Visited for a christmas meal in a large family group (14 of us) and we opted for the christmas menu. When we arrived it was quiet and we had a pre-meal drink before being seated promptly at our booked time slot. The atmosphere was good and all the staff friendly and attentive. The dining area is set back slightly separately... More

Love this place, perfect pre-drink before hitting it hard at the nightclubs that are open until 6am ;) Cocktails are fabulous and great for private events too!

Booked a table for 17 on Saturday and then went on to the club and had the VIP booth, great night, fantastic food and Doug the Manager could not have done more to make it a truly memorable night. He is a credit to the Old Bank.

Five of us went for lunch today and we could tell the place had changed hands....different staff, different menu and not very busy! Service was good, menu wasn't a patch on what it used to be and the food didn't live up to expectations. Disappointed!

My friend and I went to The Old Bank last night for a few drinks. Good choice of cocktails and drinks on the menu and very good music. Just what you need on a Saturday night.

Then for the main Tuna Niçoise salad, which was perfect the tuna cooked very pink, with an amazingly tasty salad. A great combination of flavours by the chef. Will be returning... More

I enjoyed The old bank a lot more than my friends did. They wanted to give it a 2.5 out of five but I am writing the review so am giving a 4 (well it deserves a 3.7 but I will round up!) I thought the staff were great and clearing the manager knows his stuff- very impressive. My starter... More
