“Nice meal and speedy accomodating service”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Booked in advance as they have a deal where you can get 20% off your food bill with NHS card if you book in advance. The staff were accommodating as we had extra people turn up and had the feeling nothing was too much trouble.
Food was really good but felt the main was a little small.
All in all though a good venue and will return and recommend.

“Delicious”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

What a beautiful restaurant. We had the 3 course meal. Our first night in Scotland and we were impressed. The waiter was wonderful. We were late getting there but they kept the kitchen open for us. The pub next door is out of this world.

“Awesome”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

So I might be a bit biased as this pub come bistro is actually less than 20ft from my front door. but is a lovely place for a drink or a bite. Just not on footbal nights obviously. Get the chicken caesar it's the best!

“Small plate for lunch (tiny)”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Had piri piri chicken for lunch - tasty but when they small - they should say tiny!! £5 for a skewer of two bite size if chicken, slice of onion and a button mushroom!! Hubby had small plate haggis n neeps - a spoonful of haggis and same for neeps and tatties £5. There is small - but .......
Cheryl, manager is lovely and cheery - that's the only plus.
Tried a couple of times to see the football but the sound system for the World Cup is poor.
Will go elsewhere.
Even when the football is not on the background music is terrible - all.you can hear is the base going bump bump and no recognisable songs.

Hi There
Thanks for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. I am sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your recent trip to The Bank. We have a new menu launching very soon and will be sure to take your comments on board regarding the portion size. I believe any issue with our sound system was temporary and everything is back to normal now. Again thanks for taking the time provided us with your feedback & I hope we can persuade you to join us at The Bank again soon.
Kind Regards

“Busy but pleasant bar”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Nice atmosphere, reasonable seating provision, good drinks choice. Service not as prompt as I would have expected from what appeared a well staffed bar.
