Adrian Carolea was beaming from ear-to-ear as we interviewed him about his success at the Coaching Inn awards, where he was presented with “Head Chef of the year” at the 2018 ceremony.

He commented on his immense pride at receiving the recognition from his company and the tough competition from the other 13 locations that took part. He had been working at The Three Swans for some years before it was taken over by The Coaching Inn group and says the business has gone from strength to strength since the transition “When a company takes time to invest in the business and its employees, they expect the highest standards”.

He also gave his wholehearted thanks to his team “You are only a good coach if you have the support of your players, without the players, you are not much of a coach”

Adrian has been living in Hungerford for the past 13 years with his wife and family and talks of his love for the place and the people who make up the community here. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family, football and keeping up with current affairs.
