We are Open

In light of the recent announcement, we have updated our policies. Rest assured, we are taking all the necessary steps to ensure we keep risk to a minimum and provide our guests with a relaxing, enjoyable stay. Simply put, you can still get away from it all here at The Priory.

We are open to Residents (all week) and Non Residents (Thursday – Sunday) for Restaurant and Afternoon Tea bookings (maximum tables of 6). We have been working to ensure maximum safety for guests and staff with minimal disruption to service. Our intention is to make our changes discreet, but nevertheless there. This includes, clear cleaning processes, polite signage and of course respecting the distancing guidelines in place.

We ask that if you are planning to visit us, please book ahead as we are currently not accepting walk-ins and to rearrange your visit if you or anyone you have been in contact with in the last 7 days has symptoms. Please note, you will not be permitted entry without a face covering.

More detailed information on what you can expect during your stay will be made available to you via email prior to your visit, in your rooms and at Reception. Below you will find our COVID-19 policy.
