The Angel Inn nestles below Cracoe Fell, above Wharfedale, just six miles into the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The interior is all nooks, crannies, oak beams and log fires in the winter. In the summer you can dine al fresco on the flagged forecourt overlooking Cracoe Fell. All studios and suites are individually furnished to a high standard and decorated to compliment the natural beauty, stone and beams of the ancient building. The Angel is most famous for its food which reflects British, French and Italian influeneces - wild turbot with fennel cream and beetroot reduction, for example, is superb.
The Angel Inn also has a Wedding Venue and Restaurant:
The Angel Inn is part of the following Inspirations:
"The Trip was – and still is - an unusual concept for a TV series which feeds off the genuine friendship between actors Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon. The first series took them round Britain, ending up in a final episode at the Angel Inn, Hetton. The (fictional) premise of the series was that Steve Coogan had been commissioned by the food supplement of a Sunday newspaper to review half a dozen restaurants and intended to take a self indulgent trip round the north of England with his food-loving American girlfriend. But when she leaves him to return to the States, Steve is faced with a week of meals on his own so he reluctantly calls Rob, the only person he can think of who will be available. Together they set off for a culinary adventure.
Over the course of six meals at six different restaurants Steve and Rob discussed the big questions of life over a series of six meals. In the final episode, after visiting Bolton Abbey, they rocked up for breakfast at The Angel at Hetton.
This ivy-clad wayside inn has just nine bedrooms with a “wine cave” located across the road. In its current form it has its origins as a fifteenth-century drovers’ inn. It first came to prominence as a pub for foodies in the 1960s when delicacies like deep fried whitebait and steak and chips made the Angel one of the first “destination” dining pubs. In 1983 Denis and Juliet Watkins took over The Angel Inn and did away with chips, beginning a British-wide revolution in pub food.
Denis also introduced one of the most extensive lists of wine by the glass in the country. When he died in 2004, obituaries referred to him as the “Godfather of the Gastropub”. His legacy continues and can be sampled still today before toddling upstairs to bed."
