We chose here on spur of moment as often walk past but never been in. Also found a two for one deal on the website. The food was ok - nothing excellent or exceptional. The steak was a little dry and arrived on a plate with a bowl of chips and nothing else - looked a bit unappetising and uninviting.... More

We had a very nice dinner on a Friday evening (so unfortunately no special offers!) Two people had the ribeye steak which was delicious and I had the chicken burger with guacamole and bacon, also very good. The desserts weren't quite up to scratch but service from Tom and Oz was friendly, helpful and very attentive and the atmosphere in... More

I'd been looking for a really good steak restaurant and a friend suggested The Old Bank so gave it a try. We went on a Thursday where you get second steak half price. The food was very nice and the service was excellent. It was quite expensive even with a half price steak. I felt a bit let down -... More

Dear guest, Firstly thank you very much for the extremely entertainingly written review. Sadly, your experience was not a happy one and for that I can only apologise. Having spoken to your waiter Orazio, I understand that he checked on the meal several times and was told that everything was satisfactory. It's not unusual for guests to remain silent over... More

We usually go here for a treat but we were disappointed with our most recent visit. The nachos were so broken we had to eat them with a spoon and the chips were quadruple or more - they were all crispy fat and no potato inside. The 10% service charge is automatically added to your bill - an indication to... More

Dear guest, It always upsets me when I read that a regular guest has had a disappointing experience. Many apologies. I have looked into the problem with the nachos and I'm afraid I can give you no sensible explanation for this .They are one of our best selling starters so I can only apologise for this aberration. We do double... More

we ordered the new chicken creole with chips and slaw. When it arrived the chicken looked and tasted like it had come out of the freezer straight into the microwave, slimey and slippery - although it had grid stripes on it, I've no idea how they got there! The chips were greasy, I didn't even try the slaw. The beer... More

Aksana G, General Manager at The Old Bank Steak & Ribs, responded to this review

Dear guest, I was very disappointed to read your review dated December 31 that you were very critical of our creole chicken, which I have to say is one of our most popular dishes. For the avoidance of doubt, we do not use microwaves in the kitchen. The bars on the chicken that you could not understand were the result... More

Visited the old bank steak house on the 16th December with my partner. We was greeted and seated as soon as we walked in, and was set in the mood by our waiter adding candles to our table! Our waiter Greg was very polite and helpful throughout our meal and made us feel at home! The steak was cooked beautifully... More

Great meal with the family. Steaks were cooked just right and the rack of ribs to go with them went down a treat. A walk out from the bustle of Brighton town centre which was really nice. A very attentive Tom front of house topped off our evening.
