We have owned and operated 294 cafe & bistro, we then moved to 616 Bury rd and opened as The Bank café, bar & grill. We traded there for 2 and a half years growing into a more high end casual eatery. Our reputation has grown from strength to strength and we have remained in the top 3 restaurants in Bolton during this time. We have now moved into the town centre in the new Vaults dining area of The Market Place shopping centre. We hope to be here for a long time to come.
