The Salty Dog Hotel & Bistro
A beautiful Victorian building was lovingly restored to create this gorgeous boutique hotel and bistro overlooking Bangor’s picturesque Marina.
The menu is packed full of mouth watering dishes celebrating the best of local. You won’t get just any old fish and chips – theirs is salt-water cured haddock cooked in a local ale batter with breadcrumbs.
From Walter Ewing’s fish to their own home grown Kitchen Garden herbs, the artisan goats’ cheese from Leggygowan and a range of dishes made using Bangor’s own Keen nut butters, provenance is king. So committed to supporting local, they’re now selling products such as Broighter Gold oil and Abernethy butter to customers from the hotel reception.
Also worth a mention are the vegetarian dishes. There are four brilliant choices including arancini and blue cheese soufflé. Simple, London-esque dessert names (Pear / Chocolate / Lemon) give dishes real standout. Top marks all round.
PS Make sure you try their extensive gin, cocktail and local beers & ales lists.
