This old pub has a nice ambience although it can be quite busy. Plenty of seating, both in the restuarant and bar areas.A good and varied menu mainly along the pub food type but much better than the ubiquitous burger and chips line.food is nicely presented and reasonably priced.Inside decor is wood... read more

Such a good choice of food for Sunday lunch. From an excellent roast dinner to a great steak or yummy burger. ...all served with a smile. The girls were lovely..nothing seemed too much trouble for them.

Catch up lunch with a girlfriend. I had ribeye, she had fillet steak. Both cooked to perfection. Her chips weren't great and my sauté potatoes weren't all that either, so room for improvement there. Otherwise good. I had spotted dick pudding with custard and she had sticky toffee pudding with custard. Both were dry and quite tasteless to be honest.... More

Welcoming, comfortable with lovely ambience. Delicious food served with a smile and a great willingness to adapt menu choices to fit both taste and dietry needs. 8 in our party and without exception everyone enjoyed their meal and we were pleasantly surprised at the reasonable cost. Thank you

Went here for a celebration dinner with friends last night and was not very impressed with the food quality. The sauté potatoes were very hard and virtually tasteless, the beef 'pie' turned out to be a beef stew on the dinner plate with a pastry crust placed rather haphazardly on top of it. The sweet I ordered turned out to... More

Good roast, choice of lamb or beef - simple and well priced. An ideal Sunday lunch venue. Bit of a bumble not being able to find out booking but got a table in the restaurant.

Having ordered 2 rump steaks, 1 medium and 1 medium rare, with different side orders, you would think it not too hard a task for the kitchen to get the correct steak on the right plate ? sadly no. My supposed medium rare steak was dry and hard to cut - my dog ended up with 70% of it. When... More

The Angel Inn is a very pretty looking thatched pub and is very traditional on the inside, with exposed beams and traditional pub furniture. One good thing about the Angel is their nice selection of cask ales. But food wise we were disappointed, very average pub grub. the worst part of my wife and my meal was my starter, half... More

This is a good friendly pub which offers good pub food in the bar as well as in the small restaurant area. The food drinks service and atmosphere were up to expectation. Having a small pet dog with us they were happy to allow us in the bar area and were very happy with the whole experience. A nice evening... More
