King’s Lynn’s Bank House, once described as one of the finest houses in King’s Lynn, is an excellent example of a Grade II listed Georgian town house.
In the 1780's Joseph Gurney set up his first bank in Bank House and a dent is still visible in the wooden floor of the Counting House, now the front room of the Brasserie.
Over the front door stands a fine statue of Charles I. The statue is said to have arrived in a wheelbarrow looking for a home when its original home in Tuesday Market Place was demolished.
The house became offices for tax inspectors, lawyers and shipbrokers and after a time a beautiful private home, offering bed and breakfast. In 2007 Bank House came on the market and Jeannette and Anthony Goodrich, who already owned and ran The Rose & Crown in Snettisham couldn't resist the possibilities offered by both Bank House and King’s Lynn.
Now not only a fabulous venue on the waterfront for great food and drink in the most intimate surroundings, but also a place to stay with stylish bedrooms and, of course, now a must go to location for wonderful evenings of musical entertainment presented by JBGB Events.
