The inn is Grade II* listed building, being adjacent to the 11th century Pill Priory ruins, the remains of a medieval priory of the Order of Tiron.

Parts of the monastic buildings including possibly the south transept wall are built into the Priory Inn.

There are period features throughout the pub, including vaulted ceilings and an inglenook fireplace.

The agent said: “In conjunction with the adjacent 11th Century Priory Ruins, Priory Inn is a Grade II* Listed Building. 

“It has great charm and incorporates some fine features including an ‘inglenook’ fireplace and a vaulted ceiling. 

“Due to the convenient position and the size of both the pub and grounds, Priory Inn offers huge potential - not just as a pub but in respect of a restaurant and for functions (perhaps weddings etc.), for which subject to consent, there is ample space for an extension(s).”
