Hetton is a small hamlet, approximately six miles from the historic town of Skipton in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The Angel Inn can be found in the centre of the village.
The Angel Inn at Hetton is widely regarded as the UK's original gastropub. The ancient inn has origins which date back to the 15th century, forming the basis of hundreds of years of delicious dining and drinking history. In recent years it has held the reputation of being the destination establishment, in one of the most exquisite corners of the North Yorkshire Dales. Famous for its food as well as its warm, welcoming atmosphere - it has maintained a strong following among locals as well as with customers from all over the world.
In September 2018 Michael Wignall took the helm as Chef Patron, and delivers food that wows on every plate. His ever-evolving style creates unique dishes full of flavour, underpinned by a contemporary, less formal approach to fine cuisine. Describing his food as 'modern, technical and meaningful', each element brings flavour or texture, enticing diners to experience new combinations and ingredients.
