We were in Bangor over Easter making a documentary film. We happened to call in here on a cold wet Good Friday night - any port in a storm?! And very glad that we did. The very friendly staff made us welcome near a warm fire in the bar. From a slightly limited Good Friday menu, the food was tasty,... More

Called in with family for a few drinks, the grey haired man who I assume was the manager is extremely rude and shouldn't be in this position as he has no customer service or manners at all. As I was ordering he decided to try and make little of me to his 'friends' at the bar. Wouldn't return in a... More

Hi Kelly, I'm sorry to hear that you were in recently and found one of our staff to be 'unfriendly'. That's not at all the attitude we want to portray and it's not what we strive for. Would you like to contact the bar via private message on Facebook with some further information and we can investigate? Kind regards, More

Stopped into this typical little pub on our way home from Bangor. Very dated interior but makes it quite quaint in an old traditional pub type of style. Not the cleaniest but guess that's all part of the experience! Ordered 2 adult and 1 children meal and kids meals come free, so that was great. Service was friendly and good... More

Great bar lunch. Chose four starters as we wanted nibbly food rather than a 'big meal' as we had dinner booked in the evening. Great portions and very tasty. Sports on tv and good atmosphere. Friendly staff. A tad pricey, (especially spirits) but maybe thats just the going rate in Bangor) but still worth a visit.

Had dinner in the restaurant and spent the evening at the 80's Nite on Saturday night. What a brilliant night was had. Food in the busy restaurant was delicious and plentiful, with service faultless. Pleasant staff, attentive and unintrusive. The rest of the night downstairs in the bar was fantastic - brilliant music, great price drinks offers, and dont miss... More

Hi Stephen, Apologies for the delay in responding. It's great to hear that you were in recently but I understand you were disappointed as the chips you ordered were served after the fish. We completely understand your frustration here and it's not what we strive for - we will be altering this going forward. Thanks for your feedback here. More

Head Chef Peter Harrison has created a menu that has something for everyone, and you certainly won't be disappointed! Chef Peter is well known for unrivalled steaks, burgers and seafood dishes, whilst still delivering home comforts such as lasagne and goujons, hearty soups and hand cut chips. Our produce is sourced locally from our free range eggs from Barr Eggs to our meat sourced from Mawhinneys Butchers of Bangor. We believe in strengthening our relationship with local suppliers to enhance our contribution to the economy, and we can guarantee that each of our delicious dishes will have been created from the freshest of ingredients.
