Reviews - The Angel Inn

3Self Classified Inn Ratings explained
172 Long Ashton Road Long Ashton, Bristol, BS41 9LT
The Angel is a historic village pub surrounded by farmland, next to a 600 year old church, and yet it is ideally situated two miles from Bristol city centre and its business heartland and fifteen minutes drive from Bristol Airport. Half an hours walk away is the newly developed waterfront. The Angel has a high reputation for its food, and has won many recent awards for its ales. The good news is that it is now able to offer five rooms for bed and breakfast accommodation. Very close are some of Bristol’s finest features, including the Avon Gorge with Brunel’s famous suspension bridge and the SS Great Britain, Ashton Court, Clifton Downs, several golf courses, and many more. The Angel dates from 1495, and has been the village pub in Long Ashton for several hundred years. It is a family run pub, and since Sian took it over in 2003 has earned great popularity with both the locals and the business community. It is often used for business meetings, weddings, dinner parties and other celebrations. For bird lovers it is a listed breeding site for swallows who reside and nest in the adjoining barn between April and October every year.

An excellent British inn
Having stayed at The Angel twice now, I can thoroughly recommend the hotel to anyone who likes their pubs to be welcoming, friendly and cosy, their service to be attentive without being intrusive, their bedroom to be homely and not like every other shoe box in a hotel chain and their food to be satisfying, hearty and flavoursome.
When travelling on business, I am not looking for a hotel with a pool, a gym , a sauna, a huge flat screen TV in the room and in reception and with a restaurant and a bar full of similar displaced souls staying for business purposes. I want a bed, somewhere to get washed, some nice food and a feeling of friendliness and acceptance by both the staff and the locals whose pub it is.
The Angel delivers these things admirably. The building is old and the bedrooms are, therefore, of unusual shapes and sizes. However, the two I have stayed in were very comfortable, clean, tidy, and with clean washing facilities. I only wish I could say the same for every hotel chain room I had stayed in over the last twenty five years.
The bar is what I describe as a traditional pub - lowish ceiling, floor on different levels in different seating areas, many different types of beers, ciders and lagers from which to choose. Many of these are from smaller breweries and are guest beers of the highest quality. The staff are attentive and the locals are warm without being over friendly. I prefer to sit and have a drink or eat with a book, to wind down at the end of a day's travelling or working. All areas of the bar, the rooms attached for eating specifically and the outside areas in the yard behind the pub are all great places to do this. If, however, you are the type to stand at a bar and share the craic with whoever is there, it is clear that this is also welcomed.
The food is just lovely. It does not pretend to be anything other than classic dishes, done really well and served in good quantities. Think traditional English food and then think of it done like your mum used to do. Or not, if she wasn't that good a cook. Because the kitchen staff at The Angel know what they are doing and do it very well.
Long Ashton is just far enough out of Bristol - about six miles, I reckon - to be a village. It does not, therefore, have the attractions of a city centre and you should not be expecting clubs, casinos, cinemas and theatres. However, the village is close enough to Bristol centre to make the journey easy, as long as you are aware of the practical jokes that Bristol City Council have built into the road signage. Trying to keep track of road directions using only the signposts does not work; I advise having one of the following: a passenger who can see road signs that require more than a glance to notice and read, clairvoyance or a sat nav.

Local overnight stay
We stayed in room 3 and on arrival (in the bar) we were met and greeting very warmly. We were immediatley shown to our room and ordered a taxi as we had a function to attend (the reason for staying over). Although we didnt spend much time in the room it was very comfortable and a very good size. The bathroom was clean and modern and there was tea, coffee and a nice touch some bottled water. We were given clear instructions for our return to get back in after midnight. We had a fantastic night at our function (40's fancy dress in case your interested) and in the morning had a really tasty breakfast. The pub is really good value and is close by for Bristol. One small but interesting point, if you are visiting Bristol on a Sunday, try park down on the streets near the harbour, the parking is free on a Sunday, a point we discovered by chance, you dont need to pay for the car parks!

Lovely place
We found this room at the last minute (thanks to me being completely disorganised) and fortunately for me it was absolutely perfect being far enough out of Bristol City centre to feel nice and rural but still close enough to be convenient. The Angel Inn is a lovely old building run by friendly and helpful staff and the room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The only issue was just how easy it was to hear people in the room next door coughing and snoring. Apart from that it was perfect and the bed was so comfortable it didn't prevent us from getting a good night's sleep.
