General queriesWhat is your policy on tips?
The system used by Jamie's Italian is very fair and fully compliant. In line with the Jamie's Italian values, we never interfere in the distribution of tips left by customers for our employees. All cash tips stay with the waiter. Waiters also receive their individual credit card tips and service charge. From these credit card tips and service charge, each waiter contributes the amount equal to 2% of their net sales from that shift. This contribution is distributed between kitchen, bar and door staff to ensure they also benefit financially. If the 2% is not generated, we never top up using hourly pay or cash tips. The system used to distribute the 2% contribution is operated wholly independently of the company by staff members at each restaurant who have been elected as tronc masters. It is they who decide how the money is distributed and 100% goes to our incredibly hard working team who deserve to be rewarded. No admin charges are deducted at any stage by the company.Your online booking system is showing the restaurant is fully booked for when I want to come in. Can I go on a waiting list?
Although all the tables available online can be fully booked, we still keep a number of tables available for people walking into the restaurant. While we cannot guarantee their availability or the waiting time, please do come along!I want to make a booking for a large party of people. What do I need to do? Do you do a set menu for groups?
For groups larger than 16 please use the online booking form and your request will be handled directly by the restaurant.

How do I get a table for the opening night party?
We put a lot of effort into training our staff and testing every dish before we open a new restaurant to the public. Once we are confident that the team is ready to deliver the best service and our food reaches the highest standards, we open the doors for "business as usual"? rather than hosting a party.I have young children and want to bring them for lunch. Do you have a kids' menu?
You’ll find the kids’ menu here on the menu page. We welcome children in all our restaurants and Jamie’s put together some great dishes for them. There are also high chairs for smaller children, plus colouring sheets, crayons and lots to look at to keep them entertained.Do you support charities and local organisations?
Our nominated charity is Jamie Oliver’s Better Food Foundation and they receive the majority of our support. Wherever possible we do support local charitable events that we feel are relevant to our business and local community. Regrettably we are unable to support every charity that asks for our help. You can learn more about the Better Food Foundation at www.jamieoliver.com/foundationDo you have disabled access at your restaurants?
All our restaurants have facilities to ensure that we can look after disabled guests in a safe and considerate way. Please contact the restaurant directly if you wish to discuss any specific requirements before your visit and we will do our best to accommodate you.WHAT IS OUR POLICY ON THE LIVING WAGE?
