Just got back from this restaurant today as went to celebrate my mum in law's birthday who lives near there. The decor is lovely, service excellent and delicious food! Whilst waiting for food, small pieces of bread was served with a yummy feta and cream cheese dip. I ordered a mixed grill and surprisingly exceeded my expectations. My daughter's kids... More

Such a wonderful place that I had to write a review! This place is honestly one of my favourite place to go. I've been coming to the The banc for the past three years on a weekly basis. It's such chilled out atmosphere and the food is absolutely brilliant. However, the main reason I always come back is the service.... More

Nice food. Nice staff. Nice menu. Decor is also really nice. Price is good value. Ordered burger and salmon. Food came quickly and was very tasty. Wine was nice and only 5 pounds. Would return.

Great atmosphere, great service, great menu and burger, great shisha and selection of flavours to choose from, great experience. I came around 6.30pm and the back shisha area quickly became busy so clearly a popular spot. For drivers, there are pay n' displays nearby which becomes free after 6.30pm (weekdays).

Description
Fabio and Jan opened the doors of The Banc in 2011 - reclaiming it's status on West Green Road (it used to be a former Barclays Bank), which inspired the restaurants name and renovating it with love and care to add some much needed pizazz to the area.

A Burger & Steakhouse Restaurant with a touch of fine dinning and a labour of love for two young men, two local boys who went to the local school opposite the restaurant and decided to give something back to their community.
Beautifully layout out over 2 floors, The Banc has an opened kitchen, contemporary decoration with hints of pearl white and red walls on one level and a black and white theme on the upper level which is superbly decadent and romantic.

Fabio & Jan pride themselves on fabulous fresh cooked food, friendly, passionate and personal service. You will always see them either at the restaurant or outdoor lounge entertaining their guests.

At The Banc the freshest produce, fish and matured meat are combined with the highest quality ingredients in order to create mouth watering dishes with unique presentation. With such fascinating dishes there is also a credible wine list and home-made desserts.

We welcome your visit and hope to earn your repeated custom.

Fabio & Jan
