Support Your Local Pubs

Pubs and breweries are a crucial part of British communities. Yet, even though they are a vital cornerstone of our social lives, many pubs have been on the brink of collapse for some time. Unfortunately, the global COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated such pressure.

That's why Long Live The Local is here to support the great pubs and breweries that are integral to our lives by pressing to reform three taxes:

🍺 An extension in the current lower level of VAT for food and beverages sold in pubs with a view to making this permanent
🍺 An overall reduction in beer duty and alcohol duty reforms that support British pubs and beer as a lower strength product
🍺 Lower business rates for pubs equitable to other similar businesses

Reforming these taxes will help give pubs a bit more breathing space financially, allowing them to remain open and flourish for you, their valuable customer. Read more about the reasons for reform.

Sign the petition to cut beer and pub tax and protect the pubs you love.
