“Pretty place by the river.”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

The Angel Pub- august-2013

The Angel pub is located right by the bridge in Henley on the river’s edge with a good view of the river traffic. It has a very nice outside patio for dining or drinking. We stopped by there while we were on a narrowboat holiday for drinks before going into the town to do some shopping. Service was fast in spite of a pretty good-sized crowd. The prices were right in line with every other place we visited while in the UK. We’d stop there again.

“Fairly average Pub Food”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Bank holiday monday, crowds of people along the river, lovely sun and all crying out for a nice pint and a good lunch- sadly not to be delivered this time round. The Angel, historically, has been a great place to drink and eat, but it seems to have given in to the demands of the crowds and reduced its standards accordingly. What a shame! The open sandwiches were decidedly average, the bread being now where near thick enough or the slices large enough, the roast vegetables and feta cheese filling was more lettuce than vegetables and the feta could just about be located, the prawn fillings were drowned in dressing and the fish cake seemed a little lacking in fish, and considering the henley prices, definitely not good value for money.

“Great location”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Wouldn't be as critical as some people, but this place does rely on its perfect location. Standard pub food, nothing spectacular. We had good service and acceptable food. Yes, it was pricey but this is Henley and it is right on the river. It didn't affect us but we were surprised that the kitchen closed at 7pm

“Great Location But That's All”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Excellent spot right on the river in the middle of Henley. Unfortunately, the proprietors clearly know that they have an ideal location and have therefore decided to offer almost nothing else of any value. We stopped by for light lunch and a drink on a fairly sunny day. Staff seemed to be annoyed by the very presence of customers. Plastic cup for the beers. Our sandwiches could be very generously described as "open faced": a single slice of bread with a scoop of meat, cheese, and or veg dropped haphazardly on top, with a small serving of fast food quality chips on the side (for around 7 pounds each!). We've been to tourist trap places like this before and so weren't surprised by this, but it's still ludicrous. Personally, if I ran the place, I would strive to make the food, service and overall value as attractive as the location. As it is, it's only somewhere to visit if the weather is nice and you have a bit of extra money to burn for the privilege of the location.

“Good river view and good food”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Loved the salads (salmon salad and chicken salad). Great outdoor seating by river.Scampi was good- not so much the chargrilled burger which was too dry and burnt. Overall, was a good restaurant find.
