We really enjoyed out first Sunday lunch at the Bank Tavern... nice little pub and the ervice was quick and friendly. Over all we were impressed and the value for money was great. The only negative thing I would say is that the starter wasn't very good (the duck and potato cake lacked flavour and the satay sauce didn't taste like satay). But the roast itself was really well done - the beef was lovely, generous portion size and came with an extra jug of gravy without having to ask! We both have the brownie for dessert and it was one of the best things I have ever eaten!

This was the most amazing 3 course Sunday lunch. Everything within all courses was outstanding. Starter of cheddar beignuts was smooth and crunchy, the ox tongue rich and packed with flavour. The rare roast beef was beautifully done, the selection of vegetables all cooked to perfection, roast potatoes and yorkie all a complete pleasure. The brownie to finish was a triumph. Warm and gooey, came with an espresso cream, honeycomb and salted caramel. Stunning combination!! They deserve all the great reviews I’ve read and why the wait for a Sunday is so long but totally worth it. Service was friendly, the star deducted was just because we asked for extra gravy which was forgotten and by the time it arrived we were over halfway through the main. Otherwise a fantastic meal that will take some beating. Very happy.

Best pudding I have had. Always feels rushed at the end as 1.5 hours is not enough time but I know why it has to be done.

This was my first visit to The Bank Tavern and had Sunday lunch which was excellent and the staff were very welcoming and were happy to accommodate changes to the menu. Not the cheapest Sunday lunch but definitely great value for money.

Without doubt the very best roast dinner I have EVER had. The flavours and quality offered up in a simple roast dinner are second the none. And the accompanying two other courses were amazing to. Fantastic value for money in a great venue. We WILL Be Back. Thank you so much.
