    Beautiful restaurant- food was absolutely exceptional! It was valentines and very busy but service was still brilliant. There is a wait for the food but it clearly states on the menu that food is freshly prepared - so it’s totally worth it!. New favourite restaurant.

    The food was enjoyable and reasonable priced. Staff were polite and helpful but they were run off their feet. We waited 20 mins for a drink & menus. Another 20 for our main. 45 mins for dessert menu. Other diners left without dessert. Took the edge off things. Not enough staff to deal with the demand.

    Disappointing meal. My wife ordered chicken breast and ham hock in creamy sauce. When it arrived the chicken breast was fine, but when we asked where the hock was the waiter pointed to three tiny strips of red meat. There were eight peas, and six very thin slices of potatoes. All this was swimming in cream. When we told the waitress she said this was the way they did things. To sum up, there was not enough vegetables, or ham hock, and should not be smothered in a very thin sauce. Which seemed to be warmed up single cream, not a sauce.

    Food was exceptional as always. I believe the only thing that lets The Priory down is it’s staff. No one has a smile. Feels very much like they are all just going through the motions. Would be a much more pleasant experience if the staff were welcoming and warm.
