Fabio and Jan opened the doors of The Banc in 2011 - reclaiming it's status on West Green Road (it used to be a former Barclays Bank), which inspired the restaurants name and renovating it with love and care to add some much needed pizazz to the area. A Burger & Steakhouse Restaurant with a touch of fine dinning and a labour of love for two young men, two local boys who went to the local school opposite the restaurant and decided to give something back to their community. Beautifully layout out over 2 floors, The Banc has an opened kitchen, contemporary decoration with hints of pearl white and red walls on one level and a black and white theme on the upper level which is superbly decadent and romantic. Fabio & Jan pride themselves on fabulous fresh cooked food, friendly, passionate and personal service. You will always see them either at the restaurant or outdoor lounge entertaining their guests. At The Banc the freshest produce, fish and matured meat are combined with the highest quality ingredients in order to create mouth watering dishes with unique presentation. With such fascinating dishes there is also a credible wine list and home-made desserts. We welcome your visit and hope to earn your repeated custom. Fabio & Jan

The Banc - a second home

I have repeatedly attended The Banc for the past 2 years, almost monthly that it has become a 2nd home to me and my close friends. What brings me back here over and over again?

It's my second time at this restaurant and I will definitely will be back. The steak is delicious and the brownie super delicious. The home made fries do no fall behind.

I visited The Banc last night on a work do. I phoned ahead with a request for a vegan meal and they were happy to oblige. The food was delicious for the vegans and meat eaters. I was especially happy with my vegan mayo made to compliment my burger and chips. It was good value for money. The bar bill... More

I was encouraged to try out this restuarant by the number of positive tripadvisor reviews so came here for as Mother's Day treat with my family and wasn't disappointed. We booked a table in advance but realised it wasn't neccessary when we arrived! My mum loved the flavoursome lamb chops which I have tried before and would definitely recommend. The... More
