United Kingdom has a certain rule to follow when it comes to tipping and that is the standard rule. Giving tip usually indicates that you are satisfied with the service that the staff gave you. So, like for example, you ate in a restaurant and the waiter was very polite and serve you well, then after you check out or pay your bill, you will give that waiter a tip through handling it directly to him or just by leaving it on the table. You must also know that if you are visiting this country and eat in a restaurant in a large group or with your friends, the restaurant may already added the service charge to your bill upon check out. When that happens, it would then be the decision of the customer if they will still add a tip by giving them to the server or by the leaving on the table or not at all since they already paid for it through the service charge however, they must know that there will not be a problem if they would decide not to pay for it. A restaurant is not the only place where people give tips in United Kingdom but also any place where they receive help from someone.
