It's a classic little pub with lots of character and excellent fare. It can be a little noisy in there sometimes during the busiest part of the year but it only helps to re-create the feel of a true British/Irish/Scottish pub. For a guaranteed good choice, try the fish and chips.

We enjoy the Olde Angel Inn because of its unique charm and great menu. Lots of comfort food and the steak and kidney pie is as good as my Grandmothers was! Lots beer choices and people are friendly. A good choice when in town!

This is a terrific traditional British pub in NOTL. Very casual with a true pub atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The salads are quite large and fresh. The entree portions are huge. I had the Steak Guinness and Onion Pie which was so good. Others in my party ordered Fish and Chips, Meatloaf Wellington, and a Turkey Club with... More

Six of us dropped in after spending the day at Niagra site seeing and were seated right away. Liked the old pub feel to it when we walked in. The wait staff was friendly and fun. We asked to have some group pictures taken at the table and they were very accommodating, even photo bombing us :). Several got the... More

Went here on a recommendation & had a good fish & chip dinner. But, its nothing much more than a bar, so it has no ambiance & nothing to make one want to stay around any longer.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a few people, including our tour guide with Taste of the Town tours and B&B owner. We ate there on a Sunday evening and were greeted/seated within 30 seconds of arrival. Our waiter was highly attentive, as were all of the waiters/waitresses who passed by. Many of them stopping to ask us about... More

Even by pub food standards, the food was average. Beer, of course, was plentiful with a wide variety available. There were eight of us that made a reservation and we enjoyed the atmosphere. Four of us ordered the daily specials and four ordered from the main menu. The specials were much less than expected. So, it became our impression that... More

I will admit that we atte here on a very busy night. The fish and chips was average. We were stuck in the very back of the restaurant in a room with almost no atmosphere so we couldn't appreciate the age and history of the place.
