I was lucky to be invited to the opening of the Old Bank, where I was going to get to sample some of their food. I set a date in my calendar and time slot and headed there.
On arrival I loved the welcome balloons outside, this was a great idea as it was very eye catching for the blogger event plus everyone walking past or driving past.
On entering I was greeted and told about the wee welcome snack.
This was a really nice touch, as while sampling it, we could look around and take pics etc
This was very nice and the drink was a mocktail which was perfect as I was driving today.
On entering I was very impressed with how it looked, it was bright, warm and had a nice cosy atmosphere to it.
It was much bigger inside than I thought it would be, and has a little side area with more seats to which is great.
I sat down and started taking pics and enjoying my nibbles.
At todays visit we were shown the menu, and had to choose a wee dish that caught our attention.
For me everything sounded good, and a few names sounded very interesting as I have never heard of them.
Small Plates £N/A tonight
Samosas and Pakoras. Accompanied with Old Bank sauce.
For me Pakora is normally my go to starter, so a samosa was a nice change…well yes I was getting both to try but you know what I mean.
On arrival they looked very nice, so it was now time to taste.
The samosa was very nice, had a nice crisp outside and a very nice filling.
The pakora was perfectly cooked, and with the dip it took it to another level…it was very nice.
Overall they were nice starters.
Onion Bhaji Naaniza
I have had Onion Bhaji’s before but never one with this name so I had to check it out and see what it was like.
On arrival this was not how I imagined it would look, but the smell was very very good coming from it and I couldnt wait to dig right in.
This was an interesting flavour, but a very nice one. It did and didn’t taste like an onion bhaji as there was something else coming through but I couldn’t put my finger on it…but it was very very tasty.
I could easily have this again!
Firstly a big thanks to the guys at the Old Bank for my invite, and as always the review you have just read is 100% honest and hasn’t been influenced in anyway.
Here was a very nice visit, I think it will do very well as it stands out from the rest of the restaurants etc nearby.
I will add here to my list to revisit and try some other dishes, so keep watching this space.
