Review on The Angel of Corbridge
The Angel's proud boast is that it's not only the oldest hostelry in the historic town of Corbridge, but also the largest. A grand-looking coaching inn since 1726, it occupies a prime spot overlooking the River Tyne and boasts convivial bars (with local real ales and occasional live music evenings), a wood-panelled lounge for chilling out and reading the papers, and a smartly appointed restaurant.
The refurbished dining room is dominated by its handsome beamed roof, and its bare brick walls are festooned with paintings by local artists. Easy daytime offerings such as Thai fishcakes with stir-fried vegetables give way to more ambitious evening dishes along the lines of salmon and scallop terrine with dill crème fraîche or Northumbrian game terrine with red onion marmalade, ahead of char-grilled local ribeye steak or baked cod with chorizo and cherry tomatoes on braised fennel. To conclude, perhaps sticky toffee pudding with toffee sauce, lime and basil pannacotta or dark chocolate torte with raspberry compote.
