Extended opening this weekend

April 28, 2011

So, apparently there’s a wedding on or something so The Angel Inn will be open noon ’til midnight Friday, Saturday & Sunday !

Friday night we have a new band on – “The Doghouse” – and on Saturday it’s the legendary Lloyd Watson Band. Music generally kicks off around 9pm.

With Adam sweltering in the kitchen you can choose from our extensive bar snacks menu from noon through 9pm, now including puddings.

Sunday night is quiz night, £1 per person entry and winning team takes the pot. Monday we’re off and closed all day.

Ssshh

August 28, 2010

We’ve had a complaint to the local council about noise from the pub. Not specifically about Woofstock – our recent two day blowout music and beer festival in aid of retired greyhounds, but it didn’t help !

Yarwell has less than 150 houses and many larger villages can’t sustain a village pub, so we have to do our best to do things well and do what people want. The bands bring in regular users from surrounding villages and are an important part of keeping the pub afloat.

We are of course operating entirely within our license and could in fact put a band on every night of the week !

Tonights band is Animals Hellwing from Stamford. Next week is Di’s birthday and will feature The Glambassadors a 70s glam rock tribute band. Fancy dress welcome and encouraged. See our Facebook page for upcoming events.

Nick’s CD

September 10, 2009

The Angel’s landlord Nick Lander with his band The Supercalas have released their debut studio CD “Life In A Middle England Town”. Available for a tenner or less in the Angel, depending on your haggling skills, or on Ebay for £10 inc p&p.

This weekend Saturday 12th is Liz and Martin’s wedding evening reception in the pub.

Other future events :-

  • Sunday 20th September – Pub Quiz
  • Saturday 26th September – Lloyd Watson Band live
  • Saturday 31st October – Halloween – Hedrahelix live

Two Bands, A Quiz, A Birthday and Facebook

September 2, 2009

As the nights draw in (seemed to be dark at 8.30 last night) the Angel has not one but two bands coming up – Monkey Boy on Friday night and The Goodges on Saturday night (4th / 5th September). Both will kick off around 9pm and be out in the garden weather permitting.

Friday night is Di’s birthday, 21 again, so come along to celebrate – she’ll be on the customer side of the bar for a change.

Quiz night again on Sunday 6th September, 9pm start, £1 per person to enter in teams up to 6, winning team takes all the cash.

The Angel now has a group on Facebook where you can join up to keep in touch with events and fellow customers.

Finally there’s a Youtube channel for Woofstock ’09 where you can see the bands you missed, including the two that are playing the Angel Inn again this week.

Woofstock this weekend !

July 31, 2009

Don’t forget our mini music festival with bands on in the garden “out the back” from noon to 11pm. www.woofstock.co.uk for more details. Bring the kids (under supervision) and a picnic or indulge in our Barbecue. Free entry, donations to Greyhound Trust. As well as the new swish Weston’s Cider Ice on tap we’ll have three guest ales in addition to our resident Hophead from Brewster’s.

Saturday night August 1st is Karaoke, a week on Saturday we have a new band playing – Lime Shark – who recently played live on BBC Radio.

Pub quiz will be back on Sunday 9th August at 9pm.

It’s the Summer !

July 24, 2009

The Angel is getting a new product to keep you cool as the sun beats down – Cider Ice ! This is draught Weston’s cider pulled through a special chiller that tops off the glass with frozen cider – so you get the chill without the dilution of adding ice – Cool ! Installation scheduled for today 24th July 2009.

Further details available on the Westons web site or see a video on YouTube.

We’ve got loads of live bands lined up, practically one every Saturday night from now to November. Next up is Frankly My Dear who describe themselves as “laid back hippy/blues/rock” – this Saturday, 25th July, set starts around 9pm but be there earlier to get a good spot.

Next weekend is “Woofstock” our all day music festival in aid of retired greyhounds. Running from noon to midnight we’ll have several bands including village locals The Offlight performing out the back in the garden. There’ll be a barbecue and obviously plenty to drink, including Cider Ice.

Proceeds to The Greyhound Trust, Registered Charity No: 269668

Up next – Johnny Dee

May 27, 2009

Saturday May 30th sees the return to the Angel of Johnny Dee, Guardian contributor , Radio Cambridgeshire presenter and all round entertainer.  This will be his second visit and last time was an absolute hoot, so come on down.

The sun has put in an appearance recently, as can be seen from Dan’s peeling face and panda eyes, so the Angel beer garden is back in service for you to enjoy the warmth along with your favourite tipple.

There’s live music most Saturday nights, except for June 6th, interspersed with Karaoke. The next band I can remember is Lloyd Watson on July 4th – Independence Day – so I ought to take notes and put up a full list.

If you want to trundle down on your electric scooter for a quite drink then Thursday night is Tumbleweed night, usually hosted by the delectable Liz. See you there !

What’s on

February 26, 2008

Last Saturday night the Angel saw the first visit by Dan Perrin who sang solo with (amplified) acoustic guitar and gave an excellent performance of a wide range of music including hits from REM and others. Dan is half of a band called “The Lounge” and he’ll be returning to the Angel in future and should appeal to those who like a quieter more melodic repertoire. The pub was in an upbeat mood after watching the England rugby team beat the French again !

Next Saturday we see in the new month on March 1st with our regular session with Carly’s Karaoke. Singers and audience welcome, especially if you drink.

On March 8th local heroes Children of the Revolution will rock the Angel once again, the lads cannot be described as “quiet” but if Rock is your thing come along and feel the sound. You can hear them in action on MySpace or on their older page here. They are basically excellent and where better to hear them than The Angel !

The smoke is clearing……

July 3, 2007

Saturday 30th June saw the Karaoke night in the Angel mark the end of an era with the looming smoking ban. As of 1st July smoking is confined to the outside areas including the covered section “out the back” which has the statutory 50% open structure.

Coming up next is the Lloyd Watson Band playing at the Angel on Friday 6th July. Lloyd is an artiste of some repute having played with some giants of the music scene. Often described as “An outstanding blues-rock guitarist” he even has his own Wikipedia entry ! If the persistent rains have moved on by then the band will be performing out the back to you can relax in the evening sunshine with good music accompanied by the excellent selection of liquid refreshments from the bar.

Musical May !

May 16, 2007

Coming up on Friday 18th May we have the excellent band Children of the Revolution, who have a MySpace site that includes photos taken in The Angel at a previous gig.

Tuesday 22nd May brings Peterborough Morris to Yarwell for a spot of traditional dancing and a good deal of ale.

June 3rd will be Dana Wylie‘s last appearance at the Angel before she returns to Canada for a while. To get an impression of this lady’s following put “Dana Wylie” into Google ! This is a Sunday afternoon gig “Out the Back” in the beer garden, basking in the blazing sun.
