Pub to cut prices for day
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.
