Unless you keep the food warm for them to take-away, in which case you
charge VAT.

It's (probably) easiest to have per-item "is VAT-able".

I then have "VAT types" for each customer: UK & VAT-able, EU and
non-VAT-able, EU and VAT-able, rest of world and non-VAT-able.

This also lets me pull out the information to do the EC sales list and
VAT Return...
