The British have always been famous for their manners. From work life and romance to table manners and body language, guiding lights like Debrett's and George Routledge have taught us how to behave. With over a century's experience in the very best of company, British Pathé is pleased to invite you to it's own guide to etiquette.
In the UK, tipping in restaurants is normally discretionary. If your bill says 'Service not Included' then it is customary to offer a 10% gratuity. Don't feel obliged to tip if the service has been poor though. Tipping shouldn't be used as a way of offloading the coppers in your pockets.
In smart hotels, expect to tip the porters if they have taken your luggage to your room. Likewise with the doorman if they have helped with taxis and luggage. You can leave a gratuity for housekeeping in your room.
You don't need to tip in pubs unless food has been delivered to your table and then you would leave a 10% tip.
