This was our first stop on a quick tour of the South. A bit confusing to begin with as the signs said the Priory and we were looking for the Moody Goose. We had a lovely stay here, the whole place is steeped in character. The rooms were very clean and well presented and bed very comfortable. It was a... More

Went to the Moody Goose after reading the wonderful reviews here and were not disappointed. Everything was top notch and we could not fault a thing. Fab food, great service, nice surroundings what more could you ask.

The Moody Goose at The Old Priory Hotel, Midsomer Norton is a fabulous restaurant in a building dating back to about 1127. On entering the hotel the warm glow from the fire in a huge inglenook greeted us and immediately we felt at home in our new surroundings. We sank back into the old sofa whilst enjoying a very acceptable... More

My wife and I had a wonderful evening: staff were friendly and helpful, the chef demonstrated a real passion for the food, which was imaginatively delivered. We would happily recommend this restaurant without hesitation.

This was our favourite restaurant and we have eaten here on countless occasions under the previous management. We went again last night as a party of four and it was a complete let down.
