Great pub to socialise with friends at the weekend. There's a variety of musicians who play here and sometimes there is even some dancing . . . . Could get your beer spilled if you are not careful!!

We thank you for your pleasant feedback and I am glad to hear you enjoyed your food with us. We have recently refurbished one set of our toilets which is now the ladies (was previously the gents) hence why the toilets you used were a bit of a mess as they were the old ladies. But I am pleased to... More

Having visited this for lunch I was gobsmacked at the dire attitude of the bar staff, they seemed as if they didn't want to be there and found it amusing while stood at the end of the bar slagging off customers and where belittling another member of staff. There are many better places to go for food and a drink... More

We've been here a few times for drinks but never food, tempted by the cheap prices and the fact the pub was quiet ordered two burgers. As always service was friendly and food came out fairly quick but one bite into my beef burger realised it was cold, not lukewarm but actually cold. at first I did think perhaps the... More

What a fantastic find! We met as a family group for bank holiday lunch post-new year, and having struggled to find somewhere dog friendly and big enough for a party of 10 we were delighted to stumble upon the Priory. The menu offered a good range of hot starters, mains and sandwiches, and some lovely puds too. We had everything... More
