Pub to cut prices for day

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

A Hinck­ley Pub is to cut the price of all food and drink for just one day.

On Thurs­day Septem­ber 13, The Baron of Hinck­ley on Re­gent Street, will be sup­port­ing a na­tional Tax Equity Day which will see the prices of their en­tire menu re­duced by 7.5 per cent.

The na­tional Tax Equity Day is aimed at high­light­ing the ben­e­fit of a VAT re­duc­tion in the hospi­tal­ity in­dus­try.

At present, all food and drink in pubs is sub­ject to 20 per cent VAT, com­pared to su­per­mar­kets which ben­e­fit from a zero VAT rate on all food.

Prices at the Weather­spoon pub will be marginally dif­fer­ent for one day, pro­vid­ing visi­tors with var­i­ous dis­counts like £0.75p off a £10 meal for ex­am­ple.

The pub’s man­ager, Suzanne Aitken, said: “We are proud to sup­port the cam­paign to re­duce the level of VAT within the pub in­dus­try.

“Cus­tomers com­ing to the pub on Thurs­day Septem­ber 13 will find the price of their food and drink is lower than nor­mal.

“We are keen to high­light the amount cus­tomers could save if VAT in pubs was low­ered per­ma­nently.

“A re­duc­tion in the level of VAT on a long-term ba­sis will gen­er­ate growth and cre­ate jobs in the im­por­tant leisure and hospi­tal­ity sec­tor and help the high street, of which pubs are an in­te­gral part.”

To catch the ex­clu­sive dis­count, head to The Baron of Hinck­ley on Thurs­day Septem­ber 13.
