SquareMeal Review of
The Angel Inn
The Angel Inn celebrated its 30th birthday in 2013, but this landmark country inn (and pioneering gastropub) still brings a sense of occasion to the party with its beams, highly polished furniture, kitchen range, open fires and comfortably affluent surroundings. This place is all about food, with blackboards everywhere displaying the day’s menus, specials and nibbles: eat in the bar, brasserie or smart, intimate restaurant from a line-up of savvy, eclectic dishes founded on Yorkshire meats, game and fish – think little ‘moneybags’ of seafood (a classic), char-grilled beef fillet with oxtail pudding and horseradish mash or pan-seared brill fillet with parsley root, wild mushrooms and red wine reduction. Puddings and cheeses are spot-on, while the wide-ranging, connoisseur’s wine list offers great value for money. The Angel is perpetually rammed, with regular queues at peak times – hence booking is a must.
