We visited tonight & has a fabulous meal. The lady who looked after us Kate was amazing and nothing was too much trouble. Staff were so friendly. The food was fantastic. Would definitely recommend a visit. Very reasonable too - so much choice on menu.

The Bank Bar & Bistro is an excellent place to eat and drink in Newry (even on mondays when many other restaurants are closed. I had their signature drink, clams and mussels in chily lime butter and enjoyed it very much.

As the name might suggest, this venue was once a bank, but don't imagine a transformed local branch of Northern Bank this is a grand, towering building with ornate ceilings and has been restored to its former glory, encompassing some original features, and with the original bank vault located behind the bar, it gives a very unique style and decadence.Its history that props up the bar here at, The Bank - quite literally. These days, it's well worth investing some time in a bar where you can bank on a friendly welcome, good company and a fine pint. The Bank Bar attracts a loyal band of regulars as well as a city-centre mix of shoppers, passers by and students, many of them lured in by the promise of good food, good music and great times, and at the Bank Bar we do not disappoint. Situated in Newry's Town Centre, just 5 minutes' walk away from the main shopping area, you can experience fine dining in a lavish yet relaxed and comfortable setting, whether it's a quick lunch away from the office, socialising with a group of friends, cocktails with the girls, craft beers with the lads, an intimate celebration or even just calling in for a coffee. At The Bank Bar & Bistro, you're more than welcome
