We didn’t stay here but we ate here twice during our stay in the Niagara Region. The food was great service was good. It might have been a little slow in getting our food, but it was fairly busy. Like people said before it’s a pub not a fine dining spot. I will eat here again when in the area!

The Olde Angel Inn is a very old building with historical significance for Niagara On the Lake. When you walk in-you immediately feel like you are back in time and can only imagine someone from 100 years ago sitting back and relaxing with a beer!!!
It was a fun and noisy place. The wait staff were great and the food was excellent.
We went with only one menu item in mind-the fish and chips. I am not typically a fan of fish and chips-I usually find the fish overly breaded and greasy with low quality meat used but the very large portion was breaded nicely and golden brown. We washed it down with some tasty local Niagara brew beer.
It was a refreshing place to eat since we had been in the area for a number of days already and were limited to dining in more upscale type dining establishments.
A great place to eat.

THE SHORT STORY
The Olde Angel Inn is a small Inn that was perfect for our group.

Just to be clear and explain a little bit about the Inn and Pub, this is not a place for anyone looking to go to for marble bathrooms.

It is fine if you go to bed early or have kids IF you are staying in the cottages and not actually in the pub.

The rooms are in an old style with original plank wood flooring, antique picture dotting the walls, exposed beams, antique headboards(the bed frame, mattress, and bedding however are new), even old style woodworking.

This is the type of place for people who enjoy visiting pubs and the culture and history that it entails. The second you walk in the culture and history is so thick you feel like you can cut it with a knife. The result is an amazing atmosphere and varying crowd ranging from 20's-65+ with everyone enjoying themselves.

THE LONG STORY
We traveled as two couples, we are a very relaxed group enjoying the nightlife, culture, and good company. We spent both Friday and Saturday night at the Inn and Pub. The first night all four of us went down to the pub and stayed downstairs stomping, singing, and clapping to the music having enjoyed the evening far more than expected. The band was fantastic for a "small quiet couples town" rivaling some of the music that you would hear at some of the hot music spots in bigger cities like Ottawa.

We stumbled back to our room for an extraordinarily good sleep. The rooms upstairs were completely quite until about noon, even thou we didn't sleep a wink past 7AM.

We spent the day visiting the wineries of N.O.T.L. We did not participate in the taste of the season. After listening to what it involved we decided to visit wineries at our own pace taking tours at the wineries we wished to see. We started out at Peller Estate Winery and took the tour learning the ins and outs of wine tasting and making. We arrived for the first tour of the morning and as a result it was us four and one other couple. It was lots of fun, and very informative. After visiting a few other wineries and seeing the large group sizes it was clear that we had lucked out going for the first tour of the day. This was a great kick off to the wine tasting events. With the knowledge of the tour we found that the best places to visit were the smaller wineries with our favorite being Caroline Cellars. They were much more personal and really loved the business which made our experience that much more enjoyable.

After a long day we returned to the inn for supper having their FANTASTIC French Onion Soup for starters. For those of you who love French Onion Soup you understand that it is difficult to find a good French Onion soup and almost impossible to find one that is fantastic.

For our main course we had 2 plates of Fish and chips and 1 steak and kidney pie. One couple shared the fish and chips which was lots for two if you are average eaters. If you are a six foot some guy with an appetite you'll need one for yourself. All the meals were excellent of very generous portion sizes and the Angel Inn Lager nicely complimented the pub fare.

After supper we meandered upstairs to our room for a catnap finding that our room had been cleaned with fresh towels, new little soaps and shampoos which we didn't expect considering the age and small size of the INN.

The two gals stayed upstairs and slept right through the party downstairs. The two men somehow finding some magic energy went downstairs to drink some beer and listen to some music. After they came back from the evening at around 1 AM one of them had bruising both on his palm and heel from stomping and banging to the music which pretty much explains the enjoyment of the evening.

The Gals were up at about 630AM while the Guys followed surprisingly quickly at about 730AM. We went out for breakfast and then shopping after packing up, checking out at around 1130 or Noon actually seeing the owner of the pub on our way out of town and getting a good laugh.

We arrived in NOTL a day earlier than expected with no accommodation booked (not really the best idea in peak season as everywhere is very busy).

The Angel Inn is a very attractive looking place and caught our eye immediately when walking through town. It had vacancies so, although we had seen the reviews about noise on Tripadvisor, we decided to give it a go - it was a Monday night, and there was no live music and we've stopped in plenty of pubs before without any problems.

All went well from check in to around 12.00am - we had a nice room with lovely beams etc. We ate in the pub and the food was good/atmosphere nice. From 12.00am onwards, however, the noise was incredible - people shouting (on a Monday night in a classy little place like NOTL??), then when the pub closed at 1.00pm it seemed as if the staff were rearranging all the furniture in the entire pub, then more shouting until about 2.30pm and then an alarm close by went off - twice!! Maybe we were just unlucky, but I wouldn't stay here again for this very reason.

I would go back to the pub, however, which is extremely popular even though some of the staff seem not to like being bothered by the pesky customers!

Approached here late one afternoon having just had to leave other sub-standard accomodation and had two wonderful nights in one of their two cottages, Swayze's Cottage. Even better in that they had succumbed to my wife's haggling skills and we got the cottage for $200 p/n instead of quoted rate. They couldn't have been more helpful and one staff member even phoned around to try and source a travel adaptor so our son could charge up his iPod. The cottage, while not the height of luxury, was clean and very comfortable. The location, just 100yds from the main street with all it's shops and restauarants, is perfect. Didn't try the food in the Inn but found a few good places nearby. If seriously self catering try to take your own supplies as nearby Value-Mart seems to have everything double the price of anywhere else. Never heard any of the noise other reviewers have mentioned but this cottage is out the back of the inn and set in a lovely garden which is shared with their other self-catering property. The garden overlooks a bowling green so even live tranquil entertainment with grandstand seats to view some local life. Would definitely recommend this place although their standard rate maybe explains how we found the place empty but maybe not everyone is as mean as us.

I've noticed other reviews for this location have mentioned the noise and it is noisy! We stayed on a Friday and Saturday night, and there was noise from the guests and noise from the live music and if you go in expecting it this is not bad. Off season rates are great and the location is fantastic. Good food and drinks downstairs in the pub.

This is not the place for anyone looking for quiet time with the one they love... But feel free to make all the noise you want!

We were recently "stranded" in Niagara-on-the-Lake by a snowstorm, and whiled away the hours in the warm confines of the Angel Inn. It's a homelike place, very much like a pub in England, and staff and owners were friendly, personable, and helpful. The beer selection is wonderful (and we are connoisseurs of a good pint), the food is good, inexpensive, & hearty, and the staff was willing to accomodate requests for vegetarian substitution. We spent one night in the Colonel's Suite; all was quiet, though we were apprehensive about the rumored hauntings disturbing us, as we were the only guests at the Inn that night. The suite was huge, furnished with antiques, and had a great view. I recommend the Angel for anyone looking for a place that will make you feel like a local--every one of the owners was working at the pub during the time we were there. Staff allowed us to use their computer to check on our cancelled flight, and generally looked out for us. We will definitely be back.
