Hartlepool Eats, a food delivery app, have shared the unique request via their Instagram page, with the caption “right that’s it, own up”.

When ordering from Hartlepool restaurant Wallis & Co via the app, the unknown man had to go to great lengths to be able to enjoy a cheat meal in secret after seeing the burger advertised on Instagram.

The delivery note said: “Now then, I need a huge favour please, our lass thinks I’m on a diet… but I’ve been craving that Smokey John burger since I saw it on the gram earlier.

“Plz ring me when you get here, I’ll be in the garage ‘on the cross trainer’. Cheers.”

Hartlepool Eats only launched 15 weeks ago, however the company marketing director, Jake Wiley from Hartlepool, has revealed that he has only just started to notice the unique delivery notes.

The 29-year-old said: “To be honest, I’ve only just started looking out for the delivery notes of the orders that we are receiving.

"It is great to see the funnier side of things as I monitor them to ensure that they are all going through to the takeaways – keep them coming I say.”

The app operates just like JustEat or UberEats, however Jake has tailored it to suit smaller businesses in Hartlepool with joining fees being a lot cheaper than the mainstream apps – something which he says allows him to give back to the town.

"However we are also donating money back into the towns charities and this is something that we will always continue to do.

"It’s a local app, set up by a local lad to help local people.”
