Angel Hotel16 Coinagehall Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
This surprisingly spacious town centre hotel is open plan but with several distinct drinking and eating areas and a centrally-sited bar. A curious near-circular stone structure with wooden top fronting the bar is labelled the 'Angel Wishing Well', and is in fact a large collecting box for charity. Food is the dominant activity here at lunchtime and in the early evening - prepare to negotiate the cooking smells on the way to the bar! Both the bar area and a separate eating area are on a slightly lower level either side of the open central passageway from the front door - compare and contrast with the Seven Stars - a feature which affords good wheelchair access. A beer garden is out the back of the hotel. Live entertainment features evenings and may include karaoke.
