Very welcoming but the best part the food We ordered soup and prawn starters Burger,chicken and scampi mains and a chocolate pot pudding We were not disappointed It was fresh and cooked to perfection! Thank you Bank and staff!

Had a lovely meal at the Bank. Flavourful food attentive, friendly service. The portions were enormous! Atmospherically lit with candles I would just say it was a little too dark.

On a freezing cold Thanksgiving we visited Brecon with our US friends, stopped at The Bank for a warm and a bite to eat. The place was beautiful with a warm welcome and a cosy atmosphere, friendly, helpful staff and amazing food. The toilets were spotless which is a huge thumbs up for me! 😊 We will definitely be returning... More
