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.

Poor service from staff! Waited over half an hour for my booked table, not even apologetic. Then they basically rushed us! Staff arguing in front of customers!

lovely food but service was poor, i was waiting for 20 mins upon entry to be served. the waiters don’t pay attention unless you go up to them. i asked a waiter for a card machine .. had me waiting for another 15 minutes and completely forgot about bringing me my card machine.

Food was nice but a little bit expensive. Service was slow to start with as lots of staff were cleaning and not taking orders.

Once service started it was good and attentive.

Food was good quality but it would be better value to include one side dish as part of the meal

We live locally and have often visited. We would visit more often if it was better value for money

Visited The Banc with friends for my birthday and had a really really great time. Only downside was the slow service. The waiters themselves were lovely but as the evening went on we had to wait longer and longer for things - drinks, extra napkins, etc so in the end we didn't pay service charge. Having said this we still had a brilliant night and will definitely be back soon as the food was amazing - as a smaller group next time.

The food was good however we were always reminded of the two hour slot we had which created some pressure on to finish up quickly. the place is ideal to eat and go you cant be sitting around to enjoy another drink or so.

Food was good no complaints there however the seating is way too tight. If you want a romantic meal and some space this isn’t for you. I would say it’s more of a place to come with the friends and have a quick bite. Music was a bit too loud. If you love a messy burger that taste delicious then definitely pay a visit. I would recommend booking a table online as I didn’t have to wait even though the restaurant was full and people waiting. A burger meal for 4 with fizzy drinks came to £75. Pricy some would say but each to their own.

The service was great in both the restaurant and shisha lounge downstairs, servers were very attentive and prompt. Food was very tasty, great selection of burgers and steaks, would recommend the pollo milanese. Yassin in the shisha lounge was very friendly and gave great shisha options. Daniel and Jazz were also great, with Daniel escorting us to our car taking service to the next level. Would recommend for any celebration.

Overall the food was good. I ordered a the Ribeye steak burger but was not asked how I liked my steak done. Disappointing. We did not enjoy the Mac and Cheese and did not recieve 20% off our burger and side as advertised even after asking for this to be factored into our bill. I found the staff to be quite chaotic as we dealt with about 4-5 different people during our visit. Overall good food and decent service . I'd say avoid the mac and cheese.

It was my first time there, went with family and few friends for my birthday, staff was extremely helpful and hands on, really busy for a Saturday night, atmosphere was really lively and bright. I personally think the food was alright, I would have expected it to be more better. But overall I enjoyed my night

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.
