Pub SignMan left this review about The Priory Arms

This is a cosy, single room, street corner pub which has the feel of a proper ale-house to it. The split-level interior has been bare boarded and sees the servery run along the full length of the rear wall. High tables and stools squeeze into the space directly opposite the bar, but the rest of the room is full of tatty banquettes and standard chairs, most of which can be found on the raised platform to the front of the pub. Aside from a few blackboards listing various food and drink options, a few random bits of breweriana, and the occasional inactive TV screen, the walls in here have been pretty much entirely covered with pump clips, attesting to the pub’s commitment to cask ale and demonstrating just how long they must’ve been dishing out the good stuff. The lighting throughout is fairly muted, which creates a nice ambiance, with fairy lights strung in most of the windows adding to the effect. The servery has a dark wood counter, a heavily pump clip lined gantry and a collection of bottle caps on the bar back, whilst over to one side, an open kitchen churned out plate after plate of food to a packed house, although I never had the feel that I was in a particularly food-led establishment. Elsewhere, I spotted a large board game collection, a beer fridge near the entrance, perhaps for takeaways and a small pavement-ide seating area.
The pump clips around the room were perhaps a little misleading, as the bar supported seven handpulls, of which only three were operational, with options on this visit comprising Great Heck Trafalgar, Black Jack New Deck and Oakham Citra. There’s a decent keg selection and I noted at least one bag-in-a-box cider too. My pint of the New Deck was poured by one of the friendly and efficient bar team and was in excellent condition. It was apparent that a lot of people were drinking cask beer, so perhaps I’d just timed things badly and arrived at a busy time when beers hadn’t yet had time to be replaced.
I’d been aware of this pub for some time but had never pictured it as being an ale house, assuming instead that it was more of a gastro pub. On this evidence though, I’d say it was definitely wet-led and well worth further investigation, as it had good, well-kept beer, pleasant and hard-working staff and a cracking atmosphere.

Haven't been in here for a while. Every time I have been near, it is closed. Seems the opening times is just evenings. Looking through the window no change inside. Will not give a rating as unfair due to no visit
