My partner and I took his father for a birthday meal over the weekend. Starter of Posh fish fingers had a large bone in, so not a good start. Sticky cranberry chicken was a joke, all it was, was a chicken breast with cranberries on so nothing sticky about it and the jus was watery so my chips just sat... More

Wow the staff must really hate working here! Such a miserable looking bunch! Quality of drinks and snacks were fine, no issues there, but don't expect great or proactive customer service! After saying things like "excuse me" and "hello" at least 8 times to staff members passing right by our table (male and female), including at least one manager, and... More

We went to 62 The Bank for a family meal this week. The food and service were outstanding. My favourite is the venison and partridge hotpot. I can honestly say it is the best meal I've ever tasted. My wife and two girls enjoyed theirs and the Orio cookie milkshake went down a treat. We were lucky enough to have... More

Have eaten here at least 3 times in last 12 months as groups of friends have chosen it for different events ie, hen party etc. Have to say, I'm not a huge fan. Building itself is gorgeous, you can feel the history. The layout of the resturant is very bad and you're always on top of each other and in... More

My partner and I went into 62 The Bank for a spot of lunch on a spur of the moment. We were greeted by friendly staff and were sat immediately, it wasn't overly busy, which was neither here nor there for us. Our waiter was courteous and gave me a few extra moments to order as I just couldn't decide.... More
