Update. One of the previous bar staff has now taken over the lease of this much loved traditional local from the short-lived and not too popular recent holder. This is a great improvement. The beer is decent, with at least one local brew (currently Abbeydale Moonshine) and THE PIES ARE BACK! Locally made ones - all at £5.95 including chips or mash and mushy peas.
This is a smashing little pub on the western edge of the city. The weekly highlight though is probably the pub quiz that takes place every Tuesday evening from 10PM - presided over by the hilarious Sheffield Wednesday devotee "Gillie", himself ably assisted by the glamorous Annie behind the bar.
The pub offers a range of tasty bar meals, such as corned beef fritters with egg and chips, chili con carne, and lasagne, and has the award-winning Timothy Taylor's Landlord's bitter on tap - a reason in itself for dropping by.
Inside, the pub has a bar area best described as cosy, but a bigger than average car park means that it is easy to park and pick the car up in the morning if necessary.
Quiz night is capped by "sit down bingo", giving punters the opportunity to leave a few quid better off, and the generally homely and welcoming atmosphere makes this a fine establishment that needs to be supported and patronised as much as possible.
Thoroughly disappointed and only half ate my meal of hunter's chicken in respect that the chicken was hard and chewy to eat, plus the cheese and bacon topping was cremated. Chips weren't much better.
I know I should have complained about the food but was mindful of the 35-minute wait it took in getting the meal, and the thought of the family having to wait around until I'd got and eaten a replacement.
Went to the York on Saturday the 14th July. The decor is great, superb selection of real ales. The bar staff were totally miserable, not one of them could raise a smile or a welcoming hello. Spoilt what should have been a good night out.
I wandered into the Green Room by chance. I saw they were serving breakfast and needed something to cure the damage done by the night before. It was the best full English breakfast I have had in ages! The portions are huge for the £3.50 price. The music was eclectic and the bar staff was friendly. Be sure to bring cash, as they do not accept cards. I will be going back!
Went to the Angel pub on Sunday 8th July and was absolutely disgusted by the service my wife and I received. We waited 40 minutes for our Sunday lunch, then the chef came with our food and said we were at fault. Very poor indeed. Will not go ever again. Really amateur service.
Be careful what you order from the menu is the best advice here. I was bitterly disappointed with my visit to Ye Olde Mustard Pot. When I chose pork chop and mash from the menu and that is exactly what I got for £10 - one solitary chop, not of great proportions, and mash, not a pea or carrot or anything else in sight.
I asked when it was presented to me if the dish came with veg. and was informed it did not. I asked if veg. could be bought as a side and was promised some. After 15 minutes I finished eating, without the veg. appearing. What a boring plate of expensive chop and mash.
When paying at the till I was asked if everything was alright with my meal, to which I replied if the dish was served without veg. this should be offered or at least pointed out when ordering. I said the meal was not of value and was spoiled because of the lack of interest on the plate. The bartender replied he was sorry about it but did nothing to rectify the matter. Happy to let customers leave displeased and knowing they wouldn't be back.
Nice surroundings but disappointing fayre. Not somewhere to return to.
