I think we’re all pleased that the pandemic phase of Covid seems to be coming to an end and we can begin moving back towards some semblance of previous normality.
There are, however, unfortunate consequences coming in its wake. To recoup its economic support, taxes from the Government will be increasing. The economic sanctions against Russia will also have an effect on our economy, especially on the price of oil and gas.
These factors are impacting costs across all sectors of our economy and it is for this reason that we will – regretfully – be increasing our prices from 1 April 2022. This will be our first price increase in over three years
As you can imagine, a rise in the price of energy will have a significant direct effect on our costs, along with all the price rises from other sectors such as our food suppliers and wine and spirit merchants.
We will be holding our price increases to the minimum amount to cover our increased costs and will not be using this as a cover to increase our margins. Throughout our 36 years of serving the local community, we have always valued the support of our customers and would not wish to endanger that.
We thank you and hope we will enjoy your continued support.
