user reviews of Bank Corner, Alsager

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Another old review - been here a few times though

I have to admit that on previous visits to Alsager, I had ignored this continental style cafe-bar in favour of the more traditional establishments in the vicinity. It may have had something to do with the CAMRA Whatpub site saying there was only 1 real ale available. However, a few months ago I popped in (with the local CAMRA chairman !), and was pleasantly surprised to find 4 cask ales on tap. Therefore I resolved to visit again, and sample the food – which I did today.

On entering through the (very wide) main doors, the bar is on the left and very long. The building is open-plan, but clever use of varied levels means it is divided into several areas. Unfortunately, unless you sit by the windows the lighting is rather dim – meaning I couldn’t read my paper.

As previously stated, there were 4 handpumps – though on this occasion one had run out. I tried the Black Heart Stout from Salopian – and very nice it was too ! The other ales were from Weetwood and Lees.

On looking at the menu, the first thing I realised was that this place is in the same ownership as Alberts Corner in Crewe. This is because the menu layout is exactly the same – several separate sheets including mains, light bites, breakfast and “afters”, all of differing sizes so they display as a sequence when placed in the holders on the tables.

Unfortunately, whilst the beer is the same prices as Alberts (£3 a pint), the food is considerably more expensive ! I went for the first item on the Lite Bites menu – the steak & onion ciabatta (£8.20), which surprisingly had a number of “options”. And it was very nice as well, certainly a very large bite in my opinion ! Only complaint was that it came in the weird shaped dish that was really too small for it, so for the first few mouthfuls I had to be careful not to spill it all over the table !

Finally, a mention for possibly the most enthusiastic bar staff I have ever met !

7/10 – definitely one to keep an eye on. Probably the best place in town for food.
