Who Are We

We are an independent, family-run bar and bistro, where everyone helps from aunties and uncles through to our parents.

Owner Alex even met his wife when she was a customer in the restaurant. Now they have two daughters who love popping in for a cocktail!

Aunty Pauline does the accounts and generally keeps an eye on Alex’s spending, while Uncle Ross fixes the toilets, paints and does all the jobs no one else wants to do.

Our passion is for excellent, home-cooked food and first-class customer service, whether you’ve just popped in for a coffee or are celebrating a special occasion.

We first opened our doors in 2009 and we love being in the centre of the town, sharing your celebrations with you.

After a year which saw us open for a grand total of eight weeks, we can’t wait to see the bar and bistro thriving again with happy people meeting friends and family.

Our relaxed venue, fantastic food, amazing cocktails and our friendly, professional team await you.

So what can you expect at The Bank Bar and Bistro?

Our large main bar area on the ground floor is where you can choose between comfortable, cosy sofas, high stools or traditional tables and chairs. It’s whatever makes you feel relaxed.

Perfect for larger parties (when we can!), our upstairs lounge can be hired for all those special occasions where you want exclusivity for your family and friends. The lounge boasts a fully stocked bar, a range of seating and a small dance area.

Our team will provide a full table service for all orders so sit back and relax. We’ve done enough queuing and waiting around - you need to enjoy every second of your time with your guests!
