Great News. The Chancellor of the Exchequer has reduced the rate of VAT on hospitality from 20% to 5% enabling us to reduce our prices for the rest of this year. All savings are being passed onto the customer. The Briar Rose has received praise and commendations for the quality of the accommodation that we offer, at a competitive price. Today that price became even more attractive for our guests. The boat has definitley come in for our guests.
