Formerly McElhills restaurant, Donegans managed to get a full liquour license some years back and now trades as a pub. Good points - nice beer garden. That's it. Gents toilet is no bigger than broom closet, more than 2 guys in here and it is seriously crowded. Staff are probably the most surly and unwelcoming I have ever experienced - I have yet to see any of them smile or engage in a conversation with any customer.
If you are visiting Bangor and want a friendly welcome, a decent pint and a great atmosphere, do yourself a favour and walk the extra 4 metres to the ever excellent Jenny Watts.

Visited on Tuesday evening with the family and had a fabulous meal! Sharing platter of starters was great, particularly the ribs with meat falling off the bone and gorgeous BBQ sauce. The mains too were fabulous, Sirloin steak and steak in the mixed grill both picked as requested, Blue. It is very difficult to get a steak cooked properly Blue and these were the best we have ever had, perfect! The duck in sauce with noodles was lovely too. Pudding of Sticky toffee pudding also lovely, and all the portions were enormous! The service was excellent, friendly and efficient and the food was great, we'll be back.

It was 2100hrs on a Friday night and I asked the kind gentlemen was he still open. His reply was “Absolutely!”

My old man had the “scampi”, which was a massive portion and cooked beautifully. My good lady had a roast dinner, again huge and cooked beautifully. I endeavoured to try the mixed grill, and what can I say except to say “absolutely sublime!”

The modus operandi in addressing this fine establishment, is to either starve yourself all day to accommodate the quantity or if you are rotundly challenged – well does it matter!
