Eating at The Clog & Billycock is such a lovely treat – I only wish that there was one a bit closer to me in Didsbury! Meeting up with an old school friend and her two-year-old son Jack, we hit this Ribble Valley Inn after a good romp round the playground delights of nearby Witton Park. The Clog & Billycock is an award-winning gastro-pub with a delicious line-up of dishes from celebrity chef, Nigel Haworth.
It is a joy that there’s not a nugget in sight – the kids’ menu is simply a scaled down and tailored version of the adults’, with the same pick of perfectly sourced local foods. Jack, our ready-made junior taste tester tucked into a burger with real chips (£5.50) and had no problem clearing his plate. Not only is the food terrific, but set in an attractive conversion, the pub itself has a pleasant atmosphere. 10 out of 10!
