The venue was amazing
Venue Service

By Anthony Lynch, on 13 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 30 Jul 2019

Our son got married here 2 weeks ago. We cannot thank and praise the staff and venue enough. The whole day ran very smoothly! We especially appreciated the support given by Kathryn (The Personal Wedding Manager) who was excellent. The venue was amazing, the food was delicious and the rooms for those that stayed were clean and comfortable. We would thoroughly recommend Leez Priory for any special occasion.

Perfect wedding day!

Attended a wedding here. What a gorgeous setting. The meal was fantastic, it started off with a carrot and coriander soup which was hands down the best soup I've ever eaten. The staff were all friendly, helpful and professional. Most importantly the bar was well stocked
