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?

When you eat at The Bank Tavern, you will be presented with a menu that mixes elements of traditional pub classics combined with an eclectic mix of contemporary dishes and flavours from around the world.


We have argubly one of the best pub burgers in Bristol, and on Sundays you will find a menu that would not be out of place at a fine dining establishment all served up with a down to earth demeanour.

Sunday Roasts

Our legendary roasts have been the talk of the town for several years now and we were crowned the home of Bristol’s best Sunday Lunch at the Observer Food Monthly Awards 2019!

Serving from 12pm every Sunday, our roasts are plentiful and all ingredients sourced locally from trusted suppliers in and around Bristol. We also offer vegetarian options, as well as our classic meat offerings.


Please note that children and high chairs count as a seat when booking. We are a small venue and struggle to accommodate unexpected extra guests.
