Nice but slow and pricey

The food was ok and a pleasant setting but I'm afraid that outweighed by the cost and the slow service. You need to make a special journey to get there and we won't be making it again. First disappointment we've had as we tick off places that are in The Good Food Guide.

Joined a walking group today which was really well organised, we were asked to pre order our food two days before the walk and with an expectation that it would be ready when we arrived after a delightful circular walk. We waited over an hour after being told it would be about 10 mins by staff. We asked for a... More

Just been for there inagral walk and dinner, disastrous, if you are thinking of going, don't, run by a bunch of inexperienced kids, overpriced food waited over an hour for the starter, most of the party walked out, those who didn't wished they had, find somewhere else,

Imprompu dinner with a customer was a very pleasant surprise. My steak was delicious and perfectly cooked and my companions sea bass was exceptional too. Looking forward to visiting again when next in the area.

At times this place has been excellent, at times this place has been very poor. This time we visited the Clog and Billycock as a party of 5, and in one word the experience was diabolical. Only one person out of 5 received what would be considered a 'good' meal, that was the cheese and onion pie. The two roast... More

I have been looking forward to eating here for some time but left feeling disappointed and deflated. The service was undeniably excellent and staff very polite but oh! the food! Bland, uninspiring, dull presentation, basically 'pub' food at restaurant prices. The 'famous' hotpot was no more than chunks of lamb and slices of onion in a watery grave topped by... More

Modern style pub, large areas for dining. Staff attentive and food good. Worth waiting until the end of the meal, for the mini Eccles cakes which are served with your coffee.

My husband and I had looked forward to the 'chippy tea' all week, and came on Friday 14th August 2015. When we were served, I detected that there was something wrong, as there was a strange smell coming from the plate. We identified this to be coming from the mushy peas which smelled and tasted foul. We told the waitress,... More

First time experience of one of the Ribble Valley Inns Group and we were not disappointed. My wife and I together with three friends visited here for lunch and were impressed not only with the location, but with the contemporary style of the Inn - very modern, spacious, bright and airy, together with an extensive lunch menu to suit all...

It was my birthday I was so looking forward to going to my favourite restaurant, what a let down. The service was awful, with only 2 staff on. I got my starter which was lovely after 45 mins, but we waited almost 2 hours for our main course. I did not enjoy my duck breast, which bore no resemblance to... More
