Quinno _ left this review about Angel in the Fields

Wasn’t much looking forward to my revisit so my chum could tick it off as part of our Sam’s Challenge but things seem to have improved. A former Henekeys pub, the neo-Gothic fittings remain with the floral-themed stained glass windows being the star; and visiting during early afternoon meant that they were better appreciated. The downstairs bar is really quite small but has had a spruce-up in the last 10 years, and the appearance of burning logs in the large stone fireplace helped immensely. Interesting cross-section of Sam’s punters – students, soaks, North Americans and faded bohemians who no doubt were minor celebs in the area 50 years ago. No cask OBB here, but my Man in a Box was the best example I've had. Worth a look-in.

September 2010
A two floored Sam Smith’s outlet located five minutes away from Oxford Street. As with many Sam Smith’s pubs in London there’s a bit of heritage factor about the place, in this case the wood panelling and ornate ancient-looking stained glass windows downstairs public bar which otherwise feels very drab and small – not helped by the uncomfortable seating – most depressing. The lounge bar upstairs is a rather nicer looking affair and should be quite cosy. However it wasn’t because the staff had propped open the downstairs door so cold air was blowing up the wind tunnel stairs and into the room; there was a fire there but it doesn’t look like it gets used much which is a shame as this room could be a real selling point. There’s a dartboard available, although you’ll be lucky to get near it most evenings. Drinks-wise, it’s the usual Sam Smiths selection (excluding their token real ale of OBB) and cheap prices so you takes your pick. I did notice in here that fridge wasn’t particularly well stocked – I couldn’t locate any of their Oatmeal Stout for example. To be honest I didn’t enjoy my visit and I doubt I’ll go back again now I’ve seen the windows. Rated 5

Sam smiths pub that is maybe a bit rough round the edges compared to some of the other pubs they have in London. Quite a dark interior lightened a little by the stained glass windows. Didn’t visit upstairs.

One room Sam Smiths pub with the bar to the left. Nothing unusual on the bar itself. I found it bit gloomy because of all the dark wood, unlike Tris C below.
