The Angel pub is a modern day independent boozer with traditional values. The staff and the locals treat the place like home. It changes throughout the day and something is always happening to keep us entertained. You can sit by the fire in our...more

We were walking by, my elderly mother and 6-year-old daughter needed the toilet. We went and asked the young male bartender politely if we could use it. The bartender said, "No you have to buy something." My daughter was about to wet herself, was crying,...More

This bar reminds me of my student days in the Kings Road and is all the better for that A warm, welcoming atmosphere in an obviously female and LGBT friendly environment is a great improvement over so many of the 'beer and football' high street...More

I am a huge fan of this place, I have been going on and off for about 10 years and have seen the staff and management change over the years, never to its detriment as each new face adds more to the charm. Located near...More

I've no doubt that the Angel Bar fulfils a niche market, and it is indeed a smart bar with a good range of craft ales. I use the word "bar" deliberately here however, because this is certainly more of a modern bar as opposed to...More

Visited for a few scopes of ale, this happened on an evening when you could pitch up with your own instruments and play a few tunes. Not Karaoke as people were actually playing and singing. Good relaxed pub, cozy.
