Hoghton is a small and peaceful village in the northwestern county of Lancashire.

Overlooking this beautiful village is the historic Hoghton Tower, the fortified country estate home of the de Hoghton family.  Legend has it that on the 17th August 1617 King James VI of Scotland and 1st of England and Ireland, was travelling down from Scotland and chose to rest with his travelling party at Hoghton Tower. 

Honoured by the visit (and not wanting to disappoint such a high profile guest) the household was instructed to ensure that the most impressive banquet was prepared for the King.  It is said that during the festivities King James ordered that the loin of beef being served was brought before him.

Acknowledging its quality, he pulled out his short sword and declared to all who were in that room, “I announce this Sir Loin of Beef.”

It is this story that has been told for centuries and puts the little village of Hoghton on the worldwide map
