Terms and Conditions

Introduction
This restaurant table booking service (the “Service”) is operated by Bookatable Limited, (a wholly owned subsidiary of Livebookings Holdings Ltd) and is referred to in this Agreement as “Bookatable,” “we”, “us” or “our”. Bookatable is registered in England and Wales under company number 5398578 and our registered address is at 5th Floor, Elizabeth House, 39 York Road, London, SE1 7NQ. Our VAT Number is 176387467.

These are the terms and conditions which will govern your use of the Service, which is provided to you by Bookatable on behalf of restaurants in the Bookatable Network, either via the website of the restaurant with whom you are booking a table (a “Restaurant”) or via the website of one of our third party booking partners (a “Booking Partner”).

By using the Service you are deemed to have accepted these terms and conditions of use (the “User Terms”).

Your Booking

Please note that the dining services for which you book via your use of the Service are provided to you by the Restaurant directly and not by Bookatable. Therefore by using the Service to book a table at your chosen Restaurant you are entering into a direct contract with that Restaurant and Bookatable is not a party to that contract. 

In order to make any booking using our Service you must have the legal capacity to do so and you must accept financial responsibility for all transactions made under your name. You must make sure that all the information you provide to us is true and accurate. Booking a table at the Restaurant means you have to pay the Restaurant after you have eaten unless it is clearly indicated before you book that you have to prepay in advance.

When you use the Service to place a booking at the Restaurant you are making an offer to the Restaurant to accept your booking. Your booking is not complete and legally binding on the Restaurant until such time as you have received a confirmatory email from the Restaurant accepting your booking. 

If you wish to cancel your booking you can use the hypertext link in the confirmation email or contact the Restaurant directly. Contact details can be found in the confirmation email. Please ensure that you arrive in plenty of time and bring a copy of your email booking confirmation. If you have prepaid in advance please also bring the credit/debit card you used to make the booking. 

Some restaurants levy a "no-show" fee for failure to attend the Restaurant at the reserved time. If the Restaurant operates such a policy you will be asked by us, when using the Service, for your credit card details. We will securely store those details. The decision whether to debit your card with a cancellation fee or "no-show" fee is entirely at the discretion of the Restaurant and we will only action that fee if instructed to do so by the Restaurant. If you believe that a no-show fee has been incorrectly deducted you should contact us (see below). On receipt of all relevant information from you we will take up the matter with the Restaurant and facilitate a refund if the Restaurant has not followed its stated terms and conditions at the time of booking.

Some restaurants levy a "pre-payment" for some or all of the expected dining costs. If the Restaurant operates such a policy you will be asked by us, when using the Service, for your credit card details to enable such a pre-payment to be made. We will securely store those details. If you believe that the pre-payment has been incorrectly deducted you should contact us (see below). On receipt of all relevant information from you we will take up the matter with the Restaurant and facilitate a refund if the Restaurant has not followed its stated terms and conditions at the time of booking.

Some restaurants offer/accept prepaid Vouchers for some or all of the expected dining costs. If you are making a booking with such a prepaid voucher you will be asked by us, when using the Service, for your unique Voucher identification number at the time of booking. Once the unique voucher identification number is input and validated, and the booking is confirmed, the booking is then subject to the cancellation policies of the Restaurant. It is not possible to change this booking unless the Restaurant agrees to the change. Where a date cannot be altered by a restaurant it will not be possible to issue a refund. In the unlikely event that the Restaurant needs to cancel the booking after you have booked a date, they will contact you.

We reserve the right to cancel a booking, but this of course will be without any liability to you. We have, at any time for any reason without prior notification to you, the right to terminate or restrict, suspend or terminate your access to any or all of the Service if we believe that you are misusing the Service or if you are in breach of these User Terms. 

Because your contract is directly with the Restaurant any queries or concerns that you may have in connection with your restaurant table booking should be addressed directly to the Restaurant via the details set out in the confirmatory email.

We reserve the right to disable your access to our Service and, where applicable, any user ID or password issued to you at any time if, in our opinion, you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of this Agreement.
