The Bank is always a jumping place. With many different nooks there is always somewhere to suit everyone. We like the craft beer bar at the back - Uncle Hops. It has been outfitted in a quirky manner as befits Newtown & has an outside area off it. The beer on tap selection varies & wasn't quite up to scratch... More

A really nice lunch of pub food. One of the best seafood baskets we have ever eaten. Good range of beers on tap, with Coopers (good Pale Ale).

The Bank Hotel is right in the heart of Newtown and only 50 metres from the train station! Having undergone renovations the hotel/bar has multiple levels, both inside and outside. The is a great restaurant as well which serves really good bar food. A recommended visit for locals or visitors to Newtown alike.

Looking around for a place to catch up with friends on a Sunday, we decided to try the downstairs beer garden of The Bank Hotel. They have lifted their game in recent times. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is above average. We selected the corn fritters, pizza and chicken wings, washed down with an acceptable French... More

We hadn't been to The Bank for a couple of years, and last time it was a Thai restaurant, so now it's more like regular pub food, except for the lack of a Chicken Parmie. I had the Grainge Rump, and it was good, although I never figured out what Grainge had to do with it. Others had Pulled Pork... More

The Bank Hotel has long been a haunt of the 'sexually diverse' creatures of Newtown. It is mostly popular with female same-sex-attracted people - this makes it dangerous on Wednesday nights because you are liable to be assaulted within the premises. The Bank serves mocktails and shabby draft beer on tap.

We visited the Bank & we're not disappointed! The food was terrific & outdoor eating area had great atmosphere. Whilst there are many eateries in the area this is one we would definitely go back to!

Nearly every time I meet up with friends in Newtown we either start the night at the Bank or we end it here. Delicious and affordable cocktail jugs, yummy pizza to share and lovely ambiance. If you're looking for a quiet spot, this isn't it, it's always packed but you can usually find a table downstairs in the beer garden.
