We made a reservation for our proposed wedding. Communication became hostile, after an enquiry to the menu. They were not able to offer a definitive menu and the communication resulted after arguments in the management deciding that the booking was not valid. Very disappointing as the venue looked splendid. Would be careful in making a booking for a wedding or funeral as we found a lack of personal service.

I last stayed at this hotel many many years ago. I have to say that the obvious recent investment in upgrading this place has been well worth it. The clean rooms are quaint and well appointed. The front of house is efficient and welcoming. The restaurant is great, slightly overpriced. Breakfast is amazingly good. The staff are great and try hard to make one feel welcome Would recommend

Went here last Friday with eight friends. I had the Crevettes and Swordfish and both were cooked to perfection - the chips were good too! Between us all we had 5 different main courses and they were all excellent. The service and ambience were to the usual high standard. Nothing to dislike really.

What a place! I cannot believe I’ve not been here before. Booked lunch on a recommendation from a friend, for myself, my husband and 4 year old daughter. I was impressed driving into the car park. It’s much larger than I expected, like a tardis. Beautiful gardens and building. We walked inside, already a good atmosphere with people buzzing about in the bar. Just a beautiful place, every direction I looked there was something of interest. We were welcomed and taken to our table. As we’d not visited previously, the staff explained how to order etc. Starters arrived promptly, staff were great. We all had Beef Roast Dinner for mains, absolutely delicious! I haven’t tasted beef like that for 30 years!! Everything was perfect and full of flavour. Even the veg. We all had pudding too, not a scrap left. The food was just wonderful. We will definitely be returning soon. Thank you for a wonderful Mother’s Day.

We had unusually heavy snow and decided that given that we would give local business our support (assuming they had lost loads of business due to being snowed in. This is a great little restaurant, very atmospheric and very popular. We had the steaks and wild mushroom and garlic main. The service was amazing and the steaks tasty. The source unfortunately didn't have wild mushrooms nor did they have much in the way of garlic but all in all it was a good meal. Not something you would do every day as it was a little expensive but it was nice. Great place and pleased it was open even when they had had 140 covers cancel that night and couldn't get many of their staff in. Well done.

We called in recently for the mid week two course lunch, good choice of starters & mains for just £12! Great value and very tasty. The new decor is beautiful and the staff are attentive. Would highly recommend

I had a wonderful stay at The Priory Hotel and can't speak highly enough of the staff. Throughout my stay, they went over and above to make me feel welcome. In the morning, I missed breakfast but the lovely receptionist and waitress made sure I had some toast and coffee before I left. The food here by the way, is exceptional. Would definitely recommend!

We booked a table for a family birthday and Sunday dinner. We were offered a booking at 4.30pm. We arrived early and were rushed to our table. We were trying to sort ourselves out and settle at the table when we were told by a waiter we had to order quickly as the kitchen was closing. We hadn’t even sat down by this point, nor were we told at the time of booking that we would be rushed in. We hurriedly ordered our food and sat down. We saw the food that had been served and it looked lovely. When ours came we clearly had the left overs. The food was quite nice, but we were given ready made Yorkshire puddings when everyone else had beautifully home made ones etc. We were rushed through our meals and ushered out quite quickly. It hasn’t put me off going again, but I won’t rush back or recommend it.

Excellent lunch today at The Priory. Have to say the company was sparkling but both staff and food were excellent too. We were warmly welcomed. A (very!) lovely young man showed us to our table. Food was superb. Mackerel starter was lovely. Lamb main mouthwatering. Jessica, our waitress, was very attentive with a beautiful smile. Well done all round. Would recommend and would definitely go again. Thank you, The Priory, for a lovely afternoon

Lovely location & beautiful building. Food ok although they charge you for everything I.e extra gravy! The Spanish waitress was nice but a little loud and said the same jokes to everybody! Food ok, reasonably priced £18 do two course
