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.

The Angel is a winner on two levels. First the welcoming country pub where its first come first served and the locals rub shoulders with others in the know and ramblers and bikers alike. A selection of ales and the infamous wine list satisfy thirst. Always a mouth watering, cannot decide because it all sounds so tempting menu and specials board. They have really inventive and exciting veg in their dishes, the meat is top class too. I've never been let down by what I ordered but always wanted to try what everyone else was having. Secondly there is the fine dining restaurant and rooms. It's just bob on with the interesting more-ish food, thoughtful wine list and friendly service that creates a special but not fussy atmosphere. Perfect for a romantic overnight stay, an extra special occasion or just for the ultimate treat. For me it’s probably the best in the north, and there are plenty up here, just because it does both types of dining so well but it’s the wine list that really pushes it that notch above the rest.
