I wonder if this is related to the change in some table service restaurants - where instead of selecting a 'zone' there's a stack of numbered table markers by each self-service point, and you key in the number before you pay.
what's this now?
I should have taken a picture - there is a stack of plastic table marker on either side of each screen. Each marker had a number in the 3xx range. When you select 'Eat In', rather than being asked to set a 'Zone' you're instructed to take table marker and type in the number. I believe this number then becomes your order number, but I didn't Eat In so I don't know for sure. The takeaway orders were still in the 0xx range and sequential from what I could gather though.
When your food is delivered, the staff member lakes your table marker and puts it back next to one of the screens.
I saw this in Grantham last weekend, I don't know if it's standard or some sort of trial.
