Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Was a fab pub/restaurant but sadly another covid victim. Not looking like any prospect of reopening in the near or distant future. :(

Varied menu and a warm welcome in a genuine pub. Vegetarian options and of course delicious Welsh lamb to choose among. Local draft beers.

I’m not local and was worried where to find a nice vibe with good food. This would best a LOT of places for food quality and the staff went out of their way to get us a table and high chair on a booked night....The vibe and food here is great and we will be back! 10/10. Thanks!More

Very disappointed when we went for lunch on a Saturday. When the waitress brought the menus over to the table instead of greeting us, proceeded to cross off items in the menu that they had run out of. To our alarm this took her quite...a while. By the time the waitress had finished Erasing the mouth watering lamb shoulder, all the burgers, anything with pork and the extremely slow roast beef from the menu it was easier for her to relay what they had left. Very underwhelming sausage and mash (poor gravy), good fish finger sandwich and very good ploughman’s. However, this did take 40 minutes to arrive from the point of order. Furthermore, extra drinks that were ordered did not come. But we would return to give it another go. Very good atmosphere and drinks selection. More disappointed due to its good reputation which it didn’t live up to.More

I just feel compelled to reply, as a loyal customer, to LadyLuca. I sat in the bar area all day and early evening Sat 18th Jan. You’re right...it was heaving. Unheard of mid-January, but that must say something about it’s popularity. We didn’t eat on...this occasion so I wouldn’t dream of commenting under the heading “restaurant” as I didn’t order a meal - much the same as you, it would seem. There was a superb atmosphere. The staff were great and the service was friendly. We moved our seats and squashed around our table to let others join in the fun. We made new friends and had a wonderful afternoon. The Angel will never turn away custom. This is a difficult industry, yet the current owners have enjoyed 25 years of success. Yes, there may be the odd compliant, that’s the nature of customer service, but you didn’t even eat here. Seems unfair #justsayingMore

RUDE STAFF felt like they were trying to turn away customers! We didn’t stay for food because they made such a fuss that we were eating at 2:20pm, we weren’t allowed to sit anywhere we asked to (even though tables were empty) personally I think...that the waitress was lazy and avoiding work....Will not be visiting again. Much prefer the staff and service in Cawdor or Yr Hen Vic.More

Had lunch and a few beers here whilst on holiday in the Brecon Beacons. Found the pub to be really cosy and the staff very welcoming. We were impressed with the good choice of veggie and vegan items on the menu (and a lot of...nice meaty stuff too, but right now we're not eating much meat). The cask beers we tried were also in good condition.More

Dated decor. Untrained staff. Scruffy attire.Poor menu. Poor food. How does this place survive? It will take some vast improvement before I return to this establishment.

I made a booking for a well reviewed establishment with a very similar name “The Angel Inn at Salem” not realising there are two pubs in the area with very similar names. So our group of fifteen walked through the door on an exceedingly wet...Saturday evening only to be told our booking was somewhere else. After trying to call the other Angel and discovering our mobile phones did not work, the Llandelio Angel inn kindly called on our behalf, cancelled our booking and luckily found our whole group a table we could all sit around. The staff were very efficient, the food arrived quickly and our whole group had a lovely meal. The vegetarian menu was also very impressive. I personally tried the slow cooked lamb, this was truly mouth watering. The prices are very reasonable and the local beer went down a treat.More

Had the slow roast shoulder of lamb with home cooked chips an seasonal veg. It was sensational - the best meal I’ve had in ages. Lovely, reasonably priced “Grapefull Dead” red to go with it too. Great service from the staff on a busy night....Not to be missed!More

Went here for lunch, early afternoon in the summer holidays. I'd read about it online and it sounded good. Wen we arrived the exterior is really underwhealming, and we almost didnt go in. But I am really glad we did. the food was really, really...good. Lots of variety on the menu and really nicely presented. Service was spot on and teh decor has plenty of little quirks which add to the overall charm. Strongly recommended, in particualr the ploughmans lunch which was a beast to finish!More
