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

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
