Hi Gordon, Thanks for your patience. We have only just gotten back control of our Tripadvisor account. I apologise for the wait you had here, this is not policy and would like to look into it more. I realise this occurred a few weeks ago....More

Description
Refurbished in 2012, Wolsey's is seen by many as one of Bangor's 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 Ross is well known for unrivaled 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 Mawhinney's 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.
