Use Of The Online Booking Service (Bookatable)

Introduction

The restaurant table booking service (the "Service") used on this website is operated by Bookatable Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Livebookings Holdings Limited (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. The VAT Number is 176 3874 67.

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, contact the Restaurant directly, or online. 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.

Failure to attend the Restaurant at the reserved time may result in you being charged a "no-show" fee by the Restaurant. The decision whether to debit your card with a cancellation fee or "no-show" fee is entirely at the discretion of the Restaurant.

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.

Additional Terms

In addition to these User Terms, your use of a Restaurant or Booking Partner website and the other services and products provided by Restaurants and Booking Partners in the Bookatable Network, may also be subject to any additional terms and conditions applied by restaurants and/or Booking Partners from time to time. Those terms will be in addition to, and therefore not a replacement for, these User Terms. Please ensure that you read such additional terms and conditions before using the websites and/or purchasing the services and products provided by restaurants and Booking Partners.
