Grabbed a bite to eat at the Spyglass this evening after work.
What with all this publicity recently about restaurants adding service charges to our bills and then using it pay their staffs’ basic crappy wages, we thought we’d check with the waitress that the charge from this wannabe “Bristol institution” went directly to staff on top of their wages.
“Er, no,” eventually came an embarrassed reply from the waitress.
We told her to deduct their 10% management scam service charge from the bill and gave her a fiver when we left.
What a bunch of fucking con artists.
