Whilst at work my husband phoned and asked if I'd like to meet him at The Bank House for lunch. Obviously I wasn't going to turn down lunch out. I'm trying to loose weight and being careful of what I eat but was spoilt for choice from the lunch menu which changes on a regular basis depending on what's in... More

Last day in Lynn and another treat. Lovely converted building and an excellent menu.

We had scallops and crimes crab, followed by creme caramel. The dishes were nicely presented and a jug of water with lemon was provided. We had an enjoyable meal.

The Bank House was recommended to us by a local so we booked and visited it midweek. The staff were welcoming and friendly and the food was excellent and beautifully presented. Although we were well looked after by the staff and the quality of the food was great - we founfd the place lacking in atmospher.

They have a great fish to share dish and lunch is great. If the sun shines the decking outside is just what is needed

We enjoyed an afternoon chat and cup of tea, in an informal dining area. We then walked about enjoying the ambience of the old building.
