Nat Cooper had been out celebrating her birthday with a bottomless brunch at Chapo’s El Campeon in Greater Manchester on June 11 when the incident occurred. The 43-year-old said she even wore “sensible flat sandals” for the meal.
But after two “big big” vodkas and a can of Lambrini on the bus, Nat and her friend Siobhan arrived at the restaurant and immediately hit the cocktails and bottomless prosecco.
During the two-hour sitting which cost the pair £35 each, Nat drank countless Porn Star Martinis and glasses of prosecco which ultimately led to a visit to the toilet where it all went wrong.
After sitting on the toilet with the cubicle door open so she could carry on chatting, Nat fell face-first to the floor, smacking her eye hard.
The poor grandmother-of-one was picked up by Siobhan and believes she had a concussion as she does not remember the fall or journey home.
But she has a swollen face as a memento from the accident.
Petrol station cashier and mum-of-six Nat, from St Helen’s, Merseyside, said: “Seeing my eye the next day, I was shocked. I was frantic, like what have I done? Please tell me I’ve not been fighting – I’m a nan!
“I’ve only been to one bottomless brunch before, in Wigan, and I was sick at the restaurant before we left.
“This was my birthday day out with my best friend, so I was excited and thought I’m really letting my hair down.
“I had just come back from holiday so thought I could handle the cocktails but clearly they are not proper spirits in an all-inclusive resort and these hit differently.
“Obviously, we’d had pre-drinks – two big big vodkas because Siobhan pours them like a pro.
“I got a drink for on the bus too – a can of Lambrini, because Lambrini girls like to have fun, don’t they? We got to the cocktail place and I just started necking the cocktails.
“I was drinking Porn Star Martinis but you get a glass of prosecco as well which keeps getting filled up so you’ve got two drinks at a time and both my hands were full.
“I had some food which was gorgeous, I think, because this bit I remember, and then s*** hits the fan.
“I don’t even remember going to the toilet but apparently I went and like the classy bird that I am, I sat on the toilet but left the door open talking to Siobhan and then I just flopped forward.
“If I had shut the door, I would have only banged on the door, but I hit the floor.
“I don’t remember leaving the place or getting home. I think I had a concussion because I wanted to sleep and didn’t know I had fallen.
“We went outside to wait for the bus and I was on the floor at the bus stop when a very kind stranger stopped and asked to take us home.
“Instead, we asked to get dropped off at our local pub. I didn’t drink and I still didn’t know I had fallen but apparently wouldn’t let anyone phone an ambulance and the barmaid gave me ice for my eye.
“Eventually, Siobhan and her mum pretty much carried me home and I went to bed.
“I was like Dory out of ‘Finding Nemo’ – I kept forgetting I had fallen and asking who hit me.
“The restaurant itself was second to none, beautiful place and lovely staff. I hope they let me back, it wasn’t their fault, it was my fault, I shouldn’t have been pre-drinking!
“I don’t think bottomless brunches are for me!”
