The Angel Inn
Polstead Street, Stoke-by-Nayland, Colchester, CO6 4SA,
England, United Kingdom
Soft lamplight glows in the windows of this 16th-century inn deep in 'Constable country'. Spruced up by Exclusive Inns, the bar divides into two. Find carved beams, open brickwork, log fires, polished wood tables, chesterfields and wing chairs, fresh flowers and candles, fine prints and paintings, and a few antique pieces to add to the appeal. The Angel fills early and menus include a good value lunchtime 'classics' choice – sausages with mash and onion gravy; battered haddock – and an imaginative carte. Tuck into Denham Estate venison scotch egg; pork belly with Madeira broth; treacle tart with white chocolate ice cream. Eat in the bar, the galleried restaurant (once a brewhouse) or at laid tables on the terrace at the back on warm summer evenings. Cosy, inviting, boutique-style bedrooms are individually furnished; some have pale wonky beams, all have antique pieces on seagrass floors, designer lamps and gilded mirrors, fresh flowers and big bathrooms. Go for a superior room if you fancy a king-size bed and a sofa. Flatford Mill and beautiful Dedham Vale are a short drive away.
