A family party of six of us arrived for a pre-theatre meal from the 2 course Sunday menu. We had only allowed 75 mins for our meal so time was short. After a few minutes without anyone approaching us I asked at the bar what was happening regarding our booking. The young lady although busy herself took time out to... More

We went here for a family meal and didn't really want to leave. The views and surroundings of this place are so beautiful and it's worth taking a moment to just take it all in. My suggestion to aid this is a well poured pint! The service was excellent and the food portions we really tasty, well cooked and of... More

Visited this restaurant in August, as had been highly recommended. Food very good ( although a hair was found in one of the meals, didnt make a fuss) Staff extremely helpful & our waitress went out her way re our order. Would visit again.

My husband took me as a birthday surprise. Staff lovely, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We had spinach soufflé and scotch egg as starters, very tasty, hot pot and cheese pie for our main courses. Finish off with coffee and a birthday plate of Eccles cakes. We have been to The Bull at Broughton, and will try... More

We had a nice meal at the restaurant. The food was great and the wine list was really versatile. The scotch egg, squid, hotpot and cheese and onion pie were great. The service let it down a tad. They were friendly, but forgot one of the starters and were a little slow. I think I overheard that they were 2... More

This was our first visit and it certainly was not what we expected. RVI have a reputation for good value food and service but this was not the case for us. We found the young staff need training in customer care; they simply do a basic job, nothing more! The food was OK, nothing more and without any garnish or... More

we hadnt booked, but that didnt seem to matter, and we were given a nice table with lots of room around, so you were not listening to other peoples conversations. The service wasnt particularly quick, but we were not in a hurry, so it wasnt a problem. I can suggest that you have the Hot Pot, probably the best I... More

Went to the Clog and Billycock yesterday lunchtime with family and a friend. Could not fault the service or the food. Tables were set up after the orders were placed so no risk of knives and forks being previously handled. Menu was extensive and it was difficult to choose (and there was a supplementary menu as well!) so will have... More

Dined here on Saturday lunchtime. On arrival the restaurant was not very busy, around 10 tables occupied. We ordered drinks and they arrived quickly. The small issue was the wait for the food which must have been over 30 minutes. When it did arrive I must say it was of a good quality. We had the hot pot & duck... More

I found the Clog to be very average and overpriced with young staff who seemed to struggle under pressure. Very little supervision and long waits between courses. Food was no more than pub grub standard.
