Here are a couple of photographs of The Angel Hotel, which was situated at no 96 Brook Street, in the triangle of Egerton Street and Francis Street. (Phillipson & Golder give its address as no 1 Egerton Street.) The site is now occupied by the Chester Lodge Residential Home (illustrated right).
In the top picture, the property adjoining the pub has just been demolished- presumably for the widening of Francis Street, where redevelopment was taking place- and the bottom one shows it after this date, with a stout buttress supporting it.
The still-thriving Egerton Arms can just be see on the far right of the top and the modern pictures).
It is remarkable that five pubs once faced each other at this junction- the Angel Hotel, the Glynne Arms (which may be seen, transformed into an antique shop, on the left of the bottom photograph), the George Hotel, the Railway and the Egerton Arms. Only the latter two survive here today.
The Angel's landlord in 1880 was Thomas Millington, in 1898 George Gregg, in 1902 Leonard Pearson- who was still there in 1914- in 1934-5 Mrs Owen, in 1942 Horace Owen.
The pub is remembered by some oldies for 'the clock in the window'- just visible in the top photograph.
