A thoroughly enjoyable reintroduction to going out for my 87 year old Mother. Really beautiful food. We would have preferred to be seated in the lovely garden itself, rather than down behind the kitchen, but it was a delightful meal.

As a visitor to Burford we had no previous experience of The Angel but it was certainly a lucky choice. Despite being in the garden marquee the heaters kept us warm, the staff were attentive and friendly and the food was a delight. Would happily make a return visit when next in the area.

Four of us had lunch in the beautiful garden of the Angel. We each ordered something different and all of us were pleased with the delicious, beautifully presented food. The staff was attentive without being intrusive, which is always a plus. From starters to desserts, we enjoyed every morsel! The beers were also excellent. Love dining there.

The covered spaces were spacious and reassuring that we'd be kept dry if it rained...but it did so can't comment on that. Food great, service prompt.

Went whilst service was limited to outside dining. We were welcomed warmly and felt reassured regarding cleanliness, social distancing etc. Staff worked hard to look after all diners in the garden, making multiple trips even in the rain and drizzle (diners were in heated covered spaces). Food was elegantly presented and tasty.

Delicious food - defo 10/10!
We overall enjoyed the setting although we were more expecting a table in the middle of the garden - however we did end up next to a heater so it was not bad at all (considering it was also a windy day).
The restaurant is dog friendly so we did run into two medium/large sized dogs at the same time. They were a little talkative from time to time but didn’t bother us too much.
A big thank you for the friendly and efficient service The Angel provided us with.

A lovely unhurried meal served by cheerful staff in a very pleasant way. Our table in the marquee with the overhead heater was much appreciated on a cold afternoon. The fact that we lingered for the best part of 5 hours is probably the best recommendation we could provide.

Great to be going out again 😀 this being only our second meal out was worth the wait. Food was amazing, service faultless and even the ladies loo allows only one person at a time. A lot of thought has gone into being COVID aware. My husband and I will definitely be returning.

We had lunch in the rear garden under a huge umbrella so if it had rained we would have stayed dry - always worth considering with an English summer!
I had chicken liver parfait to start and would have preferred a sourdough or granary toast instead of the one that was served. My partner's crab starter was delicious and so were the main courses and we finished with a pot of lovely hot coffee. The little patio heaters kept us warm and the service was excellent.
We'll be back.........

Despite some rain we were well protected by a large parasol. Heater was close by so cosy. Food was exceptional as was the house rose. Waitress friendly and efficient.
Will definitely return when lockdown is over!

We sat in the garden with a welcome patio heater above us as it was a coldish day. Good service and food. Between the three of us we sampled the fish and chips, Thai green veggie curry and a burger followed by rhubarb trifle and the chocolate mouse and peanut desert all beautifully presented and tasty.

The service was very good. The food quality was not a fair reflection of the cost.
There was very limited vegetarian choices.

Very lovely venue,pretty quiet garden away from busy Main Street.
Hot smoked salmon sandwich on sourdough bread was tasty but far too much butter and the bread was too thick and chewy.
A lighter bread would have been lovely.

Pudding , rhubarb trifle was superb
Thank you

First lunch out after lockdown 2021, and a perfect experience. Sunny garden, good social distancing and excellent food and drinks. Can't wait to return when we can sit in the Angel's gorgeous little snug, but the garden was lovely. Plate of charcuterie to share plus fresh English asparagus with parmesan shavings and a perfect crispy egg. Old Hooky on tap; what could be better! So nice to be 'out, out'!!
