Tipping a meal in a pub

No tip / some tip / 10% tip ???

Advice please.

I am confused on the matter as pub meals become more restaurant like.

Give it in cash direct to the staff.

Not how! / how much? (If any)

Does someone putting a couple of plates of food on the table = service ?

10% of course. Be generous.

Skinflint.

If you've booked a table for a meal and get drinks delivered etc then yeah I'd tip as I would a restaurant.

What about you wander in, order at the bar, pick your drinks off the bar - and the only actual service is having the food put on the table??

widenation - 28 Dec 2018 21:22:10 (#7 of 63)

Probably not. In that scenario you usually pay up front anyway.

Depends on the quality of the food. You're tipping the kitchen too.

If someone has brought something to your table, then tip, 10% min, more if service was notably good/the staff triumphed in face of disaster.

Do you tip in McDonalds when they bring the food to you?

I was recently at Pizza Express who add an 'optional' service charge. They were a few quid short on this charge and raised it. It was quite embarrassing, and only due to no one realising they had to pay their exact share for a work xmas lunch (no cash etc). I had put in £2 for having 1 beer and 1 pizza delivered to my table and subsequently worked out that I was probably about 50p short.

I'm afraid I'm not tipping 10% of the cost of a meal just because someone puts it on the table!

( particularly as some places get you to pick up your own cutlery!)

Table service in Maccys is ftw 100 emoji ok hand sign emoji.

As for tipping in pubs, fuck that shit. Not the ones I go to anyway.

If they bring it to your table, 10% for a normal/OK service. More if more, less is less.

Tipping is a good way of assuaging the guilt of having noisy kids.

Especially if they're 29 YO.

you go to a bar/pub. you sit at the bar. the bartender takes and satisfies your order, maybe 2 or 3 times.

no tip? around here, you aren't likely to see him smile when next you drop by.

or even if you go 10%.

widenation - 28 Dec 2018 23:30:43 (#17 of 63)

What if you're paying contactless?

CarlosFandango - 28 Dec 2018 23:34:55 (#18 of 63)

Just leave the tip and do a runner on the actual bill.

nolongerstumpy - 29 Dec 2018 00:09:40 (#19 of 63)

15%, we all have to live.

Tomnoddy - 29 Dec 2018 00:38:40 (#20 of 63)

Pay them a living wage, don't tip. We'll, why not?
