Eating out

From choosing a London restaurant to settling the bill. Here you will find all important tipps on how to best spend your after-conference hours.

It is customary to leave 10-15% of the bill as tip. However, restaurants often add a service charge (around 12 %), especially for larger groups, so it is worth checking your bill to not tip twice
