Sunday lunches - our speciality

You can't beat a good Sunday Roast and ours comes with options........


The Priests House has always provided a delicious Sunday lunch, you just cannot beat roast pork and beef with Yorkshire pudding and veg. Whilst we are very much more a function venue, which has substantially limited the opportunity for customers to dine, we are intent on preserving our Sunday lunch. With the refurbishment of the Old Chapel, this now provides for a greater range of options to also periodically use it for Sunday lunch too. So as well as our traditional lunch in the House, we will be undertaking special lunches in the Old Chapel with entertainment, whether that be a background piano accompaniment, a jazz session, opera or a dance.


Keep a close eye on the News / Whats on for details.


As well as Sunday lunches we will of course be open occasionally for evening meals, although this is very much dependent on function bookings. This may be a normal menu or a theme night, perhaps even a dinner / dance.

Struggling to think what to buy as a present for someone close? A voucher for a Sunday lunch is an ideal choice. We can provide to whatever denomination you require and can forward them directly with a suitable message.
