This Grade II Listed former bank is one of the most imposing historic buildings on Lord Street. It is understood the Portland stone façade was built in a classical style, in the early 1920s, in the form of a temple portico with giant fluted ionic columns, richly ornamented architrave and bronze doors. The basement retains the bank strong rooms. The remainder of the building behind the façade is of more modern construction.
The premises were most recently utilised by a bar / food operator and remains fitted out and ready to trade to a high standard.
Internally the accommodation is centred around the larger former banking hall, which has a c.20ft ceiling height and feature glazed dome.
The layout is predominantly to open plan with bar, dining and kitchen areas provided together with additional covers to a mezzanine level overlooking the ground floor. In addition there are ancillary WC, staff and storage facilities including a substantial basement area, which provides pump & barrel storage together with further dry storage areas in what was formerly the bank's secure vault. However, the property would be suitable for alternative uses, subject to the necessary consents.
