As the name suggests this converted lloyds bank is a great venue and has a superb eat in restaurant. At first sight it seems cheap and cheerful with its basic wooden tables and chairs. Looks can be deceptive. The waitresses are really good, the food...More

Came here for take away. The place was very busy which is always a good sign. The portions that they give you are huge - 2 people can easily share the large portions. The food was good and they make great mushy peas

We had good fish (and I liked being able to have breadcrumbs rather than batter on mt haddock, but the batter was good too) and a good sausage, but the chips let them down - lots of them but going soggy. Excellent sixties music! Good...More
