user reviews of the Angel Inn, Andover

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Recently moved to Andover and this is the best pub by far. It has a good sized pool room with its own bar, a fantastic juke box, great atmosphere, traditional old world decor and friendly staff. The beer is competitively priced and kept well. Apart from event nights it does seem a little quiet though and I hope this wonderful old pub doesn't eventually have to close. I think it needs a darts and pool team to liven it up a bit. Serving basic food (sausage, egg and chips) at night would help.I'd eat there every night if I could! This is a pub worth saving. Please God, don't let it become a Weatherspoons!

The oldest pub in Andover and a lot of history, generally well kept couple of ales from the Greene King line in IPA and Abbott. Very small pool room but otherwise decent sized front and rear bars. Maybe not as trendy a place now for the younger drinkers of Andover but a good place to visit for a few drinks with friends.

I like this. Amazingly quiet - how do they keep going? Perfect place if you want to sit and read on your own, or have a 1:1 chat with another person, and not be disturbed. I guess younger people would say it lacks 'atmosphere', but it's clean. And the one barmaid when I was there was very friendly (and cute). Decent pint of Abbott; they also have IPA.

A decent pub with a good selection of beers. Mostly coming from the Green King stable. Nice decor and reasonably friendly staff. Does seem to be pretty quiet though.

Greene King pub with well-kept beers. First pub you reach on walking into town from the train station, and handy for the bus station too. Good place to go alone or to wait for someone else because there are quiet corners where you can sit and read or just enjoy the ambience and background (60s/70s) music.

Visited again for the first time in 3 months. New tenants have turned it around. Nice atmosphere and the real ale kept very well indeed

a pub that has many many faces through the years, but has finally settled on one that is liked by all that go there. Quiz on monday live music and much more. The food has been given a face lift too and i very nice. recommended to everyone.

Has certainly changed over the years and whilst it doesn't seem to bad it does seem pretty empty these days with little custom.

Currently pub is on life support and in a coma. Greene King have it on the market. Not open 3 to 6 Monday to Friday and not at all on a Sunday.

Not a fan at all. Small cramped, pool table is awful. Beer reasonably priced. Very alternative rock based pub...

Having spent most of my student life either drinking or working in the Angel I've seen it go through so many changes and refirbishments. My favourite landlords were Jez, the awesome Australians and of course Jo who now owns the pub. It has a lovely atmosphere and is ideally situated in the town. I'll always remember the Angel, eventhough I now live in Bournemouth.

Average beer, average prices, reasonable atmosphere, reasonably friendly staff (if you don't have a problem - if you do then they aren't that good), just don't use the jukebox cos even if it is on it doesn't mean they are playing it through the PA so either always ask them or just avoid it.

This used to be a great pub in the eighties and probably still is. I now live in Detroit, USA. A bit different to Andover!

The Angel Inn has great service but what makes it great is from the chantry center (a shopping) that is adjacent there is side exit to the Angel Inn's beer garden soo after a hard days shopping (being draged round the shops by the missis you can settle down with a cool beer. Heven.
