Very Expensive, Poorly Executed.

Popped in for a drink and decided to have a quick sarnie - the menu declared that they served 'til 21.30 but when we asked (@21.00) they said that they weren't serving but would accommodate a sandwich request! We duly ordered a staek sarnie (thankfully only one!) which cost £12+! Plus it was... read more

This seems to be an "in" place in Burford. The mels are high standard for a pub. We ate scallops perfectly seared, delectable ! Good care of the waiters, good wine. A place to go back to.

The Angel has long been one of our favourite places to eat in Burford so it was our first choice when meeting up with old friends we hadn't seen in 5 years! Our daughter, their goddaughter came between her work shifts and was absolutely starving so ordered the burger. It was extremely busy with diners and rugby watchers, but the... More

Vegetables and roasted potatoes were perfectly cooked, meat wonderful and tender, gravy was SO tasty... and everything was plentiful! The atmosphere at The Angel was warm and welcoming, service was friendly and fast. Happy to highly recommend a meal at The Angel in... More

Thank you for your review, although I am afraid your last comment, 'lacking the personal touch' is very hard for me to read......I served you throughout your entire visit, and am the owner of the pub, and I feel we did go above and beyond to try and make your visit enjoyable. As is the case with most popular venues,... More

The pub was nice and had a welcoming open fire. The landlord originally lived near we live now, so we all had a catch up time. Very friendly place. We had a few drinks in there and they were really helpful about place to visit.

Had an extremely poor meal at The Angel. We were excited to return as we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves the last time we were here. But unfortunately it did not live up to expectation. We were seated at the back of the restaurant where it was extremely dark and not really conducive to a family lunch but it's an old building... More

Thank you for your comments. I want to offer a heartfelt apology from myself, I remember your table well, and I know you did have a wait, and a gap between yours and your child's meal. In our defence, our usual chef was not in the kitchen - our head chef has been off having an operation, and on the... More

As there is no 'Good' rating I have stated 'Average' but I do think it is better than 'Average', however not necessarily 'very good' I booked a table for dinner with friends; the restaurant was very flexible as we changed the date then turned up late! A simple and understandable menu, the right level of attention from staff, decent wine... More
