This was my third visit to the Bank Tavern and yet again they delivered. Fantastic presentation, value for money and quality of food. Worth the three month wait.

Really enjoyed our lunch, it was delicious! Will defiantly be coming back. The only disappointment is that I've been charged twice having checked my bank this morning, I've left a voice message for The Bank Tavern regarding this and am waiting hear back. Good value for money but it wasn't worth double......

What can I say. As always the staff are incredibly friendly. The food.... WOW! Each course is well thought through. I like coming here as the chef obviously loves food. Always interesting extras to the starters so you'll often try something new. The cheese beignets.... I could live off these. Melt in the mouth with a nice cheesy taste. Gorgeous roast with nice pink beef. Finished off with a stunning tart tatine. Shame we'll have to wait so long until we can next visit.

Food was fantastic, huge portions and amazing value for money. Service was a bit rushed at times which was shame because the food was so good; we weren't offered drinks before our order was taken, check back was almost immediate and drinks were picked up before they were finished with. However we still had an amazing time and will definitely be back!

Fantastic meal, definitely deserved of the best Sunday roast in Bristol. Really lovely place, relaxed and welcoming. Just sad we can’t book another table for so long because your sundays are fully booked for months.

Gonna be honest, this Sunday’s lunch wasn’t as good as the last visit we had. Beef was tasty but slightly stringy and we missed our carrots, which were fabulous last time out. But we recognise that you have to mix things up a bit. Just didn’t leave with the same kind of buzz we did after our first visit. We are back again late May so hopefully that will be back again with a vengeance. Still the best Sunday lunch around though!

Treated my family to the now infamous Sunday roast and it didn't disappoint. It is the perfect blend of the quality and presentation of a high-end restaurant, but the quantity of a pub roast that left everyone happy. I was too full for the desserts myself, but I was assured by those who did that they were also excellent. The value for money really is excellent.
