See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
This historic town centre pub, for many years known simply as the Angel, consists of a rabbit warren of separate rooms, snugs and bars, linked by a long central passageway. The building dates from medieval times and records show that there was an inn called the Archangel in the centre of town in 1311. In 2008 the pub underwent a massive renovation before re-opening, changing its name to the Archangel. The layout consists of a main public bar, a separate coffee bar, three cosy snugs, all on the ground level, plus a mezzanine restaurant and, upstairs and towards the front of the building, the Library, a sort of chill-out room, and the Naval Room, which is for events and food. At the rear of the pub is a courtyard enclosed within high walls. The Archangel provides accommodation, ten rooms in all. The pub is open all-day, everyday. There are four real fires, with one outside, in the courtyard. Part of the Butcombe Pubs and Inns group since late 2022
