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.
