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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
