Well, this is a real gem of a find. Fantastic real food (not a ping of a microwave to be heard) We've had their Sunday roast and a full English breakfast (not on the same day!) and the food is faultless and the service absolutely first class. Oh if only everywhere was like this.

We visited Charmouth for a little fossil hunting. We thought we would grab a sandwich before starting a long drive back home. We went in the door, following after another group of people. There were several spare tables and whilst the first group were enquiring for a table I thought I'd sit down. A local couple warned us we might... More

We are sorry to hear of your unpleasant experience at The Bank House. I remember the day clearly as we only serve traditional Sunday Lunch between 12-2pm as advertised on our board outside. Although the there were vacant tables when you came in these were in fact reserved as we were fully booked that day. Sunday lunch is very popular... More

We were staying in Charmouth and wanted somewhere to eat in the evening other than a pub. The Bank House fitted the bill perfectly. The welcome was friendly. The evening menu was already on the table but we were also advised of the daily specials on the board. I chose Thai green curry - I had the option of chicken... More

We have just had the most amazing Sunday lunch at Bank House. Incredible value too!! We were lucky enough to book the last table and children all tucked in to an amazing meal of roast beef or pork with all the trimmings! Vegetables were beautiful and the fact that it was fully booked tells you how good it was. Finished... More

Stopped here for lunch on Saturday as a group of 7 with 3 children. Despite the initial disappointment of them having steak baguette on the menu but none available we decided to try the place out. The food was fantastic with big chunky chips and an excellent burger. The paninis were also excellent and on the whole the menu was... More

Stopped here on a Sunday afternoon, for tea - lovely welcome from the owners and varied 'snack' menu as it was after 2.30pm. Cafe was very bright and airy- spotlessly clean. Good service and tasty panini / cream tea! Very reasonably priced too. We had our dog with us, so could sit outside - water for dog provided. Will definitely... More
