This is everything a good restaurant should be. Welcoming staff, great food and lovely surroundings. Iced water brought to the table as soon as we were seated (always goes down well with me!), friendly but unobtrusive staff and the food... Ox cheek with dauphinoise potatoes and kale was truly wonderful, and my friends assured me their meals were just as...

Nothing was too much trouble for the excellent staff at Bank House, from big to small requests, and their welcome made all the difference to our family weekend. We had two big dinners and all the details were taken care of. The rooms (we used 6) were wonderful, especially the fabulous larger Nell's Room which looked directly out over the...

Was a miserable wet day. We popped in on the off chance. Nice pint of Southwold bitter a glass of Sauvignon and the sea food platter to share. Absolutely bang on. Service was efficient, had lovely table for two. No TV, No music, just the sound of people. We shall return!

We've just returned from a short stay at the beautiful Bank House Hotel. The rooms were stunning, beautifully decorated, comfortable bed, spacious and excellent attention to detail. We were in the Captains Room with a gorgeous huge bath in the room, a luxurious treat! We enjoyed drinks in the bar afternoon and late evening, both times the staff were attentive,...

Set near the old customs house, the lovely hotel retains many of the original features from the buildings several hundred years of history. Each room is unique - we were in the TV room and it was spacious, beautifully done out and comfortable.

We were seated in the back room (think the billiards room) having had our booking forgotten about. Each stage in the process took a long time as no staff seemed to visit the room to check. I ordered a soup but asked to have it as my main course with everyone else, and was told this wasn't a problem. I...

Visited here for a business lunch with clients. The table was booked for 12.30 just before a big Christmas party. We arrived about 12.45 but we're not rushed through. We were advised that we needed to get our order in quick to avoid a long delay which we did. I had the soup of the day which was leek and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"Relaxed atmosphere, contemporary style" Bank House is a unique Grade II * listed 11 bedroom Georgian town house hotel, set on the quay side in the heart of the historic and business areas of King’s Lynn, and a step away from the renowned Corn Exchange theatre and Arts Centre. Recently renovated to bring an eclectic flourish to the building’s Georgian grandeur, Bank House is now King’s Lynn’s most exciting and inviting place to eat, drink and stay. Our stunning bedrooms are each individually decorated and immensely comfortable. We love food at Bank House! Our menu offers modern brasserie food, using top quality fresh ingredients and taking full advantage of the wonderful produce of the area in season. Our elegant Bar, once the bank manager's office, is open all day. Teas, coffees and delicious home made cakes are available throughout the day, with the Bank House tea of sandwiches, scones and cakes served during the afternoon. We have a number of private rooms available for meetings and conferences, private dinners, parties and weddings, large or small, and can tailor our catering to suit your exact requirements and budget. Wi-fi internet is available throughout. Why not visit our older sister, The Rose & Crown, Snettisham? ... more   less
