Food is great. The main issue is that during 2 parties, we were forgotten about (we weren't part of either party).

I will start by saying the food was really good, the fact I had somebody else's meal and not what i ordered reflects the level of service. The senior waiter was really good, apologised and offered us a discount - hence why i ate the meal i didn't order, (which was the pork belly and great) but when he left... More

Fabulous restaurant in historical building. Excellent menu and good choice of wines.. Real ale on tap... Excellent service and food of a very high standard. I have been several times and have never been disappointed. Highly recommend a visit.

Afternoon tea here is delightful. Home made cakes and sandwiches on a tea stand is just lovely. It has a modern boutique feel to it, without the over pricing. I loved the blends of tea offered and the service as always is excellent. An elegant, quiet place where professionals also go for lunch, as I have on many occasions. I... More

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

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.

My wife & I ate at The Bank House on two occasions during our visit to Kings Lynn. On both occasions the staff were welcoming, the service was good and the food was beautifully served. As my wife is coeliac the chef had taken the trouble to hand write notes on a menu to explain what my wife could eat... More

We found this restaurant on a Sunday lunch time after a walk along the river. There were only three other diners in the restaurant at the time so getting a table was no trouble at all. Whilst the interior was nicely decorated unfortunately there weren't any tables with nice views over the river or the square next door. This was... More

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.
