We had the restaurant recommended to us locally. The restaurant is run as a 'hobby' by the owners but don't let that worry you at all. Ilfracombe is just about closing down in October & we were the only ones eating in the restaurant that night which meant that the place did lack atmosphere. The menu is well balance with... More

We have been here lots and it is wonderful. The food is exceptional and good value. It is owned by a lovely couple who run it as a sort of hobby. Sadly we went early this time and we were on our own. This is not usual and certainly not a reflection on standard. It is an old butchers shop!... More

This is a really well kept secret of a restaurant, and is fantastic. We come back every year and it never disappoints. It is a traditional restaurant that produces top quality classic food, with courteous old school service, in an unfussy style. No music, no gimmicks, just great cooking, which makes you remember what fantastic food tastes like. Stepping back... More

We liked what we had so much last time we had the same again. It was absolutely fantastic as last time but we must try other dishes from their extensive menu. We have a friend coming to stay in a couple of weeks...who eats out often and appreciates the best food. She won't be disappointed. This is the number 1... More

Fantastic meal,fantastic service. Good value. We loved it. Now need to diet! Had to have all 3 courses. The seafood starter was the best ever. The fish was wonderful and the dessert was out of this world. Shhh keep it to yourself.

I have been going to The Angel for some 18+ years now, with family and also with friends. I have never had a bad, or even slightly bad, meal here. Keith and Carol go out of their way to ensure you have an enjoyable time. The food is good, honest, well cooked food with a relatively small menu that they... More
