My review is under 'hotel ' but we ate in the Eaterie as we needed a fairly speedy meal and got it. Nothing second rate. Lovely crisp white napkins.

We needed a light lunch on impulse, during a busy day and we were not disappointed! We have known the Angel through all its transformations and like the singing modern set up, even though we are in our dotage! Eighteen months ago the cooking had deteriorated but today the Angel was flying high! I chose bruschetta with courgette and parmesan... More

One not to be missed, this is a table service cocktail bar, although the service was a little slow, there are plenty of historical aviation items to be looked at in the wonderful cellar setting of the hotel, we would love to come back here again, a very special place.

A lovely relaxing lunch in a great venue. Met some business friends for lunch. Good variety on the menu and some excellent cheap set meal options. Tried the Cod main and Italian Meringue dessert. Both were excellent. Service was unrushed and attentive Would definitely go back again

I took my wife to the Angel Hotel for afternoon tea on her birthday. I prebooked an early afternoon table for two. The tea is served in a relaxing lounge area on sofas and low tables.

The Angel has always been a favourite with my partner and I for special occasions, and the good food, fine wine and luxurious ambiance has always been worth the expense.

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.
