We decided to go to the Bank house for our Golden Wedding celebrations. One of our daughters has used this restaurant with work friends several times. We were directed to "The Board Room" which will hold about 14 diners in comfort. This room is away from the other parts of the hotel which was very busy being it coming up... More

Fantastic historical setting. Actually first Barclays Bank in England, still served at original counter. Oozes with charm and character. Brilliant menu and friendly, helpful staff.

I was expecting a good meal out with friends. The service was very good with a concerned and helpful maitre d', and friendly and a friendly and attentive waitress, but the food just seemed underwhelming. I was disappointed with the choice and ended up having a burger (nothing to write home about) because there was so little to feel drawn... More

We stayed at the Bank House recently and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The rooms have different names and we stayed in Tom's Room which was one of the most comfortable hotel rooms I have ever stayed in. We also ate dinner in the restaurant and really enjoyed the cold shellfish starter platter which was easily enough for two and superb... More

Went to the Bank House with some family members yesterday, we were early, but that was no problem and were shown to our table. I was drinking beer during the meal as were the other guys, and the IPA I had was different (more like a stout but very tasty), The food arrived in good time and the 'taste of... More

The building is wonderful and the table we were given had a great view of the Customs House which has a light show on during the evening which was amazing. We had an early dinner, the staff were friendly and the service was good to start with but as the evening went on and the place filled up, we waited... More

Visited a few weeks back for a promotion of Norfolk food week they were involved in. If the idea was to get people to come and try, like what they see and return, then they have failed big time. Some of the poorest service I have seen for a long while, we had 3 courses, level of cooking was sub... More
