Decided to come off the busy streets & go to this restaurant y'day whilst strolling through the Christmas markets. When the bill arrived it looked inflated.
The opinion of my sister & I is that if we have a long and enjoyable many courses of a meal with good service ,we always pay a decent deserved tip.
However if we bob in for a quick 1 course lunch we don’t expect to get hammered for extra’s added like charity payment of £1.00 + a tip up front without giving us a choice to judge service. Whilst the waiter service was good, food choice & standard also good & value for money....the whole experience was spoilt it by HN assuming to deduct a % up front.
Message for Harvey Nicks...It isn't a charity donation of my choice it is a tariff. and as for tips, we will make the decision on that.
