Jayne and Martyn
Well-known in the area for many years for providing the highest standards of hospitality, Jayne and Martyn are embarking on their latest venture in the heart of historic Ludlow.
Whilst continuing to run Cicchetti (the town’s favourite tiny watering hole) with their oldest son, they are making the trek all of two doors up to create the perfect setting for a Victorian styled wine bar.
Step into The Angel and step back in time, where you can enjoy the largest range of wines on tap for miles around.
History of The Angel building
Located on Broad Street in Ludlow, which has been described as “one of the most memorable streets in England,” The Angel has a wealth of history.
The Angel Inn was a fine example of a 16th century coaching inn, offering rooms and stabling for wealthy travellers and their horses. Prior to the advent of the railway, the only way to get to around was by coach and horses. By 1822, it only took 27 hours to travel to London!
In 1802 Lord Nelson received the freedom of Ludlow after his victory in the Battle of the Nile and addressed the jubilant crowds from one of the beautiful bow windows on the first floor. However, what the locals may not have realised was that he was staying there with both his mistress Emma Hamilton, and her husband!
In recent years, The Angel Inn has been sympathetically redeveloped into a variety of flats and houses.
At The Angel, the aim is to bring back some of the good old-fashioned hospitality that would have been enjoyed by Regency travellers of the time.
