Clarke is best known for creating Last of the Summer Wine, which featured during its long run Bill Owen, Peter Sallis, Brian Wilde, Kathy Staff and Dame Thora Hird in leading roles. He also wrote its prequel: First of the Summer Wine. He has also written The Misfit, starring Ronald Fraser; Open All Hours, starring Ronnie Barker and David Jason; Keeping Up Appearances, starring Patricia Routledge; and Ain't Misbehavin. Clarke has also worked in film, and wrote the acclaimed drama A Foreign Field (1993). At its peak, Last of the Summer Wine had over 14 million viewers. He also created the sitcom Oh No, It's Selwyn Froggitt! in 1974, writing the pilot episode, though Alan Plater wrote the eventual series.

In 2003, Clarke adapted his Last of the Summer Wine chronicle The Moonbather for a world premiere performance at the Scunthorpe Little Theatre Club.

Clarke still lives in Yorkshire, in a small, rural village near Doncaster. He received an OBE for his contribution to British comedy, and acquired the motto "Esse Quam Videri". In 1994, Clarke was granted the Freedom of the Borough of Doncaster; the highest honour the Council can bestow.

Roy Clarke also owns Horton Rounds in the village of Horton, Northamptonshire and was the first village resident to install a telephone capable of making external calls. It was confirmed in 2010 that his sitcom Last of the Summer Wine had been axed by the BBC after 37 years.
