The maze is great fun. Also there's pond-dipping, a play area, lovely gardens and picnic benches. The cafe is excellent with quality food and helpful staff. A brilliant way to spend an afternoon. I have bought an annual pass for myself and my granddaughter.

Love this place. All the staff are nice, the maze is a good size for kids. You can get lost but not too lost. The gardens are really nice with interesting plants and the restaurant serves good quality food at a reasonable price.

Having passed this many times we decided to drop in and what a treat, especially if you have an interest in gardening. Beautiful extensive grounds with of course the maze. For us the water meadows were a highlight so inspirational and with so many features...More

Interesting place to visit near sheringham with good cafe, a garden centre and also a maze. Not especially cheap but nice to wander around.

We have passed the gardens quite often, but did not call in partly because we thought it would be a playground type place - what a mistake! The maze is a proper maze, quite extensive. The grounds are simply stunning, well maintained and full of...More

I called in the cafe at priory maze today on our last day of our holiday as a treat . we have been to the cafe many times and loved it there . having had a poor meal there last time we were a bit wary . but on ordering a jkt potato for my husband . and a cheese and tom baguette for me . the meals arrived . husbands was lovely good portions . mine had two small baguette slices. Not much filling chips . but no pot of coleslaw . this was stated on the menu as included . we know that as we always have ordered baguettes . I called the waitress over to ask if they had stopped supplying coleslaw with baguettes now ? She said no they usually do . went back to kitchen to ask . we were then told no they had run out of coleslaw and it would take fifteen mins to make some more . sorry ! As we had sat watching the chef using the griddle and reading text messages with his other hand . I didn't hold out much hope of getting any . But we ate slowly . then my husband asked again is the coleslaw coming ? Waitress asked in kitchen came back with a no they haven't done it yet . I said well can we have a reduction on the bill then please ? As we aren't paying for what we haven't had . waitress then was seen trying to alter the bill on computer with assistance . Another waitress came to clear plates and asked if all had been OK . I said no as we have had to argue about the coleslaw we didn't get . it's spoilt the meal now . She said well we have taken a bit off your bill . On paying the reduction was stated as 50p off . we then had to explain that what was actually stated on the menu hadn't been supplied which was bad . And as my husband said had we been told part of the meal couldn't be supplied we might have ordered something else . but the worse thing was knowing the kitchen staff knew coleslaw was out at the time but still tried to give the meal to us as it was and hope we didn't notice or complain . This really is the last time we will be visiting . the standards and portions have been cut drastically .we were regulars having a static caravan nearby . but unfortunately arguing to get the meal we paid for isn't fun . kitchen staff really don't seem bothered . the waitresses are pleasant enough . it's not their fault . so we didn't want to complain to them . but its really not good service and all we wanted was a complete meal as advertised . thanks for a lovely lunch ruined our day. .not much compensation either .

Not sure what the question is here. Mountains and molehills spring to mind.
