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.

“Wedding Ceremony and Reception”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

We had the Wedding Ceremony and Wedding Breakfast at The Priest House. The day was perfect in every way. Debbie and her team could not do enough for us. The venue is stunning. The food excellent and service was second to none. If you are thinking of celebrating a special occasion we would recommend you give it your consideration. Ours was a magical day and one we will cherish forever.

“Perfect Wedding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

The Priests House this week hosted our wedding, which was a very small affair with just ourselves and 5 guests and it was truly perfect.
We booked back in August last year and paid a visit to discuss the finer details back in February, other than this we have had nothing further to do other than look forward to the big day!
This type of minimal organisation of a wedding isn't for everyone but it was just what we wanted and only meant that we enjoyed the whole experience more.
We were looked after from the minute we arrived, and had a pre wedding drink in the lovely bar before the ceremony and afterwards made full use of the amazing grounds with our photographer.
The meal we had was superb, beautifully presented with perfect portion sizes and between us we tried most of the things from the menu and the feedback from everyone was that it was one of the nicest meals we have had, even the house wine at under a very reasonable £16 per bottle was excellent.
We really did have the perfect day, a massive thank you to Debbie and the team, especially Sabrina who had a horrendous journey to work that day but still looked after us exceptionally well and with a smile on her face at all times.
We can not recommend this place highly enough, if you want a day to remember then you really must book!

“Golden Wedding Celebration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

My husband and I celebrated our Golden Wedding lunch with 17 members of our family. It was the perfect venue. As it was a beautiful day we were able to have drinks outside and children could play outside. The food was excellent. Plenty of it yet served beautifully.
Debbie was a perfect hostess and we couldn't think of any other restaurant in the are which would have done it so well.

“brilliant place to have a wedding and stay in the bunk barn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

We had the wedding of our dreams which could have cost us a arm and a leg at a fantastic price without compromise.

The food, venue and team are fantastic and Debbie will look after you all the way

Anyone thinking of getting married here you are in the right hands, book this venue and you won't regret it. We had a fantastic day in a fantastic setting.

Best wishes
Mr & Mrs V-B

“Stunning location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

Our visit was a birthday celebration, lovely three course Sunday lunch and one of the best and generous lunches, we have had in a long time The area is so romantic,in our glorious Yorkshire Daes,a great wedding venue and very historical, next to the ruins of Barden Tower. We thought it was excellent value for money and a very enjoyable memory of a fab afternoon,even though it was raining cats and dogs, it did not spoil the ambience. Cannot wait to return on a lovely summer's day!! Very friendly owner and staff.
