United Kingdom has a certain rule to follow when it comes to tipping and that is the standard rule. However, in this country, you only tip if you are happy with the service that the certain company 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. There would not be a problem if the customer decides not to add the tip because basically, they have already paid 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.
