“Service charge rip off”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Why when the food, service and ambience are so good does the management, despite repeated protests, continue to include a 12.5% service charge.
Why should anybody pay them 12.5% on the VAT content of 20% within the bill?
The staff tell me they do not get any portion of the tips.
This French operation would not be legally allowed this rip off in France. Why here in Bath?
