Seasonal Food December 2016

What is going on in the countryside surrounding Tetbury during December? Remaining true to our commitment to local Cotswolds produce means we allow seasonality to exert its natural influence and we look forward to the different varieties that each month brings. So what can you expect from this December's produce? What are the key driving forces for our many local suppliers? And how does all of this affect what is happening in our hotel and restaurant in Tetbury - The Priory Inn? Read more  

Cotswolds Christmas and New Years Eve

We are now taking bookings for the big 25th. Our festive lunch on Sunday 25th December offers a relaxed and home-from-home atmosphere to share with your family.  The menu has been planned around our 30 Mile Food Zone, so you will enjoy local Cotswolds fayre with some yummy twists to make your day extra special.  Father Christmas will of course leave a gift under the tree for our younger guests. See our Christmas Day menu here and book when you are able.

Our Christmas party menu is designed to please everyone in your group and is sourced from the highest quality producers in the Cotswolds.  Add in some crackers, a roaring walk-around fireplace and a super-friendly team to serve you and you have the best Tetbury Christmas party venue. See our Christmas party menu here and call through your reservations whenever you are ready!  We also have a dedicated party night with a DJ, dancing and lights on Thursday the 15th December.

New Years Eve is simple. Bedrooms are priced at weekend rates including dinner but with a house-policy of:
no gimmicks, no hiking up the prices, no special menu, just The Priory Inn at its very best.  Our home-grown DJ will  spin some discs later in the evening, party poppers are obligatory and the bubbles will be flowing.

Please don't leave it too late to book your bedrooms and tables!

Awards for The Priory Inn

The Priory Inn was very proud to be a joint winner at the 2016 Gloucestershire Business Awards under the category of Corporate Social Responsibility.  The judges could not split our entry and CCP Involve Gloucestershire so we shared the victory! Our environmental, workplace and community practices were judged as one of the best in Gloucestershire through buying food and drink from within 30 miles, and various community projects such as Barter-At-The-Back-Door.

We were also nominated as a finalist in Cotswold Life's 2016 Food and Drink Awards in the "Best Cotswold Menu" category and Stargazy Fish Bar was nominated as "Best Newcomer".  The award ceremony was a great evening and although we didn't bring home the trophies, we felt very proud to represent The Priory Inn and Stargazy at such a prestigious event!

Stargazy Fish Bar

We are all very proud of our fish bar which has recently been included in the top 3 UK newcomer fish and chip shops in the National Fish and Chip Awards.  Our newest venture serves high quality traditional fish and chips with homemade extras. All our fish is MSc certified from sustainable sources. We cook everything to order so no food ever sits around waiting for you. Choose to have traditional battered fish (with our homemade batter) or take the healthier grilled option with a Stargazy salad. Click to see our menu here.   

The fish bar is a relaxing place to eat in and watch the world go by, or enjoy your fish al fresco in the herb garden.  Of course many choose to take it all away and enjoy their meal at home. We have Cotswold beer, wine and softdrinks to have in or takeaway.

Since we do everything to order, why not call ahead so everything is ready for you when you arrive? Or, you can place your order and enjoy a pint or glass of wine from The Priory Inn. We will let you know when your order is ready.

Prefer to eat at home?

We can serve you battered or grilled fresh fish, frankfurters and chicken goujons cooked to order next-door from Stargazy Fish Bar.  From the main kitchen, you can order gourmet burgers and we have the very best takeaway wood oven pizzas sourced from within 30 miles of Tetbury.

To complete the perfect evening in, we have local ale, lagers and ciders in takeaway bottles.  It is all ready to go during service periods - just call through your order and come and collect!

The Priory Inn "30 Mile Food Zone"

In November 2008, we launched our "30 Mile Food Zone" (as the crow flies) at The Priory Inn.
It grew out of a belief in the quality of food and drink on offer so close to us here in Tetbury and a genuine desire to represent the suppliers, farmers, growers and local artisans on our menus and behind the bar.
It has become bigger than we could have imagined!
