I have just had a very disappointing Sunday Roast, cold plates, cold hard roast potatoes, uncooked Yorkshire puddings and a ridiculously silly amount of beef served with chicken gravy. No consistency between the amount of food served on the plates of the others in my...More

Very slow service in a restaurant that wasn’t that busy. We waited nearly 30 minutes for our food, and when it came it was very average at best. The service just seemed to lack something. I’d much prefer to write a nice review but there...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.
