A group of us went to the Angel for pre-dinner drinks because we wanted to sample a few of the many gins on offer. Unfortunately, there was only a glassful of Adnams Rising Sun left, and despite the barmaid saying she'd give us a selection of gins, three of us ended up with the same gin. Admittedly it was very...

Thanks for your review and I take on board your comment about the gin menus - the reason I stopped printing them back in 2015, as I was spending over £100 each month for people to take them home as souvenirs (the last batch of 75 lasted one weekend before they were all gone!) and I wanted to avoid this...

This has to be one of the most laid back and friendly bars especially if you are a gin lover. 4 of us went on 4th March 2017. We all have different tastes and the gins we were given were spot on. I personally like sweet and fruity I had a strawberry and raspberry gin which tasted like etons mess.... More

Came here for a quick pint but after seeing the amazing range of gins on offer, I decided to try a couple. Most of the gin places I have visited are modern bars, so this was a nice change. Enjoyable and worth a visit. It is open from 2-11pm.

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
