A quirk of this pub, before it became the Brasserie, was the floor in the bar. On entering, the bar was about 5ft high, but as you walked up the sloping floor it was about 3ft 6inches. The floor ran down that much!

It's true about that bar. I remember the bare floorboards too. It was dinner time. I think I was fifteen and from school we'd spent the morning at the tech. My mate said that he'd heard that it was easy to be served in the Angel, so we took off our ties and wandered in. It was a proper spit'n'sawdust place. Just a couple of old fellas standing by themselves - looking as though they were in some kind of purgatory and an equally cheerful old bloke behind the bar - who obviously couldn't care less how old we were. I think I had a pint of bitter. The fact that it was so easy to be served didn't encourage me to go back. :-)

We were managers there in the early 80's, and it was a cracking little pub. We had some great customers.

My husban'd great, great grandfather John Leyland was landlord of this pub 1870-1872 when he died.
His widow Elizabeth (Betsy) was still the landlady on the 1881 Census, but moved before 1891.
