Our second time at The Old Bank and highly recommended! 5* on all counts (again). The menu was great the first time around but it was still nice that some courses had changed for this visit. Two of us tucked in to the quail and mushroom starters, the chicken and skate mains, and finished with the chocolate bar and panna cotta. We could have chosen anything from the menu, and will! Thank you and welcome to Westerham.

We enjoyed the food very much but did find the constant bringing out of tray stands to every table a bit off-putting. A lot of the time a couple of plates could have easily have been carried. I appreciate they are handy at a large table but with 2 or 3 people at a table we found it a bit unnecessary and fussy.

Having previously enjoyed a couple of weekday lunches, we booked (easy to do online) a Sunday lunch. We were not disappointed !!! Excellent crab starter, succulent lamb for my Wife and superb medium rare beef for me. Tried out the House Red - very acceptable but we are looking forward to exploring the interesting wine list. Service attentive but not intrusive. Will we come again ?? --- YES

Just a bit disappointing so not worth the money at these prices. Lunch menu has a limited choice so when one fish option was not available the menu becomes too restrictive. Starter portions are very small and deserts probably too generous, this needs balancing. The first time we went they had a delightful pink sparkling wine which was still on the menu but not available, unfortunately the replacement was very poor. It’s a shame as there are few decent restaurants around but we won’t be returning.

Food was good but the staff need some training. Too many mistakes and certainly not of the standard reflected in a fine dining experience

Our table wasn’t ready until 8:45 so we had to wait in the middle of the dining room until the previous occupant was finished. The food was excellent - a fantastic combination of dishes for a tasting menu and a breath of fresh air to the area. There simply isn’t a comparable restaurant nearby.

Excellent meal ( again) Just need to be careful with wine service - fine to place wine in bucket away from the table but only if you remain fully vigilant - otherwise guests end up with an empty glass - as we did a couple of times - probably best to place by table ?

Food was good but portion size very small. Too expensive for what was served. Service pretty good. On the whole it was very disappointing, won’t be rushing back.

Had a lovely lunch, our server was very good. We felt welcome with our toddler. Great home made bread, delicious roast beef (one of the best i’ve ever had). Felt the celeriac or parsnip on the plate was way too salty but lovely Yorkies and a good pea puree. Desserts were delicious. Nice upscale option. You need beer on tap badly and £40 for 3 courses is a tad pricey, can get Sunday lunch at 1 star restaurants for that in London or less. Still had a good time but maybe better for a tasting menu in the evening.

New table lay out is so much better we didn’t feel so cramped. Much more relaxed evening from our last visit dispute the restaurant being equally as busy. A Wonderful waiter as well highly recommended thank you the old bank team

Glad to try out this new restaurant for lunch. The set menu choices were good and I really enjoyed the venison carpaccio followed by plaice. The dessert soufflé which we shared was delicious!! I will bring my family for a weekend meal in the near future.

A really excellent meal, generous portions of very fine quality, served in a well-converted building in the centre of Westerham. the set lunch at £40 for three courses was really excellent value. Staff friendly (although perhaps not necessary to point at each item of food on the plate during the explanation!). Highly recommended!

We really appreciated having the table we requested and the good quality wine list at sensible prices. Food quality, flavours and presentation were top drawer as was service from the knowledgeble and friendly front of house team. Perhaps a little more choice or churn on the menu may be beneficial going forward We will be back again soon.
