The VAT question

What a year so far… we couldn’t have envisaged a situation like this in our lifetimes, and it’s taken much resolution, strong wills, creative thinking and leadership to find ways through for so many businesses, with the hospitality sector feeling the discomfort of COVID-19 incredibly severely.

So, when the government took the bold decision to introduce the VAT reduction, we – like the entire sector – took a deep breath and felt that the future was more certain.

We have been asked by a few guests recently about our position on this matter – as an independent family business – we have published an Open Letter below and invite you to read.

The Cove has been in our family for 3 generations and we know the passion and pride our family and team have to see us through this time and to better ones to come.
