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.

Another enjoyable visit and we are happy to return again and again because of the consistent standard in the quality of food and service. The staff are attentive and cheerful, there is something for all tastes on the menu, the meals are served hot, really nicely presented and most importantly taste great! Best fish and chips bar none, the duck is succulent and tender, the pastry and filings of the pies delicious. We'll be back!

A lovely meal but it was a little quick. We were seated, orders taken and starters and main completed in under an hour. The waitresses were efficient! Would have appreciated some time between courses to really enjoy the lovely atmosphere.

Felt the starters were expensive for the quality and quality. 3 small pears of goats cheese for £6. Black pudding stack was excellent however.

On entering the BOARSHEAD, we were greated with a smile and shown to our prebooked table, we were allowed plenty of time to perouse the menu without being interrupted, the food when received was hot, tasty and a playful, will be going again soon, PS we have been several times in the past and enjoyed the food every time.
