About the award

Introduced in 2017, the AA Restaurant with Rooms of the Year award recognises an AA-rated guest accommodation that is also a dining destination.

The Angel at Hetton

At its heart, the Angel is a roadside inn, easily recognised by generations of diners. Parts of the building date back to the 15th century. Now the recently refreshed and updated interiors are the perfect setting for the famous culinary skills of Michael Wignall. Food is obviously a highlight of any stay, and Michael’s cooking is showcased through both carte and tasting menu options.

There is a deftness and lightness to his dishes that demonstrate first rate cooking and produce. The large, stylish bedrooms across the road in a converted barn have magnificent views over Rylstone Fell and beyond, while the rooms in the main building are comfortably contemporary.
