One of the better pubs I tried after my visit to the Wenlock yesterday. This is a small pub a stone's throw from Old Street station. I was quite impressed that in addition to the regular beer Doom Bar, they had 2 Thornbridge ales on yesterday - Crackendale & Jaipur. Neither are my kind of beer. But I tried the Crackendale and it was in good condition.

Another pub that the owners are looking to do up for the young crowd. A good pub that will soon be no longer. Sad.

An Angelic crawl last night started here. Very busy after work hours but professional multi-tasking barman was quick to spot me and was pouring my drink whilst still dealing with the previous customer. At least three screens showing sport. Good functional boozer.

The Angel is a fairly traditional style pub that will fill a gap if you have a gap that needs filling but won�t leave you with any great lasting impressions. The beers are rather mainstream (Bombardier, Pride and Greene King IPA) and not particularly cheap - Bombardier at �3.20 is at the stretching it end of pricing, even for London. The interior is neat and tidy with leather backed built in seating and a semi circular bar but the (I counted 3) plasma screens seem to be a bit too dominating. The patterned windows display Taylor Walker symbols which always remind me too much of Arsenal which isn�t good. The background music was also incredibly dull. There was a bar upstairs but I didn�t feel any great inspiration to explore the place that far. On the whole, a very average place, not one to avoid but certainly not one to make any great effort to seek out.

I actually counted four flat screen tele�s and my only gripe with this place was that I couldn�t actually find an area where I could sit and not be in full view of a bright blazing plazma. But that apart I found this to be a decent corner pub. Ale choice was as described by Strongers below and seemed to be well kept.
There is a few limited outside tables on the Leonard Street side, but the density of the traffic on the City road doesn�t make this place conducive to enjoying an outside pint.
