I had the prawn skewers to start which came with sweet chilli sauce and were good. For main I had the fillet rare and it was unbelievably good. My... More

My husband and I visited this hidden gem. Funky well decorated. The service was outstanding, the waiting staff here are incredibly attentive and professional. They care about the customers and their experience. The food was very delicious, we will be coming back to try other dishes. Hope they consider franchising!

Visited the Banc with a couple of friends after lots of people recommended. Place is nice enough and service is great, food nice but there are a lot of burger places like this in London now and nothing special about it. The Lamb chops were cooked very well.

Really good food, nice atmosphere, great portions which you'll struggle to finish, milkshakes weren't too great though, tasted more like double cream poured into a glass, but the food overall was really nice. Hallumi was a little salty, steak was ace. Would recommend, would revisit.

Dear Superhaq, Thank you for your review. We are really pleased you enjoyed our food and atmosphere. Apologies about the milkshakes, we do use a touch of double cream and perhaps on this occasion it proved alittle too much. Apologies about the halloumi, we do not add salt to our halloumi as in general it is a relatively salty cheese.... More

I've been here twice now, and it's been good food both times. Excellent service first time. But the second time we were left waiting for a bit. Excellent atmosphere and family friendly. The portions are a good size and delicious hence the price of £9 for a burger.

Description
Fabio and Jan opened the doors of The Banc in 2011 - reclaiming it's status on West Green Road (it used to be a former Barclays Bank), which inspired the restaurants name and renovating it with love and care to add some much needed pizazz to the area.

A Burger & Steakhouse Restaurant with a touch of fine dinning and a labour of love for two young men, two local boys who went to the local school opposite the restaurant and decided to give something back to their community.
Beautifully layout out over 2 floors, The Banc has an opened kitchen, contemporary decoration with hints of pearl white and red walls on one level and a black and white theme on the upper level which is superbly decadent and romantic.

Fabio & Jan pride themselves on fabulous fresh cooked food, friendly, passionate and personal service. You will always see them either at the restaurant or outdoor lounge entertaining their guests.

At The Banc the freshest produce, fish and matured meat are combined with the highest quality ingredients in order to create mouth watering dishes with unique presentation. With such fascinating dishes there is also a credible wine list and home-made desserts.

We welcome your visit and hope to earn your repeated custom.

Fabio & Jan
