We live nearby so have visited here a few times with and without the kids - the children's menu goes down very well! No kids today so we decided to walk over for a couple of drinks and a peaceful Sunday dinner. My husband ordered...More

I love The Prior as it is my local pub and the staff are so friendly, but it really bugs me that the chef just can't cook chips! They are a lovely golden brown, but rock hard potato inside! I even ordered sweet potato chips...More

Very average pub food. Quality of food is poor. Everything appears to be frozen and pre prepared by outside companies. On the plus side; the chips are home made.More

Thank you for your review, I am however unsure where you have got your information from regarding our food. Over 90% of our dishes are not frozen and are fresh. Our meat is fresh from a local butcher, our veg is fresh from a local...More

Thank you for your recent review, however, I must disagree with you regarding the pub exterior looking scruffy & the interior looking sad. I have uploaded some photos that I took today (05/07/16) to show that the pub is not as you describe.

Two course for £6.95. Great simply pub food that does what it says on the tin, and doesn't break the bank. Not a lot more I can say. Well worth a visit.
