The Priory Inn Wins Another Award

Posted: 30/10/2007 12:17:53

The Priory Inn’s 2006 success is repeated in 2007 with yet another Taste of The West award!

The Priory Inn, Tetbury, the family friendly gastro-inn in the heart of the Cotswolds, has been honoured by Taste of The West for the second year running, again receiving a Silver Award for “Dining Pub” in their 2007 Food and Drink Awards.

Since launching in 2005, The Priory Inn has managed to chalk up five industry awards including: a Harden’s 2006 Restaurant Rémy award; “Most Distinctive Local Menu” from The Cotswold Life Food and Drink Awards 2006 and 2007; and, now for the second year running it has added another Taste of the West Silver Dining Pub of the Year Award to its collection. This most recent award is further proof of the establishment’s commitment to providing a consistent and high quality pub dining experience.

Now in its fourteenth year, the Taste of the West Food and Drink Awards recognise the finest in food, drink, hospitality and food retail in the South West of England. The awards are highly respected throughout the industry and in an anonymous review, the expert judges (made up of chefs, restaurateurs, trade buyers and technical specialists) evaluate the quality of meals, ambience, evidence of local sourcing and knowledge of staff.

Dave Kelly, who is Director and co-owner of The Priory Inn, Tetbury, along with his wife Tanya says: “We are really delighted to have again been awarded a Silver Dining Pub Award by Taste of The West. This beautiful part of the country is fabulously wealthy in terms of its food and drink and we are very proud to be judged again as one of the best establishments in the county. Our aim at The Priory Inn is to provide a healthy, enjoyable experience for the whole family which provides good value for money, at the same time as playing an integral part in our local economy.

Our house-rule at The Priory Inn is to buy meat, fresh produce, dairy products and as many drinks as possible from local sources - about 75-80% of the ingredients for our seasonal menus are sourced from a 40 mile radius. This means that our customers enjoy the health benefits of eating fresh local food in the knowledge that they are supporting the rural economy and at the same time benefiting the environment. Tanya and I personally benefit from striking up new relationships with dedicated and passionate people who are devoted to developing and refining their products, rearing their animals and growing their produce (often against all odds as this summer has shown). We love what we do and are thrilled that this is recognised by our customers and the industry”

The Priory Inn - whose busy gastro-inn, bedrooms and coffee bar were completely refurbished in 2004 – is at the heart of Tetbury life. Its aim is to be the best value place to “eat, drink and sleep” in the Cotswolds, and its 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 gastro-inn has also gained a reputation for its live acoustic music on chilled out Sunday nights and gourmet pizzas from the wood-fired oven. The restaurant is welcoming to all members of the family – whatever their age – with a special kids’ menu and highchairs, but monitors work from bedrooms to restaurants, so parents staying at the hotel can relax and really enjoy their evenings.

The management team behind The Priory Inn 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.
