Angel Inn

Southampton SO14 1LL

Please leave your details and our team will be in touch. * fields are required


The Angel enjoys a prominent position on Palmerston Road which is just on the outskirts of Southampton City Centre. There are large parks opposite and Southampton Solent University is 400 meters away (Main Campus). The pub benefits from a very high footfall with several halls of residence nearby and the proximity of the High Street. The Angel is also one of the main home supporter’s pubs for Southampton FC. On a home match Palmerston Road serves as a thoroughfare walking to and from the main train station and the stadium. The pub backs onto a residential estate so a good level of weekday trade comes from the locals. This is now one of the only pubs left on the estate

Pub Layout

The outlet trades from a large open plan room with a sports area to the rear which is served from a central L shaped bar servery offering all round vision and ease of service to all areas of the pub. All seating is loose so that it can be moved around for home matches and functions giving you flexible use of the floor space. There is a commercial kitchen behind the bar server that is fully operational and also a room to the side of the bar with a hatch that has been used in the past on match days as an additional bottle bar and a food service point to alleviate pressure on the main bar. The pub has a courtyard covered garden to the rear but also benefits from a street license to the side of the pub that can be used all year round for table and chairs or standing room on a home match to increase capacity. There is no car park for the pub but there is plenty of street parking all around the pub.

The Angel underwent a large investment in July 2017 and is presented both internally and externally very well. The pub has a commercial kitchen but is not being utilised currently, so sales are 100% drinks led. The pub benefits from several large screens to watch live sports and has weekly activities ranging from bingo, karaoke, live entertainment, pool knockouts and themed evenings. To increase sales further there are many options including working with Solent University who closed the main campus Students Union 2017 /2018 academic year. The introduction of food, coffee and WIFI will be a massive attraction during the day between lectures and will be a benefit to students and lecturers. It will also capture shoppers and workers from the High Street and some of the footfall visiting the parks. Early evening drinks offers will also capture those on the way home or introduction of a season ticket scheme to encourage customers to come to the pub outside of a SFC home match. The pub has the opportunity to start up weekday pool and darts teams that will encourage new customers from the surrounding area to come and see the improved pub and offering that has been developed. .The condition, layout and facilities of this pub will enable it with the right direction to be one of the best sites in Southampton to watch televised sport. The pub has a courtyard covered garden to the rear but also benefits from a street license to the side of the pub that can be used all year round for table and chairs or standing room on a home match to increase capacity. This is renewed annually.
