The Angel Inn

The Angel Inn - in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, a joy to drive to and a treat to stay: tasty fare followed by a claw foot bath and a delicious bed...

This 16th Century inn remains staunchly, reassuringly traditional ” but has been at the forefront of the gastronomic pub food revolution since 1983. Expect nooks, crannies, beams and crackling fires, and a stylish three rosette restaurant.

Thought has gone into every detail, from the antique furniture in the timbered rooms to the fabrics and the colours. There's even a ‘Wine Cave' for small intimate weddings.

Menus change with each season and include dishes ranging from filo 'moneybags' of seafood in lobster sauce ” the fish comes fresh from Fleetwood ” to our own Yorkshire twist on tapas ('Yapas'!).

Vegetarians get more than an afterthought and the sticky toffee pudding is legendary.

Exquisite bedrooms, split between the converted Barn and adjacent Sycamore Bank, are all different; perhaps a French armoire, a cast iron bed, a claw-foot bath, a private garden. All have top-quality fabrics, pretty colours, cosy bathrooms, and, in the newer rooms, a contemporary feel. However it’s the little extras that will stick in your memory; the fresh milk and lemon in the fridge for your teas, the complimentary canapes served in the room at 6pm.

The glorious up-hill-and-down-dale drive to get here is also part of the charm. Everything about the Angel Inn is sensational from the welcome to the setting, to the food.
