I have visited The Priory on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. Wonderful surroundings Excellent food and brilliant service. Whether you go for a "girlie lunch" and eat outside watching the boats on the river or you go for a more formal evening meal.as a couple or with friends I have never been able to find anything at all...

We stayed one night at this excellent hotel. Room was very comfortable. Staff most polite and helpful. Dinner menu was most impressive with a good wine list to match. The hotel is a few hundred yards from the centre of Wareham and is set in beautiful secluded gardens on the River Frome. Breakfast was served on the terrace. Very good... More

We made a lunch time visit, and, despite having a large private function going, we were nonetheless treated by the courteous and friendly staff with speed and efficiency. The food is absolutely delicious and the starter for me was so good that I had to request a 'doggie bag' for the remainder of my main course! There are lots of... More

The Priory is not too easy to find but trust your satnav! We were greeted very warmly and had an excellent lunch, well prepared and immaculately served. Very good cheese board too. The staff were all extremely pleasant and knowledgeable about the Priory and Wareham. We shall go again next time we are in the area.

Just spent an evening at the priory restaurant Wareham. It was a special occasion for us and decided to go somewhere special. We weren't let down. Fantastic food, great relaxed environment and service of the highest quality from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. I highly recommend it.

This ancient hotel relaxes with its back against Wareham's church wall and its feet in the Frome river, gazing at the water meadows and the Purbeck Hills beyond. It is a small, privately-owned, quality hotel where great 'service' is still by individuals, to individuals, rather than part of a branded, packaged process. We particularly liked: The gardens. Most gardens can... More
