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 family birthday and another delicious Sunday roast at the Boars Head. Must be the most consistently delicious meal in the county, and for a very reasonable price. Good food, friendly and efficient serving staff and pleasant surroundings...why go anywhere else!

The food was lovely and the staff very friendly. It is probably 18 months since we last dined at the Boars Head and the refurbishment is very impressive. However, whilst we don’t want to be rushed, to say it was a Tuesday night with hardly any diners in, service was very slow. Also, we felt that there could be a wider choice on the menu.

We have been coming to the boars head for a few years now and the food is always excellent... however over the last couple of years we have noticed the prices going up and up to the point where we now feel it’s not really value for money. £14 for fish and chips or pie and chips is expensive... the new hall tavern for example, has equally good versions of both ( minus the peas being served in a fancy pan )for a good deal cheaper . I reiterate the food quality and service are excellent I just feel it’s not worth what you’re asking for these days

Hi we came as a family of 4 adults 3 kids and a baby The food was good overall especially the special starters. I had a porn star martini which to be quite honest was atrocious and not as described but I didn’t want to complain as we were celebrating. It did not have the passion fruit fruit in it it didn’t look like it should and tasted dire as if no alcohol. These aren’t cheap and it was a treat. I stuck to bottled drinks after this. The waitress had to check the order three times. Some other bits were wrong but we do like the place and will return. We spent £170 and would have expected a bit better. I’ve had better before in the same place so consistency is lacking.

A great time as ever, good food and atmosphere. They were busy and a bit stretched on a Sunday afternoon, but can't have any complaints!

A very relaxing and comfortable atmosphere with the food being sumptuous & delicious. However the nibbles namely the olives & bread came with the starters, would of preferred the nibbles to come before the starters (maybe should of mentioned this beforehand). Nevertheless gave 5 star rating as the staff were exemplary.
