The Angelic @ N1

Don’t panic! I’m not reporting another pub closure! This pub, The Angelic, is very much alive and kicking on Liverpool Road, Angel.

One of Hubbie’s staffs was leaving today, and we decided to have lunch together at the pub.

They were a stone’s throw from a bustling Angel Central…

The Angelic was an airy and modern gastro pub and offered an extensive range of wines and foods.

Everyone except me wanted fish and chips, but I opted for mulled wine grazed ham…

The ham was really tender and tasty. It was not at all salty, and the sweetness of the grazing was lip-smacking good. The fish and chips were equally well cooked, and everyone seemed to be very happy. The service was swift and friendly. The atmosphere was relaxed and civilised – no loud music nor raucous crowd. It was 10/10.

Bella the Pup behaved very well too…

Once settling down on my coat, she was having a nap throughout our lunch. She was so quiet, we sometimes just forgot she was there! 10/10, Bella!

When we were leaving, a couple with a toddler wanted to say hi to Bella. We all squealed with delight when we discovered that both girls were 7 months old and even shared the same name. Their daughter’s middle name was Bella!

  1. Oooo that looks SO tasty! It is sad how many of the old pubs have disappeared…
    What a lovely coincidence to connect with someone with a child that shared ‘Bella’s birth month and name.. definitely synchronicity at play! xx

    • Yes, The Angelic was a great find, and I very much look forward to visiting them again. Nowadays, we eat at pubs than restaurants because they are dog-friendly.
      Another baby girl “Bella” was so cute! She was really smiley and happy to see my furry “Bella”😆xx

      • Yes – it’s strange isn’t it how we can take dogs into pubs but not into most shops or cafes which can be quite limiting! One of my ‘pet hates’ is not being able to walk along beaches when Dolly is with us.. x

      • I asked my regular sandwich place about it, and they told me if the kitchen was an open-kitchen style, dogs could not be in the dining area. Some people have prejudices against dogs due to their inexperience or ignorance. And some bad dog owners are letting down more considerate dog owners by doing antisocial things. I wish we have a more dog friendly environment…😭x

      • Me too.. In France, it’s common place to take dogs into the restaurants and I assume nobody dies as a result! I think it opens up conversations with strangers when you have a dog in tow, which makes the world a friendlier place. You’re right – it’s definitely a shame! x

  2. Hooray, hooray – another dog friendly venue! Dogs in pubs must stem from an old tradition and the food police have yet to get the claws into banning them. Keeping my fingers crossed on that one.
