“Great service & delicious lunch”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

I recently ate here with a large group of seniors & couldn't fault the food or the service. The staff were fantastic & so accommodating. Cheerful into the bargain. The chef - Anita, could not have been more helpful. The food was well presented & plentiful. We thought it was a fabulous place to stop. The building itself - as the name denotes - was an old bank. The pressed tin ceilings were gorgeous. The renovations were very tastefully done. The place is part of the Carrington Hotel, not that you'd know - as it seems to have no connection to the place. Would certainly return when we are next in the Blue Mountains.

“A pub with character.”
Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

This pub is located in the heart of Katoomba.

This restaurant holds true to its character as the old bank, and makes an enjoyable place to eat and socialise within.

The garlic sauce that came with the steak was to die for!! DELICIOUS!

“British pub feeling with excellent quality food”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Had two dinners at Old City Bank in Katoomba, one consisting of pizza and the other of salmon. Both dishes were great quality, staff was friendly, talkative and happy. We felt very welcome. They did have live music on weekends with a band who played a good mix of oldies. Would definitely go back!

“Try the Rabbit Ragu”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We dined on the Rabbit Ragu (to die for even my daughter liked it and i was bold enought to make it at home), the pork belly (a little dry in spots and lacking falvour) and a pizza (great base and lovely toppings), combined with history, very nice evening, friendly staff and prompt service, would dine there again.

“Good food; great atmosphere”
Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed our meal here, very filling and there was a kids menu which was great. Loved the cosy old building, and the large photos of the carrington from yesteryear.
