Description
The Hoghton Arms in Withnell is a gorgeous country pub with a restaurant menu and well-kept cask ales. Eat out in Chorley or Blackburn with friends and family in a beautiful old building that has been sympathetically renovated. Smart contemporary interiors and charming period features sit happily alongside each other. Dine alfresco in the large beer garden in summer or spend winter afternoons or evenings enjoying good food by a real log fire. We welcome families. The children's menu has classics like chicken dinner, fun modern meals and sweet things. Watch as our chefs cook rotisserie chicken right in front of your eyes; farm-assured and expertly seasoned, our chickens are tender, flavoursome and have beautifully crisp skin. Rotisserie chicken is the main player on the menu, but we do plenty of alternatives. Round off a delightful meal with an impressive pudding.
