Some of London's leading restaurants are going to abolish 12.5 per cent service charge that they use to add to the bills.
D&D London will discontinue the discretionary service charge at all of its restaurants in London in a move that will allow its customers to decide how much money they wish to leave as a tip.
Speaking on the topic, D&D chairman, Des Gunewardena, said, “I think it will improve the service and in the current economic environment, this is the right thing to do for our customers.”
The change will come into effect from October 1 when the new legislation will come into force.
D&D London said in a statement that all the money paid as tips by customers would be distributed fairly to staff.
However, could witness a fall in the extra earnings due to the new legislation.
