At The Priory, located in the Portbury area of Bristol, you'll find a warm and friendly welcome, a diverse selection of heartwarming food, and a superb selection of drinks that collectively offer the countryside pub experience. Whether you're craving an authentic country dish paired with a good glass of wine or prefer to savour a refreshing pint of cask-conditioned real ale in the beer garden, The Priory delivers the true essence of a countryside pub for numerous wonderful reasons.

Peruse the menus at The Priory, and you'll discover plenty of hearty favourites and cherished country pub classics, thoughtfully complemented by seasonal dishes that capture the essence of changing seasons. As you explore the offerings, rest assured that the bar is well-prepared to serve you, with a diverse selection that includes cask ales, fine wines, and a delightful range of British gin to cater to everyone’s taste. Depending on the weather, you can choose to bask in the enchanting beauty of the gardens or cosy up by the crackling log fires.

On weekdays from Monday to Saturday, the enticing mains menu includes delights such as a melting Camembert drizzled with honey and truffle-infused oil, served with apple, date and tamarind chutney and sourdough bread to dip, a scrumptious slow-cooked pork belly with chive mash, green beans, apple sorbet, crackling, and a red wine jus, and an oven-baked chicken breast on a bed of spinach, topped with a wild mushroom and garlic sauce, streaky bacon and melted mozzarella, served with skin-on fries.

If you happen to join The Priory on a Sunday, you're in for a treat with a hearty roast selection. Each roast is served with a generous helping of crunchy seasonal vegetables, beef dripping roast potatoes, fluffy Yorkshire puddings, and as much gravy as your heart desires. Perhaps you'll opt for the Sunday trio, featuring succulent sirloin of beef, tender pork belly with crispy crackling, and turkey breast with stuffing. Alternatively, try the classic turkey breast coated in a delightful maple bacon crumb, served alongside stuffing and chicken gravy. For those seeking a vegetarian option, the candied vegetable roast, topped with pumpkin seeds, comes with tomato sauce, roast potatoes, carrots, green beans, and broccoli.

Good meal but no way to use accumulated points

The Priory provided an excellent experience, but I would like them to change the menu from year to year.  I tried to use some on my collected points but they could not help since it is not their scheme  So how do I use my Square Meal points?
