Swans’ owner is in top 1,000

The Bulldog Hotel Group, which owns the historic Three Swans Hotel in Market Harborough, has been named as one of the London Stock Exchange’s 1,000 companies to Inspire Britain.

The group earlier this year announced plans to invest £20 million to double its estate by 2020 and was named in the independent stock exchange report, which identifies the fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium-sized enterprises in the UK.

The report, released last week, comprised 1,000 companies which have shown consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers.

The group has recently embarked on an £800,000 revamp of the 16th century Three Swans, in High Street, with anew all-day eatery expected to open soon. It bought the hotel last June.
