“Delicious Sunday Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2013

I dined at The Angel with my mother and we were very pleased with our choice - very much homely cooking. I enjoyed a traditional roast beef lunch with all the usual trimmings. The meat was really tender and tasty and the vegetables cooked to perfection - very rare I find for broccoli to be cooked properly, so 10/10 to the Chef. My mother enjoyed the smothered chicken and was accommodated on her request for a jacket potato in place of chips. Suffice to say clean plates at the end from both of us! The gentleman who served us was very pleasant and couldn't do enough. It is so heart warming to find a pub which not only does really tasty food but offers great friendly service and at fantastic value too. This is definitely a place worth travelling a few miles out to. We shall definitely be back and will recommend to our friends.

“Its Down to Choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2013

The Angel pub is a surprising pub just a few minutes from Junction 12 of the M1 Motorway. The Bar area is homely and comfortable and well used by the locals, but if you want a bit of privacy then there is a lovely room of the main entrance where Leather Sofa's adorn the walls.

The Restaurant also comes off the main entrance with two levels serving lunches and dinners on plain tables. Although the atmosphere is a little lacking and the menus were not too inviting, the actual choice would suit most people and added with the specials (pie of the day, catch of the day and soup of the day) you cannot fail to find something you would like. We chose the catch of the day (Trout Fillets served with new potatoes and fresh vegetables) and the Pie of the day (Steak and Ale Pie served with Chips and fresh vegetables) which was served within ten minutes by out attentive waiter. The fish was tasteless and the accompanying vegetables were dry (could have done with more tartar sauce) but the Pie was absolutely fantastic and the Chips were crisp and tasty.

All in all, this was a good pub with nice meals (if you choose wisely), great coffee and a good choice of beers.

“Fantastic Sunday Roast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2013

Had a delicious sunday roast here today. Found 3 pubs in Toddington for a big family meet-up, decided to go for the middle priced one. But I cannot imagine that the expensive one could be any better...one of the best roasts i've ever had. Service was fast and staff very welcoming.

“Good value.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2013

Dined here for lunch on Sunday and was pleasantly surprised. A clean and tidy dining area in a traditional pub, although a little plain. Pleasant and friendly service, well kept IPA and fair coffee.
Limited menu but the food arrived promptly and was well presented. Decent burger, very good chips, bacon wrapped chicken in tomato and basil sauce tasty as were the fresh garlicky mushrooms to start.
2 starters, 2 mains, 2 coffees and 2 pints came to £24 with 2 for 1 tastecard offer. Would visit again when passing, good value.
Pleasant outside seating overlooking village memorial garden and pond.

“A personal welcome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2012

This is a exceptionally welcoming helpful establishment where our custom was clearly appreciated from the moment we stepped in the door. We went for a lunchtime drink and returned in the evening for a meal. Yes, the food is quite ordinary pub grub, but it was well prepared, delivered as quickly as possible (given that our crowd had arrived in great numbers all at the same time!) and very tasty. (Yes, the ladies loo cubicle opening directly onto the dining room was a bit of a shock but nowadays not unusual. I gather building regulations have changed and in this case I suspect before it became a disabled facility there had probably been another door inbetween.) The Angel is somewhere I will definitely revisit when next in Toddington.
