First meal out since lock down.
We were greeted with a smile.
The secure hut to dine in was perfect.
Food as always was scrumptious.
Staff were amazing throughout the evening.

Excellent food as usual - very friendly welcome from the owner on arrival, felt safe and comfortable at all times in relation to COVID adherence - we were seated in one of the outdoor "pods", which are very quirky and were served by a very friendly and happy waitress. A real "treat" to eat out and The Bank never disappoints.

Food was good, maybe our expectations were too high after reading reviews but for some of the tapas,ie. Potatoes con bravo sauce were a disappointment, cocktails for what they were were overpriced, service was pleasant and nicely attentive. Will we go again? more than likely yes but it will not be a regular haunt.

Everything about the Bank is impressive, it goes from strength to strength. We have eaten here on many occasions but this was our first experience of dining in one of the new pods ( private dining rooms) and we really enjoyed it.

Will be back and would highly recommend

A wonderful dinner as always. We like sitting in the shed, sorry, booth, but at this time of year it's a bit chilly. Blankets and heaters were provided. We love the food and the service is excellent.
