Together with my partner, we recently had a one night stay at The Bank House Hotel, Kings Lynn. This is a small-ish hotel which I would unreservedly recommend in all respects. It's situation in Kings Staithe Square, on the banks of the Great Ouse River is within easy walking distances of all the attractions of this historic town. Although all... More

When shopping it is good to have somewhere to stop and have lunch and know that you will enjoy it together with good service. Something on the menu for everyone. Will go back.

Wow I wasn't expecting the quality of food for the price. A shared seafood platter made up to our number of three. Excellent rollmop anchovies whitebait, and crayfish and a lovely leaf salad with toast and tartare. Mains equally elegant and a choice of large and small( after the starter I wish I'd down graded)! Real ale wine list etc.... More

I went to the Bank House for a Christmas meal and a lunch this month and although the food was very good it is just missing something that makes it superb. The staff are hard working and friendly but on one visit there were people chatting loudly with the barman at the bar and I felt I was in a... More

Enjoyed a lovely lunch today although it is a good job that I had booked a table. I chose homemade steak and kidney pudding with new potatoes and greens although further veg was extra as a side order. No room for a pudding sadly. Well kept Adnams beer was also very pleasant. Mains prices without extras not bad value at... More

This restaurant offers good service, a very comfortable atmosphere and an interesting choice of food. I had a venison stew with herb dumplings and it was wonderful. Food is reasonable priced for such good quality and it's a great place for a really good meal out.
