We purchased the groupon deal for 3 courses for £40 for art bangor for valentines nite. Horrible food, inexperienced staff that looked so sad and unhappy to be there (no wonder with all the complaints and walk outs they were enduring), chef who from what...More

We'd bought a LivingSocial voucher for ART's 7 course tasting menu, as it looked nice and at the time the establishment had a reasonable Tripadvisor rating. After buying the voucher, the ratings on Tripadvisor started to get really bad and the majority of reviews were...More

After seeing that "Art" (Squiggles) has another Groupon for sale, I am compelled to write a review from 2nd November- mine and my husbands wedding anniversary. Only that we were bought the apparently £150 worth of groupon voucher as a gift is the only reason...More

My husband and I dined in Art last night on an internet offer for the 7 course taster menu and were pleasantly surprised by the whole experience considering all the bad press it has been getting on Trip Advisor. The staff are indeed very young,...More

I'm not sure how this restaurant (Squiggles) is staying open, other than the internet deals which reel you in. We had heard bad reports but my wife was curious. We arrived to an empty restaurant so wanted to look out of the window. We were...More
