“Lacock and the Sign of the Angel go hand-in-hand: the ‘perfect’ English village and the epitome of the medieval English inn – half-timbered without; great log fires, oak panelling, beamed ceilings, polished antiques and splendid old beds within. Old fashioned and cosy, including the dining room, where excellent traditional English fare is served by chatty local staff, adding to the feeling that staying at the Angel is a bit like standing on a rock in a rushing river.”
Written by George Pownall
“Nestling in the heart of the ancient village of Lacock, the Angel dates from the 15th Century when it was probably purpose built as an Inn. With major alterations in the 16th and 17th centuries the Angel is thought to have become a wool merchant's house.
The name, ‘The Sign of the Angel’ derives from the gold ‘Angel’ coin that was current at the time.
Today the Angel has returned to its origins as an inn with wonderful English home cooking and snug bedrooms; an ideal retreat for a romantic weekend, or a haven of peace and quiet after a stressful business day.”
