There are a number of events in life that give one something to really look forward to - one such is The Priory's February Value Lunch menu (£19.95). This time, and unusual for the time of year, we were offered the opportunity to eat outside, so idyllic was the temperature under clear skies, but we did decide to keep to...

Superb. Staff were polite, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Menu was varied, interesting and more than adequate, and the wine list was extensive and sensibly priced. Service was unhurried and nothing was too much trouble and the option for after lunch coffee in the lounge overlooking the extensive gardens and the Wareham River was an added bonus.

We stayed for afternoon tea, dinner, bed and breakfast in this beautiful old hotel, a converted priory in the famous old Saxon walled town of Wareham. It is full of nooks and crannies, with beautifully furnished and comfortable public rooms and individually decorated and furnished bedrooms/suites. The local staff could not have been more friendly, informative and helpful. We wished...

We arrived at the hotel on a cold and wet winters evening. Upon entering the hotel we were immediately welcomed by a member of staff. Our coats were taken and we were shown to seats in the bar area. This is a really cosy area which is in keeping with the rest of the property. We then embarked on a...

We booked a 3 night stay at this wonderful hotel. We took my 87 year old mother in law as a special treat. We were a little worried about the food as she is not the most adventurous eater. However, the food and service were both excellent. We each had a different dish for starter, main course and dessert every...

We had trouble finding it and then working out how to get into the car park! Room was lovely with superb views over garden and river. We loved sitting in the drawing room by the fire with our pre-dinner drinks. Cellar restaurant was quite cold on the first night. My meat eating partner loved the food but my vegetarian food...

Recently had dinner here to celebrate a family member's birthday. You simply cannot fault the location, the premises and its decor. Simply stunning. Classically English and something that will be seared into your memory. The food is pretty acceptable and the wine list reasonable. That aside I have to say I and some of my party found the food to...

I was really looking forward to this meal but felt really let down by the end of the evening. I had booked for a table downstairs and had to check several times via email to ensure that this was the case as I kept getting a response that they had tables upstairs and this was not where my party wished...

Had lunch there on the 13th Dec, with my mum. It was fantastic the fire in the lounge and the decorations were lovely. A perfect spot for lunch, the food was great and the service was perfect. A great place for a Christmas lunch or an evening meal.

The Priory Hotel building was an actual Priory in the 16th Century and the history is apparent in the many paintings depicting monks. We decided to book an overnight stay there with dinner to celebrate my birthday having admired the building and lovely gardens when on a riverside walk in Wareham. Parking is behind the hotel and not easy to...
