    The best family meal out we've had in ages, amazing food and great service. So much flavour in everything we ate, the tastiest fillet steak cooked to perfection and the chips on the side were by no means an after thought, they had loads of flavour too. All of our meals were so tasty, we all left very happy with very full tummies!

    Fantastic smooth service , we sat in the garden which adheres to social distancing. The cocktails were great value and very tasty. Food was extremely tasty and reasonably priced. The staff made us feel very welcome couldn’t have asked for better service .

    When we arrived we asked for a beer but, after a 5 minute wait, we were told that wasn't available. After choosing an alternative we tried to order a bottle of wine only to be told, after another wait, that wasn't available. Finally the server came back to advise us what they did have so we could make a decision. We ended up having the last bottle of Gavi so, they will have then run out of another type of wine too. Surely, before each service, the team should have a meeting and get told what is and isn't available that day. The waiting was a bit annoying as even getting a bottle of water took ages. The food was very good though and the service was friendly. I can definitely recommend the Espresso Martini!

    It was ok. The food was great. But the service is quite often slow and chaotic, as it was again on this visit. Also, there was no beer on draught.

    Our 1st restaurant since lockdown and i was nervous. But we were made to feel comfortable and talked though the procedures and i felt comfortable and would definitely return to The Bank. I had Calamari and the Zingara Pizza both very tasty and would order them again. Staff attentive, screens at tables and wipes to clean your cutlery for each course. We did wait a while to order our drinks after the waiter said us down and it wasnt that busy, this would be my only negative. After that the food came without a delay.
