I have had a few bar meals at The Angel and they have always been pretty good and reasonable value. The beer choice has been good and although a little dearer than some pubs, worth the extra. Tried the restaurant for the first time and regrettably it will be the last. The starters took an hour to arrive and although... More

Such a perfect pub. Superb food, no juke boxes or slot machines, no TVs. Beautiful food served in the bar and the restaurant. Another plus is they allow dogs in the bar. My two spaniels love going for a quick drink!

Having just moved into the area and being recommended by friends we were anxious to try The Angel. First impression was that it was very dark and the waitress had to bring another candle so that we could read the menu! It started badly as we were told the crab and salmon were out of stock (the crab was recommended... More

Staff were very good and served us quickly, this is a pub with a good reputation and definitely shows that when you arrive its traditional but packed to the hilt. Lovely food and good range of ales on pump. Brilliant night all round.

We booked for an early sitting on a Sunday lunchtime with an idea that we would be able to be served relatively quickly. Unfortunately that wasn't to be the case and even with us just ordering main courses, it was over 45 minutes until the food arrived. This appeared to be the case for everyone else too. Once it arrived,... More

We had dinner here with friends, and enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere. On a warm summer's evening, the pub was not crowded as many people were sitting outside. The pub has been renovated to reflect an older era, and the overall effect is a quaint English country pub - low ceilings, appealing nooks, interesting features. The food was good... More

Was the only pub in a very barren upmarket area, car park full of expensive cars and posing place for the glitterati. Allowed them tio get away with charging high prices for the beer, but another 2 pubs opened nearby. Food in the restaurant is good and although not cheap is fairly priced

Visited for the real ale festival. Not impressed with the beers, tried three different sorts and all tasted flat and poorly kept. Food is so-so, tastes like it's all microwaved, but nothing to complain about. My main gripe is trying to get served at the bar. Seems to take ages and not helped by regulars sitting there and not moving... More
