Have visited the Angel on several occasions and have always found staff to be friendly and extremely helpful. The food is exceptionally good and have never been disappointed. It's great to have such a wonderful local pub on our doorstep

We took some relatives here for a Sunday lunch and we were not dissapointed. We all ordered the Sunday roast and we were all very happy with quality and portions served.

Nice pub inside, 3 bar area's and the restaurant, we visited lunchtime, I had steak with a creamy peppercorn sauce - no sign of cream looked like gravy with peppercorns but tasted ok, Steak was cook as ordered, chips were over cooked, nice side salad, my husband had a pie which he enjoyed, limited wine if you only want to order by the glass, mine was pretty poor considering the cost, value wise at lunchtime in future I would opt for a baguette as they seem much better value.If you sit in the back bar it's a pain having to order your food from the restaurant and it can be very slow. It's a dog friendly pub so no doubt we will return. I wouldn't opt to sit outside in the summer as it's very close to a busy road.

It took over 30 minutes for our drink order to arrive and over 1 1/2 hours for our food to arrive. The food however was edible and the staff polite.

A group of us meet at the Angel Inn because usually it is central for us all, good nourishing food is served and there is a friendly team of employees. Unfortunately, this was not the case recently. The main course was edible but served at a coolish temperature. The desserts were basic/acceptable, except that the brandy sauce had too many lumps. We were drinking wine - the red wine was served freezing cold and when we ordered water, that never arrived, despite two requests. We gave up. Coffee arrived tepid and we had to order more hot water to make it drinkable. When ordering the desserts (this is not done at the table, you have to walk to the girl who is two rooms away and she takes your order and adds it to the bill), she asked me to find my own cutlery and was a little surprised when I requested more festive napkins. Only really at the end of the meal when a gentleman appeared with four complimentary mint chocolates did we actually receive any real service - but he was giving us the bill. An interesting observation we made was that you have to give a credit card when you arrive at the Inn as guarantee for the food you are ordering - I wonder what happens if you do not have a credit card? We will not be returning for our gatherings in the future.
