The Whistlestop is a bijou cafe half way down Bangor pier. Its signature dishes are sea food chowder, Menai straits mussels in garlic and white wine with sourdough bread, welsh rarebit, burgers, pankakes and Bara brith. It seats 8 inside and 20 outside wi
So,,, we are staying in Rhosneigr (Anglesey) in a beautiful house with superb sea views. Today (Tuesday) we didn't fancy another day on the beach (strange you can say that with a British summer but the weather has been very good!), so we decided to visit Bangor on the mainland. We had seen lots of good things about Whistlestop - their flyers, their promo cards and reviews in the holiday information left at the holiday house. The place is about 40 minutes travelling from the west coast of Anglesey to Bangor, but hey ! who cares? we're going to chow down on local welsh produce, try 'scuffins' and all the reviews are great! What can possibly go wrong?Well, they were closed! Nothing in any of the advertising about being closed on Tuesdays, in the height of the holiday season! Now I'm sure the food is great but an eighty minute round trip to walk along a dingy pier thinking how nice it might have been is not the best day out!Whistlestop owners - PLEASE sort out your opening times in your advertising!!!!!!!!It's a sod's law story I'm afraid you happened to decide to visit the very day we decided to change our opening hours we made the change on trip advisor and Facebook at 11 am last Tuesday Please accept our apologies for your inconvenience we always advise customers to give us a call anyway the number is on our trip advisor and face book site and it's my number so please give me a call and I'll make sure you're ok next time

I have visited here on numerous occasions, today was disappointing. There were 5 staff behind the counter one preparing coffee and milkshakes; the noise from both machines was uncomfortable and made the experience far from relaxing. Numerous staff serving with no consistency. It seemed a little chaotic. The prep area needs to be sealed off, this would mean less noise and that you can't see the staff milling around or checking their mobile phone! This cafe's success is now its potential failure, it needs to expand and I believe then it would be a fantastic place to visit.

We spent three days in this village. We had the opportunity to try several meals in this pub. This was terrible. The burgers were made with very poor quality ingredients. It was clear for instance that the bread was the cheapest bread from a supermarket and not a brioche bread as you can expect. Chips were tasting very old oil. It is also hard to mess up garlic bread but this pub managed to sell garlic bread which is just sliced bread put in a microwave and which doesn't even taste garlic. We took the picture attached for this occasion. In conclusion, my recommendation is to go there for a beer but to avoid food for which you can find nice places in Llanberis. Staff is also very nice. Enjoy a nice real ale, but avoid food! Thank you for your comments. I'm sorry to hear you had a bad experience here. We value customer feedback and if we can change things for the better we will. Saying that we have now changed our Garlic bread to baguette slices freshly baked in the oven. Our Beef Burgers are from the award winning Butchers in Caernarfon Owen Glyn Owen so I don't really know what to say about your comment about our burgers apart from ' I will look into what they've been putting into the ingredients'. Our chip fryer oil does get replaced on a regular basis but I understand that in this instance the oil did need changing which it was done the following day, my apologies. I hope that if you visit this area again you will give our food another try. Many thanks again for your comments. Kind regards.
