3. We may update these Terms from time to time at our discretion for technical or legal reasons, or because the needs of our business have changed. Unless the change made to the Terms is a legal requirement, you are bound by the Terms in force at the time you first join LRG. You should therefore review these Terms before you renew your LRG membership.
Becoming a member
4. There are 3 membership levels, General, Club and Hotel. There is no fee for General membership, but fees are due for Club and Hotel.
5. You must be at least 18 years old to become a member. You can purchase membership online or by telephone. You can purchase an annual subscription or a monthly rolling subscription. The fees for each subscription are set out on our website and are subject to change at any time. If you have a monthly subscription we shall also notify you by email of any change to your monthly subscription fee. You can pay your subscription fee by debit or credit card.
6. If you have purchased an annual Club [or Hotel] subscription, we shall send you a welcome pack including a membership card to the address you provided on registration. You should receive your welcome pack within 5 working days of payment. If you do not receive your welcome pack within such time, please contact us within 30 days of payment to request a replacement. If you contact us more than 30 days after payment, we reserve the right to charge you a £12 reissue fee and your membership card will be reissued with the same original expiry date.
7. If you have purchased an annual or monthly Club [or annual Hotel] subscription we shall send you a welcome email with details of how to download your digital card. Your membership will start on or shortly after the date we receive your first subscription fee payment. Therefore, you should download your digital card as soon as possible to take full advantage of your membership. When you download your digital card, you should sign-in using the ID details that we provide to you. You are responsible for keeping your ID confidential and you are responsible for any activity under your account.
8. Unless you renew your Club [or Hotel] membership, your annual membership will expire on the date set out on your digital or plastic card, and your monthly membership will expire on the date set out on your digital card if you fail to pay a monthly subscription fee when due. You will then become a General member allowing full use of the LRG website and app including online booking and search facilities. Please note, that General membership does not include any membership benefits when dining at the restaurants.
Cancellation of your membership
9. You may cancel your Club [or Hotel] membership within 14 days of the first date of your membership and obtain a refund provided that you have not used your membership card (including your digital card). However, you agree that your Club [or Hotel] membership starts immediately. Therefore, we are entitled to deduct £10 from your refund of Club membership, or £25 from your refund of Hotel membership to cover the value of your membership up to the point that you cancel and in respect of the administration and postage costs of the membership card if you have an annual subscription.
10. You must return to us your Club [or Hotel] membership card and your Club [or Hotel] membership pack within 14 days of the date you notify us that you wish to cancel and we reserve the right to charge you any costs incurred by us in enforcing this obligation.
11. After the 14-day period set out in Condition 9, annual subscriptions are not refundable. You can cancel a monthly subscription on 1 month’s notice by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
12. You can cease to become a General member at any time by contacting us at email@example.com.
13. To exercise your right to cancel any membership, you should email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
14. Lost or stolen membership cards must be reported to us immediately at email@example.com. An administration charge of £12 may be incurred to provide a replacement card. We are unable to replace any vouchers contained in the welcome pack that are lost.
15. Club [or Hotel] Membership enables members to take advantage of offers, added value and/or benefits at participating restaurants. Members must check the LRG website before booking a restaurant to see the offers available at each restaurant, together with applicable exclusions. Benefits are generally not available on 14 February, Mother’s Day and 25, 26, 31 December.
16. You must mention your membership or digital card when booking by telephone at the participating restaurant, and you must show your membership card or digital card when you request the bill for reductions, or on arrival where the applicable offer is welcome drinks. Membership benefits will automatically be applied when booking online when you are logged in as a member though the LRG app or website. You will receive a confirmation email to advise you that benefits will be applied.
17. Your membership card cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer and only 1 membership card can be used per table.
18. Membership, and membership cards, are personal to the member and are therefore not transferable. This means that you cannot give or lend your card to another person to use.
