Came here for a meal through Groupon. Never been before, but were very pleasantly surprised. Firstly a big mention to the lovely friendly staff, we felt the treatment we received was very welcoming. The decor in the bar and restaurant, was very much in keeping with the building and clean and tidy, which made you feel instantly comfortable. We both had rump steak, which the waitor told us where it came from, locally and I have to say was one of the best steaks, ive had in a long while..tender and cooked, just how we requested. For anyone who is not familiar with Uttoxeter, Bank House, is well situated, in the town, opposite a beautiful church, which can be seen through the dining room windows, they have a car park, but also direct access off the main town car park, so no need to worry about not getting close with your car. We will certainly return.

My Husband booked us into this hotel for two nights as we travelled up from Essex for a special family birthday event. After a gruelling 5 hour journey (problems on M1 closed all lanes for a time) we arrived at the hotel much later than planned tired and hungry. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We ordered steak and chips which was home made and freshly cooked by Rowland. Very tasty! We retired to bed up the gorgeous original winding staircase to the second floor and collapsed into bed feeling content and ready to sleep. Then the nightmare began....The church bells!!! Our room was directly opposite the spire! Felt like we were living in the belfry!! The bells ring every quarter of an hour (very loudly) and toll the hour when 12 is struck. OMG! We were both going mad with the din. Trying to doze off but just when you were going to sleep, Ding Dong ding dong.....then 15 mins...repeat....Etc then CLANG! 1 oclock! Repeat all 2oclock....All through the night!! We have no complaints about the Bank House. Yes the decor is tired and it needs modernisation in relation to bathrooms etc, we can accept that BUT To pay money for a sleepless night, was very disappointing! No compensation was offered at all. The receptionist on Saturday morning was fully aware that there is a noise problem. She said that the bells can be heard all over town! She did try to find another room for us (but they were fully booked as there was a festival on locally) the room offered was not acceptable at all. So we ended up having to Google for a room for Saturday night. Luckily we found one in Burton Upon Trent. Having to check out at 10.30 a day earlier than arranged (we had not planned for that) caused havoc with our day. We had a surprise 60th birthday luncheon booked in Marchington just 3 miles away and no where to rest or get changed for the occasion. We sat in the cafe in Tesco and then found a country lane lay by and slept. Went back to Tesco to change outfit in the toilet room! Whoever is responsible for the timing of the church. bells at St Mary the Virgin Church, needs to be more considerate of the Bank House Hotel as it must affect more of their clientele. Surely as the belks would be automated over night, they could be turned off at 11pm or midnight? And turn them on again at 8am? Would be better for everyone! Rant over

Perfect location for the races, we arrived around mid day and our room was ready. Large suite consisting of four poster bed and large bathroom. Went down to bar where the chef came out and explained what was on offer for lunch. Reasonably priced. Did not have breakfast as being vegetarian the lady on the reception said they did full English breakfast and would just take the meat off, so no veggie sausage then? Not a problem wetherspoons is a short walk away. Would definitely stay again.
