boars head location2 Shrigley Road N, Poynton, Stockport, Cheshire SK12 1TE

The Boars Head is a country pub in Cheshire offering traditional home made food, real ale and cosy, fireside dining. The dog-friendly pub is a popular spot for families, walkers and cyclists.

Its quaint Higher Poynton location acts as the gateway into one of the National Trust’s crown jewels: Lyme Park. Walkers may leave their vehicles at the pub before venturing into the park’s stunning 1,400 acres on foot. Further cherished countryside treasures — the Macclesfield Canal and Middlewood Way — are both just a stone’s throw away.

For decades, The Boars Head has served hearty pies, golden fish and chips, and warm sticky toffee puddings to everybody who walks through its open doors — from horse riders to narrowboat owners to the local football team.


Before you arrive, familiarise yourself with the wide selection of mouthwatering meals on the pub’s locally-sourced menu. Then make your way up to Higher Poynton, hunker down beside a crackling fire and tuck in to some delicious homemade grub.
