    The no fuss approach to the venue hire.

    The food ordering was a little complicated, so much so that we under ordered, even after consultation with the manager. We had to order extra on the night.

    The staff at the Angel were great and super helpful - we asked for a craft beer on draught in the upstairs bar as there wasn't one as standard and they set this up for us no problem. The space was a good size for our group of about 35. The venue let us bring our own decorations and leave them there to collect the next day so that we didn't have a to pack up on the night. Location is fantastic! Overall a really great pub venue.

    4.8 Booked The Angel's Lounge for Christmas Party event for 32 guests

    Staff were super friendly, helpful and efficient, going above and beyond to make sure we had a great party. Food was good value and good quality, particularly given that it was catering for a large group and the room was ideal - private and with lots of natural light. Would definitely use again.

    There were a couple of things arranged with the events manager that weren't passed onto the venue e.g. reserving an area for drinks after our meal and a complimentary drink on arrival. Didn't cause an issue as we were checking up on things but could have if we had trusted that everything was in place.

    Friendly staff. Lovely venue. Fast service. Good food. Own music could be played. No real issues that impacted teh evening in any way.

    Room wasn't ready when we arrived.
    Was not advised ahead of time that the deposit would not be returned even if we hit the bar spend (which we did), instead it would be put on a tab. A bit cheeky.

    4.6 Booked The Angel's Lounge for Pub event for 50 guests

    Lea and the staff at The Angel were really helpful throughout, even when I completely missed the deadline for ordering food in advance of the event - they still worked with me and let me order what I wanted. The space was great, perfect size for my event and it looked gorgeous too. It was also one of the only ones I found at around that cost level and for that many people that had its own bar, rather than having to go to the main bar.

    The only thing I'll say was a negative was that the event food menu was really confusing! I had to ask someone to explain it to me multiple times before I could figure out what I'd actually pay for what I wanted. It was fine in the end but I'd just recommend to the venue that they revamp their menu a bit!

    4.5 Booked The Angel's Lounge for 30th Birthday Party event for 70 guests

    The space was fantastic for what we needed. It was my 30th party and there were about 45 guests. We all fitted in comfortably but it didn't look empty. There's a little room off to the side which we used as a cloak room which was really handy and kept it out of the way. It's right near Old Street station too, so really convenient for people to get to.

    There weren't many negatives at all. The only very small thing is the bar staff weren't around at the very beginning and we were concerned that people were going to start arriving. Once the party got going however, the service was fine and all went smoothly.

    Lovely venue and perfect offering for our party with flexibility for our plans as well as great service and food. Team were helpful and supportive in working around our requirements as a surprise party

    We were able to arrange and decorate the room as desired and play our own music and manage volume. We had a dedicated, very attentive barman who helped us manage guests and drinks. Food was great.

    The staff were friendly and helpful from the moment of booking right through to the day itself. The food was served at the allotted time and was very tasty. The staff even let the party go on till at least an hour after the allotted time which was incredibly appreciated. Thank you!

    I had a birthday party here with 45 people, and the space worked really well.
    The team at the pub was really helpful in and got back quickly to any questions or updates.
    The food was good value for money and really tasty.
    Also a great location, in walking distance to several tube stops.

    From the wonderfully helpful booking agent Lea, to the professional communications sent by The Angel's manager Lee, I knew this was the perfect booking for our party. The space was beautifully lit, the staff were wonderful and every guest complimented the deliciousness of the food. I would recommend The Angel's Lounge to anyone wanting an intimate party that offers a fantastic night to all guests in a great London location. 5 stars!
