Beautifully decorated and very nice staff. Sat on a round table in the window so we could easily chat. Chilli squid for starters was a bit disappointing as it was just squid rings. My husband had black pudding for starters which he said was lovely....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.
