OK'ish

Have been for Sunday lunch six or more times. Usually beef or lamb which is always acceptable but after our last visit have a suspicion beef was cut cold and reheated. If wrong I apologise but that's how it tasted. Just not as good as it used to be. Vegetables and sauces plus the Yorkshire quite... read more

Lovely old English pub with good restaurant. Food is always good, great draught beer, and staff always friendly and loads of parking. Well worth a visit.

Disappointing food lacked basic taste I agree with other review the chef needs to taste the food before sending this has been the case on now a few occasions so unfortunately won't be going back

Food ok, nothing special, steak & ale pie was mainly mushroom and puff pastry, very limited desert menu. Staff obviously anxious to close up and get off as they were taking our glasses as soon as we finished, no question about coffees or another drink. Priced as a mid-range restaurant, food and service not up to that. Will not be... More

We had lunch here, had the burger with mozzarella cheese and it was evident the chef does not taste the food they cook, it was badly seasoned and just not nice. The staff are wonderful and welcoming and the pub has a lovely atmosphere and the beers are nice too, they just need to sort out the food, and maybe... More

Following a previous visit we took extended family here. Table for 9. All meals were fresh, hot & Excellent quality. Busy Sunday, food service was great, drink re supply a little slow but overall lovely. We will be back again!

I've eaten here a few times in the past and always thought it excellent but a recent visit was very disappointing. Despite the restaurant being virtually empty the service was slow and forgetful, lacking in attention. The main courses were nice enough but distinctly average, not good enough to encourage me to go back. The dessert options were disappointing -... More

Nothing to really complain about, but nothing to write home about either. I had a business meeting over Sunday lunch, so thought a traditional pub Sunday lunch would be ideal. The pub itself is a great local with decent beer and bar snacks etc. And the restaurant, for the last few years has always been well above average. But I... More

We have been going here with family and friends for many years and eating in both the restaurant and the bar. Recently eating in the restaurant with friends one Saturday evening the food when it eventually arrived after a long wait was a great disappointment. My meat pie was mostly tough meat with chewy mushrooms and an cooked pastry lid.... More

I have been visiting The Angel for as long as I can remember because my Nan lives around the corner and it's one of her favourites. The last couple of times I've been I've had the same meal, because it's just so tasty! Today we all had a lamb and cumin burger, and we had a crab cocktail and chicken... More
