Description

The Banker, situated just on the north bank of The Thames between Southwark Bridge and London Bridge, is a brilliant drinking den commanding great views of the river.

The riverside pub, which is just a short walk from Bank and Cannon Street tube stations, serves a great selection of traditional British grub, alongside a choice drinks menu. The Banker's location and tranquil setting results in the ideal destination for after work drinks or a calm lunch during a busy working week. And for those with a competitive rush and like pubs with games, there are pool tables and quiz machines.

The food menu changes daily and is packed with an array of dining options. There is a rotisserie that helps create authentic British dishes and the sharing platters allows guests to have a more informal eating experience with friends. Whatever you choose to feast on, it's all cooked fresh to order, crafted from the very best ingredients around. Fine wines, real ales, cocktails, spirits - you name it, they've got it. The beer is Cask Marque approved, and The Banker is featured in the Good Beer guide. If you're searching for private function hire near London Bridge then The Banker is the answer - with three great function rooms, perfect for parties.

I Booked the “games room” section of The Banker” for a private party as I really like the fact that this comes with the use of a pool table. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the BBQ sharing platters ordered were delicious and good value for money. I have used the banker a couple of times before for similar events and have never been disappointed. Service is always good and The ambience is relaxed and friendly . Will certainly visit The Banker again and would highly recommend to anyone. Visited Banker on 2017-12-29

We had a great evening at The Banker! Table just by the window with a view over the river. Beer quality was excellent and the food was good as well. Service was quick and friendly (although being charged £1 extra for some additional pitta bread with the dips when the initial quantity was hugely insufficient seemed a bit mean).

Had a great night at The Banker, was a work social. We had a lovely area which included the pool table which was a bonus! Food, drinks and atmosphere all great.

Thank you so much for your feedback. Apologies for any confusion. Our goal is to always accomodate the needs of our guests the best that we can to satisfy everyone's needs.

Food was lovely - we had the sandwiches, they arrived very quickly and the waiter was very attentive. Hot day so the outside area was busy - the only criticism I had was that the umbrellas were not opened to shade the area - it was over 30 degrees - when people tried to put them up others diners moaned!

Dear Staff at The Banker, I have been meaning to contact you to thank you all, so much, for your help, understanding and thoughtfulness regarding my husband, Ray, when we had lunch with our Family, visiting from Australia. Ray has P.D., ( Parkinson's ), is wheelchair dependant and going out for a meal can often be difficult. From the moment we entered The Banker, the very professional and attentive Staff made us feel so welcome. They were intent on doing their best with seating for Ray and insistent that nothing was too much trouble. If I knew all their names, I would mention them individually. Facilities, such as disabled toilet, were good and the food was terrific. Thankyou, once again, for making our visit such an enjoyable one. Kind Regards, Lindy Swinfield.

Very good overall. We had reserved a space for a group meeting and had a nice little zone overlooking the river. Fullers had sent me a voucher for a free drink, but it didn't work on their system, which was a little annoying, but mainly because the bar staff really tried to make it work, and were apologetic that it wouldn't. I didn't particularly mind not getting a free drink, but it seemed a shame to have the staff put on the spot like that. Anyway, that aside it was a good night and I'd reccomend this pub.

The visit to the Banker was as usual very good, the real ale is always well kept well and the food was excellent, the only comment I would have to make is sometimes with the background music, most of the people were just talking not really listening to the music, which was a bit loud, maybe just my age, but I felt that some people were put off by this. otherwise myself and my friends had a pleasant evening and are planning to return later this month, Visited Banker on 2017-02-03
