I was recently part of large group who had all pre-ordered our meals. The seating was cramped and once sat it was very hard to get out. Even though we had pre-ordered, we had to wait up to 1 3/4 hours for our food. The waiting staff just said it was because some of the party had ordered starters so... More

Haven't been to The Bank for ages so gave it a try again, and fantastic experience once again! Good service, well spaced out tables and dishes that are both varied, great on the eye and easy on the taste buds too. One of the few restaurants you are not rushed when eating and servers came over when needed as opposed... More

we chose this restaurant as it looked quite chic and would be ideal for lunch. We should have been on guard when the lady in front who had an assistance dog who was arranging a meal was told that the dog could not accompany her. She soon dealt with this by aquainting the waitress with the rules on such circumstances.... More

Me and my partner went here for his birthday meal. Both extremely happy with our choice of restaurant as the food was amazing (piri chicken combo and the vegetable and cream pancake!) we had a lovely meal, a few drinks and it was actually very reasonably priced despite what week were anticipating :) will defiantly be back. Thanks! X

From the outside 62 The Bank looks inviting, and might possibly be part of the hotel next door; I can't say because I didn't ask. Inside it's airy and spacious with well placed tables, and there was a warm welcome from the young waitress. It was a late lunch at around 2.00 pm, but there were still quite a few... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us, its very helpful to hear when we haven't got things quite right!, So we can make sure we don't have any omelettes resembling tortillas in the future.

We hadn't booked on a Friday night. We were welcomed and the service was second to none. Food also excellent with a menu to suit everyone. Not the cheapest but worth the money!

Took my 11 year old daughter and her friend. They wanted to sit on their own, with adults at a separate table. Their waitress was excellent, chatting to them and making them feel grown up. We all enjoyed our meals.
