“These people obviously don't want to make money!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

This is a busy and surprisingly popular pub, I tend to avoid this pub mainly because of the lack of professionalism shown by staff and even, on the occasion the owner. The food served here is average and the menu is general having said that, portion sizes are acceptable for the price. In terms of entertainment, the owner and the staff attempt to succeed in this area but fail. The pub quiz on a Sunday is particularly weak and directed mainly to locals it seems. Some questions were written based on the staff and if customers are not locals this is not a good experience as it was generally confusing at times.The overall atmosphere of the pub is unwelcoming, therefore i'd avoid this place like the plague.

“Smelly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

The good is a good price. A very student friendly bar. Most of the bar staff are a delight, however one of which seems to have a massive ego issue. A customer should not be able to see if the bar staff are cocky wankers or not. Bar staff should always be lovely, and not make moves on your girlfriend.

“Dirty, impersonal and tasteless”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

The beer is badly kept, the food is badly cooked. The pub is dirty and more often then not there is some form of leak in the toilets which smell horrific. Everything seems to be done on the cheep, the menu says home cooked pizza... its base was a tortilla wrap and tasted of nothing they also forgot one of my toppings and when I complained I did not receive an apology and had to request that it was remedied as that was not offered. Most of the staff are poorly trained and the manager is rude, crass and far to self obsessed. Would not come back if you paid me.

We're sorry to hear that you feel so strongly about our pub that you took the time to write such a negative and scathing review, but we thank you for your feedback anyway.

“One of the best pubs in Bangor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

During my extensive tour of the pubs in Bangor during my undergraduate years the Belle Vue easily has the best atmosphere and great themed nights which are getting really popular. Only eaten there a few times but have never been disappointed.

“Good pub!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Well priced and pretty tasty food. The staff are always welcoming and they support students, a rarity in Bangor.
