About Us

Here is just a little info to let you get to know our pub better...



Here is little potted history of our pub and the local area... if you have a spare minute or two and maybe a cup of tea (or is that a G&T), we think it's well worth read.

Front of house

Patsy Smith

Deputy Manager

Our Patsy has been at The Clog for five years having previously helped run the catering operations at Stoke City and Blackburn Rovers football clubs, along with 5 years at Northcote Hotel. Her hospitality is legendary in these parts and having lived in Blackburn all her life it appears she officially knows everyone in a five mile radius of the pub. Her two lovely boys keep her busy when she is not working and she is partial to a rhubarb gin and tonic when she gets the time.

Beth Hunt

Assistant Manager

Never without a smile on her face, Beth is a Clog and Billycock girl to the bottom of her clogs, having joined on leaving school when she was 16. 5 years on our resident nanny, child performer, happy birthday specialist, and latte queen just loves making people happy. Beth runs a local rangers group with her mum and has 62 badges including tricky knots and sing along songs, and likes to go to the local kennels to hug puppies on her days off.


Emma Hunt


Emma is in her second stint at The Clog having recently returned from Australia where she picked Bananas for $22 per hour, a story we never get tired of hearing about. A singing, dancing, acting triple threat Emma also teaches dance, ballet, tap & modern jazz at the local school making her a quadruple threat on the dance floor. Bubbly, likeable and unflappable it has been great to have her back on the Clog stage.


Chris Irwin

Acting Head Chef

Chris was born in Germany whilst his Dad was stationed in the Air Force. Chris came to us having successfully ran the kitchen at another Brunning and Price pub, Old Hall in Sandbach for three years. He loves to spends his free time with his daughter, loves Bolton FC and has a strange affliction to the word bacon.

Ebi Mohammadian


Ebi has worked at the Clog and Billycock for over six years, and lovingly makes all our pies. A father of three, Ebi is a keen DIY'er and gardener and a wealth of knowledge to the chefs as he has been cooking for over 40 years. A true gentleman and a very popular member of the kitchen crew.



Kitchen Porter

Romanian Roberto has been a true god send since the day he arrived on our door step one day like Paddington Bear, with a suitcase and a smile asking for work. 18 months on his English has been sculpted by chefs so probably not quite ready to work behind the bar, but is a whizz in the kitchen. Nothing is ever too much trouble and he and Charlotte are our very own version of Statler & Waldorf

Book online

Use the calendar to book a table. If the time you're after is not available, give us a call and we will try our best to fit you in. We keep some tables for phone bookings.

We don't reserve any of our outside tables so if you enjoy a little alfresco dining these are first come first serve.
