The Priory is a beautiful place and garden to visit. It has a small cafe serving scrumptious homemade fare. Set in an old Priory. A perfect place for a quiet lunch. Cakes, sandwiches quiche etc, no cooked hot food. Not open Thursdays

This is an interesting building with a great history. It has so much potential to continue to help people into the future. I wish the trustees well with both maintaining and developing this old priory.
