All together I love coming to the Priory and have had excellent service, but this time the service was slightly slow especially from main to sweet but that’s just a little minus. Will be here again that’s a cert.

If you are looking for a venue to take your friends or family, the Priory will never disappoint as the food is always very good. A great choice of food - I would personally recommend the sea bass in rock salt. The Priory is a cosmopolitan venue with friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere all around

We ordered wine by the glass and felt the selection was not very broad. My wife ordered a glass of Rioja Tempranillo which was poor quality (cheap wine) for the price paid.

This was the first time that ihad been to the Priory, but it certainly won’t be the last. As soon as I entered the grounds and saw the building, I just knew it was going to be special and I was not disappointed. Welcoming as soon i stepped through the door, great staff great bar and the food in the restaurant was fabulous.Will now be a regular diner from now on recommend it to anyone.

The Priory staff were most accommodating regarding the large number of the group (25). Everything was very positive.

Easy to book, great service and food. Only slight complaint was that the tables and chairs were tightly packed in and therefore space wasn't great. But... we had a fab time so thankyou!

Been to the Priory many times. Only reason for 4 star service is because I think we were forgotten about after we arrived. Had to remind receptionist we were there. Apart from that slight hiccup it was brilliant as usual.

Food was great. Restuarant was busy given it was a Saturday lunchtime so soon after the New Year, but this didn't affect the service.
