Been here several times now and is always the same high standard. One of the house specials which we always have is the hot fish mousse for starters. Good honest home cooked food

As a couple or with a group of friends The Angel never fails to deliver and has been consistently excellent for years. The food is always delicious and freshly made to order. The prawn and parmesan crumble or hot fish mousse is a great way to start your dining experience, perhaps followed by fall apart braised venison or pork tenderloin... More

The welcome was very friendly and service good until we made a complaint about an over cooked steak, having ordered a medium rare and getting a medium to well done. The chef was quite rude saying the steak was still cooking as it was brought from the kitchen to the table. Been a waitress for over thirty years I know... More

We've been to the Angel several times, this time we went with a group of friends some of whom had never been there before. Everyone had a lovely evening and raved about their food choices. We couldn't fault anything, Every choice was brilliant. I can't praise it enough.

A great restaurant to let time go by, and enjoy great food served up by a couple of great people who love what they are doing, not too expensive but always a night to remember, must book for a meal, only opens for bookings

The Angel. Well deserved reviews. We only go there occassionly but we have a good time when we do go. Try it. Parking is available at Wilder Road car park over the road and the traffic lights have a pedestrian phase if you evoke it by pressing the button. It's well worth a visit.
