Food is fabulous with very friendly service and a nice atmosphere. Good place to stop for a light meal after a long walk/hike or a full Main meal. Food is freshly cooked and very nice. Prices are reasonable.

Stayed one night and wouldn't go back.

My husband and I spent a couple of nights with B&B here while on a weekend course locally. The staff were friendly and helpful, and our room (Ladywelle) was small but full of character, with a sitting room beyond the ensuite shower room, and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was enjoyable, though we weren't keen on the coffee; but we'll...

A few good food items but disappointing overall. Simply dreadful service. Staff in Stouts were both rude and incompetent. After suffering through 1.5 hrs of it. We eventually gave up reminding them to bring things they forgot. No apology. Glad to leave and won't be back.

I was here between Christmas and New Year for a friend's wedding and the whole day was fantastic. The food was excellent, the staff were efficient and courteous and the actual venue is a beautiful little place in an idyllic location.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Priory Scorton, The Forest of Bowland.The Priory built in the early 17th century was originally a Christian place of worship, set in the idyllic ancient hunting grounds of The Forest of Bowland, which was the hunting playground for Nobility and aristocracy alike, and to this day it still is, the area is divided into large estates owned by The Queen, The Duke of Westminster and alike. During the time of The Reformation The Priory was paid a visit from Olivers Army (Cromwell) and was duly left in peace, whist other local establishments faired far worse, the castle at Garstang was besieged, sacked and ordered to be dismantled, so even in those times The Priory was doing something right.Time moved on and so did The Priory changing from a Chapel to a Blacksmiths, a Catholic boys school, a Post Office and private residence,The Priory Inn now offers its own bakery and spacious, warmly furnished rooms. Fresh, homemade food is served, all food is locally sauced using Honeywell meats, Dewlay cheeses, Pilling potatoes to name but a few All bedrooms have light decor and crisp furnishings, flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities; each room has a modern private bathroom with toiletries provided.

The traditional bar includes a cosy log fire and a pretty, outdoor dining area.Scorton is a beautiful village set in The Forest of Bowland (designated an area of outstanding natural beauty)and is a delightful 30 minute walk from the market town Garstang, the surrounding area is full of scenic walking and cycling routes.
