Visited here with adult children after a long beach walk, food good, portions ample, worth the price. Cosy feel and nice furnishings. Staff accommodating and attentive. Excellent beer garden with heaters. Perfect place for live music in warmer months. Will be back

The bar was packed out and we still got an excellent meal with good service. We went back again in the evening for a few drinks and it was still heaving and the bar staff were still very effecient

Food was very nice, there was a wide range of choices. I loved the burger I had and they gave me extra tomato ketchup.

Had a lovely lunch with group of friends yesterday. Good old pub grub with a very attentive and friendly bunch of staff. Plenty of atmosphere on a busy Saturday afternoon.

Its just an average pub no more or less it does nothing to attract visitors and is tbh boring !!...the food is just the standard fried rubush that most pubs in Bangor serve.....the pubs in Bangor are not great anyway and this pub does nothing to rise above poor competition of the others
