Greggs was quick to assure the pie-eating public that this is not a reflection on the company, just an error on Google's part.

I'm sure @GreggstheBakers don't really think this about their customers! #business #fail

There were suggestions someone should get sacked for the debacle. But on Twitter Greggs said this would be "a bit harsh".

@GreggstheBakers I suggest you sack someone

And with the addition of a sausage roll, this seemed to do the trick.

Sorry @GreggstheBakers, we're on it. Throw in a sausage roll and we'll get it done ASAP. #fixgreggs
