My uncle is a regular at the Angel and he decided to treat the rest of the family to dinner yesterday. The service and roasts were awful. My mother ordered an orange juice which turned up in a dirty glass and had to be replaced. We had to wait a long time for our main courses to turn up... read more

A hidden gem, so nice to go a unique English pub and not another chain restaurant churning out pre-prepared food. All 4 meals were different choices and Excellent quality. Hot & fresh. Waitress was very sweet. We've been to the pub side several times, first time to restaurant and the whole place has a lovely olde English quirky feel. We... More

Were cautious, having read previous reviews, however, found the restaurant to be very pleasant surroundings, a very helpful waitress, and while the service was somewhat slow, the food being cooked for you, was excellent in presentation and quality.

The Angel always has a few good proper beers on offer, so well worth dropping in! I just wish that the kitchen didn't open straight into the bar, as the seating area often has an odour of over-heated frying oil...

Lovely staff, very helpful and attentive but food disappointing and I felt over overpriced. I ordered steak and ale pie, should have been called mushroom pie. Have have much better and cheaper in pubs along the seafront. I was looking forward to it but came away very unsatisfied.

This was only my second time in the Angel and first time eating here - it was lovely! Such a nice, cosy environment with good, quick service. Food didn't take long and it was fresh and hot. Would definitely eat here again!

We went for a meal here the week before Christmas, and managed to get a table for five even though we only booked on the day! The menu was good with choices to meet everyone's requirements (veggie options included) and the food was well cooked and presented. Te chilli prawns were especially good. There is also a wide choice of... More

We have had several meals here in the past and they have always been very good, together with very good service. I visited with a couple of friends very recently and we were all very disappointed. We all ordered lamb shanks with mash and vegetables. The shanks were very dry and tough and the mash was not very good either.... More

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
