Description: The Priests House is a function venue specialising in weddings, medieval banquets and other family celebrations, together with being an occasional fine dining establishment especially catering for Sunday lunches. The Priests House is set on a grade 1 site in he shadow of the ruin of Barden Tower in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. The house itself was originally built to be the chapel and accommodation supporting the 100 or so residents of the Tower. It is truly medieval building and retains many of the original features. The House itself can only dine up to 34, but for larger events we have two marquees which can be set up alongside. The views and scenery on all sides of the house are fabulous.

I was best man at a wedding her this weekend and was very impressed with the staff who couldn't do enough to make the day run as smoothly as possible. Every request was instantly accommodated without quibble, and nothing was too much trouble.

The venue itself was lovely. In the shadow of the ancient Barden Tower and its 800 years of history, the Priest's House provided a very intimate wedding, with sufficient marque for a sizeable reception after.

A highly recommended venue, made better by excellent staff.

My husband and I got married here in 2011. We had a fantastic time and were treated like royalty by the lovely Debbie, Mark the chef and the rest of the staff. Food was excellent and the whole experience was amazing. The Priests House is truly a lovely intimate venue. They all made our special day unforgettable. Needless to say, we have been back several times since to dine and reminisce. Thanks Debbie!

We popped into this restaurant one Sunday a few weeks ago not wanting a full Sunday lunch but just a light snack. We were met by two bright young staff who welcomed us with open arms and said certainly, would you like to take a seat in the garden. It was a beautiful day and there was a marquee outside as they had catered for a wedding party the day before. To say this place is idyllic is an understatement. As we were treated so well we booked a Sunday lunch three weeks later and went yesterday 23rd June 2013. The bar area and dining room are charming. You can see why it is a popular venue for weddings. We were fortunate enough to meet the owner Debbie who is such a lovely friendly lady and so down to earth. The food is superb and will satisfy the heartiest of appetites. They offer three courses but after two courses we couldn't manage a pudding as the portions are so large. Well done to all the team. A big mention to the chef who we believe does everything on his own to produce some incredible food. We will definitely be returning.
