My Belly of Pork starter and Cod main course were both fantastic. There were four of us eating and we all agreed that the food, presentation and friendly service were all excellent. Best food we have had o In Norfolk.

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...
