Default Explanation on GBP Notes in my original post

I mentioned to watch out for at times ₤ GBP note problem which we happened upon one trip.
example" a Bank of England ₤ GBP which is accepted all over the British Isles but Bank of Scotland ₤ GBP notes might not be accepted except in Scotland itself.)

See below
quote: THE BRITISH POUND STERLING

------------------------------------------------
" Scottish, Northern Irish, Channel Islands and Manx notes are sometimes rejected by shops when used in England. British shopkeepers can choose to reject any payment, even if it would be legal tender in that jurisdiction, because no debt exists when the offer of payment is made at the same time as the offer of goods or services. When settling a restaurant bill or other debt the laws of legal tender do apply, but usually any reasonable method of settling the debt (such as credit card or cheque) will be accepted."

Cheers
