Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Visited this pub while on a solo break away with my dog a couple of weeks ago and it was a fantastic atmosphere, great service, lovely food and I have to give the highest praise to the lady (who I think was a manager or...supervisor) (gutted I didn’t catch her name) but she was so friendly and welcoming, she made a fuss of my dog even giving her some doggie treats which went down (a treat) 😆would definitely recommend this place and will be sure to visit again next time I’m passing!!More

Hi Jess. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We absolutely adore all our doggo friends here at The Castle, so definitely make sure you pop in again when you're next in Bangor.

Great pub, with excellent range of beers and spirits, and a good food menu. Both drinks and food very reasonably priced. Wonderful staff team, and dogs welcome, ( free dog treats!) Can't recommend enough.

We reserved a table to watch the rugby World Cup as we always do. The staff can’t do enough for you in this pub and the food and drinks are great!! Not expensive and brilliant atmosphere. So many tv screens so they can show rugby...and football at the same time so everyone’s happy. Already booked a table for the next game 👍🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿More

Microwaved food, I couldn't eat it. Only thing that was any good were the waffle chips. Never again. Dry top on the mushy peas, bread must have been kn the plate when the were re heated as it was warm and was dry. Yuck.

Reviewed 3 September 2023 via mobile

Doesn't look anything special from the outside. Inside, it's a typical sports pub with lots of TVs. Pleasantly surprised by how great the food was. Even the side salad ( a dry afterthought in many pubs) was delicious. Coffee was piping hot and good quality....Staff were super friendly from the second we arrived until we left. Dog friendly- even have jars of dog biscuits on the bar and chopped cold sausage in a dog bowl available upon request.More

Luckily we found this pub in Bangor! Had lots of tvs for sport and the bar staff were happy to put the rugby on for my partner when he asked. The food was good, I had the spicy burger and would recommend. Prices were good...value for money. The rest of the pubs in Bangor are dire so thank god for this one on our 2 night trip!More

Very good in general. Staff are very friendly, food was of a very good standard and the VFM is fantastic!!! Definitely worth the money. Only thing that let it down was our table wasn’t cleaned properly and a sticky floor. Apart from that if in...the area again, would certainly come again.More

A group of us came to Bangor on a lads trip and we stumbled upon the Castle. The place is very friendly and has a pool table that kept the lads entertained. On Friday we had an unwelcome joiner to our group and after several...attempts at asking him to leave us alone the doorman was good enough to have a word with him. The doorman I found to be very helpful and positive to everyone coming in. The doorman was very friendly and chatty with all our group and can't praise him highly enough 👍🏻More

I come here a FAIR FEW times a week, and have BRILLIANT and FRIENDLY service all the time, and take advantage of certain offers such as Skint Wednesdays and Thursday Quiz night. However, when I visited on the Evening of Friday 2nd June, the doorman...asked me for ID, I was ASTONISHED!!. Only it was late and I only had time for a quick shot, I'd have just turned round and gone to spend my money somewhere else.... Whilst at the bar, I had a chat with the General Manager Sarah (Who I've always found to be very pleasant) who explained to me it was his first night and was only doing his job. I understand a lot of people would say I should feel very grateful for it, but as a person who has a few wrinkles developing and hair starting to grey and getting lost on top of my head, a bit of common sense should have prevailed!!More
