Tipping

  • Hotels One pound per bag is standard; gratuity for cleaning staff is completely at your discretion.
  • Pubs Not expected unless table service is provided, then £1 for a round of drinks.
  • Restaurants For decent service 10%, and up to 15% at more expensive places. Check to see if service has been added to the bill already (most likely for large groups).
  • Taxis Generally rounded up to the nearest pound.
