desserts.

But the pub’s management claim they also waived the entire bill after Mr Ali complained, reports The Birmingham Mail.

Mr Ali said: “My friend said I should check what I was eating so I asked the waitress and at first she had no idea.

“Then she came back and said she was really, really sorry because it was pork.

“I had food in my mouth and I spat it out and went to the toilet, where I was sick. I felt degraded.”

Ali claims the restaurant staff did not take his complaint seriously and said he’s never had this negative experience before while dining.

He commented: “For religious purposes I don’t eat pork and restaurants should be aware of what people of different religions can and can’t eat. It was a shambles.”

Keep in mind that the menu does not specify what type of meat is used in the side of chilli cheese fries.

A spokesperson for Marston’s Brewery, the owner of Farmer John's, noted: “We are sorry for Mr Ali’s experience, we have apologized and all costs for his table were waived on the day."
