Just into the high street we had a couple of pints and some really good food here, the steaks were to die for and the Champ Mash was very nice.

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...More

Refurbished in 2012, Wolsey's is seen by many as one of Bangors best bars. Comfortable and relaxed surroundings ensure all who dine with us do so with ease and content. 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.
