Been to The Clog and Billycock many times but this is the first time we've been for Sunday lunch, it was fabulous, the beef was cooked to perfection, my daughter who had the pork said hers was fabulous too, the accompaniments were just right, all our starters were delicious, a very good experience except for the cappuccinos we ordered didn't...

I ate here with two colleagues on a Monday night. I've eaten here before but that was almost two years ago and I'd been told that the place had been refurbished so I thought it time to revisit. The bar and restaurant are really nicely decorated and laid out so that each table has plenty of room. The guy behind... More

My wife and I decided to give this restaurant a visit for an early evening meal and although we have been before, it was some time ago. Our arrival time was about 5.30, so there were not many people in as they only serve evening dinner from that time. A pleasant waitress took us to a nice table, near the... More

Good food, nice decor and friendly / efficient staff. For me an even bigger plus was that we could have our two dogs with us. I think thats only in a bar area, but this was by no means second class.

We were visiting relatives in Haslingden and asked them to choose a local restaurant, so we could treat them to dinner. Our family had visited Nigel Howarth gastro pubs on previous occasions, we settled for The Clog and Billycock, because of the name! Pine floors and tables, warm and welcoming. Mounted shoe-lasts as light fittings. The general decor a nod... More

A Gastro Pub worth visiting: set in beautiful countryside in one of my favourite villages, the Clog and Billycock offers spacious car parking (for the disabled, too) and restaurant spaces with a large, impressive bar. The staff are friendly and efficient and we have never eaten a poor quality meal in the Clog, even when arriving unexpectedly. The choice of... More

The food is always excellent as you would expect from a Nigel Howarth Gastro pub. The service can be slow when it is busy. On previous visits we have had good service at teh beginning of the meal but declining as the restaurant gets busier. However the food makes up for teh wait.

I have to admit the Clog is just down the road from me, about 200 yards. So on occasions we decide to trundle down, not very often as it has always been a bit hit and miss. Tonight lets just say if they were playing golf they would not even have got of the first tee. It was bad bad... More
