My partner and I had Sunday lunch at The Angel; we chose the beef which was well flavoured along with great Yorkshire pudding and good vegetables. The beef could have been more tender but otherwise the meal was great.
Drinks were a little on the expensive side £3.50 for a very small coffee but overall it was a good experience.

You’ll be hard pushed to find a better Sunday roast anywhere else in the Cotswolds! The roast pork was just right. We shared a starter of pan fried prawns which were super fresh.
Great atmosphere as it was the angel’s summer festival that weekend.

We had a great welcome and lovely, imaginative meal. Enjoyed a drink in the fabulous garden beforehand and can recommend the Hookey beers. After the main course we were offered the dessert menu and agreed but it never came and 30 mins later thought coffee and anniversary cake back at the caravan might be quicker and cheaper!

Our recent visit to the Angel did not disappoint. Excellent service and only criticism of the food would be the main meal portion could be a little larger but otherwise could not fault. Good selection of wines. We have now eaten here a few times and would not hesitate to return.

Amazing lunch with friends at The Angel. We requested a high chair and a dog friendly table and both were waiting for us on arrival. Food was spot on - I had no room for dessert but had one anyway. How can you not have lemon curd ice cream?!

We had an absolutely delicious Sunday lunch ... 3 of us had the lamb and one the beef. The roasts were delicious the potions were good sized. In summary we could find no fault, would definitely recommend. In addition to the food the service, and ambience were also great! A truly good find.

Birthday treat. It was jazz night too - a bonus for me. We were offered a table in the back room but opted for one near the band. Service timing was good and we opted for a break before the pudding. Nice touch to get a glass of fizz on arrival for my birthday. I had the salmon roulade and my husband had the pate. My husband had smoked haddock and I had lamb (pink) for the main course. My husband finished with cherry bakewell. Our second visit. My husband dropped me off and parked in the car park at the bottom of the road.

Unfortuanely we were three old friends meeting up after a year for a catch up.Did not realise there would be a jaz band on that night.The music was great although made it a bit difficult to talk.The food and service was good.

Nothing diasterous with this lunch, it just wasn't special. We eat out most Sundays and are always looking for somewhere new. The Angel came recommended and indeed the menu looked OK.
It's quite expensive for what it is. A pretty cramped table in a pub bar.
Service OK. Quite friendly.
However, beef was topside and a tough. Roast potatoes not the best. Gravy was great. Hake was extremely dry. Treacle sponge and custard on the specials board should have been a treat, but in reality was poor. The sponge was heavy and not really treacly enough and the custard was strangely lumpy.
Probably won't be going back.

The visit was pleasant, food was very good and my rating would have been higher but it was spoiled by the very bitter tasting coffee at the end of the meal. This was echoed by the people sitting on the table next to us.

Go for a pint/drinks and bar snacks and the fantastic atmosphere
The food is average. Stick with the pub staples.
But again the atmosphere, the quality drinks and the really lovely staff are wonderful.

Great menu, plenty of choice plus daily specials, delicious gourmet freshly prepared food at great prices, staff were so friendly and attentive, made the experience even better. The front of the pub can be a squeeze as the tables are quite close but it’s so cosy and comfy that it wasn’t an issue for us.

Met up with friends from Reading and Birmingham. I drove from Wiltshire. Had a lovely meal and the service was excellent. Not so noisy as last time we met there which was good as we could catch up on each other's news. Thank-you for a lovely lunch everyone at the angel. We'll be coming again in September/October

It is a nice pub / restaurant and we had fond memories of it from when we lived in the area. I was disappointed when we came for lunch on 23 April. The very friendly waitress was rushed off her feet and so service was not the best. We were waiting at the bar for five minutes when we arrived. The vegetarian options were unimaginative and limited. Sorry, not the best experience.

Nice location and nice décor. Good selection of ales and nice menu choices. Was a bit surprised to see dogs were allowed in the indoor dining area although the dog in question was well behaved and no bother. Returned a couple of days later in the day time and used the beer garden at the rear which was a pleasant outside space.

Great breakfast, great ingredients - service was good but staff should be more aware of how their conversation can be heard by customers.

Although the restaurant/pub is well decorated, the toilets were not good, water all over the floor, items hanging off the wall.

Overall I would definitely recommend breakfast here, just a couple of things for improvement - staff training and toilets.

Wanted to visit here for a while parking bit great as you have to use the public car park 5 minutes away and it was raining. However the food made up for it . Smaller bar area than I thought but the log fire made it cosy and warm just what we needed on a cold wet day.

Lovely meal, food all fresh and prepared inhouse, my only complaint was the fish that my wife and I had in the fact that there was only one piece of fish, hence a bit on the small side! Other than that an excellent meal.

Nice location, food and staff, but being packed in like sardines made for uncomfortable dining. We left earlier than we normally would have.
