Frozen meat and bottles of alcohol worth more than £1,000 were stolen in a burglary at a Petersfield restaurant.
Muddle-on Tandoori Restaurant, the newest and least-frequented of Petersfield’s curry houses, was broken in to, through the back door of the premises, in the early hours of June 28.
Al Frezi, speaking on behalf of Muddle-on Tandoori Restaurant, told us: “A huge amount of unused meat and alcohol was stolen and there is absolutely no truth in the rumour that most of the meat was approaching its use-by date.”
Since opening, Muddle-on has specialised in attracting once-only visitors who then return to the tried-and-tested Spice Rack or Parrot Spice Tandoori.
The theft came at an ideal time for the restaurant with dwindling numbers coinciding with unusually high temperatures.
The insurance claim will provide a much-needed cash injection for the business which has been hit hard by the delay in the opening of the Netherregions’ Red Lion pub which will undoubtedly provide most of its trade after closing time.
