5 of us booked at the last minute to have dinner here. Got a table no problem, even though the place was very busy. The usual menu was available (without the obligatory mark up because it was a holiday) and we chose the roast dinner at £6.99. Good portions, tasty food and a fabulous dessert for only an additional £2!... More

Just had an Easter Sunday feast at the bank. Definitely the best place to visit in the southside! Our top choices were the cauliflower pie, haddock and chips and cheese burgers! All delicious and that was before the desserts! The desserts were to die for! Waffles...an easter treat..toffee apple crumble and sticky toffee pudding...every dish a taste sensation! Well done...

A large group of walkers went here for lunch. The visit was prearranged and we were given a reserved space upstairs. The staff were delightful and there was real ale available which pleased my husband. We had very good fish and chips and others were satisfied with their choices. It is lovely to see such a nice building restored so... More

Great pub for a few pints with friends any night of the week. Great staff (Helena, Victoria, Gregor, Alan, Adam, Gemma) all ably led by Manageress Cheryl. Only let down by mostly redundant one arm bandits which have recently appeared.

I don't go to the Bank often and my visit on Sat night reminded me why. The bar itself wasn't busy yet we were ignored by very unfriendly bar staff for 5 mins. After taking our order the lassie came back to advise that they'd run out of Smirnoff and wanted to charge extra for grey goose which was fine,... More

Thank you for your review. I am very shocked to hear you found my bar staff unfriendly. We have a high reputation of friendly staff here in The Bank, this is one of the main reasons customers come back as well as the value for money and offers we have. At times when busy we do run out of specific... More

My husband, daughter and myself decided to visit The Bank for lunch. We have been several times before and liked it. On arrival we went upstairs to the restaurant and the waitress told us to sit anywhere. When we picked a table there was a sign saying that you had to order your food and drink at the bar (this...

My family and I would like to thank the staff once again for making our night extra special. They were professional, friendly and attentive at all times without being intrusive. Their new menu is also worth a mention as it's competitively priced and we haven't been disappointed yet with our food choices. We are regulars and would highly recommend others... More

I have passed this place many times but today was my first visit. I was impressed with the interior which is larger than I imagined and well laid-out. There are a couple of large screen TV's and plenty of tables (it was actually quite quiet for a lunch time). The menu is quite limited but contains all the Pub Grub... More
