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.

Really lovely restaurant, but the food whilst nice quality was I thought pretty bland. I had for my main course salmon with lime & ginger cream sauce and it was fine - nice piece of salmon, plenty of cream sauce, but no hint of lime or ginger could I detect! Veg were in dishes to share, a nice selection and... More

Forget Damien Hirst - think Keith and Carl Tomlinson! Don't understand how 31 Excellent, 1VG, 1 Good make the Angel only #11 in Ilfracombe - there can't be 10 better in Devon, let alone Ilfracombe! So here is another Excellent to try to elevate The Angel to the very top. This unpretentious, unheralded gem has been housed in a former... More

This was our second time at The Angel and it was fantastic. Food is amazing, service is brilliant and the atmosphere is warm and homely. The folk that run the place do this as a hobby but could teach others a thing or two on how to run a first class restaurant. Brillisnt

A family run restaurant in an old converted butchers. Excellent service and home from home cuisine. Imperative to book as they are not always open. Highly Recommendable Richard

What can you say, this is what the British food should be all about. The service was 10 out of 10 the food was 10 out of 10, the care and attention was top notch can,t wait to go back. They do it for a hobby and they put 100% effort into everything. Thank you very much.

We use to think that this restaurant was a whole food place but went on recommendation about 2years ago. Since then a meal there is a must every time we visit Ilfracombe. It's a quirky place, formerly a butcher's shop, with lots of 'object' decrating shelves- perfect for I-Spy! But the food...it's Devine! Home cooked to order with vegetables that... More

We visit the Angel every year when our family go down to Devon and would never miss it. Great food (especially the cheese soufflé or the filet steak), great setting in an old converted butcher's shop, brilliant friendly service from the couple who run it, and a nice cosy atmosphere. They only serve 6 tables per night, so make sure... More
