#3 of 3 hotels in Clitheroe
The hotel reopened in September after a serious fire. The hotel is set in the centre of the historic market town of Clitheroe. The Swan & Royal a former coaching Inn dating back to the 1830's. In its early years as a hostelry, it boast guests both famous and some say infamous, in the local area and throughout the country. You can stay in rooms named after a selection of the most interesting of these people. During the day it is the ideal place to rest tired legs after walking round the market or the wide range of individual shops Clitheroe has to offer. At night it is a little more lively being in the centre of the town and it is also the centre of socialising. Weekends do get particularly lively with a disco till 1am of a Friday and Saturday evening.

Lovely welcome at this pub hotel. Stayed one night as we were attending a wedding locally. Check on speedy. Room spacious with a large double and two twins. Quirky due to age of property. Ate a late lunch there. Portions were generous and good value. Staff welcoming and efficient. Highly recommended.

Arriving on the Sunday, we were greeted with a warm and friendly member of staff who politely checked us in and showed us up to our room. Our room, named ‘Frank Whittle’ had a very romantic four poster bed with a beautiful view of Clitheroe Castle. It was a wonderful nights sleep and only wished we’d booked it for the week. We had chosen to stay somewhere in the heart of Clitheroe as we had heard it was a lovely little town with plenty of things to do - the town did not disappoint. I cannot thank Terry and the staff enough for the hospitality they provided for us (the full English in the morning was something I won’t be forgetting any time soon). It is definitely a place I will be visiting again and would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to stay.

We weren’t the easiest customers, not knowing the wine menu or any drinks we wanted. However Nicole was the most loveliest member of staff I have experienced in a long time. Confident, lovely & professional! Great member of staff. Thankyou Nicole for your customer service

Called here for lunch. Nice big pub with plenty of tables. Good varied menu with something for everyone. Good 2 course lunch for seniors as well. Friendly bar staff. All these positives so why was it so cold. How can anyone run a pub in December and not have any heat on. Observed people on the next table put their coats on before their meal arrived. Nothing wrong with the lunch but left quickly after eating as we were so cold. Basically this place will be fine in summer but wouldn’t come again until the temperatures soar.
