Poll: How much should you tip on a meal?

Your daily bite-sized ballot break.

WE CARRIED THE story today of an aspiring Australian rapper who was arrested by police when he avoided a €420 restaurant bill by running into the sea.

Now, we wouldn’t presume for a moment that any of readers would skip out on paying their dinner debt but we wondered how you feel about topping it off with a tip?

What’s an acceptable tip on a dinner in a restaurant (presuming service hasn’t already been included and there was nothing wrong with the food)?

Poll Results:

Around 10% give or take (13700)
Always depends on the service (7264)
I don't tip (1887)
12.5% or above (1423)
Below 10% (972)
