9 Firefighters and there partners had a fantastic Christmas party at the Angel! They wanted to have the meal after Christmas and that was no trouble for the Angel making the Christmas menu available in January and still finding crackers. The food and service was excellent with nothing being to much trouble. We pre ordered our food so the service... More

I have had lunch and dinner here several times - it has always been very good. Yesterday, I took a party of 27 people there for lunch in a cosy front room, with a log fire. We had given them our menu choices a few days earlier. We bought our drinks at the bar and took these to our tables... More

Went looking with my visiting family for a place open on New Years Day for a light lunch. Headed blindly to Petworth due to its number of pubs and found The Angel Inn. Having not booked we were still welcomed and a table found in a very busy Inn. Food superb, service superb, atmosphere superb. Ticks every box. Very, very... More

This was opened some 3 years ago now and it has been a very successful venture, Good food, reasonable prices, good beer as well. Lots of locals sitting around the bar and plenty of room to eat with a fabulous garden area for the summer. Staff attentive and friendly.

The Angel in Petworth is a very old building and as such is not for the infirm, if staying overnight the tight, twisty and steep stairs to the 5 rooms are a challenge, not to mention the ducking to get under the leather padded beams. This is not the case on the ground floor as there is a large open... More

Went here for dinner with friends. The place was packed, but it was the evening of the Petworth Christmas fayre so perhaps not surprising. I had Moules as a starter. Slightly over-cooked, and the cream sauce VERY rich, but tasty. Gourmet burger as main was delicious. Just the thing on a cold evening!
