We have visited the 62 The Bank a few times in the past and it meets its promise of mid range dining. The music was perhaps a little loud but the restaurant is welcoming and buzzed with diners on a Friday night. The Nachos are good and generous as a shared starter and the Thai Fishcakes a light - and... More

What a find. Happened to pop in for lunch and wow ! Food took a while to come but that was obviously because it was so freshly cooked. Service was efficient and pleasant. A little pricey but the food does deserve the price tag. Don't walk passed this one.

A great fun restaurant for all ages. Food is like TGI's but better and larger portions, my starter was as big as most main courses. Staff very friendly and very quick service. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant for families or couple.

Very clean restaurant which was the positive. We also had great starters, I had mussels and my boyfriend had ribs. However my main, steak fajitas, we're bland and flavourless. I hardly ate any. The waiter commented and I said they weren't very nice so I just picked the steak out. He said he was surprised and would speak to the... More

We came here for lunch and felt the menu was exceptional. There was so much choice! We made our selection and were amazed at the generous portion sizes. The food was outstanding and we will definitely return when we go to Barnstaple again.

Have just eaten at to say the least the most amazing restaurant, haven't ever had food and service at such a high standard than we've had this evening! Hats off to them, living near London we've experienced some beautiful places to eat but this has beaten them all! Best asparagus I have ever tasted!

Came here for a birthday treat with 6 people. It wasn't busy and the staff were friendly and attentive. Ordered from the lunch specials menu/ had the bacon burger which was lovely. Thought the drink was included in price but was not, was over charged as another ordered a burger with extras, despite paying before me she tried to charge... More

It was buzzing on a Wednesday evening and there was a 20 minute wait for a table so we enjoyed a cocktail in the new Bar 62 next door first which I totally recommend. We haven't been in 62 The Bank for ages because we haven't been all that impressed with the menu over the last year but we enjoyed... More

With comfortable and clean surroundings, good service, plenty of choices on the menu, at reasonable prices, and lovely coffee, what's not to like? We especially love the jacket potato dishes.
