I booked a table here on valentine’s day, we were staying nearby and wanted a pub that was offering a normal menu! The pub was old and quaint and had a great atmosphere, it was very busy as the rugby was on but we had our table reserved in the dining area. The staff were a bit slow but the...

We went there to have a lunchtime meal. The food available was very good and very reasonably priced. It is a comfortable pub, warm an friendly. It is also dog friendly, which was one of the main reasons for going. I would recommend this Inn for food.

We recently had lunch here having been let down badly by the 'posh' place not too far away!! The fact that this obviously wasn't our first choice of place to eat made absolutely no difference to the Manager at the Angel. In fact she could not have been more helpful we landed there just before the full lunch menu was...

A week before Christmas, 6 of us who had just done a 7 mile walk decided to have our group Christmas lunch at The Angel in Long Ashton. Unbelievably there seemed to be only one person on duty behind the bar serving all customers both drinks, taking their food orders and serving them! However, it all worked perfectly. Everyone enjoyed...

I stayed here for one night, grabbing an evening meal and cooked breakfast the following day. The stay was very enjoyable - the pub has a lovely atmosphere and whilst it was pretty busy for a Monday night, the service was very quick. The food came in exceptionally large portions, was tasty and well cooked. The room was large, with...

We stayed overnight before a day out in Bristol and it was excellent. Lovely old pub unspoiled by corporate themes. Very helpful staff, spotlessly clean and a nice meal and drinks. We enjoyed ourselves and had hope to add an additional night but it was fully booked which was a shame. We will go back. We like pubs with character....

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
