Well worth a visit for morning coffee or for a lunch. Popular with locals and very near centre. Interesting surroundings of old bank and good choice of food. Like the cakes and paninis.
Was recently here for some food and ordered bacon and lentil soup and was really sick for two days after this. I don't know if the soup was off or lying too long. It's sad as service was great and the place was lovely. I wouldn't risk going back.
Struggled to find somewhere to eat in Dumfries on a busy Saturday lunchtime, until we came across the Old Bank restaurant. We were able to choose a table, were quickly served by the waitress, and didn't have long to wait for our meals. My wife asked for the battered fish and chips with mushy peas but asked that the batter... More

We skipped the bland chain hotel breakfast to enjoy this wonderful independent café. Nice coffee and great bacon sandwich. Next time would be nice if they had Marmite for my six-year old daughter's toast, but she enjoyed her delicious home-made butterfly bun she had instead.
Thank you for your very positive comments about The Old Bank Restaurant. Sorry we didn't have any marmite but glad she enjoyed our homemade cup cakes. Hope you will visit us again if you are in Dumfries. JoAnn M More

We were in Dumfries for the day to visit friends and stopped here for lunch while we waited for them to finish work. What a little gem of a place. Lovely food. Vegetarian options and family friendly. They were lovely with our son even though he is good a creating lots of mess. Would definitely reccommend if in the area.... More

Vainly tried to find somewhere to eat in the town centre whilst visiting Dumfries and eventually stumbled upon this gem. Still has the original bank's revolving door. Nicely converted from a banking hall with quality furniture. I had a choice of soups, a freshly made sandwich and a tray bake as a 'deal' and my partner had freshly cooked fish,... More

On a trip to Dumfries recently my friend who lives locally recommended that we had lunch here and I am so glad that she did! The setting was fabulous and the food choice was excellent and the service was good too. It had a great bustling atmosphere which did not impose on our enjoyment. I would strongly recommend this venue... More
