Sorry, but that's utterly wrong. They absolutely do say that, and if
you wish to claim that although they do say that, what they say is
somehow invalid and inapplicable, then that would be a fairly
extraordinary claim that would require some fairly impressive proof.
CPR 37.2:

  (1) Where a defendant wishes to rely on a defence of tender before
  claim he must make a payment into court of the amount he says was
  (2) If the defendant does not make a payment in accordance with
  paragraph (1), the defence of tender before claim will not be
  available to him until he does so.
