SquareMeal Review of
The Priest House
Set on the banks of the River Trent, The Priest House’s history can be traced back almost 1000 years (it was even mentioned in the Domesday Book). Built around a mill tower, this fine-diner and 42-bed hotel serves intricate, contemporary food in atmospheric surroundings. A starter of pan-roast scallops with confit pork belly, pear purée and pink peppercorn vinaigrette might be followed by guinea fowl with thyme and marjoram crumble, confit garlic and pancetta. Vegetarians aren't neglected thanks to the separate Green menu, while dramatic desserts include dark chocolate parfait with a pistachio cylinder. If you're looking for a Sunday lunch option in the area The Priest House has it covered, while food is also served in the more informal Mill Stream bar and on the terrace at this secluded spot.
