We live close to the Angel and have used it regularly in its different guises for over 20 years. The food is fine and the atmosphere is good. They used to offer table service just in the restaurant area towards the back. Then, a few months ago, they changed to offering table service throughout the pub (apart from a few... More

The quality of the food was very good, well presented and plenty of it. Our visit was on Valentines night and the restaurant was full, this did not effect the quality of... More

Went here for a meal with my wife and two friends. I haven't been here for about 15 years when, to be honest, it was ok but fairly average family restaurant. We were greeted in a very friendly manner, ordered a drink, nice friendly, humorous service from Niki who seemed able to gauge what type of customers we would be... More

We've been here a dozen times now - sometimes out in the lovely garden and sometimes inside. Every time we've been here the food has been lovely (good sized kids portions) and the service has been great too. Thx today to Niki for attentive service :-)

We had a very bad meal here a couple of years ago celebrating my birthday on Boxing Day [I had to put December 2014 as it was the only option]. Thank goodness my husband and I paid for the party's meal otherwise I would have been embarrassed asking my family to pay for a disaster of a meal. Nobody wanted... More

Having been recommended to dine here, when the opportunity arose we did. Boy how I wish we hadnt, from the start the attitude of the staff stunk, although allowances were made for the fact the place was fairly busy the overall first impression was NOT good. We persevered and ordered food, well for the majority of the party the results... More

Thank you for your review, we do offer full table service in all but 6 of our indoor tables situated in front of the bar. We also ensure that a team member is on hand at all times in each of our 4 restaurant service sections. We will also be offering table service in part of the garden this summer.... More
