I went to The Angel Inn for dinner with a local friend. There was a warm atmosphere, I was even advised on the beers there by a couple of locals, great stuff! The food was good, as well as the wine selection. Above all, the service was prompt and friendly, but not intrusive. By all accounts a popular 'local'.

Had a very enjoyable meal here with my. Wife. Great selection on the menu and some decent wine as well. Lovely country feel pub and was really impressed with cost. Don't go here very often despite being close. We should go more! Only second time eating here and will be back again for sure.

Tuesday night is home made pie & pint or glass of wine for £10. Very good value for money, pies are very hearty. Definitely worth a visit. Only shame is they let dogs in who some of the owners have no control over!

Went for a family meal yesterday which was an awful experience. The food was burnt and over salted, vegetables were not cooked or seasoned. My daughter had black french fries delivered to the table, which she immediately sent back, then on trying her burger nearly broke a tooth it was so hard and dry. She complained and ordered a replacement... More

Had a very enjoyable evening here on 29th December visiting some relatives and were made to feel at home by the staff and welcomed by friendly locals. The food is good value and honest. We were told not to order steaks until the Steak Chef came in at 6pm. So, I guess their proper kitchen staff (as opposed to warmer-uppers)... More

Nice pub but don't dare order food at 2:31 as the chefs finish at 2:30 so ... Service is so so. If you can fight your way past the couple of regulars at the bar and draw the staff members attention from her phone then you'll probably get served? Shame, little things ruin what's a fantastic opportunity.

We used to eat in the restaurant once or twice a month but the service levels have fallen away and the food has become mediocre at best. We now don't use the restaurant but recently had a quick meal in the bar area. Sausage, mash and mixed vegetables. Not sure what to say, service was minimal plates brought to table... More

I hate to give a bad review, but dear lord there are no words to describe what we ate at the Angel, other than to say it was Pseudo food of the poorest quality. Nothing would ever get me back there again. Never mind the waste of my hard earned money, it is the utter let down of not being... More

After a quick visit to George's brewery in watering 7 of us popped into this great pub for a spot of lunch with a few pints to celebrate Christmas. The beef wellington was a favourite of many and all the dishes were superbly done.
