The Swan

A very nice surprise to be taken out for a birthday treat to The Swan in Pangbourne.  A lovely walk in the crisp cold air, past the station nestled right along the river which I can imagine would be a wonderful view in the summer months.

Inside was very warm and welcoming and we had a lovely dinner, I had the steak which was cooked to perfection, and my husband enjoyed the flat iron chicken which he too thoroughly enjoyed.  The service was professional and efficient and they too are running a special Monday – Wednesday til November, for 30% off all main meals which was a nice surprise for a week dinner out.


Finn Hair & Beauty

The beautiful Pangbourne village has a lot to offer of various amenities, and is definitely not short of hair dressers and barbers!  Along the high street you can find Foresters or Finn Hair.  I decided to try out Finn hair and beauty as I was desperately in need of a cut and blow way.

From the initial call to make the appointment up until I left I was treated with the most incredible welcoming service!  The reception lady was so welcoming, taking my coat, explaining who my stylist was and surprising me with a further discount of 20% til the end of October! Such a Great surprise!

My stylist was really knowledgeable and ensured she completely understood what style I was after and ended with a perfect cut,  A wonderful cuppa coffee was offered and the overall experience was truly magnificent.  I have been to many hair stylists in the past but this by far was one of my favourite experiences and I can highly recommend them!

Cozze Restaurant Pangbourne

New Italian opened in Pangbourne


A little bit of excitement surrounding the new opening of the Cozze Italian restaurant last month.  Beautifully decorated with a very relaxed yet contemporary and classy feel to it.  Lovely open windows and lots of space inside so no need to feel squashed.

Went out to both support the new business and treat my brother who was visiting from abroad after a longs day site seeing in Reading.  We were politely and quickly greeted from the moment we entered and the service was definitely attentive and great.  Having taken our 2 small children with too, we were given some colouring activities as well as crayons to keep them busy so this was very well appreciated.

The food was fresh and well presented.  We went for the set menu, burgers and pizza for the kids of which all was really enjoyable.  Definitely a great day out.
