Following my last review, we revisited the Clog and Billycock. The restaurant is definitely not as busy as it used to be. The waiting staff are very pleasant and the atmosphere good. However, there was quite a waiting time despite being quiet although the food was better than previously, there was still room for improvement. We will perhaps give it... More

Description
The Clog and Billycock is situated just a short drive from Blackburn in Pleasington, one of the most picturesque areas in Lancashire. So, like every real Lancashire village, it needs a pub full of Lancashire tradition and fantastic hospitality.

Steeped in all the history you might expect of a rural treasure & originally known as the Bay Horse Inn, the pub now takes its name from clogs and the billycock which were the favourite attire of a landlord who took over in the early 20th century… and somehow the idea stuck.
