FIRST TIME WE HAVE BEEN HERE AND WE ARE REASONABLY LOCAL. 5 OF US SAT IN THE WINDOW ON A ROUND TABLE (DO SO LIKE THOSE) AND HAD A REALLY GOOD MEAL. MUSIC FESTIVAL GOING ON AND JUST A REALLY GOOD ATMOSPHERE ABOUT THE PLACE. THERE IS A FANTASTIC BACK GARDEN THAT GOES ON FOREVER! HIGHLIGHTS WERE THE SPICY MEAT BALLS, STEAK AND ETON MESS. BEER FESTIVAL WAS ON AS WELL ...... WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK?

We had a lovely meal at the Angel at Burford, the food and service was very good.

My only disappointment was the seating availability, we had booked well in advance and ended up seated near the door and the bar with a number of locals right next to our table. There was another option but it would have been cramped between two other tables.

The food was excellent and we could not fault the service.

Met with friends from different parts of the country for Sunday lunch. We'd all travelled over an hour to meet up.
Was a hot summers day, we have a coffee out in the garden and then found a shady table and ate a delicious Sunday roast.
Service was quick, but unhurried. Atmosphere was relaxed and I came away feeling I had a lovely meal and good day out.
Thank-you so much and we will all be back in the Autumn.

Food was fair. My Sunday lunch was good, but dessert was average. Let themselves down with terrible service. We were there for 2.5 hours. Starters didn't arrive until 1 hour after seating.

Was looking forward to the meal, but was disappointed with the overall experience and won't return.

Very easy to book online. Lovely garden with plenty of shade. Interesting menu. Soup far too spicy for the two who choose it (should have been warned and no compensation for not being able to consume it). Rest of the meals were very nice and the waiting staff helpful.

The pub has a nice beer garden and friendly atmosphere, the food however was poor in absolute and value terms too.

Given that our visit was at the end of a busy hot Saturday evening, we were still not satisfied. This table had been booked on Open Table over a week beforehand a table of 4. Not too much of a challenge..There was Food not available,serving staff asking the same questions several times. We asked for the wine list but it was not delivered until after the main course. We were served Black over cooked and burnt right thru "skin on fries". There were lenghty periods between service and £12 yes £12 for a not very well endowed cheese board. We did get a replacement for the Fries but was then charged for the replacement! By this stage we had simply lost the will to complain. We just paid and escaped putting the evening down to experience. We will not return! We will not recomend this establishment to any friends, as we think one evening spoilt is one too many.

We have used this restaurant before but for a reunion with friends as Burford is close to being halfway for all of us. On this occasion, as it was Fathers' Day, we had booked lunch for 2 in advance although only a few days before due to a late change in our plans. The restaurant was busy but we were seated promptly. There was a small delay before our order was taken. The meals delivered to us were not quite as ordered even though the waiter had written down the slight variation however the situation was quickly rectified by the kitchen, that said the food was excellent.

We had looked forward to our night at The Angel and although the service and food were good the same could not be said about value for money, we always prefer good quality food as opposed to huge portions of ordinary food but the size of the meals offered by The Angel don't measure up to the amount charged. We're visiting Burford again this September and won't be eating at The Angel.

The Angel provided a friendly if not unconvincing dining experience. The staff were friendly but the food was late coming out when the place was relatively quiet. Quite expensive for what was essentially pub grub although quite tasty. Nice environment in the pub garden in the sunny weather. I would go again but wouldn’t order the expensive puddings as I wouldn’t be able to justify spending £7 on them.

Nice pub. Nice food. Good service. Main course was nicely cooked and well presented. Sorbet for dessert was too sweet for us. Did not stay for coffee as the big group on the table next to us were a bit too loud - but that's not the pubs fault!

An Easter Sunday lunch with my Mother and Son, busy but not overcrowded. Delicious food and excellent service. Attentive but not overbearing and although there was obviously a second sitting arranged, we were not made to feel rushed. Would thoroughly recommend.

Went for a weekend away in Cirencester and traveled here on the way back down to Brighton after reading great views online - it did not disappoint and was definitely worth the detour. Best Sunday dinner I have had in a long, long time. We drove home with big smiles on our faces and satisfied bellies! Could not recommend enough.

Based on the website and the reviews we thought we were going to an upmarket restaurant for our 10th Wedding Anniversary. Aside from parking some 250 yards away as there was nothing closer, it is "just another pub" and nothing special at all. Terribly disappointed!

Food reasonable but a little ordinary. Staff need a little more training in order to quickly & confidently answer customers queries regarding the menu/wine list etc.

Very disappointed as I had heard such good things about the Angel. It was my mother's birthday, and we were going in the evening. I did not expect a TV blaring rugby into the dining area across from the 'lounge'.
The first waiter who took our order could only really grunt at us.
I was expecting great things from the food - I had the cod parcel - it was raw, and I had to send it back. A chef must surely know how to cook fish? They took it away, and I got it back 10 mins later, when my family had nearly finished theirs. It was supposed to come with saffron potatoes, but there was absolutely no saffron anywhere near it. All in all, quite a let down, and I won't be going back.

Good atmosphere, good beer and wine choice - excellent food. Friday night it became a bit busy so some of the service became a bit slow towards the end of the evening. My 3rd visit and the food choices and quality have been fab each time.
