Few things are more comforting than the classic British pub, especially those as rustic and heartwarming as The Hinds Head in the heart of Lancashire. Many things make this place great – the homely decor and genuine warm welcome being just the beginning – but once a well-stocked bar and a menu made up of exceptional British cuisine are thrown in too, well, the pedigree of The Hinds Head is clear to see. Set on Preston Road of Charnock Richard in Chorley, this pub and restaurant is stooped in history and makes for a satisfying and refreshing visit every single time.

The Hinds Head is one of those rustic British pub and restaurants that you never want to leave because everything you need for the most relaxing of times is right there. On Preston Road in Chorley, here is what pubbing is all about: a proper bar, a proper ambience and a kitchen preparing some truly marvellous plates of food. Charnock Richard is lucky to have The Hinds Head and both foodies and casual diners can expect to be impressed by the menu. For lunch, dinner or, of course, a fine British Sunday roast, everything is prepared fresh to order and is therefore of the highest quality you’ll find.

From Monday to Saturday between midday and 3pm, The Hinds Head lunch menu consists of more homey classics than you can shake a stick at. Think scampi in a basket, steak and onion baguette, pies, jacket potatoes and some wonderful daily soups. From The Hind’s Head main menu, start with creamy garlic mushrooms, a duo stack of black and white pudding, or the chef’s special fishcakes. For your mains you can keep it classic with British favourites like sausage and mash or beer battered fish and hand cut chips, or refine things a little with braised lamb shank or a divine fillet steak stroganoff. There are also plenty of seafood and vegetarian dishes but, whatever your choice, be assured that your food has been prepared using only the freshest produce from local suppliers around Chorley and Lancashire.

Delicious food and thought the soup and roast together was very good value. Particularly liked the French onion soup. Excellent service too. All in all a very enjoyable Sunday lunch.
