The Angel at Hetton is widely credited with changing the face of pub grub; it began serving quality, meals made with freshly prepared, seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients in the days when most country pubs were still churning out chicken in a basket.
You can dine in the relaxed Bar Brasserie or book a table in the slightly more formal Restaurant before retiring to the comfort of one of nine beautifully-appointed guest bedrooms.
Wherever you choose to eat, you’re in for a gastronomic treat. Meat and game are sourced from the Yorkshire Dales and Lancashire, fresh fish comes from the East and West coasts, and legumes and soft fruit from local farms.
This multi-award winning country inn is located in the the village of Hetton near Skipton and enjoys wonderful views across Rylstone Fell. It’s a great base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales, not to mention a memorable setting for family parties, weddings and corporate functions. The team pride themselves on their flexible, approach to meeting customers’ needs.
This ancient pub dates back to the 15th century and was almost certainly a drovers’ inn. Most of what you see today was added in the early 18th century, when the inn served nearby farming communities. It became known as a traditional dining pub in the 1960s but, when Denis and Juliet Watkins bought it in 1983, they kick-started a cultural revolution that led to the birth of what most of us know as the ‘gastropub’.
Opposite the inn is an attractive barn conversion offering a choice of two studio bedrooms and three suites, one of which extends over two floors. The rooms have a cosy, country feel, in keeping with their Dales barn setting, together with all luxurious finishing touches that you’d expect from a boutique hotel.
Next door to the Inn is Sycamore Bank, a sympathetically designed modern development comprising four contemporary bedrooms, each of which is decorated and furnished to the same high standard as the rooms in the barn.
