Have been a regular to the angel for about ten years have seen some highs and some lows but our visit last night was our third exceptional visit this year. The staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgable. Throughout the meal our water jug was refilled regularly and our wine was kept topped up. We were given good advice regarding the... More

I in error placed my food review on the hotel part and not on the restaurant side. It still does not change my views but please read my review on the hotel site.

The restaurant was quite cold, with an icy blast coming through every time the outside door was opened. The two veggie dishes were just ok - nothing exceptional, to say the least. Steak was cooked as requested but the accompanying chips were dry and lacked flavour - tasting much like the Wetherspoons' offering. The two pork tenderloin dishes were very... More

My wife treated me to lunch out for my birthday. Service was excellent from the start, nothing too much trouble, happy to answer questions and make recommendations. Weren't kept waiting at all, attentive service, especially when I knocked my drink over, could have been more helpful. The food was superb. I had venison tartare to start, followed by the steak...

Our second visit to the Angel. The food is amazing. Great staff and a very interesting cellar bar. The Angel will become one of our "must return to" venues. Thanks to all the staff for making us feel so welcome.

This used to be a great place to eat and drink, now it is neither. Downstairs in the wingspan bar used to be a great place for fine wine and cocktails, I think they lost the manager or one of the barman there as the drinks menu is now considerably reduced. We went in for a drink and the wine... More

Supplier took me out to lunch. Each Christmas we try a different place in town. I've not been to the Angel for months so we gave it a go. The starter wasn't cooking, it was an assembly operation of a minute fillet of fish, bottled beetroot, jarred mayonnaise - completely tasteless. Main course steak was cooked as ordered but it...

Description
The Angel Eaterie has many admirers and is a popular destination for Suffolk locals. The art filled dining room providing a gallery for the creative talents of the kitchen. The dishes are modern and predominantly British but, the Head Chef continually surprises with a curious twist of something deliciously different. Fresh local produce is sourced from surrounding market gardeners and pheasant, venison or fish will always depend on what's available for the menu that day. The breads baked in house are testament to the care taken to achieve that special taste; dip into the olive oil then take your pick of the 30 varieties of quality wines all served by the glass and wait for further temptations. The Angel Eaterie is open all day for food & drink.
