Food Loyalty Card


The Nabs Head is situated in the hamlet of Nabs Head, Samlesbury within the picturesque countryside just outside the city of Preston and not far from Blackburn & Chorley.

This delightful pub is the ideal watering hole for weary travellers (cyclists, walkers, runners, families, etc.), we serve proper Lancashire food and ale (CAMRA pub of the Season 2013) in a warm and friendly environment.

Fully refurbished internally (late 2017) we have a modern look while still retaining the all important country pub feel.

Enjoy our beer garden in summer or our log burner in winter (both added in 2016), and all year round hospitality.
