If you love guitars, your meal will go cold. There are some great axes hanging on the old walls in this restaurant.
The meals are good, well priced and served nicely. Friendly staff make sure you are well watered. If the weather is mild (as it was in March for us), the verandah is a great place to sit and eat. Live music most weekends.

We took the kids after a day at the zoo, and the back deck was a great place to relax with a drink. All our meals were excellent. The kids loved their pasta, and we enjoyed the pork and the goats cheese summer tart. Desserts and coffee were also good. Recommended - really glad we discovered this place.

Beautiful building and decor. Had to wait a long time to be served for a drink. Went to a table and sat down to have a meal. Staff appeared to avoid you. Felt like we were in the wrong area. Was not sure if it was table service or what to do. Then we received our main meal and the entree was forgotten. Person delivering main meals said they would check what happened. We told them we did not want the entree now, however we still got charged for it and there was no explanation as to what was the problem. Perhaps training in customer service would help. There seemed to be a lot of staff around.

The new owners of the Bank Restaurant should be congratulated. They've clearly spent a good deal of thought (and money) on reviving this old building for the rest of us to enjoy and all the hard work has paid off. The place looks great. Sadly the food is letting them down badly. We went for lunch and the menu is ordinary to say the least. It was a matter of trying to find something we might want to eat rather than trying to decide between dishes. A lot of bread and chips on other plates in the room so I went for the Greek salad ($16). Olives not pitted, soggy lettuce, "croutons" that could break a tooth, too old tomatoes, the lot drowned in an overwhelming yet tasteless dressing. I left most of it on the plate. Perhaps this happens quite often as the waitress didn't say a word. Just asked if we were finished and whisked the plates away.
I wish the owners all the best in their new venture but I won't be going back anytime soon.

After searching online for restaurants to go to in Dubbo we stabled across "old bank restaurant" on trip advisors review page, after reading the post from a Unsatisfied Customer, we were a little hesitant but thought we would see for ourselves. We called to make a booking, and so glad we did, the restaurant is absolutely beautiful, the staff were exceptional and the food was to die for. You don't see many places with live music these days. After speaking with the lovely staff we found out the restaurant had only recently opened. So glad we didn't take to much notice to past reviews, and gave it a go for ourselves. Would recommend to anyone.
