Ask for Angela - support for those at risk in licensed venues

Many town centre pubs and bars in the Vale are signed up to 'Ask for Angela' a scheme designed to help those at risk of abuse in licensed premises.

If you feel uncomfortable in an 'Ask for Angela' venue you can go to the bar and ask: “Is Angela in?”.  Staff will then offer you discrete help, such as keeping an eye on you, calling a friend, relative, taxi, or the police - or simply help you to leave the building via alternative exit.

Participating venues can be recognised by a blue sticker in their window and posters displayed in bar and toilet areas. 

Beneath is a list of all the venues that are signed up to the scheme in the Vale of White Horse area. 


Abingdon Utd Football Club, Blue Boar, Boundary House, Brewery Tap, Crown and Thistle, Nags Head, The Black Swan, The Bowyer, The Broad Face, The Bystander, The College Oak, The Croft Bar, The Grapes, The Kings Head and Bell, The Midget, The Narrows, The Old Anchor Inn, The Oracle Snooker Club, The Punchbowl and The White Horse.
