Service Charge

We charge a totally voluntary 10% service charge, which is clearly outlined in the bill. This allows our staff to benefit fully from any tip given. Any service amount paid is 100% optional and at the customer’s discretion. In 2015 we introduced a TRONC system across the whole of the Koh Group. This is a separate organised pay arrangement through HMRC to distribute gratuities and tips fairly and evenly to all our staff. We would like to stress that Koh only charges the TRONC system with the statutory taxes levied by HMRC, the fees that we are charged to process the transactions for each individual employee and cost of the TRONC system itself – the TRONC committee then decide how this money is allocated amongst all staff. All staff are trained to point out our optional service charge when the bill is presented.

Allergy Disclaimer

Dishes are prepared in areas where allergenic ingredients are present and may contain traces. We cannot guarantee that all of our dishes are 100% free from these ingredients. Please alert your server of any allergies and we will do our utmost to cater for your requirements. All dishes are marked clearly where we are able to offer vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options & where they contain nuts.

Although our gluten-free and low gluten menu dishes are made and cooked using dedicated kitchen utensils and trays, they are prepared in the same facility and ovens as all our other dishes. We also work very closely with our suppliers to ensure that our ingredients are prepared in a gluten-free environment. Whilst we take every greatest care, we cannot guarantee that there are no trace amounts of gluten found in our gluten-free dishes. Please consider this when ordering from our menu.
