Beer grub and music

Great Wee ace for a bit of grub and good beer, they have a great selection of whiskeys that you can indulge in and when there's a group playing its a very lively place too be and yet there's days when everyone is just chilling with the daily papers

My husband and I were in the restaurant for a celebration meal. We both had the steak specials which was lovely but the service that we had from a waitress called Kerrie was fantastic. She was very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. She even helped me with my disabled husband as he cannot walk far without help. Kerrie... More

We had dinner at the Rabbit Rooms after a long day exploring Belfast and Bangor, and were not disappointed! We had a couple of delicious cocktails, made by the friendly bartender, and spent some time relaxing before ordering food. We didn't feel pressured at any point to hurry up and order food, which was nice. We had potato skins, followed... More

We ate there on a Friday early evening, they had a great steak specials menu. Never really a big steak eater I went for the steak and claw option (10oz), the juiciest steak cooked to perfection with 4 meaty crab claws & to die for mash. Great service and lovely atmosphere. Will be back.

The best burgers & ribs in Bangor. Long overlooked for a while, but worth the visit. Excellent Food & Service at a good price (Especially on promotional nights!)

Had the best meal in a long time. I know the rabbit rooms pretty well, but was blown away by the meal upstairs. I had the b.e.l.t burger, home made,with egg and bacon on top. But the wife's 10oz ribeye with crab claws was honestly the juiciest steak I've ever had. (I ate half of hers). Champ was amazing too.... More
