Nice friendly restaurant, very attentive staff, looked after us well, the only disappointment was the steak meal, both my wife and I thought there was too much fat in the steaks. The pudding was delicious so I would say still visit for a meal but don't order a steak! We were asked if our meal was OK but neither of... More

Had a lovely Sunday roast in the sunshine on the weekend! Cauliflower cheese was spot on and washed it down with a nice pint of Doom Bar! Service was prompt and friendly!

As part of a linear walk we had the opportunity to call in at this pub for a drink and were able to sit outside in the sunshine at tables in the front of the pub. Being part of a chain, the service was OK, but can understand why people may have to wait for a long time for food... More

Very obliging staff although all very straight faced. Maybe on a summers evening it may have extra charm if you sit outside having found a place to park with out annoying the locals. On a May evening inside it's a typical dowdy chain pub with adequate food with slightly greasy table.

This pub is very popular this time of year as it is close to a bluebell wood. We stopped for Sunday lunch & they had a choice of 3 roasts & a normal pub meal menu. Unfortunately as it was so busy it took 40 minutes wait from ordering which we were told from the start. It was very tasty... More

Visited the Priory as part of a family group on Saturday lunch time. Our mains arrived an hour after ordering them. The steak meals were all over-cooked and the portions for the meals were completely inconsistent. Some diners had plentiful chips, some had barely any. The ketchup was watered down. We decided to skip dessert as that would have taken... More
