All hours worked for C&J Limited will be put through our payroll system and paid into the bank details provided by yourself on your starter forms.


At C & J Limited we are grateful that our customers enjoy their experience and visit to us and generously leave behind an additional amount of money to our front of house team.

We work as a team, whether you be working on the bar, the restaurant, the kitchen, pot-wash or even as general maintenance. Everyones job is so important to this industry that we all deserve equal rights to the additional benefits; this is why as a company we pool all tips together in a jar over a monthly basis. The monthly basis for tips is the same as payroll; you will then receive your tips on payday worked out on an hourly basis.

For example if 100 hours are worked and £100 is received in tips this would work out as £1 per hour. If you have personally worked 20 hours over that month you will receive a sum of £20 into your tips box located in the glass wash room.

When tips are being collected it is important and only fair that all tips are pooled together; below are a few situations we have come across and I wanted to ensure they are put straight.

“When a customer says, this is for you and only you, we still pool the money, the Chef has cooked the meal, the shift before has polished your cutlery, the person on the bar has poured your drinks; we work as a team.”

“When a customer says take one for yourself, round this up to the next £1; never take more than £1, this allows more frequent take ones for yourself and therefore more tips in the long run. Again this money is to put into the tips pot.”

“Under no circumstances do we accept drinks off customers whilst working, if they are adamant on buying you a drink that’s fine they can either purchase one when you have finished for you to enjoy or you can take monetary value of unto £1 to be pooled into the tips collection”

Tips can be easily achieved by;

– Friendly Service, Saying Hello and Smiling at customers as they walk into the building

– Product Knowledge

– Fast and Efficient Service

– Dedication to your Customers

– Up Selling

– Correct Orders being received promptly

– Remembering returning customers and what their favourite drinks, meals etc are

– Asking if they want a jug of water at the table

– Laying tables correctly

– Presentation of Both Food, Drinks and Staff Appearances

– Not Being shown to be lazy, no standing on your phones or chatting to the same person for too long

– Remaining busy, people reward busy workers
