We stopped in after a visit to the Gainsborough house in early April. There were ample available tables but the staff were being kept busy with a large party in an adjacent room. The service was actually good, however, and the menu was surprisingly interesting...More

Had a very disappointing Sunday lunch today. Yorkshire pudding was stale , 'crispy roasts' were soggy potatoes and the veg was clearly shop bought frozen. All totally unseasoned and tasteless.

My grand dads brother used to play with Ipswich town FC ( 1895-1907 approx.) I believe he was the landlord at the Angel at one time. Could anyone confirm this Thanks.
