Lovely traditional pub

Lovely traditional pub on a beautiful spot on the river. Food and service were fantastic - rich hearty food the pate in particular was very enjoyable! May be worth booking in advance for large groups. Would definitely revisit next time I am in the area.

Came for a pub lunch on a Saturday and it was okay. My fish and chips were pretty good, the girlfriend's cajun chicken was nice and the setting is lovely. But the service wasn't great. Sat outside by the river on a table right next to the bridge. Went up to the bar to order our food and drink and... More

We went to The Angel as a group of 6 for lunch. Bar staff were pleasant enough but slow and, as it turns out, didn't take our order properly. Some of the order came very quickly while the rest didn't turn up at all and we had to demand a refund. The waitress was willing but rather clueless. All in... More

The location and the building are very traditional and quaint. The food was nice but could have been more special. The soup was yummy but the bread was just plain sliced. The only veggie option was a standard pasta and veg. Delicious deserts tho!

Nice little ride up from Reading to have a couple of pints of cider by the river. Room for a couple of bikes at the end of the table and not glared at too much for wearing lycra! Great spot by the river to watch the world go by

Only had a drink at the Angel sat outside in the early evening sunshine watching the boats go up and down the Thames. It was quite idyllic and im struggling to think of a better location

But that's about it. The food is not great and keep an eye on the bar bill. Sometimes they're a bit careless. But it's kind of a Henley icon so still worth a visit.
