The Priory is a modern yet comfortable bar. It serves a wide range of cask and craft beers. Also it serves great cocktails and has a very good range of wines.

Great for 5 o'clock finishes. Special offers on certain drinks on some days until 7 pm. Frizantee on draft if you like something fizzy. Nice atmosphere and some outdoor space if you need to cool down, pity it overlooks the road and nothing more interesting.

Good on a Friday when prosecco is 2 for £5. The deco is rather dated and tired and could do with a little makeover. Little atmosphere but keep drinking away with friends and your happy enough!

...although that isn't saying much! The Priory is a nice little bar which is a bit out of the way of the hell that is Westgate. You can sit back and enjoy a decent glass of wine and enjoy the perma-90s tunes. Civilised even on...More
