Came here for pre-cocktail drinks and dinner. The bar downstairs has a pretty good selection of beers, but upstairs it's a bit more limited as its just an 'event bar'. I had the fish and chips and was quite happy with the portion, although could have had more mushy peas (they should ask people if they want mushy peas... I know its a marmite thing mushy peas but heck I like them so the more the better!). Everyone else seemed pleased with their meal as well. Not a bad place to go for meal before heading out for evening.


The location of The Angel is really good as it’s right in the heart of Old Street.  However, it never seems to be that busy so it must be doing something wrong.  The crowd is fairly mixed and maybe that’s why - it doesn’t seem to have a particular identity.  OK for a quick drink, but I wouldn’t spend too much time here.
