Review on Angel Inn
The Angel flies high on success and has established itself as an archetypal country pub/restaurant since opening its doors more than 20 years ago. Its core is a long, grey-stone village inn which has filled out and absorbed a couple of adjoining cottages, and the interior comprises several rooms grouped around a central bar.
Beamed ceilings, polished oak tables and an old-fashioned range evoke an atmosphere that flits between tasteful tradition and upbeat brasserie. Indeed, you might think you had been miraculously teleported to South Kensington when you read the menu. The style may be twenty-first century London, but portions are Yorkshire trencherman.
Flexibility is the key, and the Bar Brasserie menu invites you to order as much or as little as you like. Here is a kitchen that deals in homemade black pudding with organic foie gras, pastry 'moneybags' of seafood with lobster sauce (a signature dish) and twice-baked Yorkshire Cheddar soufflé with pickled beetroot.
Evening meals in the restaurant up the stakes with a procession of more ambitious ideas like seared wild brill fillet with asparagus, seared queenie scallops and light vanilla jus, roast loin of Bolton Abbey lamb with caramelised lamb's sweetbreads and thyme mash, and frozen Granny Smith parfait with apple crisps and apple coulis. The wine list is a stupendous 250-bin stunner, with France and Italy as the front runners and ample choice by the glass. Ask about the regular tastings in the Wine Cave.
