Our award winning Tea Rooms were the only ones in Bedfordshire to be members of the prestigious Tea Guild. After being a member for only twelve months we have achieved an Award of Excellence in 2013.  Sadly the Tea Guild is no more, but we are a member of the Tea and Infusions Association and are still passionate about loose leaf tea and the treat of Afternoon Tea so we haven’t let our standards slip.

The fully licensed Priory House Tea Rooms offer a range of hot meals, paninis, sandwiches, wraps, cakes, cream teas, pastries and not forgetting our Afternoon Tea.

Speciality coffee and a range of herbal and flavoured teas are also available. Why not try our wonderful Afternoon Tea set in the historical 13th century Undercroft?

Any visit to the tea rooms is greatly enhanced by the wonderful view across the beautifully kept, Green Flag Awarded, Priory Gardens. The gardens provide a serene setting for the historically important Priory Church of St. Peter, where the court that annulled the marriage of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon was held.


A selection of buffet menus is available for christenings, funeral teas and other gatherings, or as part of a booking for corporate events and small groups.  Our Jacobean Rooms makes the perfect setting of small private functions of up to 24 people.  If you would like to discuss your requirements further, or to make a booking, then please contact the Priory House staff on 01582 891420.

Know better. Book better. Go better.
