UK: 2 men banned at all-you-can-eat joint for eating too much - World News - IBNLive

Two men with big appetites have been banned from an all-you-can-eat restaurant in the UK as the manager of the eatery feared that they might drive him out of business. George Dalmon, a former rugby player, and his friend Andy Miles were banned from all-you-can-eat restaurant, Gobi, in Brighton, after the manager branded them "a couple of pigs".

The men would each eat five bowls of stir-fry during their regular meals at the Mongolian barbecue, which invites guests to create their own dishes from the buffet, the Daily Telegraph reported. Diners are told they can request meals "as many times as you wish" for 12 pounds.
The manager, who did not want to be named, said the two friends were eating him out of business. He said: "Basically they just come in and pig out. We have put up with them for two years but I've had enough."

"They are in such a hurry to beat everyone to the food they spoil everything. We are supposed to be a buffet but they eat everything out of the bowls before people can get there. We just can't keep doing this," the manager said. He said diners drank only water and never paid the optional service charge. He added: "We are not a charity, we're a business. It's our restaurant and we can tell people not to come back if we don't want them to."

But Dalmon said the restaurant should honour its promotion. He said, "They've only got small bowls and you can't get enough in there so we always go back for more. We've been eating there for a couple of years then suddenly the owner came to our table in front of all the customers and went absolutely mental. He said we were a couple of pigs and we were banned for life. I couldn't believe it," he said.

well. this is why there is a concept named fair usage policy. :confused: in a real world. other consumers should easily compensate for the excessive consumption by these folks.

I would side the folks who eat.. I mean a lot people simply don't eat 30% of what that these joints would be expecting people to eat... I doubt they were making losses only because of these people. I would say the only logical reason could be that they were making losses irrespective of these guys & they just want to cut down on losses as much as possible.In fact the guy could very well promote the joint using them ... "Coming for past 2 years, excellent food, we eat as much as want"... I am sure these guys would have obliged to give a testimonial.

I wonder whether they can sue the joint for refusing to serve them food for reasons other than what is normally acceptable....
