Birthday lunch

Was pondering on a nice country pub to have a birthday lunch, and remembered a good 'taste test' write up in the Echo a few months ago. Despite being a few miles off our beaten track, my wife and I decided to give it a go. Booked up the day before, which was not really necessary as the restaurant... read more

Very quaint oldie world pub and restaurant. Food was amazing and the service was very good. Only two negatives were it was very dark with hardly any lights in the restaurant (when we mentioned it to the waitress she said 0eople are always complaining but the owner takes no notice) and the huge "Angel" in the corner - gave me...

Beautiful freshly cooked lunch. Menu changes regularity which is great as we love returning time and again. It was a very quiet lunch time, in fact we were the only customers! Staff always friendly and knowledgeable. Only down side would be limited desert choice on maybe a healthier, less rich option, some sort of fruit or fruit flan would be... More

Love this pub and it's food but getting told children are allowed in the restaurant and garden but not in the bar is so frustrating. We decided to take our business elsewhere on this occasion. It's not the law it's the pubs own choice to do this. Probably down to someone complaining. Well maybe someone should complain about the smell... More

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... 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
