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.

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! Will be back - good food and nice location visited Banker on 19 Jun 2017

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. visited Banker on 02 May 2017

no complaints about the venue, just how i was met when i went to the bar to reclaim the deposit. whoever served me was really dismissive and offhand. i asked if i could buy wine, instead of having the money back on my card and i was just handed the cash back..... not very friendly at all visited Banker on 20 Apr 2017

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. visited Banker on 04 Apr 2017

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 03 Feb 2017

Hi, We have been going to "The Banker" for many a good year and we have nothing but high praise for it. Great friendly staff, who always welcome you with a big warm smile. As for the food, we attended again for our Xmas lunch, basically because it has been the best year on year without fail. The standard is set with the everyday lunches, well prepared, well cooked good dishes which are always great tasting. Derek visited Banker on 12 Dec 2016

we had a great evening thanks. the area for playing pool with a group and the area being closed off for us is fantastic. the staff are helpful and friendly. the only downside is that this is not the best pint of fullers pride in the world and it never has been here. it's only average. as a guide stick, the pride at the crown in islington is much better. visited Banker on 23 Nov 2016

We are very sorry to hear that our London pride wasn't to standard, we are always striving to serve the best ales and hopefully it will be better for you next time. Regards Beth Events Coordinator
