The Bancroft is a new chef-driven steakhouse and craft cocktail lounge from the Webber Restaurant Group, the family behind the Gibbet Hill Grill and Farm and the Burlington-based Fireside Catering. This restaurant is edgy and urban, an exciting spot to socialize after work and a striking setting for a special night out. The service style is warm and attentive. The environment is dramatic and sexy. We want our guests to have a dining out experience, not just dine out. The Bancroft strives to entertain, to impress, and to be memorable. As a locally owned restaurant group, the Webber family seeks to provide gathering places that are a source of pride for the community, and is invested in making The Bancroft a neighborhood institution in Burlington.
