Went to strada (tower bridge) with some mates fri. evening. Didn't book so was told we had to wait around 20-30mins. Not too bad so went to the bar. Only 2 people in front of me ordering 2 drinks each. 15mins later I was still waiting. I ordered 3 large glasses of wine. Took him 5 mins to do that. When the bill arrived 2 mins later as he didn't know how the till worked it came to £19 odd pounds. I gave him a £20 note. He went to the till and didn't come back with any change. He started serving the next person. I asked him where my change was. He showed me the receipt. I said it's £19.20. He said look below that. There's a 10% service charge. Its actually over £20. I told him that I'm not paying 10% service charge for drinks while I'm waiting for a table and it had taken him 20mins to get me a drink. For some reason he then lost the ability to understand English. Eventually got my change.

What a blimming cheek. Just assumed everyone was going to pay him a tip. I don't see why I should pay a tip for a bar man and especially someone who can't do his job properly. When I go to the pub they don't ask for tips.

Why do restaurants put a '10% discretionary service charge' on the bill.

A colleague next to me said they're probably only on min. wage and they've got to make their living some how. Sorry but that's not my problem. I prefer to give money to people who really need it through charities not people on min. wage.

It doesn't happen anywhere else. If I want to leave 10% I will. If I go to a shop and they provide a very good service I don't leave a 10% tip. I will ask for the store manager afterwards and tell him what great service I got.

Am I wrong here?

Nope, you're not wrong.

I'm happy to tip if I get good service, but I decide how much and if I tip at all. I flat out won't pay a "service charge" and I'm not even sure if it's legal to put one on a bill in the UK these days.

what about the chef?
If the foods good and the service is crap can I go to the kitchen and give him a tip?
If the service is good then go and tell the manger. Why should I give them a tip anyway.
That's your job. I expect you to be nice and prompt.

Our bill came to just over £100. So the service charge was around £10. for what? Writing down what drinks and food I want and carrying stuff around. Does that require 3 years at university? I'm sorry but that job deserves to be min. wage.

The total time she spent taking our order, bringing it to us and clearing up was probably a total of 5mins. If that. Does that deserve a tenner? Add that all up amoungst all the other tables. f*&^ me that's alot.

Lots of other people out there on min. wage or even work for free that work harder.

You tight ass. As a contractor you should have tipped a £100.

I've just spent a minute of my time reading this rant.

On that basis, rounding up to the nearest three figures you now owe me £100 for my time. Please PM me your bank details immediately.

I've done a few 10k runs, triathlons, movember etc. for charity. always sponsor myself, friends and colleagues generously. Have a monthly direct debit going to GOSH charity as well.

Give your £100 tip to GOSH instead of a healthy european youngster earning a wage for doing something that requires basic skills.

It strikes me that you've let a nice evening out with friends get ruined over 80 pence.

I agree that if the bill said £19.20 then that is what's owed. If there was a service charge (discretionary or otherwise) it should be as a clear separate line but included in the total at the bottom. Whether you choose to argue it with the manager is your choice.

You might get annoyed by the presumption of the barman but personally I would have been back enjoying the drinks with friends rather than waiting for the 80p.

As for the extra £3.33 per person, if it says "service charge will be added" then it's part of the agreed bill. If it says discretionary, it's your choice but IMHO it's part of the cost of a night out.

Getting worked up over whether £3.33 per person is a reasonable cost for having someone set your place, take your order, bring your food, clear your dishes and bring your bill is no way to enjoy time out with friends.

If you're not happy with the service and food from an establishment, don't go there again. If it really was a disaster, talk to the manager.

Don't fret the little things and enjoy the company you're with.

If £100 is a lot of money to you to tip a minimum wage waiter then you're in the wrong game.

You don't half assume a lot. didn't ruin my night at all. thank you very much. Talked about if for 2 mins and that was it. Didn't talk to the manager. Don't remember saying that. I just told the bar man I wasn't going to pay service charge for drinks at a bar especially as he was slow. Took 1 min longer.

Oh. by the way. We paid the tip for the waitress. All smiles, prompt, funny etc. No problem at all there.

If £100 is a lot of money to you to tip a minimum wage waiter then you're in the wrong game.I agree with the OP, give the £100 to a worthwhile cause and a smaller tip to the waiter.

Most of the time restaurant staff do absolutely nothing to earn any gratuity as they expect it most of the time so they have no incentive to actually provide a good service.

£100 to anybody on this board is a lot of money to tip a min. wage waiter for a £100 meal. don't make out you're something that you're not. If you do that then you're a mug.

you have to talk about your work for charity otherwise you won't get any sponsorship. what a tool.

Seems to me the OP is at fault for not reading his bill in the first place, the total was £21.12 and the guy serving him let him off over a pound. I bet that pound meant more to him than 80p does to you, but he didn't feel the need to complain.

Yeah, talking about how you give to charities and about things you did in the past is definitely going to get you sponsorship money. Talk about things you're raising money for now, rather than trying to look good for boasting about what you did already.

rightfluff I understand your rant about the enforced tipping but you shouldn't have mentioned the amount.

One of the issues in that the actual tips go to the restaurant owner not the staff.

Also you may as well got the staff serving you into trouble as if the service charge is mandatory then his till will be down and in most places if your till is down more than once you get sacked after being accused of being a thief.

The bill said 19.20 and then had another total with the discretionary charge. I gave him £20. he decided to not give me the change and allow me to leave the change. That's bad service. the amount is irrelevant.

I've always found that those people who deem the need to do charitable work / sponsored events / donate money and then boast about it are doing it for entirely selfish reasons. It makes them feel good about themselves, allows them to feel better than others, by boasting it craves attention and recognition of ones acts, which by now are shown not to be selfless. Nothing altruistic about it.

On the flip side they are normally miserly and the feeling that boasting about ones 'charity' tends to be a crutch to counter balance the main part. Not saying you're like that of course.

On the main post though. I must apologise. I had suggested a £100 tip based on the fact I thought it was £100 per head and so a 25% of £400 for the meal would have been fair. I didn't realise it was a £100 for the whole meal, at which point that would be deemed excessive. I didn't realise it was possible to get a meal for 4 for less than a £100, so I assume that the restaurant you went to is one of those Hungry Horse types places?

Sadly, not.

It did include not letting patients fall out of windows, and not allowing patients to commit suicide though.

I'm not sure it was listed in any sort of ascending order. There were other things in between, like; don't accidently leave foreign objects in a patients body after surgery - etc. The usual minor stuff

Oh, yes. I returned late last night from a weekend that would have made Olly Reed proud. My productivity is not great today.

Malaga (Fuengirola) is a sh1thole though. Not somewhere I will be returning too.

Exactly Prince. I agree.

Churchill thinks he can attack anyone on the board who posts a different view to him.

I hope he's learnt his lesson this time.
