The Angel Inn was situated on The Square. This pub is now in residential use.
A grade-II* listed timber framed former Inn of about 1550 re-fronted late 17th century possibly the same time as the first floor fireplace dated 1672. This Inn was at one time three licensed premises having an ale house on the first floor, a gambling den on the second and a house of male entertainment on the top floor.
