There are currently no laws in place regarding Covid, so all processes and procedures are a personal choice.

We ask, obviously, that is you have any symptoms of Covid, that you do the honourable thing and keep out of the way - many treat this pub as their second home and as such we have a good proportion of elderly patronage, so please respect that.

We have sanitiser stations that we recommend that you use and we, as always, clean and sanitise tables between sittings - but we did that anyway!

We ask that common sense and respect remains in mind during your visit.


Reopening on Wednesday 19 May at 5pm...

Thank you for your patience - but look forward to opening the doors again on Wednesday 19 May at 5pm. We will be a drinks-only service for the first week as we re-find our feet, so please bear with us! There's till lots of rules to abide by so we recommend firstly that you download the NHS Covid-19 App so that checking in is as quick and as seamless as possible. We do have to collect the contact details for EVERYBODY over the age of 16, so this will be manual process if you do not have the App.

The rulings are tables of six max, masks must be worn at al times unless when you're seated, give way to all oncoming customers to avoid unnecessary close contact, children are discouraged (see our separate child policy), no seating at the bar and all service must be at your table - this may means things are slower than you'd hope, so an element of patience is required please! there may be times when you are needed to pop back into the bar to make payment, but we have a screen up for mutual protection if this is required. Bring layers for all weathers! Enjoy and work with us to normality!!!


Waiting a few more weeks ....

Hi guys – some of you will be keen to get back to the pub for that slice of (ab)normality and we honestly cannot wait to be back in the driving seat offering our unique village pub atmosphere and welcome.

Although the “road map” allows us, on 12 April, to be an external venue, we, having fought very hard head vs heart, are choosing to hold fire until the (planned) May date which sees the use of our interior space also being allowed.

As a small business, the April date is too risky for us to potentially lose out financially once again. Restocking the pub is expensive and to face further losses due to the Great British weather alongside the obvious reluctance to then want to be sitting outside (umbrella or not), has made our heads want to wait those few extra weeks longer. We will of course keep you posted with our May reopening date.

In the meantime, we are still “entertaining” twice weekly with our online quizzes via Facebook live – Fridays for Music Quiz (celebrity guest presenters!) and Sundays for general Pub Quiz – if you’ve never been in the Angel before, joining our quizzes are a great way to see what you’re missing out on in a live environment! #LaughThroughLife !

Di still virtually catches up with The Lazy Oyster Jazz Band very Monday night, so rest assured they will be one of the first live offerings in the garden on our agenda.

Lots of love everyone – this has been a long, cold stint and we look forward to offering some warmth, metaphorically and physically, soon.

Yours, Di and Nick

Note: We operate a zero tolerance policy towards bellends!
