Together with a group of friends, we booked two nights at the Post House in October as part of a walking holiday in the Forest of Bowland. It’s in an excellent location is in the centre of the pretty town of Clitheroe about two minutes walk from trains and buses. Parking at the rear is a bit tight although there is a public car park close by where cars can be left free of charge overnight.
Our bedroom was at the rear of the building and very quiet and comfortable with a well equipped bathroom and adequate storage space. Breakfast consisted of buffet style cereals, juices, fresh fruit etc followed by any variation of the full cooked English breakfast which was prepared to order. It was more than enough to set us up for the day. The hotel will also prepare sandwiches for a picnic lunch on request at a very reasonable price.
Dinner was excellent and included an interesting selection of local Lancashire dishes as well as the more usual fare. I can particularly recommend the steak pudding, a local delicacy that I hadn’t tried for many years. The wine list was of good quality as was the locally produced Moorhouses beer available on hand pump.
All this is presided over by the affable Roger who is living proof that the spirit of Les Dawson is alive and well. At £160 for dinner, bed and breakfast for two people for two nights, the Post House was excellent value for money and we would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to visit this beautiful but relatively undiscovered part of the world.
