Real Ale Ray left this review about Angel Ale House

A traditional style pub, which has won North Warwickshire Camra Pub of the Year in 2016, 2017 and this year along with Cider Pub of the Year. Six pumps with five in use on our Saturday afternoon visit. The beer choice on our visit was Oakham Citra, Oakham American Red Rye, Beowulf Welgild, Iron Pier Porter, Bylth Brewery and North Yorkshire Brewery White Lady. I went for the Beowulf, which was in top class condition. There was an old vinyl record collection and turntable near the bar, where you could choose an album you wanted to play. The landlord and landlady were out for the day on our visit and had left their daughter in charge, who was delightful and had a great knowledge about beer.

Aqualung . left this review about Angel Ale House

In a town that generally surpassed my low expectations this seemed to be the main attraction as far as real ale goes. The main bar area is at the front with what looks like a dining room to the rear which includes a tiny bar counter.
There are six hand pumps on the main bar which had Oakham Citra, Blythe Palmers Poison, Salopian Oracle, Ashover Amberella, Leatherbritches Ashbourne IPA and Beowulf Dark Raven. I tried the Citra (£3.20), Palmers Poison (£3.00)
and Ashbourne IPA (£3.50?) which were in pretty good nick given it was a hot day.
This was certainly the pick of the options in Atherstone, it's a shame that it's a late opener on weekdays.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Angel Ale House

Very appealing old in on the Market Square, with a black-and-white decorative façade (albeit with a slightly outdated banner proclaiming its status as the local Camra branch Pub of the Year 2016). However, the front bar, with its fairly limited amount of seating behind the two bay windows, still looks the business. There is also another bar at the back (not visited). Decent selection of real ales in a variety of styles, including a fine Beowolf Dragon Smoke Stout. Well worth seeking out.
