Jan and Fabio opened the doors of The Banc in 2011 – reclaiming it’s status on West Green Road (it used to be a former Barclays bank) and renovating it with love and care to add some much needed pizazz to the area.

The Mediterranean style restaurant has loads of twists, from home-made burgers to farmed fishes. This was a labour of love for our young men, two local boys who went to the local comp and decided to give something back to their community.

They pride themselves on the fabulous fresh cooked food and they serve a legendary T Bone steak (try it – it’s out of this world). Come and visit the Banc and you’ll be bowled over by their hospitality – the duo are renowned for their service with a smile. Go on, make your day special, drop by The Banc.

If you don't take for it, please read reviews on tripadvisor, opentable, google and Facebook.

Quite surprising this place is hard to book because it's very mediocre. Food isn't great, nothing to write home about. Definitely wouldn't go here again. Not worth it and over hyped. Our waiter was great though. That's it really! I wouldn't recommend if I'm honest.

Me and my husband went for the first time for our 1st anniversary and loved everything about this place. It was abit expensive but we did order the T-bone steak with extras and it was cooked to perfection! The lady that served us her name was nurys she was an absolute diamond. The owner of the Banc was there and my husband even had to go up to him just to say how much we loved it. Will definitely recommend to family and friends.

The Banc was the best restaurant I have ever visited. Everything was flawless and our waitress was so kind and down to earth. The chicken was the best I have ever tasted in my entire life and the burgers were unreal!

Definitely not a place to have a relaxed intimate meal. Waitress kept fussing over placement of every item on the table, was not given room to breath! Felt rushed the whole time - couldn’t even swallow my last fork full before plates were whisked away. Owner appeared suddenly to ask how the food was before i could even ask my date the same question... I just said it was “good” because who wants to get into a long discussion about how poor everything was when I’d already felt I’d wasted enough time and money here? Portion size was teeny tiny for the mixed grill. Food taste was decent, but doesn’t justify price. I’ve been here years ago and had an amazing experience, seems like they’ve sadly given into their own hype and let standards slip.

I think its overrated, when you see the place on Instagram you think oh it looks great trust me there are plenty better places for a cheaper option, I mean the food was good but a RIP off , the music was unknown , atmosphere was dead and on top of that If you book the lounge u only get 2 hours for food and shisha so u have to rush to eat .
I wouldn't go there my self and I would advice my friends not to

Our first time there and it was a nice experience tbh. The food was good but from what I’ve heard of the place, I guess our expectations were higher then what I must say was delivered. On a more positive note, our host was fantastic, very attentive to our needs. Would I go again? Yes.

The Banc was easily one of the best if the the best restaurant I've ever been too. The staff gave such an amazing service and the food was 10 out of 10. Starters only took 5 minutes to come and the mains only 10mins. Me and my girlfriend Was served by chris a couple days agoo and he made sure our experience was perfect.

I and my friend ordered our sirloin steak medium rare but they gave well done which was dry and we thought it was going to get better that’s why we refused new steaks but it got worse. Which later lead to an upset stomach

Its a nice decent place with good food. Service can differ tremendously depending who is serving. This time service was average and nothing more even though it was not busy at all. Price is very high and expensive.
Strawberry mojito was excellent. Ferrero milkshake was good.

Would i go back? Ermm Maybe, not anytime soon.

The service of waiters is great as they're welcoming and friendly to every single customer, food was absolutely full of flavour especially the wild sea bass And atmosphere felt like you was away from London as it has a dark luxory look to it

Was very underwhelmed, expected it to be more posh. Service wasn’t great. The girl downstairs in shisha was lovely and the service downstairs was generally a lot better than upstairs. However upstairs the food wasn’t to my taste and service really wasn’t that special

I really enjoyed the food, although our waitress was really good the food was slow to come out.
The food was very well seasoned and I enjoyed everything but the mac and cheese.
A little pricey for the location but we enjoyed it.

Me, my sister and my cousin went to the banc to celebrate my 24th birthday just through having dinner.
The service was amazing! Everyone is so nice, attentive, caring.
They all asked us if we were okay dozens of times!
The food is outstanding! One of my favourite restaurants.
Loved it!

Found the service was fantastic, food was good, could have been a little tastier, but was good. My only issue was we ordered 2 alcoholic cocktails one felt it didn’t have any alcohol in, we spoke to the bar tender he mentioned this drink always gets the same response from other customers, I know what a strawberry daiquiri tastes like, that wasn’t a strawberry daiquiri. Other than that load of smiles, the chap with the tattoos was a bit too touchy feely. Cam and the other chap who bought are food were both fantastic, made us feel very comfortable, will definitely come back.

Nice service, very average food, too loud in terms of music, too crowded in terms of tables being jammed together. Charging high end prices for average to below average food. Pretending to be something that it is not but customers who go their do not seem to know any better.
