Moody Goose at the Old Priory - Restaurant with Rooms

17-19 Church Square, Midsomer Norton, Somerset, BA3 2HX
Set in a beautiful old 12th century priory this restaurant with rooms is an excellent new addition to the culinary scene. It's reputedly one of the oldest houses in Somerset. Chef/proprietor Stephen Shore likes positive flavours, and the comfortable dining room with its flagstone floor and contrasting crisp white napery, show this off well.

Expect the likes of 'Pan-Fried, Pine-Kernel-Crusted Scallops on a Parsnop Purée'; 'Terrine of Wood Pigeon, Chicken and Braised Chicory with Raspberry Vinaigrette' or 'Hot Smoked Salmon, Salmon Galantine and Marinated Salmon with a Potato and Spring Onion Salad' to begin.

Maybe ' Saddle of Lamb layered with Braised Flageolet Beans, Truffle Oil and Boulangère Potatoes'; 'Roasted Fillet of Brill with Sweet Potato Fondant and Caviar Butter Sauce' or 'Poached Rabbit Saddle, Confit Leg with Tarragon Sauce and Herb Gnocchi' to follow.

Desserts are excellent - with maybe 'Lemon Trifle with a Lemon Tart and Basil Sorbet' or 'Chocolate and Coffee Fudge Cake with an Iced Raspberry Parfait' on offer; or for the more savoury-toothed there's an excellent selection of Farmhouse Cheeses , coming with Honey and Walnut Bread and Tomato Chutney.

Service is both professional and friendly.

Comfortable bedrooms make a stay here a real treat. See our 'Places to Stay' section.
