I went with two colleagues, completely by chance, and had what I think is the best dinner I have had anywhere in a long time. Starting with the basket of delicious sourdough bread, things just got better from there. Everything was beautifully cooked and conceived,...More

We are a little, family-run seaside bistro and coffee shop in Snettisham, just off the coast and between King's Lynn and Hunstanton. We serve breakfast and lunch Wednesday-Sunday and dinner Thursday-Saturday. Our main aim is to offer delicious, homemade, fresh and imaginative food, sourced locally whenever possible. We hope, that The Old Bank will soon become your home away from home and that our little bistro will mean as much to you as it does to us...
