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.
An all round enjoyable experience
Lovely food, just the right amount.
The Sunday roast sharing platter was great. Shared between 3 adults and a 4 year old, but would be ample food for 4 adults. Service was great and very friendly.
Great food, drink & atmosphere & always very friendly, polite & efficient service at vey reasonable prices. Thank-you!
As always fantastic food and great service from the friendly staff we always recommend the boars head great choice and cooked to perfection
Excellent meal in pleasant surroundings. The only thing that stopped it being 5 stars is that the tables are quite close together so feels a little cramped.
We went for Sunday lunch and were very happy with the food and atmosphere. However the serving staff though friendly enough were clearly inexperienced e.g. they had to come back to check our (very simple) order, we weren't offered condiments, no serving cutlery was brought with the side dishes, empty glasses weren't cleared away despite us having very little room on our table, we also had to wait a while to pay by card because it transpired the waitress didn't know how to use the card machine so just left us sitting there rather than finding someone to help her. All minor things in themselves but cumulatively it made the service seem disorganised. We still left a tip as the staff had clearly tried their best - hopefully they'll have been better trained by the time we visit again.
Friendly efficient service and consistently good food
Very enjoyable Sunday Roast Dinner.
As always fantastic service and great customer service food was delicious and staff so friendly would recommend to everyone
We come here regularly, always have a lovely time and always look forward to coming back.
New to the area and we both had excellent meals certainly we be coming back to try more off the menu. Thanks
The Boar's Head Sunday roast must be the most consistently good meal you can get in this area. Our last visit was the fourth in so many week s and it was as delicious as ever, served by pleasant and efficient staff in comfortable surroundings.
The food was delicious, the duck I had was beautifully tender & cooked just right. The lemon cheesecake was a delight. Staff were helpful and attentive.
Absolutely love The Boars Head! Best Sunday roast ever... Would highly recommend. My favourite place to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Excellent food and decor a little slow when delivering the bill.
Always have a positive dining experience when we visit. The Boars Head is our go to when friends and family are visiting.
We have eaten here as a family four times now and we have never been disappointed.
Excellent meal, great service, lovely gastropub all round !
We recently had another lovely Sunday lunch at the Boar's Head and brought three guests who'd not dined there for many years. Like us, their verdict was "excellent." Good food, pleasant atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff, what is there not to like. As one of our guests simply said as they finished their main course with great reverence "that beef was so delicious". Nothing more to say really, except the puddings were all equally good and the gin and tonic superb!
Loved everything about it . Definitely be back 😁
Had a lovely late lunch, food was great pub grub and we will be back. Staff very friendly.
Lovely staff all served with a smile. Food was by far and away the best I have ever had anywhere. Brilliant
