We were happy to return to the Boatyard Inn with the promise of complementary main meals to make up for our disappointment earlier in the year. The staff welcomed us back and charmingly took our orders with no quibbling or bitterness for the dissatisfaction which we had expressed last time. The dinner we received was good (I had asked for vegetables instead of chips which didn't quite happen) and the taste of everything was very good. As ever, the price honest and reflective of the quality.
Since my last review improvement to the accommodation at the Boatyard is underway. As yet, only the bathroom has started its facelift but I'm happy to report that the carpet has gone! The toilet roll holder still hangs inelegantly from the wall but I was assured that this was in hand. It struck me that perhaps the owners are reluctant to spend the money on the rooms which I think is a great pity as this could be the top venue in Bangor to offer pub, restaurant and accommodation to match. As previously reviewed, the pub has a terrific atmosphere and quirky boatyard charm with excellent views. On this occasion we were treated to a visiting French choir who sang acapella in the pub while we ate in restaurant - terrific!
We hope to visit again soon and look forward to being shown improved accommodation - we'd wholeheartedly be able to recommend all three aspects of this establishment if that were the case.
