    Return visit as a treat to celebrate getting married, we'd previously visited for my 30th birthday where we'd had a private dining experience and love the ambience of this restaurant.

    The food was fantastic as we expected. I always order the chicken skewers for a starter as they never disappoint (the starter menu has a large fish presence which I don't eat). We treated ourselves to the Tomahawk steak to share, it was delicious and a good size for us where hubby likes a hearty portion! The side salad was more of a garnish to be fair, in hindsight I would probably order vegetables...

    Wine was also very tasty

    We were quite surprised it was relatively quiet. Despite this the staff seemed run off their feet when we first arrived, but the attentiveness markedly improved after we finally ordered. Also the quietness of the restaurant turned out to be a real plus as we were not rushed at all and whiled away a very pleasant and relaxing evening.

    Would definitely recommend Bank, and also the other Individual restaurants. I have a loyalty card and I do rate the scheme, the points I've accrued have enabled us to pay for almost all last night's dinner incl. the wine!

    Great food and lovely décor. The only issue would be that we often had to wait quite a while for our drinks. I had the chicken skewers for starter and crispy duck for main and both were brilliant. The salted caramel ice cream for dessert was delicious as well

    Excellent experience from the moment we arrived. The greeting at reception was very warm and the staff in the bar were very friendly and efficient. The restaurant staff were also very friendly and attentive. I think we benefited from dining on a quiet Monday evening! The steaks (flat iron & sirloin) were cooked exactly as we had asked but, sadly, the chips were a big disappointment. They were far too soft/under-cooked and needed to be much crispier. Also, the restaurant was rather cold. We were sitting in the glass atrium which had very nice views but the ambiance wasn't has comfortable as it might have been. Notwithstanding these two issues, we had a very enjoyable evening and would consider returning.

    Very good food in very pleasant surroundings. A little on the pricey side.

    My husband and I ate here at the weekend as a birthday treat. Great restaurant, we sat by the window overlooking a lovely garden lit up at night and the food is excellent. The portions are large so we had no room left for a desert and the service is very good too. I would definitely recommend eating here if you like a good steak.

    great variety on menu, superb food and excellent friendly service. The lobster and fillet steak were as good as we have eaten anywhere in the world
