The Angel Hotel, Abergavenny, Monmouthshire
This former coaching inn is a handsome Georgian property right in the middle of town, just a short stroll from Abergavenny Castle; so here’s a nice thing to do – go and look around the museum and grounds and then come here for lunch.
Abergavenny has earned itself something of a reputation as a foodie town so it’s important that they get that bit right, and here they certainly have; the ethos is one of simple, good quality food made using the freshest and finest ingredients. You can eat in the Oak Room, which is the dining room, or in the Fox Hunter Bar where locals and visitors rub shoulders and it’s all very amicable.
The menu covers pretty much everything; sandwiches, sharing platters, seafood, pasta, salads, and of course meaty delights such as dry-aged steak, beefburgers, and grilled gammon. There’s even a gluten free menu and vegetarians have a very good selection to choose from. The Oak Room dinner menu is similar to the lunch menu though with a few mouth watering additions like Whole Dover Sole Meuniere, new Potatoes and Bearnaise Sauce, and something you don’t see much these days, a Mixed Grill of Lamb: Loin, Bestend, Chop, Kidney, Sweetbread, Scrumpet, Mergues Sausage, Roast Onion and Chips.
Drop in any time of day though as there’s an all day menu and they serve award winning high tea; admire the contemporary art on the walls, and at weekends take in the live entertainment. Dogs are allowed in the Foxhunter Bar and the little courtyard out the back.
