Came to The Bank having seen a number of good reviews and we weren’t disappointed. We shared a flatbread to start which was tasty and came quickly. We then had a burger and the tandoori steak which were both well cooked and good portion sizes....More

Went twice during May, once for Saturday dinner and once for Sunday lunch. Unfortunately won’t be a third time which is a pity as we would like to support local businesses rather than soulless chains like Nando’s, Prezzo etc. However the service is so poor...More

My friend and I ordered a gin and slimline which promptly came but then were ignored until we called a waitress over. The man in charge seemed to be chatting and not focussed on customers at all. We ordered and the food was very basic....More

We have owned and operated 294 cafe & bistro, we then moved to 616 Bury rd and opened as The Bank café, bar & grill. We traded there for 2 and a half years growing into a more high end casual eatery. Our reputation has grown from strength to strength and we have remained in the top 3 restaurants in Bolton during this time. We have now moved into the town centre in the new Vaults dining area of The Market Place shopping centre. We hope to be here for a long time to come.
