In a traditional English pub, you do not tip the barkeep. Not “it’s optional” but it’s actually a faux pas. Things are a little different in the chain gastropubs that most Americans think are restaurants, in part because they fill the same basic ecological niche as T.G.I. Friday’s. (Pro tip. They are not restaurants and have a different ordering etiquette).
