We visited The Bank for a dinner. The first thing you notice once entering is the great vertical expanse, beautifully restored. Second thing you notice is the noise (I am not sure whether it is vaulted ceiling or number of visitors, or piano playing through speakers, but you really have to speak up to be heard, so this place is not right to have quiet conversation).
We came before our reservation time so found some chairs at the bar and had a drink. By the time drink was finished, the waiter came around and fetched us upstairs for a dinner.
I wanted to order seafood platter to share but the waiter advised that this dish is no longer available as they run out of the ingredients. So I settled on fried goat cheese with beetroot and greens starter and the ribeye steak with salads, chips and onion ring. We also ordered a bottle of wine from quite extensive wine list with wines starting at EUR 20 per bottle.
Food was excellent for what it was, the only thing I didn't eat was battered onion ring - it was huge and had a lot of grease.
Check came out at EUR 120 for 3 persons.
I'd still put this place into "gastropub" category, but within this category it surely stands out. recommended.
