Welcome to The Boars Head

A Traditional Pub and Hotel in the Yorkshire Dales providing excellent Real Ales, The Boars Head is a small family run hotel/inn located in the small village of Long Preston.

The Boars Head at Long Preston is a lovely, 1700’s Dales Country Inn with cosy en-suite rooms, friendly restaurants, open log fire, rustic beams and lots of character. It is located in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, only 4 miles from Settle and 12 miles from Skipton.

The inn offers contemporary and comfortable en-suite accommodation, good food and a fine choice of beverages including up to 6 cask ales & various malts which in the colder months can be enjoyed sat by the welcoming open fire!

The Boars Head is within driving distance of Settle, Clitheroe and Skipton for those wishing to visit a typical Market Town, we are also perfectly positioned between the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the Forest of Bowland and the Southern Lakes. There are plenty of countryside activities to do and interesting places to visit in all weathers.

We had a two break at the Boar’s Head in Sept’14. The welcome, accommodation, food was first class but a ‘gold star’ award for the friendliness of all the staff.

This hotel is lovely. My husband and me stayed recently with our dog. We had a lovely welcome and the food is really excellent. We ate in the bar area in the evening as we had our dog with us, but it was fine. My husband said it was the best steak he had ever had and I chose from the wide vegetarian menu. The food is wonderful.


The staff were very friendly and helpful and they combined the Mushroom stronganof and a steak for me. The steak was very tender and the best steak I have ever had, my wife had the small fish and chips and said it was the best fish she had ever had. To just find this place by chance, we were so lucky and will definitely be back.

We spent an enjoyable few days on and off over a week in the middle of August. The rooms were fine – nice and big – and the baths – big. The breakfast was brilliant – as was all of the food we ate. The price and quality / quantity was great value for money and Craig the chef was excellent. The service was quick even at busy times.
