About Boars Head

Welcome to the Boars Head, a 16th century building located in the heart of Hoghton, Lancashire, close to both Preston and Blackburn. We’re a local village pub, situated just a few minutes away from Hoghton Tower, offering a warm welcome with exceptional, friendly service and hearty, locally produced and seasonal food.

Along with its heritage and beautiful timber interior, the Boars Head has timeless appeal and is believed to be one of the final overnight stops of the famous Pendle witches in 1612, before their eventual trials and sentencing at Lancaster.

Establishment was lovely, clean and beautiful. The food was great, starters were tasty and we all opted for the roast for main, this was particular good. Jam roly polys for desert were on the small side, the large plates they were served in dwarfed them and in general service could have been better during the visit. For instance certain requests weren’t followed up and if we wanted a drink we had to go to the bar to order it, although at times there was quite a number of staff behind the bar chatting. Overall great food and nice pub, just needed to be a bit more attentive.

Wonderful meal as usual, service was excellent. Food was incredible, in particular the Lamb was cooked to perfection. Everyone couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful.

Enjoyed a birthday celebration lunch, food was fabulous, a varied choice given. Lovely clean surroundings and tastefully decorated. Only thing lacking was the meet & greet from the 2 people who seemed to be in charge, although the older lady who served us was lovely and friendly.

When asking for 125ml wine ( which I got) when we asked for the billI I was charged for 175ml. When questioned he just said that's what we have to charge. I have never ever had a restaurant do that as I often ask for a 125ml and get priced accordingly. Also to improve the food I would prefer more vegetables with the mains instead of the token carrot and broccoli. This would make the meal a healthier balance plate.
