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.

Further Information

Dear diners, please be aware that during busy periods there is a maximum dining time of two hours per reservation. Some reservations may also require a deposit, for which you will be contacted directly by the restaurant.

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. Reserve a table and head to Charnock Richard now!

Terrific food and a great atmosphere. Customer service was great- very attentive and yet not overbearing staff which is a big plus. Highly recommended but booking advised. Will return again and this was already our second visit.

This is a very special place and the food is absolutely amazing - the food would not be out of place in some of the best restaurants in London! The owners are so enthusiastic and welcoming as are all the staff. They have a wide range of gins and other drinks offerings that are scrumptious. The restaurant is really lovely with all personal touches that make it so nice spend time in. We viewed but did not stay in the guest rooms which have recently been created and they are fab with John Lewis furniture. The beer garden at the back is stunning too and overlooks beautiful countryside. Well done Kev and Adam you are doing a fantastic job!

My wife and I called in on the 19th March for Sunday lunch and were not disappointed as the food was excellent. The waiting on staff were very attentive but you only need asking once if the meal you are eating is ok -- everyone of them must have come up and asked the same question!! -- just needs fine tuning. We visited again on Friday 24th March in a party of 4. Food again was excellent my only complaint they had run out of gammon which is what I had gone for after seeing it on the menu -- but I was not disappointed with the pork loin which I chose in its place. We will certainly be back again in the near future.

Lovely little pub. Very nice and cosy inside and your made to feel welcome. Food is fantastic. Husband ordered the ribeye and he said it was the best steak he had tasted. I had the steak & red wine pie and it tasted divine. The pie was crammed with so much meat which is very unusual as most restaurants these day serve more gravy than meat. All the food was piping hot and all set out into individual serving dishes. Staff were lovely and very informative. Looking forward to visiting again and i would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Amazing! Beautiful decor, attentive staff/management and wonderful food/drink. Really nice, relaxing atmosphere. Love it! I've been 4 times recently, with my partner in the evening, with a friend at lunchtime, with a friend and my 3yr old for tea and with my partner and parents for the Sunday roast. Each occasion has been brilliant and the price is really reasonable for the standard of food that is served.

We have dined there numerous times but we also took friends who hadn't been since the new owners took over. They were really impressed with the decor, the relaxed feel of the place and the quality of the meals. Between us we had:- 2 starters, 4 mains, 2 sweets, 1 coffee and our bar drinks. Total bill £97. Would recommend. Don't be put off by the outside.

My sons ordered burgers. They came piled high with onion rings etc. The burgers were burnt. They ordered chocolate fudge cake. No mention was made of fruit being included. The juice from the fruit had seeped into the cake. The boys don't like raspberries or blueberries so only ate part of the cake. Maybe they are too fussy, but had it been mentioned, I would have refused the fruit accompaniment. I enjoyed the pate starter. the service was good though.

Service first class. Food excelent as usual. We were initially were seated next to a large noisy table & staff noticed we were having difficulty in hearing each other so offered us a different in a quiet area. This was done before we had chance to ask so this was a first.

Really nice interior, wonderful food for 3 adults and 2 older children and excellent polite service. It was very busy so we waited a little while for starters but well worth the wait and staff did apologise for the delay. Good value for home cooked food. Will certainly will go again soon.

First time at the Hinds Head and the food was excellent. The reason for the 5 rating and not 6 was due to the excessively noisy atmosphere and the feeling that after being seated we were being rushed to order. Otherwise as previously stated food quality and portions were excellent value for money and will definately return.

The food was on the whole delicious, the chef was a little heavy handed on the fish for the seafood platter for my liking, on the whole the service staff were excellent with the exception to a young lady heavily made up and she clearly did not want to be there

Booked a table for 3.15 PM on Sunday. Our table was ready for 3.10 PM. We had the Sunday roast. Roast beef, yorkshire pudding and a good selection of fresh vegetables, all piping hot. Good food, good service and an excellent price.

Very friendly staff! Food was excellent! Although the Caesar salad didn't have croutons or anchovies!! Maybe add them and charge accordingly? And we ordered sweets which don't arrive as they'd forgotten, but when they did arrive were delicious and we weren't charged for them!!!! All in all a enjoyable lunch! And we will be back 😊

Food was excellent and very good value. Staff were attentive and regularly checked on us to ensure all was ok. The only negative point is that one of the waitresses was unfriendly & although she was good at her job she was very unwelcoming.

The food was nice but did take a while to come considering it was just a hot baguette. The wiring around the place seemed to be an afterthought being just tacked to the wall. The waitress did as necessary. Nice pub.
