Channel 4 reality show Four in a Bed follows four B&B owners staying at each other’s hotels. They then decide on an amount to pay the owners, leaving only a price they deem acceptable based on their experiences. During one episode, viewers slammed a B&B’s cooking, deeming the sausages “anaemic”, but owner Mike Haywood has hit back at the claims.
Fans of the show took to Twitter during the episode, which aired earlier this week, to criticise a dish served at a Welsh B&B.
One wrote: “Tomorrow’s show is cancelled due to them all having food poisoning due to the undercooked sausages #fourinabed.”
Another commented: “Sausages look undercooked to me #FourInABed.”
“They did look a bit anaemic,” a third penned.
But Mark, who owns the Deri-Down Guesthouse, has now responded to the claims, insisting the guest enjoyed the sausages.
“From our point of view, we don’t cook the sausages in a frying pan,” he said.
“We cook them on a plate in the oven. So they’ve fully cooked in their own juices.
“Sometimes they don’t come out as brown as people would like.”
Speaking to Metro, he added the temperature of the meat is checked with a gauge and always served at above 76 degrees.
“They might look ‘anaemic’, but as everybody said, they were all very tasty,” he continued.
He informed the publication he and co-owner and wife Del keep records of what they do, and have the latest food hygiene standards on hand at all times.
He went on to correct viewers that the food was in fact a Welsh breakfast, not an English one.
Fellow contestants on the show didn’t criticise the food.
“The sausages are very nice,” guest Carmen commented as Margaret added: “I thought the sausages were nice.
“I thought the bacon was good and I thought the tomatoes were very good.”
Glenn and Carmen later went on to comment about their disappointment with the eggs, but the judgements were based on personal preference, with Glenn saying he prefers his eggs runny.
Guests also praised the rooms in the B&B, with many admiring the facilities.
But on closer inspection, Antoinette discovered a number of hairs in her bed.
“It’s not Mike’s and it certainly isn’t Del’s,” she commented. “The bed is very clean but it’s very hairy.”
Four in a Bed airs weekdays at 5pm on Channel 4.
