|A Sam Smiths house so the prices might even have been affordable for the former inhabitants of this part of London when it was a notorious rookery in the nineteenth century. Hence, choice isn't always what it could be but if is a more genuine offering than many central London offerings. Upstairs rooms are an addition of recent years and provide calm while I once saw all 3 members of the band Saint Etienne in here.|

|Next on the Angelic crawl this is a Sam Smiths pub so you what to expect drinkwise. Friendly service despite how busy the place was. Layout of the place beyond my comprehension, too busy to explore properly. Worth a visit.|

|Two things I've always liked about Sam Smith pubs: 1) always very traditional, unspoilt. 2) Very reasonable prices. The Angel definitely scores on the first one, but... 11quid for a bottle of Taddy Porter and a bottle of Pale Ale??? Look, I know that as a central London/St Giles/Soho/Covent Garden type of drinker I'm going to get exploited a bit, and bottles are always going to be more expensive, and I'm not going to get the same price as the Nag's Head in Chapel Allerton or the Crystal Palace in York, but 11quid does seem a little, well, steep. Extortionate is another way to put it. The brewery's pub nearby, the John Snow, also has these ridiculous bottle prices. I had thought Sam Smith's was a much better than normal company. Not at those prices (and, yes, the Old Brewery on hand-pump is cheaper, but seemed very ordinary in this pub).|
What is the Sam Smith's pricing strategy now: exploit central London drinkers? We're not all tourists or on 50k a year...

|nice traditional oasis in the waste land that is st giles. |
one of the many sam smiths pubs in the west end, so nice beer, but £4.30 for a lager is offensivley expensive but what can you do?
Although its been rebuilt in the gerogian or victorian era, the history of the Angel pub is brilliant. Apparently it was a stopping point for a final 'one for the road' for those on their way to the tyburn tree down the other end of oxford street. the history isnt in any way celebrated in the pub though, but its a name that pops up a lot in various history books.
