Burger and chips on a plate, with knife and fork.
Is wimpy still a thing?
bender is a sausage.
Had 'white sauce' on my chips thinking it was mayonnaise. It was not...
Never ate a Wimpy in my life.
it's ALMOST a reason to go there.
What if it is more than 20%?
What if I don't know the VAT implications of shitty chain restaurants?
We would have been sprung and I might have been arrested in front of my family.
I'd imagine it's just on them to ask you, so they know if to charge VAT or not, and then honestly don't give a bollocks? rly can't imagine them actually throwing you out for this...
I went to a place the other day: you could either fill a box with food to take away, that was charged by weight, or eat as much as you liked there for £6.50. Put some food in a box, came to over a tenner. (I'm no greedy fuck, I think I'd just underestimated how dense their mash was.)
Generously, they let me take up a table and sit there eating out of the box for the £6.50. Don't see how that makes any sense at all.
you know how to live, lyserge.
Takeaway mash was the stuff of dreams when I was a kid. I can't help it if I'm caught up in the delights of the modern world.
as it is less tax, rather than making you pay more to eat in? McDonalds used to be cheaper to eat out for this reason, until they decided to "simplify it" by charging everyone the higher amount.
i like places that charge you less if you take it away though. that's a pretty sweet deal
"I will give you 25p if you don't eat this roll around me or in my shop"
for having you sit in, use crockery, provide a place to sit that they have to then clear up, plus do your washing up, and pay a fuck load more rent and rates to have the space to even have tables at all.
Yep, that should be free.
and when you factor in buying paper plates, boxes, bags, cups and the like that all adds up too, so if it wasn't for tax they should be the same.
A takeaway counter is definitely the same size as a restaurant.
aren't really what's being discussed here are they? Like, most people accept that if you go and pick up an indian it'll be cheaper than a delivery or eating in. I took this more to be about cafes or more fast food places. The other thing is, if you have more space, you'll more than likely get more business.
then they don't have the option to eat in, so are therefore not really part of this discussion - the one about the same place charging different amounts for to stay or go.
why aren't all restaurants 150,000 ft2?
