I have been to the Bank House several times as it offers good value, a relaxed environment and good food. The mix of Designers' Guild furniture and light and airy rooms makes it one of the best looking restaurants in Lynn.

We arrived here to meet clients on their recommendation as a good setting for this type of meeting. We wanted to make it informal and chat about things whilst having lunch. We arrived and found nowhere to park and decided to take a flyer by driving past the restaurant. We caught sight of a small blue P and happily this... More

Me and my boyfriend popped in here on a Wednesday evening after a trip to the coast, we arrived at about 18:00 and we hadn't booked. Dinner didn't start until 18:30 so we sat and had a drink first. When we were seated we were the only ones in the restaurant but it soon filled up so I would recommend... More

Stopped off here for a Sunday evening meal during our Easter breakaway & have to say the food was very good, just a great shame the table service on the night was so so poor. Much in line with with other recent reviews!

The bank House over look the Customs House and river very nice on a sunny day. Sunday lunch all the food was cooked to our liking , the portions for starter and main course were generous but the sweet was very small. The price was acceptable and overall we enjoyed every thing , will return in the summer .

We attended a meal for a friends birthday, service was slow and nobody served the table with drinks, we had to go to the bar for drinks. Meal was overcooked and presentation on plate was dreadful. People within our party has to send meals back to be re-cooked. Over priced. Will not be visiting again in a hurry. Very disappointed.

Visited the restaurant in the charming Bank House Hotel, and what a buzz we found. Obviously extremely popular and well thought of, good food and excellent Staff. This area of Kings Lynn is just delightful and warrants another visit to discover even more of the town's attractions.

Five of us went for afternoon tea on a Sunday afternoon and although it was good, it wasn't great! They bought out 9 small sandwiches, which meant that one of us would've only had one. We'd asked for a mix of brown and white bread, only white came out. Call me picky, but the cheese was just sliced and not... More

Massive thanks for a perfect wedding breakfast last Valentine's Day. The Boardroom was just right for our party of 21, the food was excellent and the service couldn't have been better. It made our daughter's very special day even more special.
