This is a pleasant place in a character building. The standard of the food is high, but its not for the fussy eater. There's very little plain cooking, so if it's burger and chips you're after, don't bother. Portions are small as well. However, the taste is excellent and the presentation lovely. Service is good without being intrusive. It's not cheap, you might says on the pricy side. Overall though, it's well worth a visit. Recommended.

Overall thile angel is superb, however I would say its on the costly side, so they would benefit a lot by lowering thier cost, it would certainly fill the restaraunt on a Saturday night

The food was lovely. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because there was a problem with the starter. I had smoked salmon and it was supposed to come with avacado salsa, it was missing and when I complained the manageress didn’t sort it out.

Food was good. Would have welcomed more attentive service especially as it was a special occasion. Cocktails and coffees were very disappointing.

Were there for a 63rd Wedding anniversary, asked for a quiet spot, and were given the perfect location. The food was delicious and at the end they presented my in-laws with a plate of sweets and macaroons with happy 63rd wedding anniversary written in chocolate. A lovely touch which they greatly appreciated.

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.
Menu said coffee and mince pies....plural?? But otherwise all good

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.

The service is friendly and well informed, but it is the food which worth the visit.

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.
