I live a few hundred metres from The Bank House, and as a result am a regular visitor. I must say, I have never been let down or disappointed. Whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner, or even simply a drink in the bar, their selection is wide and of good quality. This place benefits a welcoming and cosy atmosphere of... More

We were warmly welcomed and checked in. We had a very spacious beroom which overlooked the quay and square. Big bathroom. Home baked cookies in our room. We were there on a hot day so had drinks on the terrace. Excellent dinner. Good breakfast (best bacon I have had in a long time). Will certainly return. No lift in building.

Me and a friend came in for afternoon tea yesterday and have to say it was just wonderful. I have a very severe tree nut allergy and called in advance for some allergy advice, and they were very informative and helpful about this matter. The Afternoon tea itself was delightful, the bread for the sandwiches was lovely and soft-not like... More

Sitting in the bank house and none of us can stop praising Justin! He is superb! Friendly, professional, warm, fun and knowledgable! Good food (well done kitchen team) good gin (attentive friendly bar staff) good service - he has made our night! Every pub/restaurant should have a Justin! He never lets anyone down and is the epitome of hospitality!

Chanced by this beautiful hotel / restaurant on a Sunday afternoon walk and booked for that evening. Had the most beautiful dinner, in lovely surroundings. We were served by the owner, who was full of local information and humorous tales. He must be very proud of his successful business. We had 2 drinks, starter and dinner, in this most beautiful...

The bank House ranks amongst the top three restaurants in King's Lynn. Possibly stealing top place for location - close to the Custom House at the Purfleet. It's an upmarket restaurant catering mostly for the professionals (solicitors, estate agents) who are nearby. It has studied its demographics well and delivers. We celebrated an anniversary recently and liked the look of... More

We went here after a long drive and looking for a place to lunch. Tripadvisor gave it an average score, but the fact that the sun was shining and the view on the river made the visit good. The cold beer on the terras and the fish plate were nice to eat. Something I am not used to have in... More

Lovely weather and amazing view both of which was spoiled by the poor staff service. Five staff members chatting at the bar and no one to serve the tables :-(

Stopped on journey between Suffolk and Yorkshire to see historic quayside and fell upon this gem. Had large antipasti platter and glass of wine - both excellent!
