Please make sure you read and understand the Privacy Policy before using this feature.
  • If you make a restaurant booking using the Website, then our Booking Terms and Conditions [http://www.bookatable.com/bookingtermsandconditions] will apply. Those Booking Terms and Conditions set out important information about your rights and obligations regarding restaurant bookings made using the Website, and form a binding legal agreement between us.
  • If you are a restaurant owner who wishes to list your restaurant on the Website, then our relationship with you will be subject to the Bookatable Restaurant Agreement (which will be made available to you separately) in addition to these Terms of Use.
  • Promotions or prize give-aways on the Website from time to time may be subject to their own specific terms and conditions. Please look out for details of those terms and conditions when entering such promotions.
