Quick bite

Been here before with different cook, standards seem to have slipped sadly, only 2 eating yet waited ages for a burger, that looked like youd make at home, nothing special but £7 for it.. Probably wont eat here again.

Legendry rock pub in central notts...a must visit for any proper UK punk/rock/metal historian! With the music venue room upstairs, you can often find a cool band playing on a weekend night, with decent ticket prices and well priced bar below...a friendly place to drink a few before venturing onward or stick around for decent jukebox and happy crowd.

Bit too cliquey for me I'm afraid, prefer quirky bars so was disappointed as it's been a good 20 years since i went in the angel. Sadly too old to enjoy it now.

I don't think the management will mind me saying this is a spit and sawdust pub, and all the better for it. If your're looking for a wetherspoons-a-like look elsewhere. A good old fashioned proper pub that supports music and its customers, good beer, great staff, and a real atmosphere. Certainly One of the last proper pubs left in Nottingham.

Bought 2 vouchers for a 2 course Gourmet Meal for 2 at Jareds at The Old Angel and went on Saturday night with wife, daughter & son in law. On entering I was filled with disgust at the state of the place. Every seat was ripped, the decor was the tattiest I've ever seen and the place stunk of cigarette... More

This used to be a good pub 6-7 years ago but I won't go back again if someone paid me! The manager is shocking! His attitude stinks and starts petty little arguments over pointless things. The prices for beer are extortionate for what you get anyway and there are plenty of better drinking establishments in Nottingham and Hockley. So save... More

It has the vibes of an old, urban landmark. I encountered an authentic, but pleasant enough interior, populated by an array of friendly characters of all types, hard music, and a bar adorned cleverly with latest news headlines. Service was really nice. Overall, a somewhat shrill experience, but likable. I think I'll be back there.

From the outside, a tired, worn down place. When you get inside, culture shock as there's not a lot to indicate externally this Rock / Punk? themed boozer. Fairly quiet when I went in, early afternoon, looked to be mainly students in. Does karaoke and not surprisingly Bands, accent on the Rock side, heavy metal it seemed to me from... More
