mippy: It's extremely common to tip in restaurants in Britain, but the servers will be paid a minimum wage if everything is legal. We tip taxi drivers and hairdressers (maybe manicurists too, I've never had one of those), it's getting more common in coffee shops and the like, but tipping barstaff is unusual.
Maybe it#s a class thing - I'm from a fairly working-class background and people waiting on me still feels a bit weird (and I can't fathom people who are rude to waitstaff, or pretend they don't exist - really puts me off a person).
