A FURIOUS mum has slammed the "disgusting" portion size of a kid’s meal her family was served at a restaurant.

Vickie Priddle was stunned to see her son was served just three chicken nuggets and seven chips.

The equally shocked boy then asked "are you kidding me?" when the miserly dish arrived at the Gatsby in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, Chronicle Live reports.

Mrs Priddle said was charged £4.25 for the meal.

She said: "He asked if we could go to our usual place for pizza after.

"For the price it was disgusting."

But bosses at the Gatsby, a family-owned restaurant, claimed the head chef was off sick with a bad back on the day the meal was served up.

And they claimed the family had refused "half their meal" by not wanting a side of beans or peas.

Yet the area manager said: "I agree she should have had more chips. It is a one-off."

Incensed by what she was paying for, Mrs Priddle took a photo which appears to show the three nuggets and just seven chips.

She said: "I should have complained in the pub to be fair but my mam felt c**p - she just wanted to eat and leave.”

"The staff would have heard the children's reactions though."

The restaurant said they have invited the family back.

But Mrs Priddle said she spoke out to warn others, and not to get a free meal.

On TripAdvisor 25 per cent of reviews for the Gatsby are "excellent" ratings.
