听力原文:Speaker: Good morning, everyone. Welcome to this presentation on restaurants

and food. Eating out in the UK is an international adventure—you

can find restaurants serving almost any kind of food you would like to try,

especially in the cities and larger towns. Popular options include Chinese, Indian,

Italian, Greek and Thai food. Traditional British food is also available, Q11

of course, and different regions have their own specialities. Many pubs also

serve excellent food. With all these choices, the hardest thing about eating

out in the UK is deciding where to go. Here are three ways to find a restaurant:

ask friends or colleagues to recommend one; look in a national or local Q12

restaurant guide—available from bookstores, newsagents and at libraries;

look in the local Yellow Pages telephone directory under "restaurants".

Most restaurants display their menu outside so that you can check what

they have to offer—and their prices—before you go in. Prices vary widely

from one restaurant to another, so do look first. Opening hours vary. Most Q13

restaurants are open from about 11:00 or 11:30 a.m.—for lunch—through to

about 9 or 10 o'clock in the evenings. Some may open for a couple of hours

for lunch, then close for a while and reopen at about 5 or 6 p.m. for dinner.

Some may open for dinner only. Some pubs have permits to open 24 hours

a day and many of these serve food 24 hours a day too. On Sundays, some

restaurants may close early, and smaller ones may not open at all, but most

restaurants are open 7 days a week.

Tipping and service charges at restaurants in the UK can be confusing

even for us Brits! When you pay your restaurant bill in the UK, tipping—leaving Q14

extra money for good service—is optional. However, most

people do leave a tip, unless they were very unhappy with the service. The

usual amount is about 10 to 15 per cent of the total cost of the bill. Some restaurants

will add a "service charge", which is basically a tip, on to your bill

automatically. If you think the service was poor, you do not have to pay this

charge. In pubs, people usually only leave a tip if they receive service at their

tables. If you are in a pub where you must go to the bar to order food, it is Q15

not usual to leave a tip.

Takeaway food is very common in Britain. "Takeaway" food is cooked

food that you buy from the restaurant and take away to eat somewhere else.

The most popular kinds include hamburgers, pizzas, kebabs, Indian meals,

Chinese meals, and fish and chips. Takeaway food is cheaper than eating

the same food in the restaurant. If you do not want to go out to pick up your

takeaway, you can let your takeaway come to you, since many restaurants

offer a delivery service. You telephone in your order from home, and the

restaurant delivers the food to your door. Some restaurants charge extra for Q16

delivery—check when you place your order. It usually depends on how far

away you are from the restaurant.

Pubs and bars are an important part of social life in the UK. Most of

them have an informal, comfortable atmosphere, and going to the pub is an Q17

easy way to get together with friends. Beer is the most popular drink in pubs.

There are two main kinds: lager is light in colour and bubbly or fizzy, where-

as bitter is darker and heavier-tasting, and not very fizzy. Pubs also serve red

and white wine, other kinds of alcohol, like gin, whisky, vodka and cocktails,

and a range of non-alcoholic drinks, including mineral water, fruit juices,

fizzy drinks—colas, soda water, etc.—and tea and coffee. As I mentioned

before, many pubs serv
