We went to Angela's for a wedding anniversary meal and were very disappointed. The prices are high, but we were prepared to pay for what we thought would be a very special meal. Angela gave us a warm welcome but we were the only customers in the restaurant (lunch time) which didn't bode well. Angela and the waitress were very friendly and helpful but the meal was not good. We both had starters of goat's cheese on brioche with pear and walnut, which arrived on a small bed of tired lettuce and tomato with very little pear or walnut. It was fine, but not special. For main course my husband had duck which was nicely presented and cooked as requested, but my sea bass was under cooked and had to be returned. The vegetables were boring, just carrots, broccoli, swede and duchesse potatoes. The two courses were bland but we decided to have desserts in the hope of redeeming the celebration meal. We choose Angela's dessert to share which sounded full of promise including dark chocolate mousse, honeycomb ice cream and a few others things. What arrived could have easily been eaten by one person but it cost £12 so we felt short changed.
The restaurant is well laid out and has a pleasant feel, with an excellent choice of background music, but its standards need to rise, or prices drop if it is to attract customers more than once. However, whatever the price I don't think we would make a re-visit.
We then walked to the near by M&S to buy a Dine in For Two for £10 to make up for our experience. Enough said?
