The Priory Inn wins another food and drink award

Posted: 10/07/2007 14:50:43

An 'Oscar' for the Cotswold gastro-inn as the public vote again…

For the second year running, The Priory Inn, Tetbury - the family friendly gastro-inn in the heart of the Cotswolds - has received the prestigious
Cotswold Life Food and Drink Award for "Most Distinctive Local Menu" voted
for by the restaurant-going public.

For the second year running and after receiving a trio of awards in 2006,
the gastro-inn's culinary achievements have again been publicly recognised
at a local level at an annual celebration known in The Cotswolds as 'the
Oscars of the food and drink scene'!

The Cotswold Life Food and Drink Awards, which were announced on Friday
evening at the Beaufort Polo Club, are given to those organisations which
have received the most nominations from the general public and then judged
by an independent panel. They are in their fifth year and were set up to
honour the best suppliers, sellers and producers of the finest local food
and drink the Cotswolds and Gloucestershire has to offer.

Dave Kelly, who is Director and co-owner of The Priory Inn, Tetbury, along
with his wife Tanya says: "Since we first won this award last year, we have
struck up some new and very exciting relationships with local suppliers and
producers, boosting our menus and adding interest to the choice of local
beer, wine and other drinks at the bar. Our dream was always to offer
excellent local, seasonal (and affordable) food and drink in the right
environment to draw people from miles around.

We are very proud and enthusiastic about the origin of our menu's items, and
we feel it is obvious that we should share this information with our
customers. On each table, we tell a "story" about exactly where the food
they are eating comes from: the flour traditionally milled less than a mile
away which forms the delicious base to our gourmet pizzas and home-baked
bread; the happy ducks grazing their pastures at Madgett's Farm; the farmers
adding value to milk by making excellent local cheeses; the eighteen year
old who churns ice-cream from the milk of her father's cows; and Esther –
the craftswoman who produces country liqueurs from fruit found on brambles
in the Cotswolds, to mention a few! We are thrilled that our efforts to
pull these products together and integrate them into our mouth-watering
menus has been recognised by our customers and the discerning Cotswold Life

The Priory Inn - whose busy gastro-inn, bedrooms and coffee bar have been
completely refurbished by the current owners – is at the heart of Tetbury
life. It's aim is to be the best value place to “eat, drink and sleep” in
the Cotswolds, and the gastro-inn’s roots lie firmly in producing exciting
modern rustic cuisine using the best seasonal produce the Cotswolds has to
offer, cooked expertly - but simply - and not costing the earth! The Priory
Inn was awarded three prestigious industry awards in 2006 from Harden's
Guide, Cotswold Life and Taste of The West. It has been nominated as a 2007
UK TV Food Hero.

The gastro-inn has gained a reputation for its live acoustic music on Sunday
nights and its second menu which features gourmet pizzas from the wood-fired
oven. The restaurant is welcoming to all members of the family - whatever
their age - with a special lunchtime kids' menu and highchairs, but monitors
work from bedrooms to restaurants, so parents staying at the hotel can relax
in the evenings without the little ones!

The management team behind The Priory boasts years of hospitality experience
between them, working in and launching high profile hotel and restaurant
establishments in New York, London and Hertfordshire.

The Priory Inn is situated in Tetbury, a beautiful market town in the heart
of the Cotswolds which is one of the most important antiques centres in the
UK. It is 2 miles from the Royal home of Highgrove. The hotel has 14
ensuite contemporary bedrooms.
