    Move along then T.J, you are obvioulsy not a foodie. Gav - it is still my favourite place to eat round these parts because of the atmosphere, service and quality of food. We are getting married there too next August.

    GAV - What did you have? The menu is just about to change which i am looking forward to seeing. Must admit the menu is currently the weakest of all the ones i have seen but it is all top quality and sourced from wellocks (which i believe to be the best supplier of ingredients) We had the sticky chili beef, burger and cheese when we stayed.

    Never had a bad meal at the Clog but it is too boring for me (the menu). I like the choice of things cooked with chilli, soy, ginger and so on. The O&O has a well balanced menu for that. Still think my favourite restaurant round Lancashire is Cafe Grand and the Grand Hotel, Lytham. On another note, i do fully TRUST the O&O, C&B and Millstone to serve me freshly prepared food. Sometimes i just don't trust it to be fresh at other local establishments. For example " Breaded King Prawns with a Chilli Sauce" - that could quite easily be purchased wholesale (ready prepared) and you get charged £7 for it.

    Clog and Billycock has Halal on the menu. A brave adventure by Nigel or just catering for the demographics?

    Driving around on Sunday and decided to scrap the mothers' for sunday tea and hit a pub. We really wanted to try somewhere new as we have eaten so many times at the Clog, O&O and so on. We opted for The Sirloin at Hoghton. The restaurant that was here previous (Thyme) was probably my favourite at the time so it had a lot to live up to. It was okay/decent - i wouldnt return with so many better quality eating establishments. Also, the place felt dirty which really put me off. We moved twice and still felt unhappy.

    Went to my favourite restaurant last week and a few weeks before that. The Cafe Grand at the Grand Hotel, Lytham is just pure class in my opinion. We dine there at least 6/7 times a year and stay about 4 times a year. Fab hotel that has everything right. In addition, went to the Oyster for a drink last weekend. Lovely new bar / lounge area and a nice new menu (did not eat though) and i really did not feel as though i was sat having a drink in Blackburn. Very nice. Off to Little Hong Kong (Was Wan's) in Wheelton in a few weeks, will let you know how that is.

    I will do PB! In addition, the food was very very good at the restaurant below last weekend! http://www.theshoulderofmutton.net We also went with a groupon voucher (also on the website as is the menu)! Log fire, home cooked food and well worth the visit if over that way!

    "Was that recently Vintage, or under the new ownership (last 3 months approx)?" It was about 7 months ago so that would be the old owners! It was minging food, sticky table, dirty knives and forks and for a similar price I could have dined at the clog or oyster! I am always up for giving new owners a chance and I do take people's opinions on here into consideration as they are usually spot on! I will try soon and report back!

    Awful food when i went to the Nabs Head. So bad i didn't even consume over 50% of my meal (Starter and Main) Will never dine there again, but that is just my opinion. However, as a "foodie" i feel as though many other people would agree with me.

    I would not eat a curry from Ali Raj if it was free. AWFUL! I have had two in the past year and i will not be going back again and i had been drinking too, which was the only reason i couldn't get it from the best curry place round here; Bukhara.

    Yes you can eat in Tom and it is pretty smart inside. I usually order the Chicken Tikka Kebab and a few sides. It is good to just people watch as you wait for your food. I had to wait 35 minutes last time (i ordered in the shop) as they were so busy. I counted about 30 pick ups in that time and table after table of people coming in to eat. It is very community based so most people know one another. Top grub as far as kebabs are concerned. Never had a curry - i always go Bukhara!!
