Blumenthal buys local pub

Three-Michelin-starred chef Heston Blumenthal has bought a pub in the same Berkshire village as his Fat Duck restaurant.

Blumenthal: plans refurb
The Hinds Head is located in the centre of the village, just a few doors along from the restaurant. Its sale price "vastly exceeded" the initial guide price of about £300,000, said agents AG&G. Blumenthal is planning to refurbish the building. He intends to operate the two businesses "very separately". The Hinds Head was previously owned by pub group Greene King.
