Excellent lunch for eight people. Very good menu with plenty of choice. Staff could not be faulted; pleasant, courteous and helpful. Will certainly visit again.

Had 3 enjoyable meals from the A La carte menu during a 3 night stay. Food was nicely presented and very enjoyable. There were 3 different teams of waiting staff on the 3 evenings and the quality of service was a little variable - some evenings you got a fish knife, no bread one evening, very delayed side order another, bill for the wrong table on another - all small hiccups and maybe the maitre d's needs to stand back and manage the waiting staff a little and remind them that this a fairly expensive dinner that the customer is paying for - and not a pub diner.

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to read about the inconsistencies on each of the nights you ate with us. I have made sure to discuss this with our training manager so that we can improve for the future. We hope to welcome you back to The Angel in the near future.

We regularly meet up with friends at the Angel which is a handy a midway point, and without fail feel a generous welcome from the staff. Our recent stay was no exception ,we sat in the sunshine- lit Courtyard for a delicious lunch which extended way into the afternoon. a lovely leisurely day .We were well looked after by Patrick and Janet, Thank you both. Dinner and breakfast in the Oak room were to the expected high standard, , and our visit was completed by a trip to the nearby bluebell woods. Now we look forward to the next reunion.

Ate at the Angel on Thursday and Friday evening. Both evening the food was wonderful as always, as was the service, on Thursday we were served by Lewis who did an excellent job, despite it being his first shift in the Oak Room. On Friday we were served by the very sweet Leanne and the oh so charming Patrick. All these people made the evening more special.

From the moment you enter the restaurant you are treated as a VIP. Service is excellent as is the food. You are served appetizers whilst you look at the menu - separate appetizers for meat eaters & vegetarians. The bread is delicious - had to be careful not to get carried away & eat it all! I had the risotto as my main course, my husband had the veal - both were delicious. We both chose the Café Gourmand for dessert - 3 small desserts with coffee - excellent. All waiters/waitresses were very professional & friendly. Good wine - not overpriced. All made for a lovely evening.

We stayed at the Angel for two nights for our wedding in Usk. The stay was very nice and the staff exceptionally helpful. The food at both breakfast and for our wedding lunch was of a very high standard. What would have turned it from a good stay to a great one would have been a small gesture from the hotel to help celebrate the occasion for example a glass of fizz!

I only gave 3 for the food and drink section purely on two issues with our drinks. The food was first class and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Firstly i feel that £10 for a large glass of red wine is more expensive than some London restaurants.Secondly we ordered a bacardi mojito and we got a dark rum mojito with very "tired " mint. However minor things and will no doubt return.

Excellent dining in the Oak Room for a 60th Birthday celebration. The sea food platter was such a special treat, beautifully served and so much to choose from. Even though sharing we were regretfully unable to finish everything. The staff were so professional, attentive and well humoured. We will definitely be coming back for more.

Stayed on business and had the £30 three course dinner. The razor clams, sea trout & desserts with coffee were all excellent. At breakfast everything is freshly cooked which can take a little while but is good quality

I wonder if the Hotel has a realistic honest assessment? When you order steak . . . you get a steak knife when a couple are talking privately, the moustachio staff should not linger eaves dropping!!!! The large plates are a JOKE!!!!

My wife and I stayed at the hotel in room 21 from April 22 through to April 25. Our room was fine. Large and well furbished and equipped. We ate dinner in the Oak Room only once, on Sunday 22nd. I chose the Dover Sole and my wife decided on the Fillet Steak. Both these main dishes were poorly presented. No garnish whatsoever. My fish was passable, although not piping but my wife's steak was poor. She had asked for it to be cooked medium to well with no blood. It was served cold though burnt on one side and barely chewable. The chips served with the steak were cold. We commented about this at the time and the cost of two glasses of wine was deducted from our bill, but unfortunately the whole meal and evening were spoiled. A pity, because we like the hotel in general.

Thank you for your feedback. I am pleased to read you enjoyed your bedroom yet disappointed your meal did not meet your expectations. The menu items are presented as stated on the menu, however I will make sure to address each of your items with our head chef. I hope this has not marred your impression of The Angel Hotel, and we hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the future.
