Waiting staff are Britain's most tipped profession



Waiters and waitress are the most frequently tipped workers ahead of hairdressers and taxi drivers, according to a survey by British marketplace OnBuy.com

The survey of 2,000 Brits found that 88% tip waiting staff at a restaurant with almost two-thirds doing so (61%) because “that is just how things are done”. A further 24% said they only tip because they feel a “social pressure” to do so, and would feel ashamed not to. 


In fact, 21% of Brits would still tip at a restaurant even if they received mediocre service due to the social stigma attached to not tipping, while 32% of restaurant-goers would feel too embarrassed to ask for the service charge to be removed from a bill, despite bad service.


Half of respondents said they tip their takeaway delivery drivers whilst Uber drivers were revealed as the least tipped profession.
