Constructed in 1822, The Priory near Bristol has always concerned itself with serving great traditional meals, since it was formerly a hotel. With a classic whitewashed exterior and large Victorian windows, The Priory boasts an enticing log-fire and an al fresco beer garden. It is furnished with rustic beams and an ornate mantelpiece, aiding its rural character.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Priory menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Priory ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Located in the country, but only a few miles from the sea, The Priory Portbury is a country haven, just 18 minutes’ driving into Bristol.

    Delicious food at very reasonable prices. Relaxed and unhurried atmosphere. We have eaten at The Priory many times and it has had its good and bad times in the past, but at the moment it is definitely at its best.

    Really nice atmosphere, chilled out. Roast beef was nice and good portion size, veg was a little disappointing and not hot. Staff were pleasant.

    We booked a table for 3pm to avoid the rush. Some of the dishes were sold out. Staff were friendly and helpful. Service seems to have improved since last time

    Roast Platter - excellent - beef, turkey and pork (shame you ran out of lamb but pork substitute was good), lovely veg and plenty of it. Extra gravy no problem.

    Mini puds excellent value - trifle lovely - wouldn't have wanted more.
