This pretty building isn’t the original Angel Inn, which was a timber framed building, but is yet another design by the architect William Sugden. Built in 1870, it is an L-shaped structure with one entrance on the Market Place and the other on the adjecent street (no longer in use).
Looking at the 1881 census return it was ran by a young unmarried man called Charles E Platt and by accident I also found an old 1834 trade directory for the town which lists Martha Sutton as the Landlady (this would of been the timber framed Angel Inn).
I’m unable to find when it stopped trading as the Angel Inn but I do remember it as a Yates Wine Lodge.
Although no longer a public house, at least it is still in use and well cared for by its current owners, Coral Bookmakers.
The Building was granted a Grade II listing on 14 October 1996.
