Restaurant business is the provision of services. Their quality is regulated by certain legislative acts, the main one being the Law on the Delivery of Goods and the Provision of Services of 1982. This document requires that any service in England, Wales and Ireland be provided professionally and in good faith, within reasonable time and without involving consumers in unjustified expenses. Despite this, for ordinary residents of London, prices for restaurant dishes are often unattainable. Here are few ways of having a dinner with profit.
Book a table online. There are sites where you can track restaurant offers and make a reservation online. Internet service OpenTable offers information about all types of establishments, from local pizza restaurants to restaurants marked by the Michelin star. On the home page, enter the date, time, and city, and then click on offers. Then you can set the filter: for example, "50% discount" or "complex menu for £20". Lastminute.com - this is a 50% discount and a comprehensive menu, the price of which does not exceed £20. On the site 5pm.co.uk you can find advantageous offers, which mainly concern the complex menu and 20% discounts.
Save with Tesco Clubcard. Use Tesco Clubcard points to pay in restaurants. This is extremely beneficial, because you only have to pay a quarter of the total cost. The card is valid for restaurants Cafe Rouge, Bella Italia, Chimichanga and many others.
Or with TasteCard. With TasteCard you will receive a discount of 50% or you can pay for two meals at the price of one. The card operates in more than 7,000 restaurants throughout the UK, including Strada, La Tasca, Zizzi and many others. If you like gathering in big companies, TasteCard is exactly what you need!
Come with your drink. If you want to drink a bottle of port at dinner, bring it with you. Restaurants often inflate the price of booze to earn. For example, a bottle of Louis Jadot Bourgogne Chardonnay, indicated in the wine list, usually costs £20, and in the Tesco supermarket you can buy it for only £12.
Track special offers of Michelin restaurants. Always dreamed of trying dishes marked with one of the most famous ratings? Then order for lunch foie gras or ravioli from lobster. Just do not order them for dinner - it will cost you more. For example, a three-course dinner at the Alain Ducasse restaurant costs £90, but lunch is £60. £30 - not a bad saving. And there are a lot of such special offers. You can find out about them on the restaurants' websites.
Cook at home. Restaurant food is too expensive, and you can prepare delicious meals at home. For example, if you are a real curry fan, please yourself with Indian delicacies for just £5.
