“Been coming here for years, love the place.”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

The Angel isn't pretentious, it just provides good quality honest grub for a reasonable price. I would much rather come to a nicely run independent than one of the other chain Marsden restaurants where everything just comes out of a bag.

“Mother's Day lunch”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

We had Sunday/Mothers Day lunch, 2nd time here and we were not disappointed. The girls waiting the tables are young and inexperienced, but the food makes up for a few little issues. Plenty of car parking, clean nice little pub. Would like to try the curry night next.

“Good Honest Sunday Roast”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

We have been several times to The Angel always on a Sunday so cannot speak for during the week.
We have always had a really nice Sunday roast, the 3 meats choice is always our favourite.
We take my 80 year old brother out on Sunday has he lives on his own its a great way to get out of the house and have a home cooked meal prepared.
The Angel is one of our favourite places to go.
The bonus is the FRESH VEG not frozen , and HOME MADE GRAVY which you tend not always to get at other places.
The portions are good and value for money.
Only downs are the deserts are NOT home made and the apple pie is not very nice have had it burnt on outside and cold in middle before now, also not much choice, sometimes it can be a wait to get served and some times there is a wait between courses, but no worries as it is all good overall and we will continue to go there for food.
Would give a 7/10 but with a little more effort they could easily get 10/10.

“Rude staff and burnt food”
Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

As previous reviews have stated, the food was a little over done and dry. However with the price in mind I can live with this, what I won't tolerate is rudeness and this was pushed to the extreme, upon sending a meal back the chef advised the food was neither burnt or dry ( maybe slightly biased ) and again we made the point that we were not satisfied. The response was one iv not heard before from a customer service environment and that was " you can shut up ". This maybe acceptable to drunks using the bar but certainly not customers using the restaurant !! This was my second visit, both had waits of over an hour for starters. I would add the staff issue appears to be from the older members of staff, the young lady and gentleman were extremely polite. The customer is always right, this appears not to be the case in The Angel, it's the chefs way or the high way !
