Well, that’s not the news we were hoping for. Following the Government’s announcement, we find ourselves in ‘Tier 3’, which means we will have to wait a little longer until we can open our doors again. We were desperately hoping this wouldn’t be the case.
The tiers are due to be reviewed on the 16th December, so we’re keeping everything crossed for some positive news then but sadly, we won’t be able to honour any bookings that have already been made between now and the 16th December.
In these tricky times, your messages of support have meant the world to us, so thank you. We’ll keep in touch with any news but in the meantime, please take care and keep everything crossed that we’ll be able to welcome you back to the pub again in a few weeks.
Welcome to the website for The Clog & Billycock
The Clog and Billycock has been in the village of Pleasington for over 150 years and we're thrilled to have it part of the Brunning and Price family.
After starting life as the 'Bay Horse', our pub's name was changed in 1973 in honour of its former characterful Landlord, Alfred Pomfret who always wore Clogs and a Billycock behind the bar, so we felt it only fitting to retain the name.
On entering the pub, you're greeted by the warmth of the open fire, rugs, wooden and flagged stone floors and decent old furniture. The bar sits at the heart of the building boasting six cask ales, a backbar crammed with malts and gins and list of some 50 or so wines which we hope has something to suit all tastes.
Carry on through, and you'll pass corners to squirrel away in before entering our garden room with vaulted ceiling and more contenders for choosing a favourite table.
Outside you'll find a terrace lined with flower beds. A sun trap in the summer months converting to a covered outside seating area with open fire for when there's more of a nip in the air.
We have also created a private dining room. It's a lovely, warm room with a homely feel which can comfortably seat up to 24 for a private family meal or a business lunch or, with a bit of furniture rejigging it would also suit perfectly a small gathering of up to 30 or so.
Our passion lies in finding quality fresh ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a spine of classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. We upload them to our web site each day before 12 noon so that you may peruse them at your leisure.
AllTrails have kindly created a circular walk from the pub to help you work up that thirst/appetite. You can view the walk details via any of the routes below. (varying levels of tech savyness required -Ed)
