It is just such a shame that there is no way in hell any bank would ever do it.
Perhaps the closest to even try was the first newly launched high street (main street) bank in the UK for a century: Metrobank. However the innovation stretched as far as printing you a new bank card then and there (rather than 5 working days through the mail) and water for your dog (which obviously you would be walking through the idyllic green spaces surrounding the cement desert that is Holborn).
