The Priory is nestled within the historic town of Caerleon on the River Usk. Founded by Hywel ap Iorwerth a Welsh prince and dating back to 1180 the Priory started life as a Cistercian Monastery. As Caerleon grew the monks wanted to move to a quieter place and founded Llantarnam Abbey. The Priory remained their town house. There is a passage underneath the Priory to the Bull Inn that is rumoured to be the passage the monks used when they met their lovers. The Bull Inn at that time used to be the monks kitchen. When the monks moved on the Priory later became a Nunnery private residence and since 1996 this beautiful building and its secluded grounds have been home to the Priory Hotel and Restaurant. We want your stay with us to be relaxing enjoyable and focused on fantastic food. The Priory is the perfect setting to unwind enjoy the best of locally sourced cuisine and have a truly memorable stay in the historic town of Caerleon.
