Welcome To The Clog & Billycock

At the heart of every great village should be a great pub. We pride ourselves on being part of the community, choosing the best local and regional ingredients and creating the perfect atmosphere to enjoy our food and drink.

A menu created by Nigel Haworth, gin bar handpicked with a wide variety of offerings and a relaxed environment to bring family and friends - it’s what we’re all about.


It's strawberry season! So naturally we've handpicked a fresh-flavoured gin which reflects this summer-ready, fruity flavour.

Originally described as a ‘mistake’ by the master-distiller, after a failed attempt at making a strawberry liqueur with fresh strawberries, he added the mashed strawberries to a new gin he was working on and their Strawberry Gin was born.

The distillery of Puerto de Indias in Seville has been producing spirits since 1880 making it one of the oldest and most traditional distilleries in the province of Andalusia.

The strawberries, plants and other ingredients that go into Puerto de Indias are carefully selected to really make this drink first class.

Strawberries from the region of Huelva in Andalusia are used, which are supposed to be the best of their kind in Europe.

This gin is soft and delicate. Intense aromas of strawberry and juniper begin on the nose,  then the taste of strawberry is subtle with delicate touches of liquorice and gentle citrus notes on the palate.

Try it with ginger ale and a lime or mint garnish.



There is nothing quite like knowing where your food comes from. Nigel and all his kitchens have become famous for championing local and British produce and they are the heart and soul of the food at the Clog & Billycock. 

Quality and character are the defining qualities and we at the Clog salute all our local food producers.

"The finest British ingredients are the heart and soul of all the food at The Clog. Celebrating the nature of our own regional produce, what gives it character, what makes it the best." Nigel Haworth



We're delighted to be housing this collection of recently rediscovered photographs.

Wally Talbot and his son Howard were Blackburn based photographers working in the areas of Press, Sport and Commercial photography from the 1930s through to the 1990s.

The photographs here were taken mainly between 1950 and 1969 responding to daily assignments in Blackburn and it's locality. Staff and students at Blackburn College, in partnership with the Talbot family and Blackburn Library have been digitally archiving the photographs to preserve this essential piece of social history.
