Went on a Saturday night, great service and a real nice atmosphere. It is the sort of place you could take your Mum and Dad or have a romantic meal with a wife or girlfriend. Cannot put my finger on the atmosphere but I just really likes it. 3 course each, a mice bottle of Malbec and complimentary coffees for... More

We booked a table at Angry Alys to celebrate her graduation. It was our first time in the restaurant and we were treated like family. The service was great with a complimentary small bottle of bubbly wine for my daughter and a jug of iced water to start. The food was excellent, we tried Greek Lamb, Steak,and I had chicken... More

We were disappointed considering the good reviews. My husbands starter was tasteless and to be fair it was taken off the bill. Mains were nice enough but my dessert was so cold it was difficult to taste the flavours and get the spoon in! Clearly it had been taken straight out of a very cold fridge. Good price but would...

Visited Angry Alys with my wife and parents on a Saturday night. First impressions are of a small, friendly restaurant with a wine bar in the front. Gordon Ramsey would approve of a relatively small menu - about 6 starters and 10 mains plus a few specials - and the quality of the food (Greek style lamb, piri piri pork... More

The name conjures up the wrong impression. This is not a "greasy spoon" and none of the staff are angry. On the contrary the owner who obviously enjoys his job as friendly barman, waiter and general all rounder is really pleasant. His partner Aly is the chef and she is also really friendly. She came to our table to check... More

Looking for different restaurant we came across Angry Alys. What a gem. Good service very good food and an excellent stylish host. Only had time for a main course but when back in the area we will revisit. Nothing too much trouble proactively offered free tasting of wine choices.

The welcome was very special, and this continued throughout our meal.although it is called Angry Aly's it is far from the truth, Aly's cooks the food with perfection, and is so friendly, whilst Rod serves the food, and the waitress does a excellent job of serving the food. Thank you.
