Stopped here on way back from Scotland, what a great find! The room (Grisedale) we stayed in was massive, if a little tired, the staff were all very friendly and efficient. The hotel has a café bar as well as a restaurant, the menu is varied and reasonably priced, breakfast the next morning was excellent, would recommend this place.

Visited Scorton today with my friend and her little girl and cousin. The girls enjoyed a beef burger, chips and peas of the children's menu and some cheesy garlic bread. The portions sizes where good - the girls got 5 pieces of garlic bread each. I had a prawn sandwich which came with a lovely salad, beetroot chutney and coleslaw....

My husband and I stayed here overnight as we fancied a night away with the dogs. The staff were really pleasant and we got a warm welcome and so did our 2 little dogs. We booked in for dinner and the food was fantastic! Steak was cooked just right, and my husband couldn't finish the fish as it was huge!...

They were not wrong, it is a superb place, it is a family run business run by Julie - what a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Priory Scorton, The Forest of Bowland.The Priory built in the early 17th century was originally a Christian place of worship, set in the idyllic ancient hunting grounds of The Forest of Bowland, which was the hunting playground for Nobility and aristocracy alike, and to this day it still is, the area is divided into large estates owned by The Queen, The Duke of Westminster and alike. During the time of The Reformation The Priory was paid a visit from Olivers Army (Cromwell) and was duly left in peace, whist other local establishments faired far worse, the castle at Garstang was besieged, sacked and ordered to be dismantled, so even in those times The Priory was doing something right.Time moved on and so did The Priory changing from a Chapel to a Blacksmiths, a Catholic boys school, a Post Office and private residence,The Priory Inn now offers its own bakery and spacious, warmly furnished rooms. Fresh, homemade food is served, all food is locally sauced using Honeywell meats, Dewlay cheeses, Pilling potatoes to name but a few All bedrooms have light decor and crisp furnishings, flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities; each room has a modern private bathroom with toiletries provided. The stylish restaurant provides hearty full English breakfasts and meals from fresh and local ingredients. Fresh fish and quality steaks are served, along with a daily changing specials board. The traditional bar includes a cosy log fire and a pretty, outdoor dining area.Scorton is a beautiful village set in The Forest of Bowland (designated an area of outstanding natural beauty)and is a delightful 30 minute walk from the market town Garstang, the surrounding area is full of scenic walking and cycling routes. Free parking and free WI-FI are available, and Lancaster , Poulton-Le Fylde, Preston, Blackpool, Clitheroe anf Lytham ST Annes just a short drive away. ... more   less
