Standard tipping is being followed in the country of United Kingdom. Most of the time, if you are happy or satisfied with what the service crew showed you, then you will give him or her a tip. 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. Service charges are at times added to the bill when there is a large number of group ate in that restaurant like for instance, there were six people in that group so, the restaurant might charge a service fee for that on top of the bill upon check out. If the customer decides to still give the server a tip aside from the service charge they paid, then it will just be fine. A restaurant is not the only place where people give tips in United Kingdom but also any place where they receive help from someone.

People would say that it is weird however, they must know that this situation is normal to them and hey have a good reason for it.
