Went for lunch with my young daughter. Great menu for children. New and improved main menu. Always good service.

Husband and I ate here for valentine's meal after seeing the menu which looked very appetising. Sadly we're very disappointed! Had the salmon shared starter- lots of brown meat, soggy bread and cheap prawns. Husband had lamb for main, more fat than meat and v v pink. I had the steak, very nice but veg had clearly been cooked in microwave. Dessert however was v nice, very surprised considering rest of meal. Red wine served in cheap glasses and was still cold. As for service was ok but appreciate they were very busy . Overall I would sum it up as disappointing meal which we got changed a fortune for.

I arranged my wife's surprise birthday party at The Old Bank in Old Town Swindon. It could not have been better. The staff were amazing! They arranged everything with great enthusiasm. Even offering to put up any banners, balloons, etc we wanted.
On the night, they made every effort to ensure we were happy. The buffet food was fresh and tasty. The DJ was provided with plenty of bar staff, so there was no long queues.
As it was a Saturday night, the agreement was we could have the whole top floor to the party until 9.30pm, but before letting others onto the floor, the manager came up at around 10pm to ask us politely, if it was ok! I thought that was a great touch.
Will definitely be arranging other events here.
Thank you to all at The Old Bank!
