Stopped by on a Friday after 8pm. We had not booked but they had tables for two left. Service was quick and friendly and the menu was good. Food very nice. We ordered the Burger and the Sausage & Mash.

Very pleasant place to stop for a coffee during the day. The Old Bank has a nice patio at the rear that is a sun trap. The staff appear pleased to see customers and smile genuinely.
Cheaper than the nearby alternatives.

Have been a couple of times in the last two months. Both times the food was great. It's a smaller menu than some other comparable restaurants but what they do they do well. The service was great with emailed confirmations of booking. The wine list is quite select but doesn't include the country of origin; allowing us to taste it beforehand was a nice touch. A good place for a quality meal.

Only eaten there once. Was pretty standard. Nothing bad but nothing to really excite either. Mainly will go there late for drinks. I think slightly overpriced for swindon. London prices. Has a patio outside which is nice when the dance floor gets overcrowded. Can be quite a tussle to get to the bar although if your eating downstaira things are more civilised. Will go there once a month or so but old town isn't really overflowing with choice after pubs shut.

A nice meal out in the heart of Old Town. Many restaurants to choose from though.
Food quality is okay, the service is okay and the location is good.
The restaurant is ideal for couples and business functions.
