The ambience and staff could not do enough to make our lunch enjoyable, unfortunately the carvery course was not very warm and the vegetarian meal was bland. Shame really. A lady was there on her own and obviously had memory lapses, the venue and their staff looked after this lady and did not charge her for anything she ate, true Christmas spirit and impressive.

We booked The Bank as we know it has a good reputation in Barnstaple with excellent food. Although the service and food was good, however we did not think it was value for money. Portion sizes were minuscule, for example the crate of calamari was filled with more rocket than the actual calamari itself. The seabass was very small as well as the pork belly. For £30 a head I expected more.

We had a party for my youngest daughters 18th birthday her choice was 62The Bank, the table was booked for 18 people although only 17 would be eating - the extra place was for my daughters’ father who had been undergoing treatment for cancer and did not feel he would be up for eating, I pointed this out to the person I handed the food order list to on 25th november and was told that we would be on the table on right hand side of the bar and it was an 18 seat table. The day before we cancelled 1 meal (unfortunately I had miscounted the food order originally) when we arrived on the evening we were actually in the vault (which was fine) but there were not enough seats, this was rectified and the food shortage was also sorted although the young man who dealt with that could adjust his manner and not be quite so officious. Our main waitress (I didn’t get her name she was quite young with dark hair in a ponytail) had a manner that was off hand and slightly rude at some points, the food we were served was all of a good standard, when it came to sweets they all arrived and then she bought in a cheese board which I told her hadn’t been ordered her response was ‘well it was on the list’ I told her it definitely wasn’t and she just put it down regardless, 5 minutes later a different waitress cane in and asked if we’d started eating it and I said no it wasn’t ordered by us to which she said ‘no it was a mistake!’ As I knew it was! When my eldest daughter asked if we could do the cake the waitress replied in a brusque fashion she needed to clear tables of rubbish first, fair enough but a little more polite and friendly manner would have been nice! Sadly we had overlooked candles for the cake but the staff did manage to locate some which we were grateful for. Some of our guests were surprised that they had to go into Bar 62 to obtain drinks and again the manner in which they were informed was somewhat lacking . It was a shame that a few small attitude problems could have spoilt an important occasion and it wasn’t a cheap occasion either! As a family we have always enjoyed our experience at 62 The Bank.

Great food, quick service and lovely atmosphere. It didn’t feel rushed even though we only had a two hour slot and I would recommend you to others.

We booked for a hen do, to include your cocktail making class followed by dinner. From the moment we arrived we were so well looked after by all staff, but in particular Dan. Dan absolutely made our night. He was so much fun, made us laugh so hard, partook in some dares which was above and beyond the call of duty and, importantly helped us to make some amazing cocktails! Please thank him from all of us. I hope he is not too badly traumatised! Your team are a great asset to the company. Thanks so much. Katy

My boyfriend and I came to 62 The Bank for my birthday meal. We had a fantastic experience. We were greeted by Natalie, who was delightful and helpful throughout, giving us just the right amount of attention and checking in on us regularly. The food was gorgeous. Portion servings were huge! We left feeling very full and satisfied. We then had some cocktails in Bar62 which were amazing.

After the initial welcome into the restaurant, the service then went downhill. Considering it was a very quiet Tuesday evening we waited ages between courses. Staff were at bar chatting, the quickest time we were seen too was when we had been given the menu for deserts & the waitress was back before we had even had a chance to look at them. Have been to The Bank on many previous occasions with no issue - hope this was a one off.

We booked to the cocktail masterclass for a small hen do and it was fab! We were shown how to make three cocktails before getting the opportunity to make them ourselves. We had a little break in between each one, so that we could sit back, relax, chat and enjoy our creations. The service was excellent! It was great value for money! And everyone had a brill time! We'll definitely be going back there again soon. Thank you Bar 62!
