Myself and my family went here a few weeks ago to celebrate my birthday. I can honestly say it was really lovely. If you like cosy fireplace type pub/restaurants with real home cooked food, then this is the place for you.

Driving back from a short break in Cornwall we took a five minute detour off the M5 for lunch. We found a busy pub, with many diners- I think there was a deal on- but we were quickly fed and on our way. Good pub food and drinks, reasonable prices made the effort to dodge the usual Motorway Services fare... More

Supper was spread across several options, steaks, fish & chips and pie. They all lived up to the chains standard and were good, along with a nice pudding and nice coffee. Unfortunately, the waiting times throughout the whole experience were long. Our waitress was rushed off her feet and when we did see her at least she was polite and... More

After a few disappointments in recent months we were tempted to try again. I'm not sure what has happened behind the scenes but last night's meal was without fault. From the ever-present Assistant Manager to the very pleasant Waitress, the service was excellent. The food arrived promptly and was worthy of an independent restaurant, rather than a chain. My rating... More

My wife and I visited The Priory to celebrate my new job, we really fancied one of their fillet steaks. When we arrived we were shown to a small table, as far from the fire as possible, with a howling draft coming though the windows - so much so I kept my overcoat on all evening. The pate and brie...

Delicious food and good portions. Was slightly heartbroken they'd run out of peanut butter and chocolate cheesecake but the delightful waitress Hannah made it all ok. Would definitely recommend for its food, drink, service and atmosphere. - lovely place.

The wait to be served was 10 mins. Then 10mins to order food. Then 10 mins to order another drink. 40 mins to receive the worst Hunter's chicken you could imagine. 2 girls on the bar and restaurant. Don't go.
