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 exclusively for The Clog and 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.


Cuckoo Gin is made with ingredients that are locally sourced and grown on their farm, just down the road from us in Brindle, Chorley.

A handcrafted, signature gin infused with sustainably and ethically sourced botanicals.

These include juniper, coriander, grapefruit peel, orange peel, oats, almonds, cardamom, chamomile and cinnamon which give this original gin its unique taste.

Cuckoo is a complex gin with a smooth mouth feel to aid those who like to sip. After a slightly sweet, piney juniper start, the flavour develops into citrus from orange, grapefruit and lemon with a lingering taste of cinnamon spice and liquorice. Dry on the finish with a peppery kick from coriander seeds.


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 gives each dish character and a sense of difference with outstanding quality



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.
