Had mushrooms as a starter and it was disappointing as there was no sauce just mushrooms. No veg with main meal, didn’t see the benefit of ordering at the deli like counter. Our waiter was very professional and friendly.

We have come to the Priory for years. However after this visit I think it will be the last. We were a party of 5 put on a table for 4. We were put in the first bay at reception on the left. No atmosphere. The food was not to temperature. The rib-eye steak was not of quality. My daughters fillet was supposed to be cooked medium it was rare and cold. We asked for it to be cooked more. it come back no better. We then advised the waitress who brought the manager to our table. Because my daughter had cut the steak up, his reply “well there’s not a lot I can do now.” The sauce on my rack of lamb was tasteless. I asked what sauce it come with when I ordered, I was told a red wine sauce, when it come it was not just a red wine sauce. Hardly any sauce if any... Very poor standard of food. We had to ask for more chips, as not enough for 5. The cauliflower was hard. A very poor meal. Really disappointed. A total of £180 waisted. There was a fly in the water glass. Totally disappointing! Certainly would not recommend the Priory anymore!!

We visited The Priory for the first time yesterday for Lunch. We were very impressed with the setting and of course sun was shining so outside area was lovely. Maybe could have done with a few more table and chairs as no where for us to sit as busy. The only criticism we had as it was our first visit we weren’t sure how the ordering worked for food as we were left a while just with drinks so we had to ask how it all worked. But we will definitely be returning 😊

Yearly, birthday meal at The Priory. Would highly recommend, food was good as was the service and looked after the younger one of the group with humour. Since last year it has been upgraded and decor more modern, but why oh why have tables next to the bar? Only downside, bar staff are sullen and slow. Easier to order drinks at table.

Had a wonderful night stay at The Priory. We stayed in the deluxe cottage which was superb. The room was excellent,It totally exceeded our expectations. We also dined in the restaurant which was divine. The choice of food was excellent served by staff who were friendly and they was on hand to attend to all our needs, which made our stay very enjoyable,a stay to cherish and remember
