Your Questions Covered

Now pay attention!

Can I bring my dog/dogs?

Yes, we love dogs! In fact we prefer them to humans. You’ll find anchor points around your seats to tie their leads off, and we have a stash of bowls for water. If the person behind the bar fails to offer you a bowl in the first instance, shout them down and make the apologies to the dog/dogs directly.

Can I bring my child/children?

Only if they’re fun! We’re not sure on the metric for that one, so we’ll get back to you! You’ll find anchor points around your seats to tie their leads off, and we have a stash of bowls for water. There is also a baby changing station in the ladies, which males may use, obvs, they need to have a baby with them… We also have high chairs, well two. Also we request that children leave the pub by 9pm as after this time we can’t guarantee someone will not get naked and you don’t want to have to explain to them what they may have seen.

Vegans, Gluten intolerance and other fussy eaters…

We endeavour to accommodate everyone and make them feel welcome, yes even vegans! Whilst items on the menu might only say suitable for vegetarian, in most cases we may be able to modify them for vegans. Gluten intolerance may be a bit tricky, but ask the person behind the bar. FYI, the only thing you can’t eat on our Sunday lunch is the Yorkshire pudding and the creamed leaks if you have a Gluten intolerance. If you’re still unsure drop us an email, because I’m not gonna lie, if you’re a vegan that is intolerant to onion/onion powder we will struggle.

What time is the kitchen open until?

An obvious one you’d think, as we think it’s clearly displayed, but we get asked it enough to warrant a mention here. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the pub, and ultimately being a drinkers pub we only offer a lunchtime menu. Although we do host a number of events and pop ups, so keep your eye open for those, as they’re cracking!

Do I need to book at table for Sunday Lunch?

Yes…..

Disabled Access?

The pub is older than Australia, well obviously not, but it was built before we discovered it! As such the pub doesn’t lend itself well to less abled guests. That said the pub is pretty much on one level, baring a single slight step to get in the side door, and another step to access the toilet at the other end of the pub. Unfortunately, the toilet isn’t adapted owing to its size. If we can help in any way to accommodate you, we will! If you’re unsure drop us an email beforehand and we will go through some options.

Do you show sport?

We currently subscribe to BT Sport, mainly because I like the rugby. If it’s on terrestrial TV or BT Sport ask behind the bar and we may put it on. Reasons for not showing it, may include but are not limited to, ‘we have music on, watch the band instead’ ‘Nascar is a bit too niche’ or ‘I don’t know how to use the projector’… And yes, you do need to book a table to watch England during the Six Nations.

Our music policy…

Till viss utsträckning och under de tystare timmarna så är du välkommen att föreslå musikval. Ifall du är en “local” så har du förmodligen redan märkt av en viss ökning av ABBA-musik. Detta på grund av vår nya svenska bartender, du är mer än välkommen att tortera honom. Detta är lättast gjort genom att föreslå ABBA-låtar, prata om IKEA och påminna honom om att han ser ut som Harry Potter. Vi önskar dig ett trevligt besök i The Bank Tavern.

I’d like to do a gig at your pub?...

First up, if you have an agent, we won’t be able to afford you! The pub is the size of a postage stamp and although we like getting cosy, we’d never get enough people in to make it worth your while. Second, we are a pub, we don’t charge entry. So again, your fee needs to reflect that we’ll only be making over the bar and you’re probably not gonna bring down as many friends as you said you would. If none of that has put you off, drop us an email, we have some equipment in situ, but we can discuss any short comings over email.
