    We have been coming to Cornwall for the past 3 years and this is the first time we have visited The Bank. It was lovely. My partner had wanted to try the seafood tapas and on the night we were due to come, he fell ill, meaning we had to cancel the booking. The staff were amazing, they moved our booking to another date, showed that they cared, sending him well wishes and communication was fantastic. It did not disappoint on the night and the staff were friendly, professional and attentive. The food was amazing, in fact we ordered too much. The portions were generous for tapas and the setting was so quirky and cosy but stylish and perfect for any date or get together. We will definitely be back next time we are on holiday. It is a 'must' to visit.

    This is our absolute favourite restaurant and we try to eat here as much as possible. The staff are very attentive and friendly and always provide excellent service. The food is sublime! The pods are our favourite spot but they’re very popular so get booked up really quickly. The main restaurant is very nice though and decorated really prettily.

    We had 3 fish dishes & 3 meat ones, plus the fresh breast for nibbles. Absolutely delicious & the perfect amount after a very long, tiring walk. The private pod was perfect with the doggies and contained the puppy from any carnage. Unfortunately the sangria was very watered down and not really what we expected as most of the 1.5 ltr was a huge lump of ice so we only really got about half what we expected but we’ll know not to order that next time. Will definely be back though.

    Hi Suzanne, Thank you so much for your visit and time to leave us your kind review although we are sorry about the lump of ice in your sangria! We are always more than happy to rectify these things so upon your next visit any Sangria that is too much ice or if you would like no ice please do let us know and we can some fresh sent out to you to enjoy :). We hope the doggies also enjoyed their visit and too see you all again soon. Many thanks again!

    Incredible food and service as always. My partner and I have always loved coming here. Since our last visit he has had a coeliac diagnosis so we were worried he may not be able to have what he usually does, we didn’t need to worry at all. Nearly all of the menu was coeliac friendly and the staff were great. They also had a gluten free beer available too.

Many thanks again and hope to see you again soon!

    A lovely find. Such a lot of choices on the menu and most are GF which was fantastic. All the staff were so friendly and professional. We love tapas and was great to find some dishes we haven’t seen before on other tapas menus. All dishes we ordered were delicious. Thank you all for a lovely evening. X
