Seasonal Food May 2013
What is going on in the countryside surrounding Tetbury during May? Remaining true to our comittment 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
May'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?
Cotswold Life Food and Drink Awards 2013
The Priory Inn has been nominated for a 2013 award with The Cotswold Life Food
and Drink Awards for "Best Cotswold
Menu" - a humble thank-you to anyone who thought we should be included in
the running. Here at The Priory Inn, we all believe in creating a
special network of connections between our
guests, servers, chefs, growers, their plants and animals and ultimately the
food we serve - so this nomination is exceptionally welcome! It also gives
us the chance to invite any food and drink suppliers within our
30 Mile Food Zone to come forward and tell us about their product.
Business as normal...
It is hard not to notice that some changes have happened outside The Priory
Inn with the
front garden transformed by the project management skills of
Virtus Construction and
Jagged Edge Design's plans in time for the Summer sunshine! Our reciprocal
oak pergola expertly created by William's Forge in Tetbury now has pride of
place and the new Priory Inn sign has been lovingly hand-carved by Jamie
Alcock of Rupert King in Coates.
Thank-you to our guests and neighbours for their patience with the works and we
look forward to sunny days, warm evenings and some beautiful planting so we can all enjoy the new look garden!
Highgrove Garden Tours
If you are lucky enough to be visiting the gardens at Highgrove this year, come and taste the local flavours of the Cotswold countryside at our Tetbury restaurant before or after your visit. Having catered for many Highgrove groups, we understand that the timing of your day is crucial - as is easy parking - so contact us to reserve tables for your lunch party in advance. We are happy to accept pre-orders from either of our Highgrove lunch menus featuring the Prince's Duchy Home Farm produce, making us the best possible restaurant in Tetbury for a truly local lunch!
Barter at the Back-Door
Allotment over-run with veggies? Herb garden overflowing? Even garden
flowers that are too plentiful for your use? Bring any excess to us and we will
swap it at current market value for vouchers that you can use in the restaurant
The Priory Inn "30 Mile Food Zone"

"When we arrived at the hotel, there was a playmat, a selection of toys and a basket of baby essentials - nappy sacks, changing mat, Mothercare toiletries and even a bath thermometer - waiting in our room. A nice touch, and all part of the service of laying on age-specific amusements for each of their small guests"
