Very shocked to learn today that Angels & Gypsies, on Church St., has closed. The Church Street Hotel and Communion Bar are unaffected and will continue as normal. A statement on their website reads:
Having had 6 wonderful years of bringing our passion for creative, seasonal tapas to our intimate restaurant we have decided to focus our expertise in hosting special events. We will no longer be operating as a seven day a week restaurant , but will be working closely with our catering partners, Church Street Hotel, and Communion Bar in providing a warm intimate venue for private events, functions, wedding receptions and venue hire.
We would like to thank all our loyal customers for their support over the years, and look forward to hosting many more special events to come.
The food at Angels & Gypsies has been consistently excellent, and made the restaurant one of the first ‘destination’ restaurants in the area. If increased competition in the past few years meant that it wasn’t always full to capacity as in its heyday, Angels & Gypsies was rarely below half full on any given evening. The loss of the place leaves us with a tapas-shaped hole.
