If we had a philosophy (we don’t - we’re far too relaxed to maintain one of those) it would be to ask of every dish; is it seasonal? Is it local? If not, why not? Next we ask is this going to make a cracking lunch for someone and will they go out of their way to come back for more?

If you choose to eat at The Bank Tavern you will be presented with a menu that holds elements of pub tradition combined with a rather eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional dishes from around the world. We are responsible for perhaps the best burger in Bristol and every Sunday you will find a menu that would not be out of place at a fine dining establishment but served up with a down to earth demeanour.

We never pay anyone to do something that we can do better ourselves. This is why you will find us baking bread, curing ham and filling sausages whilst other chefs are still in bed (except for hotel breakfast chefs… those guys start at something stupid like 3 a.m. ) If you’re in a rush simply pick what you want from our menu and tell us what time you’ll be in. We’ll be more than happy to accommodate you!
