Autumn at The Priory Inn, Tetbury
Autumn is The Priory Inn’s favourite season: with the leaves alight at nearby Westonbirt Arboretum, the kitchen team has an abundance of fantastic Cotswolds fare to choose from in creating the ultimate Autumn menu…
As the days shorten and the nights draw in, The Priory Inn, Tetbury – a family-friendly hotel/restaurant in the heart of the Cotswolds – is offering a “Delicious Autumn” break, which includes tickets to our National Arboretum at Westonbirt to see the greatest natural fireworks display this side of the pond!
The Priory Inn director and co-owner, Tanya Kelly says: “Who needs Autumn in New England when you can experience the blazing leaf displays at Westonbirt Arboretum? We want visitors to Tetbury to indulge their senses – both visual and taste this Autumn: become immersed in the Colour Circle - planted in the mid 1800s for holding annual champagne ‘colour parties’; breathe the air scented with mouth-watering caramel from the Katsura trees; and marvel at the kaleidoscope of colours provided by the maples, beeches spindles and hickory.”
“And, when your senses have been overwhelmed visually (and your legs are weary), you can return to our walk-around open fire, relax with a glass of wine or local ale and let your taste-buds run riot. We have committed ourselves to buying food from within 30 miles of Tetbury, so Autumn is a joy for us! Right here on our Cotswolds doorstep, we have a natural larder overflowing with the highest quality local produce. So, what better time of year to come and sample the work of: dairy farmers turned ice-cream or cheese makers; traditional flour millers; organic fruit and vegetable growers; honey and jam makers; gamekeepers that share recipes at the kitchen door; artisans devoted to growing vines for sparkling English wines or picking from far-flung brambles to create amazing liqueurs; and farmers who graze ducks and chickens on the banks of The River Wye. We get a kick out of show-casing the fruits of their hard work by developing simple dishes which don’t have an ego!”
The Priory Inn “Delicious Autumn” package costs just £69.00 per person per night between Sunday and Thursday and £84.50 per person per night at the weekend. These prices are based on 2 people sharing a room and include an unrestricted three course dinner and tickets for 2 people to Westonbirt Arboretum.
The family-friendly Priory Inn is the ever-popular heart of the charming market town of Tetbury in The Cotswolds. It recently launched its “30 Mile Food Zone” which demonstrates its unwavering commitment to serving local food and drink from farms, producers and suppliers within a 30 mile radius of Tetbury. The very best seasonal Cotswolds produce is cooked expertly – but simply – and does not cost the earth! The house wine is served in hand-thrown pichets from a nearby pottery. The restaurant has gained a strong following for live acoustic music every Sunday night and gourmet pizzas fresh from the wood-fired oven. The restaurant is welcoming to all members of the family, with a special children’s menu, highchairs, a toy box and colouring to keep any fidgets busy! Monitors work from bedrooms to the ground floor, so parents staying at the hotel can relax over dinner safe in the knowledge that their little ones are tucked up in bed – or of course babysitters can be arranged.
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.
