My aunt and I dined here and we were amazed at how good the food was. We had the steak in Madeira sauce with veggies, it was amazing. Possibly the best I've ever had. Highly recommend.

Had been meaning to try The Angel for ages and finally got round to it tonight. It's a wonderfully quirky place and the service and food were both fantastic. Will definitely be going back before too long. Many thanks ladies :)

We cannot praise Carol and Alison highly enough for both the quality of the food and the personal service.

We were fortunate enough to eat here 2 nights in a row. For somewhere open 2 nights a week only, and with just Carol and Alison doing everything, the menu is incredibly varied. Every dish was beautifully cooked, and full of flavour, complemented by great...More
