Took three clients here for lunch on a Monday. The restaurant is full of charm and my American visitors loved it. The counter showing off the fresh food looks fabulous, but we all settled for the 2-course lunch at £10.95 which had a good selection of choices. The food when it came was very good, tasty, nicely presented and good... More

Went with a large party for a birthday, arrived early and sat in the bar with a bottle of wine. The bar man was friendly and helped us in choosing one from a large list of wines which all sounded excellent. We were seated and looked after by a waiter named Ellis all evening, he did a brilliant job in... More

Met up with a friend for lunch and chose from the £10-95, two course menu. The "prawn salad" consisted of a portion of prawns swimming in a tasteless sauce on 3 or 4 green leaves; I don't think it could be described as a salad! We both chose duck leg with red cabbage for mains. Unfortunately the entire dish was... More

What can I say about The Priory? Everytime I visit, the food is amazing, the service is amazing and the atmosphere is amazing. Today was the first time that we had visited for Sunday lunch and it was quality. The beef was exquisite and the Chorizo/Pork starter was simply delicious. My partner is a vegetarian and she had the spinach... More

The dinner bed and breakfast stay for £110 was excellent value. Our room was in the garden cottage a nice little annexe room with everything we needed. The highlight, however, has to be the restaurant which offers really fresh local produce, a good set menu and really excellent service. All of the staff are very pleasant and the hotel offers...

Looked forward to our second visit here after our first fab time. However, having dressed up as the restaurant has a 'no t shirt' policy, we felt overdressed next to many men int shirts and casual dress. My asparagus starter was almost cold with a mayo type cream dressing, not the usual yellow hollandaise as advertised. My husbands tomato sauce... More

Had Sunday lunch as a couple here today- great price £13.95 two course, and beautiful food. Both the lamb and beef were delicious with veg and potato accompaniments. Staff friendly, helpful and attentive- the atmosphere is cosy and comfortable. I will visit again, and would be happy to visit with the children as it was also a very family friendly... More

We had our wedding in July this year. We planned to have a small wedding reception. It was hard to find a hotel to accommodate a small wedding breakfast. We found Priory Hotel via Internet search.

Enjoyed a lovely sunday afternoon with my partner. Food was fantastic from starters to desserts. Staff were friendly and we were not rushed, able to enjoy lunch at our pace. We will definitely be returning. Thanks to the staff for a lovely afternoon.
