After reading very good reviews of the Angel we decided to give it a try . We are regular diners at the nearby Crown and had not been to the Angel since it changed ownership . What a fantastic dining experience . Very good atmosphere and very busy . The food was extremely good quality and the service was first class. Definitely an excellent choice for a birthday dinner.

My wife and I were lucky enough to win a competition to stay at The Angel Inn overnight with a three course meal and breakfast. Everything about the place and our stay was fantastic - beautiful Constable Country location, stunning16th Century building, friendly and very polite staff, the room was very comforting, cosy and clean and the food was exquisite. I would recommend anyone to either stay here or eat here or both, you will not be disappointed. We're lucky enough to live only a short distance away so we'll definitely be back very soon.

Myself and my partner stayed here after a works Christmas meal. We stepped through the door and was greeted by a burning log fire, Christmas decorations and a friendly face. From the moment we stepped through the door the service was fantastic, nothing was too much and you could tell that service is very important to them. The building is beautiful and picturesque and the food well the food is incredible. I will certainly be returning for the food! Unfortunately our room did not meet the same bench mark, we stayed in a basic double which on viewing was nice. Nicely furnished with everything you would require. Firstly we were greeted by the smell of fresh paint which although the room looked fresh it wasn’t particularly nice to smell this every time we walked through the door, there was also masking tape still on the wood work in the bathroom leading me to feel that the room had a quick last minute touch up before we arrived. The bathroom door had a bolt which didn’t work so you couldn’t lock the door, not a problem for us but maybe for other guests. The shower hose was broken so when the shower was turned on it sprayed all up the wall as well as through the head. The door to our room also had a problem with the handle, when you closed the door it could just be pushed open making the handle useless. To stop this we had to lock the door each time. Finally there was an iron and ironing board available to use and it has to be said that it was a cheap and small iron and board, for the price of the rooms and how much custom the pub gets supplying decent equipment is kind of expected instead I felt that this may have been donated to the pub by a friend who was chucking it out. I honestly feel that they were caught off guard with our room because the rest of the experience was flawless, maybe it’s because it was Christmas and they were very busy. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them and I would stay again as I genuinely think that we were unlucky.

We booked in for one night a couple of weekends ago and were very pleased with the hospitality. We also decided to eat here as well and although the menu was a little limited, the food was superb. The service was also excellent. The only down side was that because it was nearing Christmas there was not an area of the pub for residents to sit and have a quiet drink. We mentioned this to the manager who told us this is something they are going to look at in the New Year.
