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 and Qype.

Can’t fault the food but the service was a bit bad in the sense this is the second time I’ve been and they’ve rushed me out of my seat. They didn’t even offer me a dessert menu before asking me to leave because they have a big queen outside would of wanted to stay longer but after that no chance

Amazing Customer Service, after showing them my reservation we were sat down within 5mins, always there to make sure we were okay, didn’t have to wait to long for food, came out fresh and amazing, mocktails were the best i’ve ever had, ive been here regularly but this time the service was exceptional there was a muscular asian man with a beard i think he was the owner, great guy, made us feel welcome, opened the door for when we came in and opened it for us to leave, honestly just out of this world

Food is superb. Service is not the best though. We had a 3 year's old birthday party there but yet our order was rushed and we felt not so welcomed there. I understand they expect busy day on fridays but thats not what a business is all about. A litle disappointed in service.

I booked a table for 8 here for my husbands birthday meal. We had a great time and the food was amazing too! The only thing is that I booked my table for 9pm and we arrived on time however we had to wait over 30 minutes for our table! Overall we had a great experience here! Thanks for your service!

Had a great time with my family, the food was delicious and of good portions.
We were a large group of 15 and was pleasantly surprised when all our food arrived at the same time (give or take a few minutes) which was enjoyed by all present.
We will be visiting again soon.

Ordered a steak medium welldone but more well done.Steak was bloody. Spoke to the 1st waitor to explain I was pregnant, he apologiesed & said they try to minimise the blood, but said its sometimes hard to get right.Which I understood as you can't see the inside.We asked for it to be sliced accross & cooked, but he assured us they knew what they were doing. Steak came back, had to ask for knife.Steak still bloody.I was going to eat around the sides as felt embarrassed to ask again, but it was a risk i would have been taking for my unborn. Spoke to another waitor & explained i was pregnant etc, he said his english wasnt good & he would call his manager.Spoke to the manager & explained.Steak came back & still bloody. I Asked for it to be sliced accross & cooked. The 1st Waitor asked if everything was ok, I said it was still bloody. Waitress waited for me to cut my steak so I looked at her & said it was fine. I ate some Mash inbetween my steak being sent back,but it eventually got cold & lost my appetite & partner had finished eating. 6 members of staff asked througout our dining experience if everything was ok as they could see i had sent the steak back 3 times. Towards the end i was a little annoyed, and decided to skip dessert. I was hoping to get my partner birthday dessert as requested under the special requirements section, but didnt as felt embarrassed at service.Our table was cleared & we asked for a takeaway box, which came, but we had no cutlery to put it in the box.We had to ask for cutlery again. I asked for the bill & it wasnt our bill. I explained to the waiter. I think he thought i was being difficult & at first was slightly dissmissive of the bill not being ours. I said i didnt have the avacado and halloumi salad.He said but you had sirloin, its here.I said neither did we have sparkling water.He looked at the table & realised he may have been wrong. He went to the till came over & said sorry, he had printed the bill for the table behind us. £60 wasted

Usually a very good burger place but it was very poor last week. Over-cooked, tough to eat burgers (burgers allegedly made medium-well but arrived beyond well done) and tasteless chicken wings on this occasion. Such a shame, used to be great

Everything was good apart from the bill. I booked through open table which stated that I would get 20% off a burger and side as I booked my table before the discount time ended. However when my bill came I didn’t get any discount so I spoke with the manager (women I think) who said she’ll sort it. She then came and gave me £4 which my bill was just under £50. I proceeded to pay without making further fuss as I went there to break my fast. Was very disappointed in that as it’s advertised in one way then dealt with in a different way. Apart from that all good.

Really nice restaurant which was extremely quiet when we went (quite early on a Saturday lunch as we were with our 1 year old daughter) but it does get very busy in the evenings and weekends. The burgers were really good and the service extremely friendly and welcoming.
We received some nice complimentary bread and cheese whilst we waited for our food and the waiter regularly came to check on us. The food can be a bit expensive for lunch seeing as you don't get sides included with the burgers, however, given the quality of the meat and the sides themselves, it is worth it. What made it even better was the opentable offer which gave us 20% off burger and a side. Would definitely recommend.

Made the booking via open table only to get to The Banc and be told that they do not accept reservations for same day bookings so I said this should be reported back to the open table, thus we had to wait like other customers. Over 35 mins wait. Very loud atmosphere and stood infront of the door for 10-15 mins for someone to come to us so we can talk about our booking. Food was nice but the price has increased vastly compared to before, they’ve made many amendments to the menu sich as no carbs (mash or potatoes) with mains so have to get separate costing more. Dessert was chocolate fondant and was one of the worst fondants i’ve had in my life (novikov, gilgamesh, nobu do the best!). Their chocolate fondant was ridiculously bitter and very slimey to the palette and tongue. T bone steak was very nice and cooked perfectly medium rare but what was most disappointing was the salmon, was nice but just not as nice as it was before (they used to sell the BEST salmon dish!) so had to season myself to make it more edible - still tasted like an average supermarket salmon that you shouldn’t even pay £5 for! , and the portion of the salmon has reduced alot. All in all, very disappointed. Such a shame, having been a customer for them for a number of years and I had spent all that day selling the place to my new husband only for us both disappointed.

Love coming to the banc. Having been here a few times myself, I dragged my brother an his wife on Valentine’s Day. Booked it in advance as I didn’t want to risk not getting a table as I know how busy they got. As usual the food is amazing an so is the atmosphere. The service was impeccable and all the wait staff checked on us a few times. Overall a lovely Valentine’s dinner, my brother an his wife enjoyed it too.
