With an evening to spare in Corbridge the Angel looked like a good option. Well refurbished in a attractive style and an interesting menu it seemed a good choice. Colleagues who had eaten there earlier recommended it so in I went. There was a good choice of ales which is always a good start in my book. I made my choices and asked for a slight deferment while I enjoyed a bit of evening sun on the terrace. On time, the server called me in and I enjoyed a competent if not spectacular Mozzeralla salad. Staff seemed a little distracted and hard to find seemingly more interested in chatting at the bar - this theme continued through the rest of the evening. Main course Hake and Risotto was again fine, but just slightly disappointing and I had expected better. I am not sure, but I was not completely convinced that I was served Hake it looked more like Bass but I decided not to take it up. I am happy to be corrected and I could have been wrong. Wine choice was fine. I would just about recommend the Angel, but the staff need to sharpen up quite a lot there seemed to be a lack of a 'manager' who should be keeping everyone on their toes. Further evidence of this was when I had difficulty trying to pay the bill. Surely for the restaurant the most important part of the evening! The Angel has the potential to be really good it is in a great location and has a nice feel to it, but it is being let down by below par service, whoever owns this establishment needs to pay more attention to this in my view.
