Stayed here for a concert at the Grand so wanted to be within walking distance. These are standard old fashioned pub rooms so if you are after boutique then it's not for you. Yes it could do with modernising but of course if you are not here to spend the whole time in your room then you can't got wrong....

Looking for somewhere to come for lunch in Clitheroe. After walking through the town, stumbled across this place. Not disappointed at all. Cheese Pie and Lasagne were ordered, both very tasty. Friendly staff too.

This is probably the best place to go in Clitheroe without people staring at you. Ale ok (but not much on) didn't try any food. Staff seemed friendly and it's a decent size. It's the only place in Clitheroe that I had more than one pint in.

We had seen the sign outside the hotel on a previous visit, advertising a pensioner special lunch, so we decided on our next visit to Clitheroe to try it out. The manager looked at my wife when she said she was a pensioner as if to query her age. My wife took great delight in proving she was 66! It...

Swan and royal GOOD for price. The food is excellent and breakfast well prepared. The parking is a nightmare and to be sure of getting your car out in morning park away from hotel on a side street. Rooms are old fashioned and for me they need up dating,but very clean and comfortable.

Booked the hotel via laterooms, they phoned the hotel while I waited. We got confirmation from the hotel and Laterooms for the booking. Got a phone call the day after from the hotel stating that they may have some regulars who want the room that weekend so they were cancelling our booking. The booking was made for 12 months in...

Well this is the first time we have received a review from someone who has not stayed here or eaten here etc. I'm surprised that Trip Advisor actually published it but it just goes to show they will publish anything. Anyway getting back to your "review", if you are going to write a review please do not distort the facts,...

Stayed here for two nights over a weekend and it is in the heart of Clitheroe, this has it good and bad points, good in that it is handy for all the amenities, Clitheroe castle is only a few hundred yards away, however also bad as the parking for the hotel is very limited. The hotel has a small number...

Swan and Royal is in the centre of Clitheroe with the bonus of guest car parking. Staff are pleasant and welcoming. Room was rather dated and the tiny bathroom/toilet needed refurbishment but the room rate was reasonable value for money. Apparently Winston Churchill visited the hotel in World War II when inspecting the newly developed jet engine. He and the...

Ate here at the weekend and had a couple of Pheasant Pluckers from the nearby Bowland Brewery. Good pub grub and fine beers, highly recommended in the centre of Whalley. Outside seating for when the sun is shining

I deleted my last review because it read "beware" instead of "be aware" This is a simple (in a nice way) friendly town centre pub with lovely staff, very reasonable prices and a varied age group of customers. There is a disco every Friday and Saturday with a legend of a DJ whose collection of music is vast. The rooms...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
