Description: Formally a dentist surgery, Varsity Bangor opened its doors 10 years ago to introduce something new and exciting onto the local and student population of Bangor. Still going strong, Varsity has proved to be a hit with locals and students of all ages. With a regular daytime trade serving an awarding winning menu, Cask conditioned ales, pool and table football, live sports and heated beer garden, Varsity is the perfect place to meet, eat, and drink and socialise. By night, Varsity becomes the ultimate events venue. Everything from big screen sky sports on Bangor's biggest pub screen, great party atmosphere with live DJs at weekends and food served up until 9 every night.

“Great service & value for money! And yummy food : )”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

Reading through some other reviews has really shocked me !!

I've just had a yummy "create you own" burger !!

It was excellent value for money, even with extra cheese and bacon!!

I often come go in there simply for convenience and quick service!

All the staff are polite, make sure you're served very quickly and the food is always at the table as quick as possible !!

The pub is always clean and tidy and the newly refurbished toilets are immaculate !!

The offers on both food and drinks are excellent value, so I constantly recommend Varsity, Bangor to all my friends and family, as well as any one else I come across !!

Especially as there is on site parking at the rear with a large, clean & tidy beer garden available during the nice weather !!

“Always filling !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Good service, especially from the two managers. Always up for a joke at the bar when ordering.
The food here is good - big portions for a good price. The "dirty" menu is especially good when you're marvin !
The monster wrap is always a favourite of mine, and paying the £1 extra for curly fries makes a filling meal. They have a good selection of cider though I'm always left disappointed that the V card is only used for a monday.
Don't go near the tap vimto - tastes absolutely vile, I couldn't take more than a swig !

“Good service but question the food.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

So Varsity has been recommended as a great and cheap pub meal. Reasonably cheap it was, yet I would not recommend it to anyone. I ordered the chicken and bacon wrap with a side of french fries which were cold and hard (quite likely to have been microwaved). At the time the wrap was okay, yet I haven't stopped going sick since. My friend had the bbq chicken melt toastie, which said came with bacon yet this was questionable as she didn't see much bacon in her food. The pint glass was also quite dirty and the tap water that I was served was just about warm as they had no ice. Wouldn't hurry back.
