My Wife and I came here on our break away to High Bickington. We got a taxi into Barnstaple to the restaurant (because the cocktails are amazing, none of us wanted to drive!). Firstly the steak with chimichurri sauce was amazing, and my wife was stunned by the portion size of the ribs. The staff were more or less friendly,... More

This was a first visit to 62 The Bank and we enjoyed it very much. This restaurant has a lively atmosphere. The menu is extensive and we were able to have a very varied choice of dishes. A particular favourite was the fish pie and this was the best we had ever tasted. Lovely starters and desserts and excellent service... More

We booked this meal on our last night in Devon and we were happy with this. I had mac and cheese with peppers and sun blushed tomatoes and my partner the same but with chorizo, this came with a tasty salad and garlic bread. The venue was lovely, impressive high Tudor ceilings and a busy/happy atmosphere, the only criticism was... More

We had coffee in the main hotel - quality surroundings and most comfortable and then returned for lunch at 'The Bank'. Very tasty, well presented meals with ample portions. A good menu with plenty of choices and the puds are great.

Popped in here for a meal whilst passing through and as we are a group of 11 including four kids, we're not easy. However the staff were amazing, gave us our own room and served us speedily. The toll crashed and lost our order but the waiter made it a joke and we loved it. The food was amazing and... More

For many years I simply has Veggie Fajitas over and over again ... I really think that they could do a little better for veggies which would mean we could start going here again. But for me, the limited choice just got too boring. I think they only have one veggie main plate on their web site at the moment....... More
