Local Businesses



We are proud to live and work in Hungerford and have pleasure in showcasing some of our wonderful local businesses.

The Pheasant Inn

1st Direct Cars of Hungerford have had a long association with The Pheasant, and are proud to have worked with them for the last 12 years. We have seen owners come and owners go, however since this establishment was taken over by Jack Greenall in January 2016 it’s gone from strength to strength.




Bordering the village of Shefford Woodlands and overlooking Berkshire’s famed Valley of the Racehorse, the inn has a hospitality pedigree that stretches back 450 years, to when it first sheltered drovers herding livestock from Wales to London.

Today, the newly refurbished pub and its eleven en-suite guest rooms offer an adventurous drinks menu, flavoursome modern British cooking and luxurious accommodation with outstanding value and a warm, relaxed welcome.

When Jack Greenall became The Pheasant’s new landlord, he set about launching a new chapter for this well-loved local landmark.

Jack’s family has a passion for brewing and managing pubs and hotels that dates back to the 1750s and, having trained with the fastest-growing country pub group in the south of England, Jack was thrilled to launch his own inn-keeping career with a top-to-bottom restoration that both honours The Pheasant’s heritage and ushers in a new generation of epicurean pleasures.

A sensitive refurbishment has brought the bar and restaurant a new, relaxed elegance with rich colours, comfortable furnishings and atmospheric lighting. So whether you pull up a vintage leather bar stool, hunker down in the cosy snug with its quirky print gallery and bespoke selection of local and general interest books or join friends at a table in the main dining space, it’s a great place to sample our broad and imaginative drinks range and regularly changing menu, which showcases the freshest and best local produce and unfussy, flavoursome cooking.

Private Dinning @ The Pheasant

The new upstairs dining space has been beautifully designed by Octavia Dickinson and is now available for cocktails and canapés or a private dinner party. The room seats up to twenty people and includes a Sonos sound system and large flat screen TV with full Sky Sports package. If you would like to know more about how The Pheasant can tailor you a unique and memorable experience please contact Alex on info@thepheasant-inn.co.uk or on 01488 648 284 to start your enquiry.

“So whether it is an appointment at the Vets or Dog Groomers we can transport your dog safely and securely in a variety of sized cages.  If you want to accompany your dog whilst it is being transported, then you can do so, although unfortunately we can only carry one human passenger.”

1st Direct are happy to recommend WaggaWoof
