Posh pub food, and desserts to die for!

Called in without reservation at lunchtime - plenty of tables available inside and out. Menu is on the pricey side (£8-10 for pies - £20 for steak), but good choice of starters and mains. Wednesday was pie day, and our choices of an open cheese pie and a chicken and leek one with puff pastry lid... read more

As one of the walking group that experienced the inexplicable unpleasant treatment by staff at The Priory as described by Jon SW, I would like to corroborate his review. We cannot review the food as we were not allowed in even at 12 noon, opening time and the unfriendly and quite frankly rudeness experienced spoilt our otherwise enjoyable morning walk.... More

We asked the landlord in advance if he could accommodate our walking group of 18. He was not very pleased to have us but said if we could make it by 12:00 it would be ok. We arrived at 11:50 , keen to use the loos after our walk; only to find the pub was closed. A few ladies made... More

Visited here on sat popped in with family for lunch very quickly filled up for dining didn't effect the wait for food though staff worked very hard. A little disappointed with the fish finger sandwich only had 3 very small pieces of fish in a huge bun however salad was fresh chips were awesome, would visit here again.

Visited on bank holiday Monday. Outside seating quite busy but plenty of tables inside. Good location and surroundings but... Light bites and lunch menu not available - is that because it's a BH and they want to cash in? Ordered food from the bar but was not advised there was a 45 minute wait, nor did I hear other diners...

Initial impressions were that it was a very nice likeable place with a nice garden. We ordered our food and I wife had a "warm chicken and bacon sandwich served with cos lettuce and... More

Pretty good food but massively understaffed on a Saturday evening. 20 mins to even get seen and even then because we asked! Better places locally so easy to swap. One waitress was awesome and did her very best but rest of the staff almost seemed that they didn't want to serve customers. Will be holding off going back.

I would like to say this place is good but I have to say it's average as it's just not consistent in its service. I've had really good meals here and also poor meals, but most are just average. Often this pub is chosen by the family to meet at as its well located off the M5, so equal distance... More
