The Esplanade Bars
The Esplanade Bars 12 Ballyholme Esplanade
BT10 5LZ
(028) 9127 0954 (T)

Situated at the far end of Ballyholme Bay, the Esplanade has a relaxing lounge bar to the front, edging onto a patio (no children after 8.00, but has a child changing facility) that overlooks the full stretch of the bay. A back bar through the off license at the side and The Gryphon Restaurant upstairs. Good food and friendly staff. Can get very busy but well worth seeking out. Cask ales have been piss poor of late - taste before buying!


Revivals Restaurant
Revivals Restaurant 41 Old Coach Road
(028) 9268 9624 (T)

Off the beaten track along a narrow country lane (at the top of the hill) but well worth finding. Excellent atmosphere, extremely friendly staff and food your taste buds would kill for. Not to be missed. Serving authentic North Indian Punjabi cuisine. Try the Asian beers.

Jenny Watts
Jenny Watts 41 High Street
BT20 5B3
(028) 9127 0401 (T)

One of Bangors oldest pubs (around 1780 and once "The Old House at Home") this is a great place to go for a Sunday brunch & jazz session - excellent home made burgers. Enjoyable pages from old PTQ magazines. Excellent food. Hot summer days can be enjoyed on the patio. (Children welcome). Parking at rear. Now serving cask ales.


The Dufferin Arms
The Dufferin Arms 33 High Street
BT30 9QF
(028) 4482 1182 (T)

Originally a large coaching house, it was split up and part of the establishment was owned by the Ulster Bank (the original window is still there). The current owners bought the premises from the bank and still retain the window and vault. The rooms are small and can be described as a "plethora". So many rooms and corridors, each with its own history. Special bottled beers available.

The downstairs restaurant (with its own minute dumb waiter) leads into the old stables area (now covered) via huge sliding doors. Excellent food and accommodation. Upstairs, little has changed in years and there is a friendly atmosphere. The main bar is coming down with old bottles and memorabilia.


A CAMRA Heritage Pub

The Cuan
The Cuan 6-12 The Square
BT30 7ND
(028) 4488 1222 (T)

Right beside the ferry landing, the Cuan offers great food in a relaxed family atmosphere. It has 4-star en-suite rooms (including an evening meal in case you want to prolong your visit). Special events held during the year.
