“First class visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2011

Could not fault the service, room, meals or friendlyness and attention of the staff at The Angel. Had some wonderful meals, expertly cooked and beautifully presented. The room was delightfully quirky but very comfortable and spotless. All the staff were very helpful and attentive, but discreet.
Would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: try the mussels

The Angel offers characterful and comfortable acommodation; the housekeeping was excellent. In a very quiet, quaint village overlooking the beautiful Dedham Vale, it is perfectly situated to explore the many attractions this area has to offer - from coast to culture!. The food was a real treat - certainly comparable or better than some celebrity 'Gastro pubs' we have visited in London. We could not fault the friendly service of the Angel staff who are very hard-working and accommodating to their guests. Although certain areas of the hotel were looking a little tired, a programme of refurbishment is underway. Nikki and her enthusiastic team (a special thank you to Mark) and her lovely family members went out of their way to make our stay memorable and enjoyable; we shall definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Try the Angel moules - fabulous!

We used this hotel in January whilst moving house, the rooms are superb and the attention meets this word too. Again we returned this week for a retirement meal and the food was excellent and again the attention paid by the staff was second to none. The new landlady has pulled this hotel back from the depths and we hope it continues back to its former glory.

We often visit the beautiful surrounding areas of Stoke By Nayland and frequent a majority of local eateries and drinking houses. we were recommended by a local chap to try The Angel Inn in Stoke By Nayland as it had a superb reputation for food and hospitality.
All I can say is WOW!! it was so nice to see a great sunday lunch served with proper fresh vegetables and mouth watering cauliflower cheese. The slow roasted rib of beef melted in your mouth. what made it so special, apart from the extra veg and gravy offered throughout the meal was the friendly staff. The Lady in charge, Nikki was a buddle of fun and put herself out to make sure everyone was happy. We are due to go back in April and stay as we did not realise they had such lovely bedrooms. CAN'T WAIT .

Just been in for a meal at the Angel Inn with all our family to celebrate a family birthday. Even though the pub was busy the customer service was second to none. Our kids were offered crayons and colouring books when we got there which kept them quite for the whole evening. Staff were eager to help and nothing was too difficult.
Thank you everyone at the Angel and we will be back for many more meals to come.
Some family also stayed in the hotel which is beautifully furnished, clean and quiet. They would like to recommend this Inn to anyone who is looking for somewhere to stay in the area.
