In a post on social media, the pub said: "These delightful ladies were part of a group of six women that decided to leave today without paying their £140 bill!!

"Shot off in a 73 plate car, nice of them to stick their fingers up to our staff who tried to chase after them as they sped off!

"You’d think they would be able to pay their bill unless their car was stolen too.

"You people are why pubs are closing every’s a hard enough job as it is without scumbags thinking it’s ok to fill their faces with food and drink and then do a runner. You should be ashamed of yourselves."

A spokesperson from the pub said: "Thankfully there are some decent people still left in this world as today we have had a visit from a member of the family of one of the women to pay the bill and leaving us a letter of apology!

"To this lady we send our sincere thanks for your honesty and genuine remorse for their behaviour, it is very much appreciated!

"In the current climate, we pubs/restaurants are struggling to keep our doors open for your enjoyment and work hard to provide the best we can for you all, the support we’ve received gives us the motivation to KEEP ON GOING!"
