Another great meal at The Old Bank! our 5th visit - and no hesitations regarding returning. Definitely one of the best (if not the best) fine dining restaurants in this area. Great food and service, excellent choice of reasonably priced wines - you would have to go into London to achieve this type of high level. Well done to the chef & management and keep up the good work!

Fantastic taster menu to celebrate our anniversary! What a treat it was. Celeriac dish was a winner as was the passion fruit cup and of course the soufflé!! Delicious.

We are frequent customers these days as the quality of the food is second to none locally. It’s difficult to settle for a meal anywhere else. The staff remember you and are excellent

We attended for my mother's 70th this Sunday. It is good to know we finally have a fine dining establishment in Sevenoaks. The food is excellent, and I hope in due course it will receive the formal recognition it deserves but in my opinion, it is at least of a 3AA rosette standard if not higher (we had the Sunday lunch menu rather than the al a carte so it indeed may be even better). Portions are generous and the plates well presented. Staff are engaging and helpful and this all comes together to create a really nice atmosphere for the diners.

Another night of excellent food and service. Since The old Bank opened it has been our favourite establishment in Kent The service has got better and better, with Luciano the head Sommelier and Liam the Head Waiter they have got to know our preferences, which has enhanced our experience. After recently visiting Bray near Windsor and eating in all of the Hestons restaurants including The Fat Duck I was looking forward to returning to The Old Bank this weekend! We have now introduced many friends to The Old Bank, and I trust Adam will soon find himself with a Michelin Star.

Delicious and freshly prepared but a great shame about the very very slow service. 2 hours for the set menu . Only had 2 courses as we would still be there! Felt that they were more keen to serve the tables of 4 who were a la Carte . Big shame as we would go back for the food but not the service. Maybe give them Another chance but be ready for it to be slow. Quick to get the drink poured and keep coming up to pour but not to bring the meal. But chef and food great!

I really appreciated all the help everyone gave me in advance (responding to my queries) and providing outstanding service on the night. It made my 40th birthday meal really special. The whole experience was amazing. Great, interesting & delicious food and fantastic staff. We all had a great time. I can't sing your praises enough.

Unusually my other half and I had the same starter and main.We both agreed the generous portion of Red Legged Partridge with autumn truffle, pear and nasturtium starter was possibly the best starter we can remember having. It was wonderful. Perhaps this was because we had been "warmed up" by three different and very tasty complimentary canapes and three types of on site baked bread and homemade butters. The Chicken skin butter is fabulous. We loved the perfectly cooked rump of beef together with braised tail which melted in the mouth. The accompanying cep mushroom, chervil root and carrot puree worked very well with the beef. We are not great fans of desserts but the Chocolate Chip Souffle with milk ice cream is the lightest most delicate of desserts and yet full of flavour and very enjoyable.. We like the well balanced wine list too, there are good quality wines under £35. My test of any restaurant is the quality of the "House Wines" the Old Bank sails easily passes that test.

Tried the 7 course tasting menu with wine. Loved the snacks, mushroom risotto and beef courses. All full of flavor and cooked to perfection. Other courses were ok, but not anyway up to the same standard. Crab course came out warm but not hot. Service let it down a bit. While staff were friendly timing of wine vs food did not always work. Had to ask for accompanying wine on two instances. Also one of my main dish got served when I was in the toilet and was sitting on the table getting cold. White wine was also not chilled enough. Overall a good night but not amazing so will be not rushing back.

We had the 8 course tasting menu. Service was a bit too swift for the first 3 courses but slowed down after. Dishes were very tasty. Mushroom dish a little too big and the beef was a little chewy. Favourite dish was the crab - devine. Will return to try the a la carte.

Our only slight complaint would be that it was quite cold especially when people were coming in and out but a bit chilly throughout the meal. The food was fantastic and service good. Lovely atmosphere and very good value for the quality. The souffle was absolutely sublime!!
