Warm welcome by the log fire . Good service. Varied choice of menu. only minor criticism was a couple of bones in the very large fish my husband had. The smoked salmon and prawn salad was very good and plehtyiful. Otherwise very good and not too expensive. Will be taking our family when we get together soon.

Cannot recommend The Priory highly enough. We had our wedding here and Julie and the staff were absolutely brilliant. They listened to exactly what we wanted and communication was superb. The day was perfect and everyone commented on the location and really personal atmosphere during the ceremony and afterwards. Food was delicious during the meal and breakfast in the morning....

We travelled to lovely village of scorton and in particular the Priory to sample the breakfast having heard some very good comments from friends. We went around 11-00 am for a late breakfast.We had to wait for a while over a coffee but this wait tells you a lot. The wait means it is not stored on hot plates but...

Me and my family visited the restaurant on Saturday night. My step father had never been before and couldn't believe how amazing this place was!!! We all had starters, mains and treated ourselves to deserts. The food was delicious! My 5 year old son had the potted shrimps and loved them!! The staff were so friendly, and couldn't do enough...

Small size hotel - with restaurant - offers a relaxing setting. If you enjoy a nice soaking, the bath in "Little Dale" is just fab!!! Clean, comfortable rooms with nice little touches. Good value (though breakfast was average) and ideal to explore the area.

My Husband and I got married at The Priory in September, our day was perfect!. This was mainly in thanks to the owners and their staff at The Priory.

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 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.
