SquareMeal Review of Bank Westminster

Bronze Award

Bank is still going strong after all these years – thanks in part to its breezy, light-filled conservatory and Indian-themed courtyard, which engender a business-fuelled feel-good vibe that sweeps through the whole place on sunny days. Discussion-filled lunches take place over high-protein char-grilled steaks, chops, ribs and crustacea, although the global brasserie menu also touts everything from chilli squid and noodle salad, Thai fishcakes and tandoori chicken to smoked haddock with poached egg, lobster and chips or navarin of lamb. After that, trendy dessert cocktails and puds such as knickerbocker glory or Black Forest pavlova help sweeten any fine-tuned business deals. The best seats in the house are next to the floor-to-ceiling glass windows, which allow for a smooth transition to the leafy alfresco space. Meanwhile, the huge Zander bar gets rammed with post-work suits lured by the prospect of booze at relatively painless prices.

I don’t know how I’ve managed to miss Bank as I work about 5 minutes walk away, but somehow I have, at least until the other day, but having discovered it I’ll be going again. I went for lunch with a friend and we only had a main course and coffee each, so I feel a bit of a fraud writing a full review, but thought I should scribble a few words given I liked it and I’d like other people to discover it as well; even though its not perhaps somewhere you’d make a special trip to, but well worth the stroll down the road. The restaurant has a conservatory on the rear with views over a private courtyard and if you go on a sunny day, as we did, it feels really light and airy. The tables are decently spaced, with comfy chairs, so you don’t feel like you can steal the neighbours bread (or indeed hear their conversation) and staff are polite and efficient. We were also both amused by the selection of photographs of the Queen’s guards doing unusual activities – look out for the synchronised swimming in particular! Food is good rather than exceptional: I ate smoked haddock and leek risotto with a poached egg and credit to them for the risotto being the right texture (so often elsewhere it veers between rice pudding or dried out) and properly hot when it arrived, though it could have done with a slightly stronger and less ‘safe’ taste. Coffee was perfectly decent. Value for money? Just over £40 for 2 main courses, a bottle of water, 2 coffees and service, so fair enough really. It’s not amazing, but they’ll definitely be seeing me again, and around the Westminster area, that is a bit devoid of decent options, that’s not a bad recommendation.
