Visited the bank house with my mum the other day for afternoon tea. It was delicious, great value for money and you got loads, we sat outside which was great! Only negative was that when I visited in the morning to book no one was at the front. Also wish you sold vouchers for the rose and crown!

Food very good, well served in pleasant surroundings. Georgian building which was once a private house and then a bank before it became a restaurant. Lots of original features.

Asking for a hamburger isn't usually much of a test of culinary excellence. But, on the other hand, a hamburger often disappoints. Not this time. Cooked exactly as requested - rare(ish), without any fuss, and from very high-quality beef, it would be hard to think how it could have been bettered. Top marks.

We stumbled on this place by accident and started by being confused. Saturday about 4.30 the bar area was busy (one or two on the loud side) "are you open for food?" ... "hang on I'll find out".... 2 minutes later "yeah" so... "can we have a table for two?" "Oh not sure...hold on" ..... while wondering what other purpose... More

Stopped in Kings Lynn on way to Cromer. We had looked at places to eat before as I am gluten/wheat free. Found another restaurant, but no where to park, so we continued along the Quay, and came across this little gem. Service and food was lovely. Clean but simple. Delicious fresh crab. Very friendly waitress who was very knowledgeable about... More

Went with a small group. I think they forgot about us - as some 35 minutes after arriving we had to ask for our orders to be taken. When the food did arrive it was excellent and-, for a city centre restaurant, well priced.

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. It's conveniently located on the Quay too where you can often park for free in the evenings. On my... More
