A cosy and traditional pub at the end of Long Ashton village, it has a cosy country pub ambience to it with horse brasses tacked to the black beams and a real fire blazing away. The menu offered a decent selection of “pub grub” dishes, and we both opted for the pies which came with either chips or crushed potatoes...

Went last night, it is game fortnight at the Angel. I had the duck comfit and it was superb. I would recommend it. I would suggest keeping it on the menu, it was delicious. Food is always good but I think the game dishes were a welcome addition.

After a sponsored walk at Ashton Court we needed a decent pub which served hearty food and was dog friendly. We found The Angel Inn and are so glad we did! It is small and welcoming, feeling just as a good old fashioned pub should. The menu is brief but why have multiple options when you serve such an impressive...

I went here a couple of weeks ago for a Girls night meal out. The menu is a bit limiting, both for main courses and puddings (and the puddings are quite expensive), but what there is, is excellent - I can thoroughly recommend the pie! Parking is a nightmare as there isn't really any, but I would still say make...

Always packed, love the local feel. Dogs welcome and the rooms are just great. The village is a great funnel into Ashton Court and the common. Travelling as a single female is not a problem, always welcomed in.

Stayed overnight at the angel inn and was really impressed. The room was comfortable and has everything you need. I was also quite surprised that you couldn't hear any noises in the pub. The food was also great; and to top it off, the price of the room was very good! Also in terms of the location, Bristol is close...

Called in after a walk around Ashton Court for refreshment. This is a dog friendly pub. We were glad to know that as our puppy is a bit yippy. Nice pint of Greene King London Glory bitter, consumed in a sheltered courtyard at the rear. This is an historic pub that dates back to the 15th century. The placard at...

I met a friend here for lunch. They have a sitting out area for the supper which is lovely. Inside there are different seating areas breaking up the room nicely. We ordered sandwiches and chips. The chips were the best I've had in ages. Worth the trip alone! Our sandwiches came with salad. The salad was good and had a...

And it was unchanged, as far as I could tell, the inside just as I remembered it. Which is rare these days. They seemed to be having some improvements done in the outside courtyard, but it was great to find an old inn without the heart and soul ripped out. I only had a drink on this occasion but will...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Angel Inn is a traditional english pub with a warming atmosphere; providing great food, real ales, accommodation and a variety of events throughout the year. The earliest records for this building date back to 1495 when it became the Church House. It was used as a sort of parish hall for meetings and social events, the most important being the 'Church Ale'. This was held several times a year, whereby church wardens sold food and ale to raise funds for the church, together with dancing, plays and other festivities. This building gained the name "The Angel Inn" or "The Sign Of The Angel" in 1912. Long Ashton has always been popular with Bristol visitors and it was no different in the 18th Century when young men came to take part in contests to win money or goods, usually a fine beaver hat or a pair of buckskin breeches. The stage would have been set up in the cobbled courtyard, which even today is the scene of many an interesting night. According to tradition the local justices also met at The Angel Inn in the room now known as the Smoke Room. The vaulted cellar beneath The Angel Inn served as the village lock up where trouble makers and those convicted of minor offences could be imprisioned for a few days. Others would be held in custody before being sent for trial or while they awaited transport to the Bridewell at Shepton Mallett. The Angel Inn has played an important part in the history of the village. Both the Inn, which still has its original oak roof and the outbuilding to the rear are regarded as being of special architectural and historical interest and are Grade II listed buildings. The outbuilding is no longer used as a stable, but as a home for the swallows which can be seen from April to September coming and going in the hayloft, as they have done for centuries, which is always left open for them. The saddle hooks can still be seen in the walls and the drinking trough now houses flowers. Although there have been a few changes over the centuries, The Angel Inn is still a beautiful and impressive building, retaining many features such as the huge fireplace which is still the main heating for the building, wooden shutters and heavy oak doors. It is still the village pub with a long tradition of serving ale and traditional good food to the public. ... more   less
