BANK

Elephant Bank is our Italian Restaurant on the Wirral, located in the heart of Neston, on the Cross. We have recently been named the Best Independent Pizzeria in the U.K.

The Bank is both modern and authentic, it is our relaxed Italian restaurant on the Wirral and in Cheshire,  located in the heart of Neston. We base our dishes on the classic Italian tastes, therefore, we are always looking for Italian ingredients that represent the sides of Italy that most local people may not know. Elephant Bank is characterised by traditional cuisine meeting modern Italian cuisine. As a result, on the menu you will find award-winning pizza, classic risottos, burgers and pastas. On the other hand, you will also find dishes on our specials board that our chefs use to create an unforgettable experience.
