Seasonal Food August 2015
What is going on in the countryside surrounding Tetbury during August? Remaining true to our commitment to local Cotswolds produce means we allow seasonality to exert its natural influence and we look forward to the different varieties that each month brings. So what can you expect from
this August's produce? What are the key driving forces for our many local suppliers? And how does all of this affect what is happening in our hotel and restaurant in Tetbury
- The Priory Inn?
Our newest venture serves traditional fish and chips with a twist. All our fish
is fresh and we cook everything to order. You can choose to have your fish,
prawns or squid
battered or grilled, with chips or a Stargazy salad.
The fish bar is a relaxing place to eat in and watch the world go by, or enjoy
your fish al fresco in the herb garden. Of course many choose to take it
all away and enjoy their meal at home. We have Cotswold beer,
wine and softdrinks to have in or takeaway.
Since we do everything to order, why not call ahead so everything is ready for you when you arrive? Or, you can place your order and enjoy a pint or glass of wine from The Priory Inn. We will
let you know when your order is ready.

360,000 brush strokes later...Rhumble is complete!
Carole Conde has completed Rhumble the handsome Minchinhampton Hereford on our
Rhumble has taken: 170 hours / 40 pots of paint / 12 meters of timber / 360,000
brush strokes / 3,000 trips up and down the ladder / a massive allowance of fun
/ and huge injections of guest appreciation.
We have also thoroughly enjoyed the process of seeing Rhumble emerge from a
massive white canvas on our large restaurant wall. Carole Conde has been our local "artist in
residence" since November working away on his gorgeous
features, feathery ears and shiny nose. Carole made
Rhumble's acquaintance on Minchinhampton Common and his name derived from one of
the ice-cream van's tastiest offerings - rhubarb and crumble. He is now for
sale to a very good home.
Rhumble is now available framed as a limited edition print. Come and see us or
contact Carole direct.

pizzas. To complete the perfect evening in, we have local ale, lagers and ciders in takeaway
bottles. It is all ready to go during service periods - just call through your order and come

Kitchen Herb Garden
A huge thank-you to the team here for working so hard to get us ready for the
planting of our culinary and aromatic herb garden.
Jekka and Team McVicar have
nurtured our plants in their Alveston herbetum and we have been eagerly waiting
for the Spring to see them bedded in. Sunshine and rain will now be the perfect
ingredients for an ever-changing garden this year and beyond.
The Priory Inn "30 Mile Food Zone"
In November 2008, we launched our "30 Mile Food Zone" (as the crow flies) at The Priory Inn.
It grew out of a belief in the quality of food and drink on offer so close to us
here in Tetbury and a genuine desire to represent the suppliers, farmers,
growers and local artisans on our menus and behind the bar.
It has become bigger than we could have imagined!
