We were greeted warmly and offered to sit in the stable area where it was quieter than the main area by the bar.
Service was brilliant, friendly waiting staff, food was lovely. Wouldn’t hesitate to go back.

We have been going to the Angel for years and were pleased that they were open for outside dining. A covered marquee plus heaters and blankets for our knees meant we were very comfortable. The service was great with a very friendly waitress. We went on a Thursday which had fish and chip special on. Excellent value at £9.95. My husband couldn't decide which beer to have so they provided him with three taster glasses to try. Great place, can't fault it.

It was the first time we had visited the Angel and we really enjoyed our time there. The staff were friendly and very professional they were very covid safe. The food was really nice but our eyes were bigger than our belly’s. A really great place and we will most definitely return.

Wow 🤩 let’s start with the service!!! Incredible, a group of front of house who make you feel welcome, warm and engaged. The angel would be worth 5 stars for service alone. However the food and price make this 10/5. A real gem in the garden of England. Love it ❤️

We had a lovely time and the food was great. Fantastic service too. We had to dine outside due to the current restrictions, but they have a large outside seating area which is covered over and they also have heaters. Highly recommend.

My wife and I had a lovely meal at The Angel. With the current restrictions, you are seated outside but under a marquee and even though it was a chilly evening, there were two large patio heaters that kept us warm.

Have made a big effort with heaters and a marquee and blankets if needed to make sure customers are comfortable whilst having to eat outside.
Still a nice selection on the menu as well. Lovely Tapas

Our main come out the same time as our starters, steak was chewy and the sausages and wild boar burger was cold, didn’t once come to our table to see if we wanted another drink only when we first got there they asked

The Angel Inn
Responded on 13 May 2021

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately there was a mix up with your order as you ordered some starters first and your mains order was taken a short time after by a different waitress. Your mains was brought out just as you were finishing your starters with only one piece of bread left on your artisan bread board. I personally apologised immediately and you were all (at the time) perfectly ok with this!! Regarding drinks I can only apologise for the lack of service you received that night.

Covered outside dining was good and comfortable, despite it being a cold Saturday lunchtime. Friendly service, good choice of food and the although we only had a fish finger sandwich it was delicious and the portions were large. Good value and would definitely recommend.

First meal out since lockdown !
Sat outside in heated and covered patio area. Great service and food.
Menu was varied and as was lunch menu more than expected.
Had cocktails too !
A much needed escape!
Plenty of space for eating and drinking at the front and back of the building so covid restrictions can be adhered to.
A great place to go

Sadly freezing heaters weren’t on in the marquee and roast was cold with watery gravy such a shame because I’ve eaten before and it was lovely

The Angel Inn
Responded on 27 April 2021

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately the breezy conditions on Sunday meant the heaters would have had no benefit if they were on. We do have blankets which we are happy to provide had we known you were freezing. Outdoor dining is as it says and we can only do so much but unfortunately the weather is out of our control!!. With regard to your disappointment with your meal I will pass these comments to our kitchen team. Had you had said at the time we would have replaced the meal.

Outdoor heaters are not working so very cold sitting under the terrace.

Service was slow and food was very average..

The Angel Inn
Responded on 27 April 2021

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately the terrace heater decided to stop working last week and we are unable to get it fixed at the moment due to the cost of repairs. We do have the wall heaters and also blankets should you need them. As with any outdoor dining we can only do so much and unfortunately the weather is out of our control!!. I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your visit and hope you may return once indoor dining is allowed.

We had a lovely meal, service great, staff very polite, food was delicious. BUT a little disappointed where they sat us, the weather was glorious, plenty of empty tables yet they sat us in the marquee (looked like a bin was to the side) it wasn't until we were about to have our main meal that another member of staff (Helen) came along and asked if we wanted to move into the back garden, we declined as we were half way through our meal. Would've made a huge difference to how long we stayed. BUT we would still go back as the food and service was lovely.

Excellent lunch at The Angel; good menu choice, which is great as a lot of places (understandably) have restricted menus at the moment. We were in the marquee, which was good as it was a windy day. The Covid restrictions were well-managed and all precautions taken. It was a joy to be eating out again!
