“The jury is out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

I live in the area and went to this pub for the first time today. Lovely atmosphere and the food was not too bad. What a shame the bar staff was as unfriendly as hell. He was very abrupt with customers, including me. I was told off for trying to take a photo in the upstairs lounge, in front of all the other customers. As there were no signs up about photography, and no reason to assume it wasn't allowed, it was a bit much and actually embarrassing. Way to go making your customers feel comfortable - not! I don't appreciate paying to be treated rudely, nor do other people, so perhaps the staff and owners should keep that in mind if they want to keep their customers. Luckily the girl who served us our food was friendly - about the only saving grace.

“A local gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

Angel Pub is a traditional English pub with a truly amazing view - Tower Bridge, the Thames, the City.. Beer is good, the atmosphere is vibrant, and the balcony with ourdoor seating above the Thames will make your night.

“Cracking Pub just don't talk children after 6!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

Had a meet up with old friends here last Saturday, chosen as it was in the right part of town for us all and the area has history. In that area I doubt there is a better located pub and thanks to an expensive and sympathetic refurb this looked like a very traditional pub with lots of booths and snugs.

A Samuel Smith pub so selling very attractively priced and well kept Sam Smith beers of which I enjoyed a couple of pints of Old Brewery bitter.

As well as lots of choice inside there is a deck area overlooking the river and an upstairs lounge and restaurant.

Now the let down, we also went to this pub as they were family friendly, not however after 6PM and so we retreated outside on the riverside which has a seating area for pub users and locals, thankfully the weather was kind so we could stay here for the 1.5 hours pre-dinner.

I'd go back but I won't be bringing the under 18 next time.

“Angelic Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

A true gem in the heart of London, on the way to Shaftesbury Avenue. The snug rooms upstairs are beautifully plush, the drinks are excellent and the prices are....not London prices!

“Little-known gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Fantastic location right by the river, near Bermondsey tube. On the outside terrace, it's difficult to think of a better pub view in London. The inside is cosy and warm. Friendly service. Typical range of Samuel Smith's beers, although no real ale. The Angel deserves to be better-known!
