Me & my mom like to do lunch. We especially like to do lunch when it’s sunny outside.
With Birmingham on our doorstep, there’s always a new favourite we become obsessed with. In steps Bank Restaurant & Bar.
Situated in the cosmopolitan surroundings of the popular Brindley Place, having sampled their cocktails many times before, (the bartenders encourage you to ask for ANYTHING. Don’t just pick off the menu. Fancy a Pina Colada? Then ask for it!), & with an impressive lunch menu tempting our tastebuds, we decided to head over there for an early lunch.
With its outdoor heating & seating area, we braved the British wind & grabbed a cocktail, sat outside & pretended we were on an episode of the Hills. I asked for a lychee martini (I’m obsessed with these!), & I was not disappointed! We had pre-booked our table for 1:30pm & was taken to our seats and seen to straight away. We were presented with a special lunch menu (1 course for £10, or 2 courses for £15) & given the specials & the normal extensive menu if we so wished to order from there.
We picked our wine (priorities!) & settled on the special lunch menu.
Almost immediately we were brought complimentary breads & olives for the table, which was a lovely touch.
I went for a fish themed afternoon & started with chilli squid with a noodle salad.
I then chose a main course of the salmon fishcakes with spinach.
From around 2pm, the restaurant was truly buzzing. There was a great atmosphere with everybody from cute couples, to larger family & friendship groups choosing to dine out here for lunch.
The food itself was outstanding. Service was quick & attentive, with everyone looking like they had just stepped out of a modelling agency.
With restaurants in Birmingham & Westminster, it really is a must when visiting Birmingham.
This special menu runs 7 days a week. 1 course for £10, or 2 courses for £15, it really does make for a fantastic afterwork venue, & an even greater weekend location. The menu runs on the following days:
Monday to Friday: 12pm – 7pm
Saturday & Sunday: 12pm – 5pm
So, if you’re in the Birmingham area & fancy a lunch with a touch of class & sophistication, Bank Restaurant & Bar is your place!

A two course lunch, with a bottle of white wine, two cocktails & service charge (included in your final bill), came to £65.00.
