Visited Tuttons for the first time today. The food was good, the service was OK, the wine was expensive and indifferent, but what really got me cross was that when the bill arrived, it had a 'recommended' 12.5% tip on it. To make matters worse, when my credit card was swiped, the 12.5% was automatically added to the bill.
I have no objection to tipping when I feel that the service deserves it, but I object strongy to be TOLD what to tip and then having it added to my bill without my prior consent. Had I not been entertaining guests, I would have made more of a complaint. As it was, I mentioned it to the waitress, who merely looked bemused.
I won't be eating their again unless this s
