News from Hungerford High Street – August 2017

News from the independent shops and salons on the High Street – and good news that the Three Swans is re-opening while it’s still warm enough to enjoy their outdoor street seating.

Three Swans Hotel

Three Swans Hungerford

The iconic Three Swans Hotel in Hungerford is set to reopen at 9am on Friday 11 August, following major refurbishment works that have seen the 18th-century coaching inn receive a total overhaul of its restaurant, bar and accommodation.

The Coaching Inn Group purchased the historic inn early in September 2016 and closed the doors in May 2017 ready for work to begin. The new Three Swans Hotel will include the group’s popular Eatery & Coffee House concept, as well as a brand new outside area, with a traditional stone baked pizza oven.

“The Three Swans is a much loved local landmark which needed some renovation to make it the family-friendly, relaxed, all-day dining venue that we envisaged and felt that the town needed,” explains General Manager, Mark Tulett. “The last nine weeks have seen major works conducted to the property to breathe new life into this historic coaching Inn, whilst staying faithful to its 18th-Century architecture. We are very excited to be introducing the Eatery & Coffee House concept, which will see the addition of locally-sourced produce and contemporary twists on traditional favourites as well as a popular grazing and sharing menu.”

The Naked Grape Wine Merchants

Fancy a glass of Fizz? The first two wines that invariably come to mind are Prosecco and Champagne but Simon from The Naked Grape reveals that in between the gulf of prices and styles is a wine that not many discover. The French call these wines Crémant. They are wines that are made in the style and method of Champagne but, as they don’t originate from the Champagne region, they cannot use the name itself.

Crémant wines are grown across France and once you’ve got past the first step of trying something different, you will soon find yourself searching for different Crémant wines.

“My go-to bubbly,” Simon reveals, “is the Les Cordeliers Exclusive Crémant de Bordeaux. The story behind the wine is what hooked me in, and upon first tasting it I was delighted.”

For more details please call The Naked Grape on 01488 684 684.

Grade 1 Barbershop

A recent arrival to the High Street, Dom at the Grade 1 Barbershop offers a full range of men’s hairdressing styles from his premises at Number 13a. He’s open Monday to Saturday 9am to 5pm and appointments are not required. There are special rates for children and senior citizens.

“The place was very clean, well presented and modern,” Melanie from East Garston said, “but most satisfying of all was the excellent service and capability of the young man in there. He did such an excellent job on the boys’ hair. One is a student and so, often finds it hard to get a good quality cut where someone really cares and thinks about the way the individual wants his hair to be styled. The prices are very reasonable too and it is convenient to all the shops in the High Street.”
