Lovely atmosphere, good food, wide selection of wines and not too expensive. The owner is a great character. I reccomend it.

Excellent service, very friendly and welcoming staff with delicious food! A particularly nice touch at the end of the meal when the chef, Aly, came out to meet us. Will definitely visit again.

Four of us ate here last night which was absolutely fab. Extremely tasty food, good and friendly service, they don't rush you but that's nice when you want to spend the evening somewhere. Lovely quirky atmosphere. Will definitely eat here again.

We ate here & I was extremely disappointed. The Garlic mushroom starter smelt of frying oil, dry & tasted similar. The main was not much better. The service was good but the Middle Aged barman with the shirt open to his naval should think about doing up a few buttons, especially when serving food.

Myself and my boyfriend have recently moved to the area and had a few drinks over several evenings during August. The welcome you get from Rod (front of house) is great, always paying attention to detail. We decided to book a table for my birthday and couldn't have been happier with the food, service and atmosphere. This is such a... More

We took our daughter and boyfriend to Angry Alys as a 21st birthday treat as our expectations were that it could provide a good choice of seafood. However apart from the Green Lipped Mussels and Seabass which both were both enjoyed by our party the remaining choices were limited but don't let this put you off from visiting this restuarant....

Went to Angry Alys only for the second time, again it was superb. I don't often write reviews cause I can't be bothered, but felt compelled to do so on this occasion. We stood at the bar for about an hour having a few drinks and chatting to the very good host Rod, prior to sitting down for a lovely... More

Had a wonderful meal here. There is a small menu, but the food on it is really good. Rod is a great host who can not do enough for you and allowed us to try several wines before choosing the one for the meal. Would definitely return.

I hade an excellent meal here. The menu is small but what we were given was of very high quality. There's a good selection of bottled ales as well, rare for a wine bar type place. My rating would have been a 5 but for the hopeless waitress. She had no clue about the menu and had to go and... More

Thanks for a lovely evening, we enjoyed the lovely food, relaxed atmosphere and super value for money for expertly cooked food. I just wish we all had more room for desert if our children's special surprise ice cream and creme brûlée were anything to go by. A great excuse to visit again en route from holiday inn ( another lovely... More
