R v McDavitt [1981] Crim LR 843
 
The defendant refused to pay his bill in a restaurant after having an argument with the manager. He tried to walk out of the restaurant but the manager told him the police had been called and told him to stay. He remained in the restaurant until the police arrived and he was charged with making off without payment.

Held:

He had not left the restaurant and therefore had not 'made off'.
