However, another follower defended Candice and admitted it makes him ‘really angry’ because he’s witnessed pubs turn away walk in customers away due to reservations – only for those customers not to show up.
Candice responded: ‘Yes we have had to turn people away too!’
It comes just days after Candice appeared on Good Morning Britain and revealed she has introduced a £10 deposit at lunch and a £20 deposit in the evening to ensure they don’t lose business.
She explained their capacity has reduced from 40 to 20 people, and hit out at diners who don’t show up for bookings, branding them ‘rude’ and saying their behaviour is ‘unacceptable’.

In response to one comment from a follower, Candice commented: ‘Oh I’m sorry I’m concerned about my pub, my business surviving’ (pictured)
‘We’re in a tiny village pub we have to take out half our tables, said Candice. ‘If we had 20 people not turn up, we would have no business. We fought hard to keep our business running.
‘It’s about survival and I don’t get this thought process if you have booked a table not having the common decency just to make a phone call and say, “I can’t come”.
She went on: ‘We’ve had a couple of no shows, we’ve had people swap their bookings and we’re not animals, we’re not horrible, of course we’ll swap it, or if there is an extreme circumstance we give their money back. We’re not awful human beings.
‘But the hospitality industry is just trying to survive at the moment, we’re on our knees and we’re trying to survive. Twenty seven no-shows is unacceptable, it’s rude and costing lives and money and businesses.’
And she’s not the only person to complain – because fellow TV chef Tom Kerridge also recently hit out at ‘selfish’ customers who did not show up for bookings at his London eatery.
