Those of you on Twitter may have seen Conor Pope asking this question:
Restaurants charging for ketchup, butter and jam and stuff – is it okay? A big prize for anyone with outrageous examples of the practice.
In my experience, it tends to be cafes and takeaways that charge extra for this kind of stuff. And it is very much not okay. Particular offenders are those self-service cafes where you throw some butter onto your tray at the last minute and get charged an extra 20c. I never eat in those places (because they tend to be a bit crap) so don’t run into this practice too often. How about you? Tell us your examples here or nip across to Pricewatch to comment there.
