Lloyds No.1 Bar (http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/56867/) is now The Angel (JDW).
WHAT ?UB (http://whatpub.com/pubs/HAN/222/angel-jdw-basingstoke) has it down as Angel (JDW) but the signage as seen on their pictures on their site clearly shows The Angel. Down to you.

I'm with you, it makes more sense to have the definite article. Done, thanks.

It's to fit in with the Good Beer Guide which never shows the definite article even in the form Ye. The descriptions, facilities and other information in the GBG are taken from the branch's entry on the What Pub back end database. Idiotic of course not to have "The" or "Ye" when it's part of the pub's name.
