Review on The Angel
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. In September 2018 the inn was taken over by Michelin-starred chef Michael Wignall formally of Gidleigh Park, together with his wife Johanna, along with James and Josephine Wellock.
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.
Expect the likes of hand dived scallops, textures of cauliflower, polonaise and curry or local fowl terrine, crisp chicken, plum and pickled mushrooms amongst the starters. Main courses usher in aged rump of Yorkshire beef, Oyster mushroom fondant and chips or from the sea Cornish plaice, tempura, hash potato, tomato and shellfish sauce. To conclude there are tempting desserts like bread and butter terrine, anglaise, biscuit and rum ice cream or homemade treacle tart with Dark Horse brewery ice cream.
The Angel was the proud recipient of a prestigious Michelin star in the 2020 edition of the Guide.
