Review on Angel Hotel, The Eaterie
The Angel Hotel occupies a most beautiful spot opposite the Abbey Gardens in the centre of Bury St Edmunds. First mentioned in 1452, the building has a wealth of fascinating history and has had close links with the famous Abbey throughout the centuries. It has also welcomed many famous guests including Charles Dickens.
Following a major refit, food is now available throughout the day, either in the stylish Eaterie (complete with stunning artwork) that overlooks the town's main square, or in the Vaults Restaurant - housed in the twelfth century cellars that were once used as an underground market run by the Abbey.
The kitchen delivers a raft of user-friendly dishes with a modern British accent and a few European notes. You might begin with warm Cromer crab tart or new season's asparagus with wild mushrooms on toast, ahead of slow-roast Dingley Dell pork belly with seared scallops and butternut squash risotto or fillet of sea bass with crushed new potatoes, braised fennel and cherry tomatoes. To finish, British cheeses and Suffolk ice creams are alternatives to desserts such as pannacotta with poached pears in red wine. Thirty wines are available by the glass, thanks to a Verre de Vin preservation system.
