Great tasty food always of a very high standard. Home made relishes on the side. The chef is clearly passionate about food; the side salads are really interesting with varied ingredients. Probably the best food in Clitheroe although this establishment is rather inconspicuous and could...More

Delicious, freshly cooked food, friendly,efficient service and highly recommended. The sandwiches come with a varied and plentiful salad, and the hot meals are always tasty. If you have room, the cakes are the best in town!

Interesting salads served with hot and cold dishes and sandwiches, all prepared by an excellent chef. I believe he makes all the breads and cakes too. (Can only be reached by walking over Swan Courtyard's uneven cobbles.)

Needed somewhere nice & convenient for quick lunch break which is also dog friendly for our little dachshund. Chicken wrap was very nice as was the salmon stuffed with mackerel pate.

Super lunch with a great selection of cakes and scones, found this little independent cafe in Swans Yard while shopping in Clitheroe spoilt for choice but decided on the steak and ale pie yummy but no space for pudding.
