Here in the US it is customary for your waiter to clear away your plates after you've eaten, then ask if you would like dessert,coffee, etc. Then leave the check on your table saying "I can take care of that for you whenever you're ready". In Italy we found the waiter would wait for us to request the bill before he would bring it. How is this usually done in Scotland? Is it the same in pubs if you've had table service?
