Ideal for a quick lunch if you are in for salad, steak, chips and an espresso. No fuss, easy service and had no time to stay for what looked like a lovely cheese plate.

As a waiter I try to give every venue the benefit of the doubt. After some shoddy service and very average food, I was left trying to defend the behaviour of staff that were supremely rude to my party, culminating with bringing the manager over...More

I enjoyed a pleasant meal with friends at your Bank restaurant yesterday evening. The steak was tasty and the ambiance appealing. The traditional desserts were particularly gratifying.

Visited this place several times on my business trips to London. Everything you can choose is how your steak should be prepared. Bernaise sauce is outstanding. Reasonable price for London city. I will definitely go here again.

Can't quite believe how the customer does not come first here. I have been a hotelier and restaurateur for 7 years. Butter with your bread? Non! Friendly welcome - simply if expensive choice - walnut salad, followed by steak and chips. What could go wrong?...More

Just simple good food. Good house red at a good price. No menu as only steak chips and sauce along with an excellent walnut salad.

A very unusual but clever approach. Green salad to start, sliced steak 'as you like it' with French fries and various desserts or cheese to follow. That's the whole menu and it's all really good. Typical French cafe style set up, house or a small...More

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
