A lick of paint. The new pizzas and some better lagers and the angel has gone up in my estimation. Was actually pretty busy yesterday and I struggled for a table. Food is Wetherspoons but great value.

The Angel Inn is unpretentious and friendly enough. I popped in before going to Sadlers Wells to see a ballet matinee. I had a really good fry, the food arrived very quickly and was very reasonably priced. I would recommend The Angel Inn.

This is by far my favourite cafe in London. Really solid English Breakfast served the way it should've be. Red and white cheque tablecloths which are perfectly sticky (a good thing) and really good coffee. The builders and workmen who make up the regular clientele...More

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
