Our meal was good, typical pub fare, nice pub atmosphere. Our "waitress" was just awful, she looked like a bulldog on a very bad day, we seemed to be a nuisance! Her tip reflected her attitude! what a shame for a very nice pub w/ good food.

We had lunch and were very impressed with both the shepherd's pie and the fish & chips. Service was efficient and friendly,even as the place was starting to get quite busy. The building itself is worth a look around due to its historic architecture and decorations.

Small quarters but great food and drink. Can be a little loud if you are sitting in the front room where the bar is located. Sits on a side street behind the main street so it's a good place to grab a bite while you are shopping!

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.

Dear Brandon K; Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Yes, that is exactly what we are "Feels like a genuine British Pub". The Olde Angel Inn was built by the British way back in 1789 and was rebuilt after the war of 1812 again by the British in 1815. We love to keep that "Olde English"... More
