1095 Restaurants near Bank London

We found 1095 restaurants within 1 miles 1 miles of Bank London

Until the late 1990s, the City of London was pretty much a no-go area for serious foodies. Sure, there were wine bars aplenty and a handful of high-end lunch venues for client entertaining. But for anything in the slightest bit contemporary, fashionable or fun, Square Mile diners had to take their expense accounts to the West End. 

How things have changed. Today the City, and in particular Bank, is home to some of the most cutting-edge restaurants in London, located in some of the most dramatic settings. From the high-end thrills of skyscraper dining and haute-cuisine sophistication to more affordable sharing plates of tapas and dim-sum. Whether it’s for a quick and nutritious lunch with colleagues, or a long boozy affair entertaining clients, there is such a plethora of restaurants in Bank to choose from that you really needn’t go back to the same place twice.

That said, we are sure you’ll find some firm favourites that keep enticing you back with their appealing set lunch menus or post-work happy hours. You’ll find plenty of our gold listed restaurants in this area too - from the dizzy heights of classic Coq d’Argent with its gorgeous rooftop terrace overlooking the City, or the warming spices of Cinnamon Kitchen City with its high-end modern Indian cuisine and lively open kitchen. Elsewhere for no frills fine-dining Lyle’s is a surefire hit with its stripped back interiors and menu of fresh, seasonal small plates that won’t break the bank.

We appreciate that with so many places to choose from it can be a time consuming, not to mention somewhat overwhelming task trying to decide where to eat especially with the added corporate pressure of trying to impress colleagues and clients. To aid the process we’ve done a lot of the hard work for you, narrowing it down to our favourite spots in the vicinity with all the crucial details you need to know. Whatever your budget or taste, SquareMeal is here to help, with a selection of the best restaurants for every occasion. Read on for our pick of the best restaurants Bank has to offer.
