Tipping Policy

All customer cash tips and service charges are kept by restaurant employees in full.

All tips and service charge payments collected by the company, whether by credit card, debit card, or payment via our digital platforms (collectively referred to as “tronc”) are distributed in full to our employees without deduction.

All employees have an opportunity to vote anonymously on how they wish tronc to be distributed in their brand. Any tronc payment is paid in addition to National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage. We do not charge any administration fees or make any other company deductions.

Any tips paid in cash are retained by the individual waiter and do not form part of the tronc. It is the responsibility of those receiving cash tips to declare the income for tax purposes to HM Revenue & Customs. The company does not participate in any aspect of cash tips.

The Big Table Group Limited is fully compliant with the Employment (Allocation of Tips) Act 2023. A copy of the Tronc Policy and current distribution rules is made available to all employees on their first day of employment. This is reviewed on an annual basis.

Our employees also benefit from 50% Employee Discount across all The Big Table Group Brands on food and drink, Team Meals whilst on duty, savings on 100's of retailers and activities through our Employee Advantages Scheme, along with numerous incentives for our teams to get involved in.
