Pub Layout

The pub has a main bar that is positioned in the centre of the pub which services the restaurant area to the left and the lounge/sports bar to the right. The restaurant area is split into two sections via an archway and has a combination of fixed and loose tables and chairs. One area could easily be sectioned off for private functions if needed. The lounge/ sports bar is completely separate from the dining area and houses a pool table and darts board as well as a projector that is used for showing live sports. There is a corridor to the rear of the pub that gives you access to the toilets.
Externally there is a large car park both in front of the pub and to the rear. There are a number of benches at the front of the pub and there is also a raised decking area with tables – all of which can be used during the summer months to create additional covers at the site and increase sales.

The Angel Inn is a successful community pub serving hot meals and drinks in a traditional pub setting in the Maesycwmmer village. There are steaks, curries and pub classics, while weekly themed nights offer grilled specialities, American inspired fare and homely roasts.
The Angel Inn regularly screens sporting events and hosts poker nights, quizzes, live entertainment and more. The beer garden allows room to expand and develop the offer during the more temperate months.
The bar is well stocked with a vast variety of spirits and larger. There is a huge opportunity to tap into the ever growing cask ale market and by re-launching a great value food offer utilising local provenance and supporting the community.
