I went with my boyfriend on a Sunday evening, we were taken to a table which was very close to another couple, we may as well been sat together, the menu wasn't very impressive as it was the Sunday menu and when I asked if they had another menu I was told only the Sunday selection was available, our starters...

My wife had been previously for coffee with a friend and suggested we go for Sunday dinner. The premises are nicely decorated and clean and as a large car park. The staff are pleasant and welcoming. My impression was that this was a pub made to look like a restaurant but as we where to find out, it's simply a... More

Booked a table on recommendation from friends, the decor is absolutely beautiful and the staff very attentive. The food itself was fairly average for a bistro style pub, some of the speciality dishes ordered by other diners look distinctly unappetising in appearance. I ordered the devilled chicken which was very tasty but the vegetables were rather strange onion rings, mushrooms... More

we visited the Clog for a Fathers Day treat. The food was lovely but the service was slow however it was very busy for obvious reasons. A larger selection of veggie options would be nice.

We promised ourselves we would dine here, one day - it just took time to get around to it - glad we did though! Friday night - busy without being crammed, and we were shown straight to a table. The surroundings were very pleasant, quite tasteful and interesting. Our waitress was very attentive throughout, and all the staff we came... More

I haven't been to The Clog for a couple of years. I felt it got a but complacent and too bug for its boots, serving average food at over averages prices. However, my visit today was fantastic. We shared the starters which consisted of mini bangers and scotch egg. That scotch egg...It was amazing! Try it! You will not be... More

My fiancé and I have dined at all of the restaurants belonging to the Ribble Valley Inns and they are all lovely but this is our absolute favourite. A lovely calm, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. 5 stars from us.

Recently refurbished, July 2014, new seating in and out, looks upmarket but I do get the impression that they try too hard. Standard service with overpriced priced meals, a nice place to meet friends but i do get the impression that you pay for the upgraded refurbishment.

It was 7pm. We were sitting in our hotel, having arrived for a wedding the next day. We searched the internet for a good gastropub in Blackburn. Most stop serving food at 9.30pm. It wasn't easy until we came across The Clog and Billycock. The location is beautiful and you feel like you're in the countryside with rolling hills for... More

Went for special occasion. Had email confirmation but restaurant had no knowledge of it. One meal of each course came out incorrectly. Burger cold and tasteless. Service unfriendly and slow. Used to be a favourite, not anymore
