With its brilliant white exterior, crystal-clear windows and dazzling coin-shaped sign, you know you are in for a sterling dining experience before you even enter The Bank. As the name indicates, the building used to house a bank, and the eatery certainly takes note from its predecessor, offering fine cuisine at excellent value for money. The set lunch menu is particularly economical whilst offering the innovation for which The Bank is known - a great choice is the 'Trilogy' menu, which offers meals consisting of three dishes centred around chicken, beef, prawns or vegetables, all from just £6.95.

Whilst The Bank is relaxed enough for simply enjoying a quick bite with a coffee or beer, it is best to indulge in dinner accompanied by fine wine and good conversation. A perfect seafood starter is the tiger prawn, lobster and salmon tart in a lemon and chive cream; the petit beef Wellington aside deep-fried parsnip in a thyme jus is an equally decadent way to begin. The deliciousness only intensifies as you move on to the main course, with delightful dishes including seared calf's liver seated on a truffle mash tower with bacon and onions, and chargrilled breast of chicken in a pool of wild mushroom sauce. Rather reassuringly for a fine-dining restaurant, all the meals are generous and accompanied by a pretty selection of carefully prepared vegetables - so your hunger is sure to be as satisfied as your tastebuds.

You may think you cannot manage another bite by the time dessert comes, but glance at the menu and your mouth will be watering for something sweet - the warm Dutch apple strudel with vanilla ice cream is simply to die for.

The Bank also offers a range of private-dining options, as well as some fabulous and fun extras such as a seafood platter, chocolate fountain or even a croquembouche. With so much on offer, delivered with perfect hospitality, you are sure to leave The Bank feeling like a million dollars
