Lovely lunch. The only negative is the table where we sat was extremely draughty! We were in direct line of the back door and the front door was behind us Very uncosy and spoilt what was otherwise a lovely meal

I went for Saturday lunch on my daughters birthday. Everything was amazing from the greeting when we entered. Food was gorgeous and they were so helpful. They gave my daughter exactly what she wanted even though it was not on the menu. The lunchtime menu is very good value and the seafood lasagne was gorgeous. Lovely background music, free glass of champagne and an unexpected plate of chocolates and macarons with Happy Birthday written in chocolate on the glass serving plate. Fabulous experience- my daughter loved it!

I booked this restaurant on the advice of trip advisor as a surprise for my wife.
The food was surburb and the presentation was what i had expected after viewing the pictures online.
Wy wife had the risotto to start and i had the calamari. Both were wonderful.
For main the duck and trio of seafood, once again, well cooked and beautifully presented.
Pudding, sticky toffee and melting chocolate pot. Perfect.
I cannot fault anything of our evening and the service was first class.
The extra touches, such as a box of chocolates or macaroons to take home were fantastic, and a great gift for the babysitter or just a treat for the journey home.
We definitely will be returning very soon.
Two very happy customers

Having been to The Angel on many occasions unfortunately we were left disappointed on Saturday night. The meal took an awful long time to arrive despite it appearing fairly quiet and my husbands meal was not hot. It would appear that his had been left out waiting for mine to be cooked. Usually the food and service is excellent but just seemed to be off the boil on Saturday night.

I have eaten at the Angel 3 times now and it is exceptional. I would like to visit more often but it is over a 2 hour drive away. I took my foody son last time and even he was very impressed. I think the food is outtanding and the wine list is good without straying into silly money. I have recommended a visit to the Angel to all my friends it is a special place and a real treat.

As always a beautiful setting for a special Christmas lunch. A bit mean with a tiny tiny mince pie with our coffee but otherwise a delightful lunch.

The fish pie was 99% potatoes and 1% fish. Not what you expect from the Angel. I guess if you select the set menu they are trying to keep costs down.

This is the 3rd time I have eaten at the Angel - just as good as the previous times!
The service is friendly and well informed, but it is the food which worth the visit.
We both had fish for starter and main - amazing! So tasty and fresh.

Great food from the daily menu - 2 courses for £12.50 - great value.
My only gripe is that they only have 200cl bottles of coke/Diet Coke for the same price other restaurants sell 330cl.

This was our first visit to The Angel and we enjoyed it very much, came for husband's birthday and he was very pleased. Lovely building. Sat in conservatory which was great although can imagine it would be quite hot on a sunnier day. Food was great, only suggestion would be the pasta dough was a little thick. The filling (crab) was great.
The Eton Mesh was gorgeous and we came away with a box of macaroons. Trying to eat them slowly.

Quality of cooking not up to the pretension of the menu. Odd combinations of ingredients that do not work (e.g. salmon and beetroot). Small portions and high prices are justified in a top-end restaurant, but this place is not in that league (though seems to be deluded that it is).

Service was excellent and the establishment itself has a lovely setting, however we were not overly impressed with all the food. The website gives the impression of fine dining and in my opinion it isn’t.

Don’t get me wrong the food was edible and we didn’t complain .....this is purely constructive criticism

The cheese soufflé for starter was quite dry and the crab/crayfish ravioli was ok but nothing special.

I have to say the smoked haddock dish, which I believe is a best seller, was delicious but temperature wise a little cool.
I also feel that although staff and service were good it may be an idea to explain to customers that the dressed crab for a main is in fact ice cold from the fridge and warm sides don’t really compliment it.

I was also a little disappointed that a Merlot wasn’t available . We had beer instead which per pint was actually cheaper than the £4 bottles of water ( we were not offered tap water)

Also, I may be mistaken, I don’t remember seeing and I was definitely not informed that the gratuity was automatically added on! Perhaps you could remind me where this is stated.
