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.

Awesome staff and food. Bartender was great, waiting on staff couldn’t do enough. Would definitely visit again. Miserable weather but that was the only bad thing

The food here is brilliant, one of my favourite local pubs. The atmosphere is always great and the staff are a credit to the pub.

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.

We had a great meal out at the Hinds Head for our sons 20th birthday. We were accompanied by our two other children aged 10 and 14 and there was something on the menu to suit everyone. Particularly enjoyed the home made fish and chips, batter was really crispy and the chips cooked to perfection - no oven chips here! The ambience in the restaurant was lovely too, I have been during the daytime but at night it is a different experience with soft lighting, candles and fairy lights. Staff are really friendly and efficient. Overall a great experience, we will definately return!

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.

Three of us dined here at lunch time, the menu was full of great choices we struggled to decide what to have! 1 of us had moules which were reported as being excellent, my husbands rump steak with peppercorn sauce was very tasty and the steak very tender. I had steak and mushroom pie of the day with chips, I have never seen so much tasty meat in a pie the meat just melted in the mouth. Would highly recommend.

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.
