3rd visit to the Angel & Royal and again same experience. This really is a throw-back to the days of honest, professional British service at its very best. All of the staff without fail were pleasant and offered a return smile without hesitation. Our room was again spotless, with the split level design much appreciated, although be careful if the lights are out! Choice at breakfast very varied, with the ham & eggs on the second morning a welcome change to the full English.
One reason for visiting Grantham for the weekend is to take advantage of the excellent rail links. However, an intended day trip to Leeds was unachievable due to Network Rails usual maintenance, which would have turned a 1 hour journey into a 2 and half hour bus ride. Instead went on the bus to Lincoln. Journey takes you through some interesting and very quaint Lincolnshire villages. Shopping much better there than Grantham, which is suffering from the high street closures. However, there remain several friendly and good standard pubs (amazingly cheap compared to our Essex/London prices) & restaurants in Grantham to visit.
Thanks to the Angel & Royal for another excellent stay. less
