We had Groupon vouchers to visit this pub and to be honest we thought we were going to another Angel pub in Ferndown. How glad were we that we didn't go to that one. This place is superb. The friendly landlord and landlady made us feel really welcome. The glassware and cutlery were shining and the food ...... to die for. I had the belly pork and my partner had the chicken and both were cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. The landlord was attentive but not overly so and after our meal we were treated to a complimentary Lemoncino liqueur. We will definitely be back and would recommend this as the best place to eat in Dorset.

My partner and i had a wonderful meal at your pub the other evening, both the food and service were excellent. we look forward to returning soon, whether it be for food or just a good evening out. as the general atmosphere in the bar was great.

I have eaten at the Angel Inn a number of times since the new owners have taken over and could not be happier with the food or service! The food is always cooked and seasoned to perfection, the staff are always friendly and chatty without lingering. The new decoration is also lovely, cosey yet modern and the courtyard to the rear is a lovely place to sit and relax with a local ale.

We dinned here on a wednesday eveningbut were very supprised by the qyality of the food and service
Starters of Chicken liver and Madeira pate
With onion chutney and crusty bread and Prawns tempura
Served on a mixed leaf salad with a sweet chilli and coriander deep was superb
And the mains of Pan-fried fillet of Sea Bass
Wrapped in Parma ham, with Dauphinoise potatoes and creamy wilted spinach sauce and Slow-cooked crispy Wiltshire pork belly
Served with mashed potatoes , green beans in a apple and cider sauce was also top notch.
We dinned here with a voucher from a well known web site but would happily pay full price for food of this quality again.
Many thanks for a lovely evening
