Redoing AngelInnPetworth.co.uk to something more welcoming. Unfortunately had to choose the logo type as it's their branding.

The black bar will be a white bar on every other page but the homepage.
All critique welcome.

Yeah Zach, I feel your pain on the logo. I think you could potentially help alleviate the effect by reducing the size. It's too prominent. A rough idea of one solution: http://d.pr/i/VSzE
There is a really nice hierarchy and balance to the page. I'd leave the logo as you have it. Nice job.
@Vin Thomas Definitely a potential. I'll have a think – not sure I want to hide it too much as its importance but there may be middle ground.
@Mark Wallis Cheers.
Only thing that stands out to me is a need for a little mroe spacing - http://cl.ly/image/1R0l3x2B2n3b maybe
@Stuart Robson Actually, that's a very good point. I was going to mention I'm considering widening the gutters but apparently forgot :) Glad to get a second nod on it though.
Wha! That's a great font ;)
I'm umming and aahing over the menu being way more prominent than the tag line and review. I'd be more inclined to reduce the menu and increase the reviews.
I'm not a fan of the tag line. It feels very generic and could be applied to any hotel/inn. If there's nothing more specific to The Angel Inn I'd drop it and rely on the reviews.
The layout is good and fresh though, and the photo has a great feeling of warmth.
I don't mind the logo.
It looks like it's intended to be used on paper (it would work small on menus or letterpressed), so I'd knock the contrast back a bit on it, maybe introduce some texture and, dare I say it, i'd make it a teeny bit bigger so it's less 'islandy'.
Dig the layout. Useful. It's the right content.
The map style seems a bit out of place, but might be unstylable.
@Steve O'Connor: Interesting. Agreed - I'll remove the tag line.
The problem with that is they really need help pushing some of the things in the menu like the bedrooms.
@Tim Harobour: That makes one of us :D
I think you're right. I'll play with some textures later.
Anything you feel the map could do to make you feel it belongs more?
You could always push the rooms using a clipped review + bedroom image rather than the dining room image. With a big link to "Book your room now". Do one of each for an A/B test?
@Zach Inglis :) logos you have to live with. Maybe it's just ok compared to how it could have been.
map: Colours could fit better, the marker should stand out more, there's a lot of extra busy-ness - building shapes etc. that complicate things visually and don't add usefulness.
