I think brits would take a different attitude to the mini-bar and hotel bar if they had non-receipted daily allowances. Since then you would get your 60 pounds/day daily allowance tax free every day, so all expenses then directly cost you money out of your own pocket (admittedly the company put it in your pocket to start with).
So far in 12 years of 10-15 trips a year I have not visited a hotel bar or bought a single thing from a mini bar. Normally I keep about 70% of the daily allowance.
