Tips for the team policy

With cashless payments on the rise, it can sometimes be hard to leave a tip. That’s why we’ve made the decision to add a discretionary contribution of 7.5% to your bill on departure, so you can rest assured your tip for the team is taken care of.

All of your tip will go to the team. Plus, we’ll also make a contribution to local charities on your behalf. And, of course, if you’d rather not contribute, please just say and we’ll take the 7.5% charge from your bill.
