My friend and I visited this week for cocktails, for a wednesday night we were pleasantly surprised there were a few people in there and was a great atmosphere. We ordered many different cocktails while we were there, the girl who served us was the same throughout, she was so friendly and profession. Made an awesome Pink 75 which has... More

Food absolutely delicious and unconventional - I enjoyed salmon on mash with wasabi, really lovely. Atmosphere like a bar, modern but wood with the grain showing (all beautifully varnished, no rough edges). We came because our daughter has performed (singing) here a few times and said the smells are very good, and having tasted both food and atmosphere,we'll be back

4 and a half years ago we stumbled across this pub on holiday, we fell in love with the skittles cocktails and vowed to come back as we recently did. My husband was delighted when he asked about the skittles cocktail ( made 4 and a half years ago) although it wasn't still on the menu the bar staff were... More

We went here for lunch. It gets very, very busy. Lots of children, parties etc. The menu is good and food is reasonable. The service was quite slow as there was limited staff with lots of customers!

Going on the lash in town gets a bit old when you've got kids so I wasn't really looking forward to a few drinks in the Banyan before a mates birthday meal. However, it was surprisingly good. It was easy to get served and I have absolutely no bar presence. The staff were friendly, attentive and helpful!?! To a normal... More

Arrived at a busy lunchtime service. No tables available but had a drink at the bar and names put on the list. A table became available that we liked and it was set up quickly for us. You have 2 choices with regards to ordering. You can open up a tab or just order at the bar. Menu choice was... More

We love the Banyan for its friendly service, competitive prices and great atmosphere. Between 5&8pm is a good time to take advantage of their cocktail and Gin offers. We could honestly spend our whole night in this bar

Thank Bugner D
