We feel it’s the right time to remove ourselves from a broken system. After the much needed shake-up our industry received from the pandemic, we have decided to pay our team a full salary, not one which fluctuates uncontrollably. This means our team knows exactly what they receive every month, making it easier to plan, budget and enjoy their lives.
On top of this, we have added in an 'APRICIation' discretionary amount of 5% to the bill, as all of the team go over and above to ensure a memorable experience for our guests. ll of these funds go directly to everyone who is working in the business, from our kitchen porters, to our chefs and servers. Please note that the amount is at your discretion, so if you do not feel comfortable with this it can be left unpaid.
It’s one more step we’re taking towards hospitality being seen as the valued career that it deserves to be. We also believe in paying fair salaries, so we pay above the London Living Wage. Get in touch
