Popped in to Angelus with my wife last night for an impromptu treat. It is situated at the site of the old Archery Tavern, an old hant of mine when I was growing up, and it is a very worthy sucessor. We had no reservation but we were warmly greated on arrival and seated straight away. We ordered from the set menu and started with a beautiful smoked duck salad, really tasty, full of flavour. This was followed by a succulent piece of pan fried veal served with a very creamy polenta. We finished off with a plate of cheese. We treated ourselves to a very nice bottle of wine but even at £40 a bottle I thought it was great value. The somnelier suggested a lovely desert wine to go with our cheese which didn't dissapoint. The room itself is very comfy and cosy, service was professional without being OTT. This is a place to enjoy good food and wine in a relaxed setting unlike at lot of places in the West End. We both thought it was fantastic, expensive but a really nice treat. I will pop back again maybe for the weekend lunch deal which looks fantastic value.
