user reviews of the Angel, Crewe

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

This is a pub located in a shopping arcade in the centre of Crewe. I called here last Sunday morning on the off chance that it might be open. But it seems that opening hours are fairly limited. Not even the Wetherspoons in the town was open.

Has now reopened as "Ye Olde Angel" (built in 1978 !). Only open at lunchtimes, basically serving "carvery lunch" (for £2.99 !) and pizzas. No decent beer

Still closed with a large "Pub For Sale" notice affixed to the front door.

Town center one roomed pub set below ground level, two real ales on from Oakwell, Barnsley Bitter is one, priced to compete with the Wetherspoons pub, food is local and is reasonably priced. The original Angel was where the gap was made for the precinct entrance is now. Worth a visit, even it is only in the afternoons.

A dive full of locals which look like they might actually kill you for being in their basement pub.

Awful atmospehere with awful beer. Avoid.

1970s basement pub built into a shopping centre- how many of these make the GBG? This one has, so I popped in to have a look.
Apparently built on the site of the old Angel, it looks decidedly uninviting and takes about 4 flights of stairs down to reach. It's pretty cavernous, with one large room full of seating on a few different levels- you know the type of place. No punters but a pool table so we made use of that.
The only beer-strangely- was Oakwell Barnsley Bitter, a pleasant and darkish beer that isn't usually found around here. At 1.60 it's a bargain- cheaper even than Wetherspoons- hence its inclusion in the Guide, no doubt.
You get the idea the place is struggling, and that's probably because such places are deeply unfashionable these days. In a way it's a shame because the beer is pretty good, if the atmosphere not exactly inspiring. If they could get a few more beers on they might attract more people in and could be onto something, but at the moment I'm not sure. Overall it wasn't a bad experience.
