Beautiful grounds which are not manicured but very natural. Nice chapel for contemplation in silence. Excellent cafe / shop where the food is delightful and the staff superb.

We visited as it was on route and we wanted somewhere to stop for and hour or so for a short walk and a drink.
It is free to park and to enter. Much of the grounds are open to walk around as is the walled garden and the chapel - the abbey itself is private.
After a very pleasant half hour wander we went into the cafe - the cakes looked very nice but we weren't hungry so just had a tea and coffee and then bought some honey (made at the abbey) and some cider (made at another abbey!)
Definitely worth a visit if in the area.

Beautiful setting with a wonderful tea room. To say tge abbey is open is misleading as the grounds are mostly open but the abbey itself is not open to the public which is fair enough, the grounds are immense. The walled gardens are huge but need much work. It was sad to see the immense wealth of the church and its commercial elements but to have no idea of how or if there is any community benefit to its existence.

Having a gluten intolerance Prinknash offers very little food choice, indeed it’s range of dishes is limited to a very few options. Barring the soup which was good the remaining offerings were dull and unimaginative. The staff were pleasant but worked at a ponderous pace and the time between placing our order and receiving our food was unacceptably long in view of what had been requested. I appreciate that this is an arm of the religious order there but a little more spark and imagination would yield returns.

Nice enough for a stroll around when passing by. On entering the cafe building, we noticed a number of visitors walking around not wearing masks. With the Omicron variant so virulent at the moment there should be signs urging people to do so. Our toasted teacakes didn't include a pat of jam. One waitress, as she passed by, dropped two pats of butter on the floor & Instead of disposing of them she put them back on the plate she was serving to the customer on the next table! Ughh!

Very pleasant lunch. Reduced menu at the present time, but still worth a visit. Clean, tidy, well spaced tables and good covid protocols.

not so much an "abbey" more a home for monks in a very secluded setting. You can drive up to the edge of the property and the Chapel is open to visitors. The views out over the Gloucester plain are great and you may feel nearer God (not just because of the height!).

Stunning countryside, gentle walk to the Abbeys small church is enough to take on the views .
Great cafe which sells fab cakes and religious gifts at reasonable prices.

A place that literally soothes the karma ........

Stopped in the cafe for coffee and cake after a visit to Prinknash Bird and Deer Park. The service was very good, the victoria sponge yummy, and the coffee reasonable. I remember visiting here as a child and nothing much has changed! We really enjoyed our stop here and will return when back in the area.

Cannot see inside the Abbey just the chapel which is small.
Signage and details not very clear and we had to ask in the cafe where to go & where to park.
