Stayed here for just one night and felt we'd been here ages. Had lovely homemade soup and a sandwich (just pay for the sandwich and get the soup included). Great service too. Lovely location for great walks, which is what we headed off for after unpacking in our lovely bedroom. The rooms were lovely, clean and cosy, would definitely stay...

Well what a delightful surprise the Room...

Called in just for a quick lunch. We selected the Club Special sandwich, a cheese & ham toastie with aside order of skinny fries. Service was quick and efficient. The sandwich and toastie were served with a lovely side salad and the best beetroot chutney and coleslaw. The chutney was exceptional and totally complemented both sandwiches. The Club was full...

Soup and a sandwich for the price of a soup. Very tasty either pea and ham or carrot and parsnip were on offer when we were there. Very good sandwiches especially the club sandwich. Draught beers available as well as tea and coffees. Really delightful place especially if you have just done a walk from Scorton.

The Priory was the venue for our wedding reception in September 2016. We searched for a small intimate wedding venue with character and The Priory fitted the bill perfectly. Nothing was too much trouble for Julie and her team and we were given the flexibility to dress the room to our taste. The home cooked food was excellent with a...

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.
