Wood-Fired Meats

& Craft Beers

The Perfect Combination

Introducing the newly refurbished Grill & Grain at The Boatyard – a brand new bar and restaurant that offers you the perfect combination of wood-fuelled grill and micro-brewing grain. We hope you enjoy the unique concept of a distinctively different dining experience. Dine here and enjoy some time in the beautful location of Riley Green in Hoghton situated between Blackburn and Preston.

Our grill is no ordinary grill – it’s a wood-fired Infierno Grillworks grill specially imported from the USA . Bringing you the perfect homemade burgers, juicy steaks and ribs, and slow cooked pulled pork has been our aim for the past 6 months. We can’t wait to hear your feedback on this fabulous open fire cooking!

Grill & Grain don’t do things by halves. We also create the perfect pint for you, which is where the grain comes in! Not wanting to lose sight of our brewing heritage, we offer craft beers brewed exclusively onsite using over 200 years of Thwaites brewery expertise for you to enjoy.
