About The Bank Restaurant & Bar

The Bank is a premier dining destination just over the bridge and down Durham Rd from central Newcastle and Gateshead. But the locals of Lowfell may not want too many people finding about their favourite spot, housed in a beautiful old stone building that has stood since 1840, formerly housing the local bank. This is where the Bank gets its name, and the surrounding regions are where the Bank gets its phenomenal 21-day-aged steaks, with prime beef provided by farmers across Durham, Cumbria and Northumberland. Where the rest of the inspiration comes from for this amazing menu is a mystery - occasionally it’s from pub tradition, like a slow-braised steak and ale pie; sometimes it’s from international flavours, like Asian-infused tian of quinoa; and often it could be something plucked from the imagination - try the watermelon and chilli iced parfait and you will be thankful for human ingenuity. The Bank gets cosy quickly, so make sure to book a table if you want the full experience!

The food and service were terrific, me and my girlfriend got beef dinner served to our liking (well/medium) desserts were lush too. Will defo come back and would strongly recommend. Also the building is very grand and you feel like your in town not the fell.

Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant. Good menu choice but the starters were over priced. 5 small prawns and nothing else for £9 was a rip off. Main course and dessert good. Service was average. Had to ask what the soup was and had to ask to order as no one came to us. Overall enjoyed the experience and would return

I visited The Bank with friends, straight from work on Wednesday 29/06. The Services was a little slow, however, we didn’t mind as when the food arrived it was gorgeous.

Great service, good choice of starters and drinks. The choice of mains could have been better. Certain things unavailable which is surprising for early evening. Meals arrived beautifully presented and were taaty.

I made an online booking but when we attended they had no record. There was a party upstairs so we sat in the bar which was very quiet and we enjoyed our meal.

Lovely cocktails and attentive service. Food clearly freshly cooked- hot- and well presented. Steak was very good and cooked rare as my friend requested. Very nice.
