Sign of the Angel

Romantic inn steeped in history

Visitors flock to the National Trust village of Lacock for its cobbled streets and stone cottages, which have graced the screens of many a costume drama – including Downton Abbey and Pride and Prejudice.

In-the-know gastronomes make a beeline for Sign of the Angel, a 15th-century coaching inn that oozes olde-worlde charm while serving up modern British cooking.

Head chef Dan Mack seeks out sustainable produce from farmers, growers and butchers, which he uses to craft dishes such as pan-seared Cornish scallops with a spicy crab bisque, and herb-crusted lamb rump with carrot puree, spring greens, and lamb and rosemary croquettes.

Stop by during the day to take advantage of Dan’s excellent dishes with a tempting lunch offer of three courses for £35. Or make a night of it and book one of the five homely rooms – each with original period features – for a quintessentially English country inn experience.

Trencherman’s tip: The relaxing pub is a charmingly romantic spot all year round. In summer, while away the hours in the sun-trap garden devouring small plates or a cream tea. Winter provides the opportunity to cosy up by the open fire and dine by candlelight.
