March 2018 NEWSLETTER

Thank you

The Old Bank has so much to share with you since our last newsletter in August 2017. We have much to be thankful for and we are. With loyal support of our accommodation and more recently of the dining room we are pleased to report steady growth in both areas. As a further result of your support and wonderful reviews we have been awarded by booking.com an Excellence Award, hold the number one position in our area with Trip Advisor and were a finalist in the Small Business Awards.

The responsibility now sits with us to maintain the high standard that our guests expect and deserve. 

Since Opening the Dining Room

Opening our beautiful dining room independently of accommodation was our next step towards giving more locals and visitors the opportunity to view our restoration. We are now comfortable serving seasonal, farm to plate Southern Highlands food to our guests and with this style of cuisine we mark a point of difference with modern Australian food that we mostly find on offer in the Highlands.

Indeed, as we move into the cooler months fireside dining with dishes like stuffed boned quail, beef wellington, rich saucy puddings and desserts temp even the most pious amongst us.

In order to help raise awareness that you can dine at the Old Bank Dining Room it will be launched shortly with the brand name The Vault Dining Room

As a result of our policy to never overcrowd the dinning room we find we are disappointing some by not being able to take their booking for special events due to being fully booked well prior to the event. To try and relieve this disappointment we have listed all the special events we will be holding at The Vault Dining Room over 2018. In addition to those events listed below we will offer a series of dinners themed on famous films, with beautiful musical scores and based on food and people throughout history. A classic example of this is Teena’s and my own favorite “Babette’s Feast” a rich tapestry of characters, music and of course the “feast”. The dates for these special events will be posted on both our website and Facebook page.

We at the Old Bank limit our seating to give our guests a true dining experience. To avoid disappointment please make your reservation well in advance for these special occasions by phoning 02 4872 4496. Accommodation/dining packages available:

Look for Henry around the Highlands reminding us all the The Old Bank is OPEN for accommodation and Dining! Please phone 48724496 with your booking or enquiry.

 

Thank you again for your ongoing support of the Old Bank. 


 

Best wishes,
