Reasons for trip

There are some places one visits that you remember all your life. This was one of them. The hotel itself is called The Priory and was built for Sea Captain way back in the 19th C I think. I had read about it on Tripadvisor. We wanted to go somewhere for lunch last year as we were visiting Louth and chose this place.

I will be honest if you like pristine characterless places this would not be for you. Just before entering on the left was a bug hotel, the best I have ever seen. As I am very much into conserving all wildlife that was a good start. A lady welcomed us in (we had not booked, but she said that was no trouble and Welcome). She said she would like to show us round and tell us about the place before seating us. It was a maze of little rooms. The Gin Room was amazing with a huge selection of different gins. A comfy sitting room and little private dining areas. A large room with a stage where they hold music evening. Everywhere were quaint artefacts. Old books, ships in bottles and glass cases. Pre-war radios, old magazines. It was like a time warp. We each ordered a fish finger sandwich which was presented in a way that would not go amiss in a Michelin star restaurant. Plus the most yummy beautifully presented dessert. The price was so reasonable too. Several evenings a week they do a tasting menu of many, many courses and the chef/ owner’s love of food shines through. The write-ups on TA tell it all. Best of all many of the people he employs have learning difficulties. I would love to go back and actually stay there. The owner is called John, and he looks a bit like a slightly ageing rocker. BUT he is a man of vision and dreams and please let him and his wonderful abode survive Covid-19.
