Potato Chips and Poker Chips

December 5, 2009

The dark nights and miserable weather are here and the Angel has started experimenting with poker to provide some light hearted entertainment and maybe a chance to win a few quid.

We’re playing Texas Hold-em no limits poker, where you get dealt 2 cards and there are 5 on the table with the best hand of 5 made up from the two sources. The same game as Zynga poker at http://www.zynga.com/ and via Facebook. Beginners are welcome, if we’re playing for money it’s £5 or less to play and the winner takes all. Alternate Thursday evenings (next one 10th December) and alternate Sundays (when there isn’t a quiz) so next one 6th December. Sign up by 8.30 pm, game ends 11.30 pm if still in play.

The chip fryer is now up and running, adding a bowl / mug of chips to the menu of drinker’s food. No set tables and hushed conversation at the Angel, a burger and chips accompanied by a pint of ale with the music up loud is more our style. Come and try it.

Woofstock this weekend !

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.

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 !
