Great meal, just a little disappointed that mushroom burger wasn’t available, although alternative was good, will definitely recommend & visit again.

We booked the roast dinner 8 months in advance and it did not disappoint! It was worth the wait! The food was delicious, service was great, and great value! I've already booked another 2 weekends for 2020!

We felt very much part of a big family lunch. The staff knew most of the customers really well and made us all welcome.

Cannot fault The Bank for a Sunday roast. Definitely the best one in Bristol. I make multiple bookings as it is so popular and I just keep coming back!

Fab service & lovely little pub. The only thing that didn’t earn full marks was the veggie option. Lovely that the bank tavern do a veggie roast but the mushroom & oat loaf was very wet/ soft with little to no other texture. Plus as a veggie mushrooms become VERY boring because it’s the default option everywhere chooses. However, everything else was really lovely.

Yet another amazing roast, starters and desserts were fantastic and the roast was out of the world! Pork so soft didn’t need a knife to cut, beef cooked to perfection and the roast potatoes were crispy on the outside yet smooth and buttery in the middle.... can not fault a thing! Service and price also up there with the food

Sam and team, thanks again for a fantastic afternoon last Sunday. The brilliant food and service was a much needed antidote for pre-exam nerves for the kids and the perfect way to celebrate my birthday. It’s no wonder you’re fully booked for the rest of the year. The best Sunday roast anywhere. I don’t think I’ll need to eat again until another slot becomes free! Cheers - Aidan
