Good beer garden, decent food

This is a good place for families and friends, brilliant that they now have regular live music. Great beer garden for the summer.

We visit regularly for lunch, the food and service is always excellent. We are usually looked after by the lovely Nikki, nothing is too much trouble. Would highly recommend.

Been going to the Angel for years but now think menu could do with a refresh. Good value for money. Pleasant staff. Probably due for a make over.

We didn't book a table so ended up sat by the door it was bad enough inconsiderate customers constantly leaving the door open but some of the staff were just as the bad. We waited around 50 minutes for our food, we had only ordered mains. The waiter was very helpful and I couldn't fault him. I felt the price... More

Fish and chips, ham and eggs ok but beware the oriental salmon. Salmon was burnt, no teriyaki sauce and included pickled cucumber instead of plain cucumber. Choice of desert was sold out, at 12 noon! Drinks especially soft drinks cost a fortune.

This place has a lovely atmosphere and the staff are most pleasant. However, today was not a good one tor us. The service was so slow. Not only that, but my pie, when it came was only luke-warm. In my experience this is not normal for this establishment. Maybe their new menu today had thrown everyone.

The main issue here was the very slow service. We were there 15mins before we even ordered our drinks. Having had a starter it was overall from our arrival almost an hour and half before we finally got our main course. We were not offered refill drinks, my chips were undercooked although the steak was very nice. We decided it... More
