Nice meal

We had a family meal here recently and although it was good I felt it was not up to the standard of our previous visit 18 months ago! We had a Sunday roast, I had beef. It came as I like, medium to rare but it was quite gristly! Also the vegetables were very under done! I know that is... read more

The pub is based on a busy roundabout and if you sit outside(seating at the front)all you can hear are boy racers and buses and trucks,inside the pub is done in a country style which was nice. The drinks are over priced but this is done to keep the yobs out, we have eaten in the pub and found it... More

Loved this pub previously, but visited recently with family and was told that it was now the law that children could not be in the bar and we had to go in the restaurant. Having previously been in there 4 days previously with my daughter I was very surprised. This is not the law. This is down to management as... More

We go to the Angel pub most weekends. The pub has a great atmosphere, staff are friendly. The food, although not the cheapest, is always of a very high standard. Beer is a little on the expensive side, and a bigger variety would be nice, but this aside every visit is always enjoyable

After visiting this pub many times with family, we were told they had suddenly changed their rules and we were not allowed to sit anywhere in the pub with children. I was always under the impression that this was a family friendly place. Such a shame as most of the bar staff are really friendly, and always make a fuss... More

Lovely looking place, nice bar, friendly bar staff. Nice atmosphere. Hope they can turn things around, needs a bit of a reality check on food! We should have noticed on entry nobody was eating in the bar... Why not. A place as nice as this should be busy busy busy. Food was poor. Ordered two starters and two mains. First... More

Visited this pub for the first time last Saturday lunch time. Food was good as was the beer. Liked it enough to return today, four days later for the same meal and it was dire. Like all of these similar pub/restaurants (Vintage Inns, Harvesters, Toby etc) you could be lucky but don't rely on it.

My family booked a table in the restaurant for lunch on Father's Day. We had high expectations as on our previous visit, albeit just for drinks, we had been made to feel welcome and the food ordered by other guests had looked delicious. We ordered two starters and four main dishes (my parents-in-law saving themselves for the pudding). We found... More

Found them very unwelcoming & sullen almost to the point of rudeness.Coffee & bill ordered, half an hour passed with neither arriving.Decided to cancel coffee & settle bill at... More

This used to be one of the best restaurants in the area so took some visiting family for Sunday Lunch. I was so disappointed. The scallops had gone rubbery from being put under the grill and the bacon on top was overdone. The pate was ordinary. The best starter from our group was the baked cheese with bread. Sadly there...
