Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Went for a Sunday roast and was disappointed when we ordered what was supposed to be a Sunday roast. Brocoli and carrots with black cabbage covered with slices of the most horrendous chewing gum beef. I actually couldn't swollow it. Everything was bought to us...and piled up on top of each other and covered in gravy. First the veg, brocoli few slices of Carrott shredded black cabbage( tasted awful) and what looked like half a potatoe cut into four, then the chewy beef covered all this along with tons of too much gravy. On top was an enormous Yorkshire pudding which hid everything so you couldn't see the slop down the bottom. Didnt bother with any dessert, don't risk it. What an experimentMore

Angels share is a beautiful vestige just a stones throw from the market square nestled in a lovely arcade which acts as a thoroughfare to the town center. Lovely little gem I happened upon during my travels to England! The proprietor who is called Harpreet...is very welcoming & knowledgeable, there is a wide selection of liquors and the patrons are also very friendly. The proprietor Harpreet is also a lover of music and always has talented musicians performing. Check it out! Big Ralph - ChicagoMore

The music drew us in when we were looking for somewhere to finish off the evening. Duo making sweet music at the angels share. The owner has a large selection of spirits and served up a delicious gin and tonic. Well worth a visit if...you’re looking for a lovely way to spend a Sunday evening.More

We so wanted this place to be great but the wonderfully genial Harpreet really needs to decide exactly what he wants the restaurant to be. Is it a bar, restaurant, both.? It’s really too small to be both in my opinion. The quality of the...food is good but there’s not enough - or indeed any - choice available. The option of a la carte seems to have disappeared and you will be offered whatever has been prepared that evening. Service can be slow but and it was very cold in there the evening we went, one really feels that with an injection of money and a few ideas this place could be great. There’s only around 12 covers inside and more seating outside but obviously that’s not ideal in winter. I’d love the place to have a professional makeover, more staff are needed and more food choices available but there seems to be a loyal clientele to keep the business going which I’m glad of because he’s such a nice guy (which is why I’ve score so high). Perfect for a small private party I’d say..More

Tucked away in the arcade this is a real hidden gem in the heart of Hitchin. We went on a Friday night and had an amazing curry. So fresh and tasty. We also enjoyed some fantastic live music. To top it off Harpreet was a...great host, really welcoming and great personal touch. Will definately go back...highly recommended. Thanks Harpreet for a lovely evening!!More

Have been a few times now, usually a Friday or Saturday when there is generally live music playing, and the impression is the same - relaxed, friendly, attentive service, lovely Indian Tapas, good selection of cold (lager) beers, wine and spirits - whiskey, rum, you...name it. Fantastic spot in the arcade just ideal on a warm evening.More

It always amazes me just how lovely, thoughtful & caring the owner is in this place, Singh who goes out of his way to give top 1st class service and gives special attention to every-one. There is often fine entertainment in the exquisite "al fresco"...seating area with heat lamps above. The carefully laid out tables and chairs are an honor to sit and you can enjoy many a good whiskey or bottle of wine.More
