As the name might suggest, this pub was once a bank, but don't imagine a transformed local branch of HSBC: this is a grand, towering old building with ornate railings and colossal mirrors. The place is clearly geared up to serve a moneyed clientele; while it's essentially a Fuller's pub - London Pride and Discovery as standard - there are such strange offerings as a 'pie tasting plate' for an eye-watering £17 and racks of vintage wines. While the booze is high quality and the decor initially impressive, the atrium-style layout of the building gives you the nagging feeling that you're drinking in an airport departure lounge.
