Not in plain view from the Market Place but a sign did help us find it. Up a ramp and down a short corridor to the "bar". All the barrels are at the rear of the bar and there are no pumps or fonts on show. Blackboards above the bar list all the ales and ciders available. Jaipur was on form. This is a place I could happily return to.

Lovely micropub with a good choice of ales, plus ciders, wines, gins and juices all at reasonable prices. Comfortable seating inside, and a row of tables and seats outside too. Brewery choices were Driftwood Spa, Oakham, 3 Thornbridge beers, Bridgehouse, Titanic and Sarah Hughes. We enjoyed our Thornbridge Cortado and Bridgehouse Landlady beers.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Angels Micropub

Don't be mistaken when you arrive at the Market Place and see a closed down corner shop named Angels. The real micropub is tucked away in the far right hand corner of the square. This micro is named after a thatched pub that once stood here for over 200 years, which was demolished after a murder was committed in the pub in the 1800's.
This micropub is owned and ran by the owner of the Beehive in Ripley, he obviously knows how to run a good pub as his ales were all in top condition. 7 ales on stillage served through a hatch, prices were all set at the £3 mark regardless of strength. So we went for the Titanic Kiwi Fleet, Oakham Citra and Thornbridge Jaipur.
The interior of the pub was of reasonable size and the mural across the back wall of a local mill was a main feature, along with some further murals of the old thatched pub. The pub also has a choice of 10 ciders and a range of cobs at £2 each.

This one is a genuine micropub tucked away on the South side of Market Place. Inside it's a single rectangular room with the servery and cellar on the right as you enter followed by the split level drinking area which has a wooden floor and low tables and chairs. Beers are served straight from the cask in the cold room behind the small servery. A blackboard listed eight beers one of which had gone. The remaining seven were Titanic Plum Porter & Chocolate Vanilla Stout, Thornbridge Jaipur IPA, Aurora Ilkeston Pale, Dancing Duck Ayup, Hairy Brewers Fear The Beard and Oakham Citra. At this point I gave up on going anywhere else between here and Derby and went for the Fear The Beard and Jaipur (both £3.00) which were excellent. The Jaipur was cheaper than the Matlock JDW in fact all beers and ciders here are just £3.00.
I thought this was a top micropub, it's only open 12:00-22:00 Thursday to Sunday but is one I will definitely try to get back to.
