Had lunch here. Menu is somewhat limited (baguettes, burgers, pub meals). Had a burger which was fresh and pleasant. Chips were also nice. Staff were nice enough; they told us our burgers would be a bit of a wait which we said was fine and were pleased they said so we could make that decision. Couple of burgers and drinks... More

Called in here last week for a lunchtime drink and food. We opted to sit in the bar which was a little dark but had a nice large table for the 4 of us. Ordered drinks and perused the menu; barman pointed out quickly that one of the mains was finished but that turned out not to be an issue.... More

We were on a cycling trip round the Forest of Dean and this particular route included the town of Coleford. After a 5 klm uphill gradient from Park End we called at The Angel for a well deserved pint. The barman was not welcoming at all. Surly and disinterested was the politest description I can give. My partner ordered a... More

We came here on a recommendation and were so disappointed that we left without ordering! Although not particularly busy, there were too few staff to cope with customers and we sat for ten minutes before being given menus. The barman seemed overwrought and wasn't able to show us to a table in the restaurant, which we had to find for... More

Went for a meal on a Saturday night in January. Immaculate outside and in, but no effort at all with food. I had a chicken burger. The piece of chicken hardly filled half the bun, and the bun was so hard it was like toast. It was also filled with a "nan's salad", presumably to fill the empty space. My... More

We struggled to find a restaurant for lunch in Coleford and came across the Angel. The restaurant was busy (see later). We had to rearrange the tables to cope with our party of 4 + 2 under 3's without any welcome or assistance from staff. We found some menus and a waitress took our order a few minutes later, drinks...

On holiday in the Forest of Dean with my family we chanced upon this hotel for lunch, seven of us had a satisfying meal and a drink for just under £50, excellent value.

Went into the bar tonight had to wait for over 5 minutes to be severed a drink there were people in front of me who walked out. Time to sort out bar service if not they will loose not only the locals but visitors to.
