The Antelope Inn, Bangor

The Antelope Inn is located in Bangor and right next to the stunning suspension bridge, Menai Bridge. The views of the Menai Straits is just breathtaking. The Antelope Inn has undergone a refurbishment and we were kindly given some free meals to review the pub restaurant. The Antelope Inn is a pub that I have been going to every now and then, for years ever since I was a child myself.

Firstly, The Antelope has now opened as a Sizzling Pub & Grill and they have a brand new menu. The main menu has a great range of foods from your classic pub food to your burgers, curries and much more. There’s a great choice of food to choose from. There’s also a separate menu for Vegetarians and Vegans which I thought was great as not many pub restaurants cater much for Vegetarians or Vegans.

Another menu was the kid's menu, which catered for under and over 5s. There’s fantastic offer on the kid's menu where you can order a main meal, dessert and a drink for just £3.99 for under 5s and £4.99 for over 5s, all day and every day. Another offer that happens from Monday to Friday between 3pm and 7pm are kids eat for just £1 with every adult meal that’s ordered.

There are many other offers available in The Antelope such as:

Soft Drink and Burger – Get yourself a free soft drink with every burger that you order.

2 for £10 – There’s a various selection of meals you can choose from in the 2 meals for just £10, all day, every day.

Golden Years – If you’re over 60 years old, you can enjoy a two-course meal for just £4.99 between 12pm and 5pm, Monday – Friday.

Drink and Lunch – Pop in and grab a free soft drink with every lunch meal ordered.

The service in The Antelope Inn was fantastic. I can not say anything negative about the customer service and they were all super friendly. We were greeted with a warm welcome and we were also checked on a couple of times while we were sat on our table. A waiter also came up to us to ask if we had been before and to let us know that we order at the bar. Which I personally think is great, seeing as not many new visitors will know this.

When we ordered our food, we were surprised that we didn’t have to wait that long. We ordered two main meals, two kids meals and three sides. The food was presented really nicely and it all looked delicious. My partner went for the Pepper Jack Stack which as you can see in the photo, is two beef burgers topped with melted Pepper Jack cheese, bacon and onion rings. This meal also came with a side of chips too. It cost £10.29 and for the size and the taste, we both thought it was reasonably priced.

I ordered the classic Chicken Tikka Masala which came with two popadoms and a bowl of rice. I also added a naan bread, 2 onion bhajis and mango chutney for an extra £1.50. The Chicken Tikka Masala itself was £7.79. The meal was delicious, the only negative about this meal was the side naan bread which I couldn’t eat because it was overcooked. But otherwise, the curry was delicious.

The kid's meals were: chicken nuggets, chips and garden peas for Freddie and Elliw chose Toad in the hole with side chips. They were able to choose which sides and extras they wanted with their main part of the meal, which is great because most kids can be quite fussy with foods. The portions were perfect sizes for their ages.

The waiter cleared up the table not long after we finished and we went to order some dessert. I wasn’t going to order anything until I saw their Caramel and Vanilla cheesecake on the menu. My partner went for a cup of coffee, and the kids went for a Make Your Own Sundae from the kid's menu.
Again, the deserts were pretty quick and we didn’t have to wait long. The cheesecake was absolutely delicious, it was also topped with my favourite biscuit: Lotus Biscoff. Both kids really enjoyed their desserts and loved making their own sundae with all the treats that came with it.

Overall, I am overly pleased with the service and the food that we had at The Antelope Inn. I would most definitely recommend this pub to anyone who is looking for somewhere to eat in Bangor. On a nice day, you could also eat outside and there are two outdoor areas; one area is attached to the pub and the other area is in a grass area. Both areas have amazing views of the Menai Straits and it’s the ideal place to go on a summers day.

The Antelope Inn is also a great place to host parties or events. They have big enough tables to cater for large groups of people and it’s definitely a place that won’t disappoint. Why not take a walk along Treborth Coastal Path after your meal? Again, the views are pretty breathtaking!
