Just got back from The Priory. We were met with a warm welcoming greeting. We were shown to our room which was warm,cosy and met all our requirements.It was very clean and well maintained.We enjoyed a drink in the bar and then had a most enjoyable meal in the restaurant.We enjoyed a 3 course meal and bottle of wine. The young ladies waiting on were exceptionally professional and friendly. They worked really hard to ensure we had everything we needed. The meal was beautiful. We woke up to a fabulous locally sourced breakfast. Once again the service was excellent. If i had to give 1 criticism it would be that the bar and restaurant were a little bit cold. It was a very cold weekend and there were beautiful log burners in both areas but it did still feel cool. We would certainly return. It is a beautiful quiet retreat that should be experienced.
