    Lovely ambience to this restaurant, in an old bank! Oak panelling...lace table cloths...bone china! The earl grey tea was good, seved in a china teapot. Lovely homemade cakes. But an added interest are the display cabinets downstairs, exhibiting woodcraft, jewellery etc.Then upstairs a space is given over to craft, sculptures, fashion, jewellery etc from these and other local craftspeople. All are on sale and an ideal browse after a good cup of tea!

    We happened across The Old Bank Tearoom by chance. Fabulous lay out with embroidered table cloths, floral china and vintage tables and chairs. Great selection of cakes including several home made gluten free options. Really good service and fantastic ambience! Highly recommended!

    My friend and I wanted a long overdue catch up and booked afternoon tea at the Old Bank in Bungay. It was wonderful! Everything fresh and home made. The teapot was topped up at intervals, while we relaxed and chatted. The owners were attentive and friendly and overall our visit was most enjoyable.

    Popped in this morning and enjoyed the freshly baked cheese scone and pot of coffee. Wonderful surroundings of a bygone era. Friendly and pleasant staff. Well worth a visit!

    Nice little cafe. Friendly staff. Enjoyed a cream tea scone and a drink. Liked the quirky feel of the place, although it could benefit from some softer lighting.

    We took our daughter-in-out for lunch to celebrate the start of the holidays at the school where she works. The Old Bank was recommended to us by a friend who had been there.

    Lovely old building, very pleasant service. Cakes to die for. The highlight was to visit the basement to see the original old bank vault.

    Wandered in off the street at midday and managed to get a table for four. We all had the cream tea, 2 had the strawberry cream tea with coffee and 2 had the savoury cream tea. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Beautifully appointed with vintage linens, dishes & tableware, afternoon tea is quite an event. Finger sandwiches, crisps, large scones, various cakes, jam, butter, clotted cream- generous portions elegantly served. Yum! Friendly and courteous service. Locally made crafts upstairs and a bank vault downstairs.

    A real 1920s style tea room. Very well decorated and with great taste down to the last detail. Friendly and helpful people. Very good selection of food, including vegan. Nothing too much trouble. Sure if they have the ingrediants available they will cook it for you. A must if you are in the area

    We were led to The Old Bank Tearoom by TripAdvisor and what a find. This is the quintessential tearoom complete with very friendly, efficient service; vintage tablecloths, china and cutlery; delicious food and quirky surroundings. My friend asked for gluten free bread and there was a choice - she opted for the generous cheese scone. I had a cheese and chutney sandwich, delicately served. Tea arrived in a china pot. It would have been rude to have turned down the opportunity of cake; my coffee and walnut was light, tasty and moreish. The Tearoom retains points of reference of the high street bank of old. The manager’s room has a table that could take eight for a private group; the strong room is downstairs and the former staff room upstairs is a gallery. If I could give The Old Bank Tearoom seven out of five I would! By the way - we were visiting Bungay specifically for Sew and So’s, a marvellous fabric shop nearby specialising in quilting fabrics. If you have an interest it’s a must and for us completed our visit to the delightful, friendly town of Bungay.

    Enjoyed a very filling afternoon tea with friends today. Great that there is a varied choice of sandwich fillings and that you can choose which filling you prefer and what type of bread you want. Thoroughly enjoyable

    My second visit, the being around two years ago. It was equally as good as the first time around. A great setting which works well with the vintage furniture and crockery. The background music fits the style of the place too. Afternoon tea was beautifully presented with great sandwiches, scones and generous portions of home made cake. Staff were extremely attentive. Would visit again.
