“DO one thing and do it well” is the philosophy when it comes to the food at the Angel in Poole.

As well as offering the chance to unwind over a beer or a glass of wine, this historic pub has a simple and popular menu for diners.

The offer is a range of 10-inch pizzas priced between £10 and £12 – though they are made even more attractive by special offers on different nights.

They are made from scratch and served from 12noon-8pm daily.

There are 14 varieties, starting with a Plain Jane (tomato, buffalo and grated mozzarella topped with fresh basil) . The menu then offers everything from a Big Cheesy (blue cheese, goat’s cheese, Parmesan, buffalo and grated mozzarella) and the Popeye (goat’s cheese, caramelised red onions, spinach and mozzarlla) all the way up to a Cowgirl (chicken, mixed peppers, red onion and mozzarella) and a Sombrero (chicken, sweetcorn, blue cheese, grated mozzarella topped with jalapenos).

On Mondays, two pizzas and a bottle of house wine cost £28; on Tuesday, a pizza and a pint is £12. On Fizz Friday two pizzas and a bottle of Prosecco cost £28, or you can order a bottle of Prosecco on its own for £12, from 5pm.

And if you want to try them on a night in, the pizzas are now available on Uber Eats.

The pub is in the Old Town, near the Quay and a stone’s throw from the High Street.

Licensee Jo Reading and partner Sean Merrylees run the venue, which reopened last August after Admiral Taverns spent £180,000 on an extensive refurbishment.

The interior was upgraded and made more welcoming, as was the courtyard area behind the pub, which is equipped with outdoor heaters.

The offering at the pub is drinks-led, and the Angel won the independent Cask Marque accreditation award with a score of 20 out of 20 for its cask beers. Those cask beers are currently Ringwood Brewery’s Forty Niner, London Pride and Doom Bar.

It also stocks Camden Town Brewery’s Hells and Pale Ale and there is a selection of wines, spirits and lagers as well as hot drinks.

The diary is full of events, with regular quiz nights, open mic nights and games nights, as well as live music on Saturdays.

There is a darts board, with the pub’s own team, and there are games for customers to use.

“People are saying it’s comfortable and they can sit down, relax and chill out, read a paper or just sit by the fire,” says Jo.

“I feel so proud – it’s good to get that positive feedback.”

The live events are set to continue this spring, with a Sausage and Cider Festival for Easter Sunday, repeating the success of last August bank holiday. There will be a range of different sausages and ciders, music and entertainment.

The Angel is at 28 Market Street, Poole BH15 1NF and It can be found online at angelpubpoole.co.uk or on Facebook (@angelpubpoole).
