Angel Hotel16 Coinagehall Street
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.
