“Ideal for an after work catch up”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2016 via mobile

In the heart of the financial district you will find 'The Bank' aptly named of coarse. The menu is of carefully crafted "Pub" food, as tasty as it is enjoyable. Certainly a favourite not only over lunch but from late afternoon into the evening for many.

“Bistro Posing as Weekend Family Eatery”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2016

So they advertised that 1 kid (4-10 years old) eats for free assuming parents spend $25 on food items, what if parents spend total of $45 on food, and you have 2 kids (1 x 5 year old and 1 x 2 year old), who eats for free? It looks like it is the 5 year old. You end up paying for the 2 year old's meal....which was odd.

The portion for the kids meals was really pathetic. Small and insufficient. If you have a 10 year old (and the kids' menu is meant for 4 to 10 year olds), I think they will starve.

The kids playroom was tiny, unhygienic and lacking in anything to keep kids' attention for more than 20-30 mins. The equipment has not been updated, they were broken and messy with no one tidying it up after other kids have played in the room.

Service by the staff was just very plain and ordinary. No smiles, thanks or anything like that..they behaved as if they rather not be working there on a weekend in the CBD bistro.

My view is that the kids' free meal and the kids room angle of advertising is a gimmick. For the price they charge, better off eating at places with nicer tasting food, more generous portions, that look after their guests properly.

“Disappointing dining experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2016 via mobile

Recommended by some colleagues for a place that feels like an English pub and has good food.
The food was below average. Ordered the Angus steak and chicken as mains. For 32 SGD I expect a lot better steak. Sauce tasted as if made from a pack. Vegetable sides were disappointing. Two steamed pieces of broccoli without any seasoning and one cherry tomato.
Ordered the Cabernet Merlot on happy hour for 13 dollars for a glass. I've never seen a smaller glass of red wine in my life!
Had to order a beer to wash down the disappointment afterwards. Would not recommend going here apart for maybe an after work beer.
