Office party.................not really a party.

Standard fair value food. Not bad, but nothing special. The surroundings promise more than the food delivers. Very pleasant surroundings. If you like slow, no fuss service then you would like it here.

Always a good meal and great service. Regularly eat there for celebrations or just 'can't be bothered to cook' nights! Never fails to come up to scratch - highly recommended!

Went for lunch with a friend and we're delighted with the warm welcoming atmosphere of a fire on a miserable day. However this was not matched by the person behind the bar. My friends meal was served at least five minutes before mine and was luke warm with under cooked potatoes. However , when mine did arrive, it was hot... More

We used to use this pub a lot when we lived in Bristol. On vacation, we met friends there for a late lunch. It's not as we remember it. The service was dreadfully slow, the pies which we remembered with such affection were almost devoid of meat and filling of description, the fish small and overcooked. Had we not been... More

However for the second time we found the meal served was tepid and the plates cold. Returned to the kitchen, the meals came out again properly warmed through. There was an an apology. This may have... More

We visited the Priory on Sunday 17th January 2016 as this is an ideal 1/2 way meeting place for my brother, my Mum and Dad and myself to all meet up. It is just off the M5 by Gordano services, really easy to find and a real gem. We arrived to a really warm welcome by friendly smiley staff. We... More

We chose The Priory to have Lunch as it was central to all the family members who wanted to meet up after Christmas. We got there early for Lunch as you are unable to book in advance and there were several people already waiting when we arrived. My advice would be to get there early as i would highly recommend...

The Priory is out local pub. It is just round the corner from where I live. So I go there quite frequently. The food and service there is great although it can dip when there is high levels of customers. The food is pretty much just standard pub food but ramped up a bit. Although it is very nice, it's...
