  • Food & Drink

    Is it because we Hungerford folk are pretty demanding in the food and drink department? Is it because of many thousands of national and international visitors expect the widest variety and best of meals when they are here? Or is because Hungerford can boast fine food and drink for any pocket that makes it just a good place for residents and visitors alike to eat and drink.

    Our special food shops, our cafes, restaurants, pubs and hotels set high standards of quality and choice and competition keeps it that way.

    Then there our local food and drink producers – giving us some of the most glorious ingredients any home cook or professional chef could ask for.

    In this Food and Drink Channel, Hungerford Townsite will give all our eateries, ‘drinkeries’ and retailers an opportunity to tell us not only all the reasons we should be their customers but also to share their knowledge, tips, recipes, news and special events or offers. And as we have some very special chefs from take-away snacks and meals to very posh nosh indeed, their gust blogs should be every bit as interesting and exciting as their food!
