No food here - it is a pub serving drinks and a large selection of gin. We tried various bar-man recommended gins - top of our list Edinburgh Rhubarb with ginger ale. If you wish to have a drink (especially gin) without being overwhelmed/distracted by food whizzing past you constantly then try here.

I really enjoyed my visit to this pub, it had a lovely atmosphere. However, given it's unique selling point is it's selection of gins I was somewhat disappointed. The selection was extremely wide which I'm defiantly not complaining about. The issue was that there was no gin list detailing the different flavours in the gins which meant I simply had... More

Used to love this pub but it's looking tired and dirty. Really lost its appeal. The garden is a mess; ash trays not emptied. The back room looks like someone's untidy lounge.

Popped in here for a quick drink while out with friends. Service was great. We were bamboozled by the huge variety of gin so asked for recommendations. We were given a shot each of rhubarb and raspberry gin. The raspberry is quite sharp but the rhubarb was delightful! I'll be back for more!

The pub looks at bit rundown from the outside but the inside is well presented. Has a good range of local beers and serves food.

I didn't eat here we just had dessert which was awesome, there's a large amount of GIN, before I came here I hated, and I mean hated gin. But after the lovely owner educated me on gin, well what can I say I really like it The bar is great

Really lovely pub. Nice homely feel and the staff couldn't have been friendlier, or indeed more knowledgeable on their vast, VAST Gin collection. If you're a Gin fan, the Angel certainly needs to be somewhere you make a pilgrimage to at least once, and if you want to try everything they have to offer, you'll probably need to go more... More

If you like your Gin's .. This is the place to go. Over 300 different gins are on offer at The Angel. Situated at the top of Woodbridge it is a quaint pub which also serves food

Okay, there is a lot more to this friendly pub that just gin, but the selection of 270 gins is truly spectacular. My brother and I spent a very happy 2 hours sat at the bar sampling the gin and chatting with the amiable and hospitable publican Chris. The pub no longer serves food.
