Review based on September 2018:

Let the food do the talking here; while there is probably some reticence from "The Angel" of past, rest assured that the food is absolutely fantastic (see images) and great value.

3 courses for £20, is very well priced for the quality indeed. The menu is diverse, and caters for varying tastes (well done!)

Starters we had a fish cake and chicken roulade. Mains were pig cheeks and confit of duck. Dessert was clotted cream rice pudding and sticky toffee pudding.

Very tasty and enjoyable.

Interior is still very much like a pub, but wouldn't be fair to remove a star rating based on this, as we came to experience the food and left really happy.

You could spend less with a voucher at Prezzo, but you'd miss out on a really high quality menu.

Visited this fledgling restaurant (new owners) recently and to say I was impressed would be an understatement!
After a debating what to try (everything sounded delicious) I opted for the chicken ballotine and ham hock starter and confit duck main.  My husband went for the pulled pork and chickpea ragout followed by the sea bass.
The first indication of things to come was the basket of freshly baked sourdough bread which was delicious.
Every single dish was spot on, the meats in the terrine were so moist and the confit duck was the best I've had outside of the Dordogne! A few cheeky tastes of my husbands dishes confirmed similar success.
All this and a couple of glasses of wine from a small but interesting wine list came to less than £50. Considering a  meal at various chain restaurants with reheated/microwaved food would be similar in cost, I certainly know where I would rather spend my money!
We will certainly be returning and would recommend anyone thinking of visiting to get your table booked!

Fantastic food brilliant service and a friendly atmosphere. Phoebe and Molly were superb very chatty and welcoming. I dined alone and was made to feel so welcome. The food was sooooo tasty and different. All home cooked and freshly prepared on order and it shows!!! I had the fish soup and the roast brisket on a bed of creamy potato topped with beautifully roasted carrots and smothered in a peppercorn sauce. I give it 6 out of 5 stars. I will without a doubt be back for more. To avoid disappointment I advise booking before hand as I can see it being very busy regardless of what night it may be. Happy dining.

Been back again and beautiful again!! Had soup again to start followed by pan fried fillet steak, sauteed mushrooms and triple cooked, fresh, sea salted chips with roasted shallots. My steak came rare, as requested, tender and succulent, fresh and tasty. I can't fault my experience. Sharon, Molly and Lawrence your service is fantastic and the food you serve is nothing short of perfect, thank you.

This was my first visit to The Angel, but it certainly won't be my last. From the very welcoming staff, to the delicious food which was all freshly cooked, I couldn't find anything to fault. Set in a nice location, it is a friendly place to enjoy a most satisfactory meal & drink. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.

A very different menu but....whilst the food was interesting, I had the lentil burger, the overall impact was disappointing. Served with just a bowl of French Fries, I felt it could have done with something to make it special. The service was excellent, the ladies were extremely polite and efficient. But not somewhere I would want to rush back to.
