We booked a table for evening dinner on Good Friday, and so glad we did. We both had the fillet steak and we agreed it was one of the best we'd had for a long time. Having eaten many similar dishes whilst in London, we'd happily say that the Old Bank holds its own against these. One of us had... More

Four of us had a delicious meal at the Old Bank a couple of nights ago, each choosing a different meal. All agreed that the food was of a really high standard, accompanied by a very good, reasonably priced bottle of merlot. There are plenty of choices of meals for children within the menu so it is very family orientated... More

Hearty food and lots of it with friendly staff and very pleasant, relaxed surroundings. A great place for kids especially since we heard about fancy dress options ( as well as free food) for kids on Sunday's soon. Even more fun for kids and good to watch too. Fantastic value.

Visited last night very disappointed, three of us went in and we got pointed to which table to sit at, the VERY MISERABLE waiter them came over with the menu's and then just left us sitting there for at least 10 mins not even asking us if we would like a drink! The place wasn't even busy 4/5 tables max,... More

Dear Cheesy, Many thanks for your review. I really appreciated your compliments on the food, thank you. I totally agree with you that service is a key element of the restaurant experience and on Monday night we clearly failed. Many, many apologies. I know this does not excuse it, but the duty manager was unwell but decided to press on... More

Very good menu choice, not extensive but something for everyone. Excellent steak and one of the best house salad dressings I've had in years. Friendly and helpful service. Definitely worth a visit.

Having recently moved to Brighton, I struggled to find a nice place to bring my family for Mothers day. I asked some friends who recommended the 'place with the best roast' as they described it. We phoned in to book a table quite at the last minute but they managed to squeeze us in. When we got there the restaurant... More

Very disappointed! After being told roasts were available, they actually weren't so I had chicken fajitas- not that there was much chicken though! The tortillas were cut up into small triangle shapes..... Couldn't really figure out how I was supposed to use them! The meal was pretty tasteless! Such a shame! My partner had a T bone steak, which was... More
