From our first steps into the hotel until we left we were made to feel so welcome by all the staff who were attentive and friendly, we had high tea which was exceptional,a lovely selection of sandwiches, savouries and cakes including scones with jam and cream, so much that we needed a box to take some home with us.

I have lived in Abergavenny for nearly three years. Before the actual move here I stayed a couple of times at the hotel, and I have often eaten in the restaurant. And I have always had a great time. But this was the first time I have taken high tea at the Angel. And it was marvellous. My only regret is that it took me so long before booking!! My very grateful thanks to everyone who made it a memorable afternoon.

Everything about the experience was excellent, and all the staff were so polite, knowledgable and friendly. The food was amazing and the choice of teas was fabulous, and anything you can not manage to finish is boxed up for you to take away.

My family and I took my Dad to the Angel Hotel for his 90th Birthday. I had pre booked High tea. My Dad has mobility issues and from the moment we stepped foot into the Hotel, the staff were amazing. Extremely helpful and accommodating and very mindful of my Dad's difficulties mobilising. High Tea was delicious. All food requirements and or intolerances are catered for. Huge choice of teas available as well as various other hot drinks. We had a lovely afternoon and the staff's caring attitude towards my Dad was very touching. Would not hesitate to return, cannot recommend highly enough.

2 friends both celebrating birthdays with afternoon tea - we were treated with the utmost care and attention without being fussed over. Perfect service. Lovely food and able to take home what we didn’t eat for the hubbies! Recommended highly.

The service by the hotel is excellent, being escorted to the Wedgewood Room is a great touch. I like my tea to be hot and the temperature in the small teapots did not hold the heat, however the staff did renew both tea and cup on request.

We were very pleased with the quality of the food and the drinks selection. The Wedgewood is an ideal setting and the service provided was excellent. One disappointment was the temperature of the sandwiches. We thought they were a little cold and could have been given more time to warm up after preparation & storage.

We had 2 special birthdays to celebrate and thought an afternoon tea would be ideal way to treat our mother and my daughter. The Angel didn’t disappoint; the food and venue were superb and the service impeccable. Would highly recommend.

High Tea at The Angel purports to be one of the best outside of London. Having sampled Afternoon Teas at The Lanesborough, Hyde Park Corner, The Langham, and Fortnum and Mason, I can confirm that tea at The Angel rates better than all of these with the possible exception of The Lanesborough. To be fair, at The Lanesborough one is entertained in a glorious banqueting room with conservatory, palms and live piano music, which notches up another star. Most of the London teas offer style over substance, things dangling from wires, globe like creations circling around culinary planets which are amazing to behold but disappointing to eat. This was our first tea at The Angel and we rated it highly. Staff were welcoming, relaxed yet professional and, apart from one staff member who appeared dreadfully confused when we asked directions to the Wedgewood Room, all were knowledgeable about the food, its contents and attentive with filling up the water glasses. It was good to be asked about allergies on ordering. We opted for the High Tea together with two glasses of a NZ sparkling wine (Prosecco was not available) one cappuccino and the recommended teas to accompany the food. Crockery was Royal Albert, Old Country Roses which is pretty but somewhat dated, a more contemporary, less fussy porcelain choice might have been better. Stem-ware was sparklingly clean and stylish. Tea came in either a glass infuser, or a Japanese style cast iron teapot, both had a sense of occasion. Food – yes there was plenty of it, and we were advised at the outset that anything we couldn’t manage could be boxed to take home. Savouries, which appeared to have all been made in house and which were warm comprised, a small cheese scone topped with grated cheese, a palmier topped with a tomato paste and pesto, a gougere topped with chopped smoked fish, a sausage roll and a leek and bacon quiche, all were extremely tasty – two of each were presented Sandwiches, comprised, egg and cress, coronation chicken, smoked salmon, cream cheese and cucumber and ham and tomato. The fillings were generous, crusts were removed and various breads put in an appearance. For me the bread was a little too thick, a couple of millimetres less would have been preferable. Cakes were petite but plentiful comprising, a topped cheesecake, a choux bun filled with crème patissiere, an iced chocolate and walnut brownie, a miniature banoffee pie, a poppy seed muffin filled with lemon curd, a cheesecake, etc. One of each was presented so we halved each of them, which was just about possible Scones came last, one plain scone served with jam and cream. It was a disappointment that the cream was whipped double and not clotted. My partner considered the scone to be a little too hard. High tea costs £31 per person, Sparking wine was £7 per glass – not cheap but given the amount of work we considered it to be reasonable. Overall we were very favourably impressed, less bells and whistles than London, but much more flavour and enjoyment The Hotel might want to consider asking its patrons if they would “like more of anything” – this has been a welcome question in other places where we have had tea, and more often than not the answer is “no”, but the apparent generosity gains brownie points. Also it does have to be clotted cream and not whipping cream, double cream and definitely not squirty cream.
