We found The Angel by accident a few months ago as it is tucked away from the main High Road in a one way street, which has plenty of free parking. Yesterday we returned to try out their Sunday Lunch and boy oh boy am I glad we did! They emailed us with a very special rate for this meal and having already enjoyed a very good weekday meal some time ago, we thought we would give it a go. Burford is well situated as a gateway into the Cotswolds, so we made a day out to include the meal. We were met with a very happy welcome from Jake, a young lad with a fantastic sense of humour, so a good start. We then had a choice of "Rare Beef" or Lamb, we had one of each. Whilst we enjoyed our drinks we had a short wait and then a perfection of roast dinners arrived. Really generous portions with five vegetables and an abundance of perfectly cooked meat with of course the famous Yorkshire Pudding. I am sitting here writing this review wishing I had my own "Tardis" so I could travel back 24 hours to enjoy it all over again. On the day, the prices for everyone was, main course £13.75, two courses for £17.50 or three courses for £23.00 and there were "specials" on the board. All in all, a sublime Sunday Lunch. We have only been in the small front restaurant to the right of the bar (which was full) but I noticed that there is another restaurant behind the bar and yet more tables in the secluded rear garden (This was also full) so they can cater for quite a few. I believe that this a 4* AA establishment and if the rooms are anything as good as the food then you are in for a treat. We then asked for the bill with more banter from Jake and we were introduced to Arthur the dog with his owner, I say introduced, more of being licked to death (by the dog in case you are wondering). Will I go there again, definitely! I would even pay the full price, something I rarely do, for it is that good. I do not think I would call it a drinking pub as the bar area is limited although to be fair there were a few locals enjoying themselves, but as an eating establishment, wonderful. There are many humorous water colours about the place, some are hilarious Oh dear lots more stars!!!
