If you are sick and tired of waiting for bills to arrive in restaurants, a new app could save you a lot of time and stress.

Barclaycard is to trial a Dine & Dash system at high street chain Prezzo which will enable diners to pay automatically and walk out. 

Research shows one in 20 diners admits walking out of a restaurant without paying because of the long wait to receive the bill, and so this is to cut out the middleman. 

The system will give diners the chance to check in when they enter the restaurant via the Barclaycard self-service portal on their table. They will then be able to pay immediately once they are finished and leave. 

There is even an option to add a tip using DipJar, a contactless way to tip staff for their service and to split the bill with someone else at the table. 

Barclaycard and Prezzo will be holding a trial evening in central London on March 13 and you can sign up now.

If you are successful you will be eligible for a free meal worth £20 including drinks. It is on a first-come-first-serve basis so use the link to sign up.

Nick Kerigan, managing director of future payments at Barclaycard, said: “Building on our experience in ‘invisible payments’, we wanted to create an innovative solution that removes any barriers to enjoying the meal, whilst also helping restaurants deliver great service and keep those diners coming back."
