Having had to drive over 400 miles without a break the staff at The Priory were unbelievably helpful, kind and professional. I arrived on a bleak early March evening and asked for a room.

Evening dinner with friends did not disappoint. Haven't been here since I was a child with my parents, we use to come regularly. All I remembered and loved. Service attentive and old school charm. From the drinks with appetisers in the bar, to the faultless service, to the wonderful food, and great atmosphere. Simply nothing to fault.

The view from the room( and small balcony) was postcard perfect. As for the food- oh my!...

Excellent service,chairs pulled out,napkins put on lap...

A unique and interesting hotel tucked away in beautiful gardens next to the river. The building is very old and attractive . Friendly and helpful staff, wonderful food and a very comfortable room overlooking the garden. Highly recommended.

We went for what we thought was a 50th birthday party. Unknown to all the guests it was a secret wedding for our very good friends. The staff went out of there way to keep everything secret until we were ushered into the church. When we came back into the Priory the staff were excellent making sure everyone's glasses were...
