Tipping & service charges

在英国,并非所有的地方都要付小费。 If you feel the service was good and you want to show your appreciation, here is a guide to customary practice:

Most hotel bills include a service charge, usually 10-12%. Where a service charge is not included in a hotel restaurant, it is customary to give 10-15% of the restaurant bill. For rooms, you can leave an optional amount to room staff.

Many restaurant bills include a service charge; make sure you check the bill to avoid tipping twice. Where a service charge is not included, it is customary to leave a tip of 10-15% of the bill. 现在,有一些餐厅的帐单会列有“小费参考”这一项。
