Fantastic fish menu, beautifully presented. We sat in the conservatory where the tables are set with white linen tablecloths and linen covered chairs. The service was good but not overpowering. However I do hate it when they bring the food before the plates. You have to just sit salivating over it. The desserts were great - I had a chocolate tarte and my partner had cheese. Portions are measured but not mean, and prices more London than country pub.

I had dinner with friends to celebrate a birthday
We ordered three main courses; The John Dory was completely different to the description on the menu (no samphire but lots of silverskin onions)
There was no bread offered and all three meals were very small portions
Suffice to say we went home hungry

We were very impressed that we were allowed to bring our own bottle for a reasonable £5 corkage fee. However, when the bill came we found that that was £5 multiplied by the number of people present. When I explained that this was not what the website had said though the gentleman who dealt with our bill kindly reduced it to £5.

Food was fresh with good quality ingredients, was well presented and very tasty even on the set menu. Our waitress was very helpful and attentive

A group of us go to the Angel as we travel from various parts of the country and it is a useful spot to meet.

It is a lovely restaurant and we always enjoy going there. However this time we agreed it seemed to be 'lacking' something, but we couldn't put our finger on it.

Think we maybe becoming grumpy old women as there were a couple of very young children there who were not quiet and the grandfather had to walk around the room with the baby. Not conducive to a relaxing lunch and catch -up . I realise the restaurant could not be responsible for this, but maybe seating and table allocation could have been better planned.

Myself and a few friends went for the lunchtime special at £20 for three courses. The food was good but by the time you add on drinks , coffee and service it costs in excess of £30 per head. It is however good value for money as the whole package is good. I would go again.

Very enjoyable except the 'straw fries' served with the John Dory fish special main dish, as they were very difficult to eat from a fork so I didn't think they worked with the dish

Food was excellent as always. The experience was let down slightly by the service that was a bit slow. There did not seem to be enough staff to deal with the number of diners. We ordered the sharing dessert but weren’t told it came with the soufflé which takes 20 minutes to prepare.
The manager was very helpful and hopefully our next visit will be spot on. We do love going

Eating at the Angel was a delightful experience particularly if you like fish. We thought it was one of the most enjoyable dining experiences we have had. We both had three courses and chose different things. Each dish was perfect. The young staff were suitably attentive from being to end. (There when we wanted them, but not when we didn't.) We never felt rushed so we could enjoy our meal (and the wine) without any pressure. Excellent service! My only regret is that I didn't have one of the famous gin cocktails. Well, we will have to go back!!

Two of us had a Thai fish cake starter with aioli. Decent fish cake but no detectable
Thai spices and aoli was basically mayonnaise with no garlic taste. My main was roast sirloin. Clearly cooked before and sliced cold for reheating. 3 thin slices no sign of pink fairly tender but not appealing, good gravy poor roasties. Skipped dessert, coffee not hot, overall below average for me although people who had fish found it better. Not good value in my opinion.

Love this restaurant but the service this time unfortunately was very poor. Waited 45 minutes for our starter/ bread to arrive. Vegan options fantastic.

The Angel provided a venue for a lovely birthday lunchtime meal, with an excellent range of both fish and veggie options. The food was cooked well and was both imaginative and well presented. Highly recommended.

Delicious, interesting dishes with an emphasis on fish. Beautifully cooked and presented. Our party of 6 had 2 courses each with wine, at a cost of just over £40 each. Friendly staff, cosy dining areas, chic decor.

Fantastic time at The Angel. Good Sunday menu which wasn’t obvious from website. Food was excellent as usual. Issue with first delivered bottle of wine quickly sorted by manager. All in all thoroughly recommended.

Really enjoyed the food; bar area is lovely to relaxing in and socialise before the meal. Good advice from the barman about a refreshing G&T.
Only 2 tiny frustrations; took forever to order drinks at the table, so I did complain lightly about it (reason given was they were very busy, but not too busy to serve the larger tables) and we asked for a small jug of extra gravy, which wasn’t an issue, but beef gravy supplied for our lamb.

Top class restaurant, made more special as it is not in a town centre but in a village (as it happens, my local village). Good variations but speciality is fish. Always beautifully cooked and stylishly presented. Service is attentive, polite and prompt.

A classy place, highly recommended.

We visited The Angel with friends, for dinner. The bar atmosphere was cosy and very pleasant. The dining area has a classy, fresh feel about it. Food was delicious. Service was good. Would definitely come back to this restaurant.

Beautiful, inventive food, if a touch pricey. Lovely dining rooms and fire in the front bar, which was fantastic. However, our table was in the conservatory which was really cold mid-winter (both times we've been this winter, our table has been here). My G&T has been amazing here before (with cucumber and juniper berries) but this time was very average. And although the Scottish waitress (maître d'?) was efficient, her voice went right through us all, so it kind of spoilt the atmosphere. Would definitely go again for a special occasion, but would ask for an table inside and for a less squawky waitress :0

I hadn't visited the Angel for 5 yes having been a regukar. The food was superb, just as I remember. The staff/service was poor. The staff were slovenly, They were promoting G&T's but didn't make them properly, no lemon/line/cucumber/grapefruit (dependent on the gin) in either of the gin's I ordered. The wine was taken from an open bottle and didn't taste fresh. Staff were pleasant but not on the ball! Good amazing!

I took three of my colleagues to the Angel as a farewell lunch on my retirement. It was a lovely treat and as my rating shows every aspect of the visit was lovely. I haven't been to the Angel for a couple of years and it was wonderful to see the quality had not fallen off at all.

I was very disappointed with my meal at The Angel. We had a shared starter which tasted fine but was very small given the price. My friend enjoyed her main course but my trio of fish was pretty tasteless and very small.

I booked a table for 2.30 on Saturday to have a special catch up with a friend. Unfortunately we were late and arrived 15 mins after the table was booked for. Lots of apologies from us of course which were met by being informed that the kitchen was closed. I confirmed we had booked for 2.30 and the gentleman went off to check - no, staff have definitely gone. When I asked what would have happened if we had been on time and the staff were off at 2.30 ? No answer, got a shrug. I had been looking forward to trying the Angel as I live locally - I dont think I will try it again. I appreciate we were late, that is not The Angels fault - I would encourage them though to consider how they manage this situation differently moving forward, even if that means not accepting bookings after 1.45 for example as no-one wants to be rushed with ordering or find out they can only have ice cream for pud as the staff have gone.
