The Priory Inn
Converted from an ancient stable block, The Priory Inn is a privately owned hotel and restaurant which deserves its great local reputation and loyal following - the true heart of Tetbury.
If a stylish environment, relaxed yet professional service, great atmosphere, fabulous local food and on-site parking are important (as well as value for money), then The Priory Inn is the place for you in Tetbury. The 14 en suite, non-smoking bedrooms are simply furnished in a soothing palette of coffee and creams, with walnut furniture, huge beds, white fluffy duvets and bright canvases. As parents themselves, the owners understand family needs and offer great facilities, many thoughtful little touches for younger guests and their own healthy menu - making it a firm favourite for the whole family.
Eating and Drinking at The Priory Inn
The Priory Inn restaurant has won many awards for its modern rustic food, local menus and professional service: Harden's Remy Restaurant Award; Cotswold Life Food and Drink Awards; and Taste of The West Awards. Each table tells a monthly tale about the produce currently in season and the suppliers that have contributed to the local menus and drinks.
The Priory Inn is committed to its "30 Mile Food Zone" which means that around 90% of the food that you enjoy there is from within a 30-mile radius of Tetbury. The wood-fired oven turns out delicious pizzas the likes of which you will have only tasted in Italy (with a Cotswold twist!) and delicious home-baked breads.
The bar features local cask ales such as Uley Bitter and lagers, cider, stout and wheat beer from The Cotswold Brewing Company, wine from a local vineyard, apple juice from unsprayed ancient Gloucestershire orchards and Cotswold Spring bottled water.
So relax around the enormous central log fire and enjoy the very best that the region has to offer. If you enjoy kicking back and listening to live music, go along any Sunday night from 8.00pm. for semi-acoustic singer/songwriters and an exceedingly chilled-out atmosphere!
Fish and chips are done beautifully at Stargazy Fish Bar, next door to The Priory Inn - either to take-away or eat in at the fish bar. Everything is cooked to order so if you don't like waiting, you can call in your order to collect (01666 500690), or have a drink at the bar next door if things are busy. With a true focus on quality, much of your meal is made in-house - curry sauce, batter and fishcakes. If you prefer the healthy option, choose grilled fish and a garden fresh salad. Open 7 days a week from 12-3pm and 5-9pm.

Christmas and New Year at The Priory Inn
We believe Christmas should be a beautifully simple, yet deliciously cosy affair!
Of course it is a special time for the family and at The Priory Inn, you will be in a true home-from-home environment. A classic Christmas lunch menu is served on Christmas Day featuring food from within our "30 Mile Zone" and the very best free range turkeys that Gloucestershire has to offer.
Our real Christmas trees - hand-selected from the Charlton Park Estate - take pride of place with twinkling lights, and Father Christmas will undoubtedly leave a gift under the tree for our younger guests. Please book early for lunch so that we can make your day - around our massive log fire - extra special this year.
The hotel is always open throughout the Christmas holidays and we charge normal weekend rates over the peak period, so please call for availability. On Christmas night we have no service as we treat our staff to a well-deserved feast, but everything else runs as normal.
We also have a lip-smacking Christmas party menu if you wish to pull a cracker or two and get festive with your colleagues or a group of friends. You can hold a Christmas party with us any time through the festive period and into January. Or if you would prefer to join our dedicated party nights, then you can book small or large tables and enjoy the best atmosphere in town with dancing and decorations alongside our delicious menu. Please call for more information - or make a night of it and book a room too!. Early booking makes sense!
The Priory Inn knows how to “do” small meetings or conferences – efficient service in a relaxed and stylish environment offering great home-cooked food and local drinks. The conference room seats 35 theatre style and The Priory Inn can cater for up to 100 for lunch or dinner. The unwavering focus on Cotswold fare and consistently high quality of food and service will reassure you and impress your colleagues or clients.
