Even if it's called a tip, if it`s stated as required on the menu it`s simply part of the price and needs to be paid. That being said, false imprisonment is still illegal.

Breach of contract? Dunno matter of law, but there is definitely a civil/criminal case of false imprisonment.

I have a job in which I work in a freezer for 12 from 6pm to 6am and I'm 21. If I do a good service should I get more? Why don`t retail workers get ti[s for going to the stock to see if there is stock of a pair of shoes etc? If you get pissed off about not getting a tip then you`re pretty much a lazy arse hat who has no motivation to work, especially considering other people have much harder jobs.

"Oh no that one person didn`t tip me so now I hate their guts blah blah blah! But all other 50 people I served that night did tip me giving me roughly an additional £100" Boohoo.

You`re supposed to be doing a good job anyway.

I worked as a bartender and server ages ago, and they also had a policy of adding the tip to large parties, but, a manager would always make a point of visiting the table before the bill was presented, and there were complaints, we couldn't addd the tip. That`s how it should be done, folks.
