Cosy pub with a log fire, piano, quiz night and big beer garden. If hunger strikes, try the wild boar burger


The Angel is a local pub on the outskirts of the Northern Quarter serving a fine range of well-priced, locally brewed bitters. Liverpool Organic Brewery and White Lion can usually be found on the pumps, and on-tap lagers go beyond the usual mass-produced swill. Wooden floors, a log fire and a piano in the corner give the place an old-fashioned feel. There’s also a cosy snug towards the back and a vast beer garden out back (with actual grass!).

The food is classic pub grub done well. Once the playground of chef Robert Owen Brown, the pub sticks to some of the gamey dishes he introduced, with the wild boar burger a particular highlight.

Events-wise, the pub hosts open mic music nights and a quiz on Mondays, which is well-attended and taken very seriously by the locals.

A cosy pub that could pass for your cool nana's house. 


Decent selection of beer, from your local ales to the continental larger you desire. Spirit selection is what you would expect from a pub, nothing huge, but nothing small enough to cause you any sleepless nights. 


The Angel offers some home made pub food which fills the gaps, as well as offering a fair selection of snacks. It's a good stop in-between town and the Marble Arch.
