“A coaching inn since 1726, the Angel has charming white and blue painted exterior, with a pavement terrace for sitting in the sun with a pint, and a lively contemporary interior for drinks, snacks and meals, with a large, more formal restaurant behind. Rooms are both upstairs and (preferable) across the road in a handsome, recently converted house, the Angel Ratcliffe, where they are light and bright, with views over the pretty garden and River Tyne. A useful address. Don’t miss Re, a great gift shop tucked away nearby.”

"It’s a handsome, stone-built house with a domestic feel, now prettily painted in cream and pale blue to match the inn opposite. Here the light-filled rooms are larger, calmer and brighter than those in the inn, with river views."
