Discretionary Tips bug the hell out of me, don't add it assuming you're going to get something from me

Most restaurants do this for large groups and TBH you can't begrudge them of this. Large groups are a cunt to deal especially as a waiter. And particularly when the inevitable split-bill is requested and the poor fuckers end up being left with a £1.50 tip for 2 hours of hassle.
 
I always seem to be the one paying near the end of the bill when it's clear someone has underpaid/not tipped and already fucked off somewhere else.

Rudge where's my backup here you numbskull



Sorry bae, Im here now.
 
Right 20/30p was always the norm up here. I actually posted this after a mate pointed out that its weird it hasnt gone up with inflation and since Ive been legal in pubs for 20 odd years its always been that. My rules are as follows :-
 
Pubs - I'll say take your own or round it up to the next pound and say take that
Barbers - Its usually £7 or £8 so round it up to the tenner
Restaurant - 10% for decent service, 15% for excellent service 20% if the waitress is dressed like a nice brass and im shitface
Takeaway deliveries - £0
 
Whoever mentioned that 12.5% before. So who is that for and for what reason if it doesnt go to the staff? When I was a glass collector years ago all the tips went together and the waiters and barstaff got the most and the glass collectors got maybe half what they got.

Some restaurants claim they take the tips (12.5% service charge) to boost the general wage of the staff who work there.

Did jack moves on bars/nightclubs for years. Bought my first TT from behind a bar lol
 
Bartenders in nightclubs taking 50-100k a night at the weekend are going home with 1500/2k from a night's work, trust me don't feel bad for them.

so you don't think having clean knives and forks is part of the service? 



Of course that is not part of the service, clean knives and forks are the basics
 
@Shiverman - I get your POV but in hotels especially, bartenders and waiting staff get tipped and the Chefs were always paid significantly more than everyone else, so fuck them!




Bartenders almost never get tipped in the UK. Wait staff do. Bar staff make all the drinks for wait staff whilst serving the rest of the bar, and are on the same wage. Everyone has to pull their weight, it's not just the wait staff providing the service, it relies on all the cogs. Chefs don't make more than the rest of the staff, except obviously the head chef, who doesn't take tips because they're management.
 
I mean, I can see your reasoning but you're completely wrong.


   
That's cos they assume the bar tenders are nicking. The till is right there ffs lol
 
Chefs work in ridiculous heat though, never met a chef who isn't a complete alcoholic or junkie.

The days before electronic tills were the best, was absolutely killing it. Pint of water in the coke dispenser = £100 in the pocket. Could easily get away with 2/3 of them a week.

Takeaway deliveries - £0


I'd sooner give a takeaway driver a tip than bar staff, seems like a shittier job than bar and much tighter margins too.

To be honest, Ive never really considered it rather than being tight over it. That and the fact they ALWAYS fuck my orders up or arrive late

Yep, used to do this a lot when I worked for Pitcher and Piano and festival events. Regularly making £100-200 a night in 'tips'. I am the reason you now have drinks tokens at festivals

"take your own" means take 20-30p here

I've said it before down south and the cheeky cunts have taken the price of a drink for themselves. Never again
