During my week long stay in Long Preston I ate at the Boar’s head on three occasions’ and was not disappointed with the level of service or standard of food at any time. I was also impressed with the bar staff who remembered my drink’s order on the first night despite it being a very busy Bank Holiday weekend trade and carried that on throughout the week.
Food wise the Boar’s head serves the usual pub food but to a very good standard.
Over the course of the week I sampled the following dishes:
Bury black pudding starter with mustard sauce – this is very nice but a little large for a starter comprising of a link of the best bury black pudding topped with a rasher of back bacon on fruit chutney covered in a mustard sauce and accompanied with a salad garnish.
Gammon and chips which came with a fried tomato, home made onion rings in a very good crispy batter and either egg or pineapple. This was a very good example of this basic dish with very generous portions.
Pork loin stuffed with black pudding and covered in a crispy bacon coating. This was presented with a selection of vegetables and new potatoes and came with a sauce. This was tasty but due to the pork and black pudding rather dry despite the sauce and I was unable to finish it as a result.
Medium-rare sirloin with chips, home made onion rings, a whole grilled tomato, whole grilled field mushroom and pepper sauce. The steak was cooked to perfection and the meal as a whole was excellent. The pepper sauce was a little disappointing though as it was very mild and therefore did not compliment the steak as I am used to.
