Beautiful furnishings,and some of the original Bank decor eg moulded ceilings, marble walls, and dark wood panelling. Comfy leather sofas, upstairs. Staff are welcoming. The place is very clean, with delightful ladies toilets. Hand sanitiser on entry. Piped music. My meal was delicious- mixed grill.
