Angel on the Bridge
Situated directly on the river Thames, this traditional pub is housed in a historic building, parts of which date back to the 14th century. A small dock sits out front, along with a seasonal outdoor terrace that provides glimpses of the river between wooden floorboards. Embracing its age, the dining room has uneven hardwood floors, sections of exposed brick, a log fireplace, and a variety of mismatched light fixtures. The bar serves pints of local Brakspear beer, which pairs well with pub classics like fish-and-chips with mushy peas, and Cumberland sausages and mash with onion gravy.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
