Took wife for a spot of lunch and decided to try the Priory, as I've heard mixed reviews. Started with being told to order at the counter. Seemed odd standing in front of everyone viewing the menu's on the wall with a waitress waiting. Anyway...Chicken for Joss and Sirloin for me. Starters were Cod goujons and soup. So we went an sat down and waited. Our drinks were taken swiftly and staff were fine. Then the first error.....soup....but no bread. Then we order bread and no butter knife! It was quickly solved and on we go. Starters finished and plates cleared. The next course arrives and I must say, the plate with not a scrap of sides looked a bit bland. However, the chips were lovely and the steak was superb! Joss really enjoyed the chicken and the sauce was lovely. The restaurant was busy and quite noisy but it was a nice atmosphere and didn't spoil the meal. Overall..pretty good and worth the £50. If I was to give a tip, it would be get a decent menu on the tables and sort the silly standing by the deli. Also, bread with soup and butter needs a butter knife, not a steak knife, but overall we were happy!
