    I have edited the post including a picture to visualize what I meant. I hope it helps. Thank you :)

    I would say, in BE, "The pub is diagonally across the road from the bank". :)
    I can see there is no specific preposition but diagonally across the road seems to be exactly what I was looking for. Thank you :)

    I would say that, too, in AE. Or maybe, "It's across the street and down a little ways."
    ''.....and down a little ways" sounds so casual and practical, too. To me, it feels like a phrase that would fit better in casually spoken English. Thank you :)

    Yes, that's definitely a casual, everyday way to say it to someone where there's no need for formality.
