You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Stoke Bishop Dental Centre

15 Druid Hill, Bristol BS9 1EW, UK – 0117 968 4888

I have been receiving treatment from Jay for about 18 months now, she is perfecting my smile. Since the beginning of my treatment I have found her very informative and professional, I now know so much about my own teeth and how to succeed with my treatment. I travel a 30 mile round trip to see Jay simply because of the attention to detail and the care I receive. I have now started seeing Dani for aesthetics and I wouldn't go anywhere else.

After numerous consultations to have my teeth straightened I decided to use Jay. She talked me through time scales and what to expect. The whole process took approx 9 months and I can honestly say I am thrilled with the results. Jay gave me feedback at every appointment. She is professional, friendly and reassuring. I would definitely recommend.

Wonderful Wonderful doctor couldn't praise her enough,

Shirehampton Group Practice

Pembroke Rd, Bristol, Shirehampton BS11 9SB, UK – 0117 916 2226

We went in this morning as soon as the surgery opened following a recommendation from 111 to be seen early. The receptionist advised the doctor would give us a call and invited us to sit in the waiting room. The doctor rang before we even had time to sit down and asked us to come straight in to his office. Thank you :)

Good range of services but hard to get an appointment

Helios Medical Centre

17 Stoke Hill, Bristol BS9 1JN, UK – 0117 962 6060

I have been with Helios since I came to Bristol in 1986 and it is a very special Medical Centre which I can only highly recommend. A friendly reception, a calm, welcoming atmosphere, I already find sitting in the waiting room and looking out into the garden a therapeutic experience. It is amazing that Helios can still offer such a patient centered and overall holistic approach and treatments for NHS patients in light of the cuts and difficulties health services have faced over the last years. Doctors can't read your mind, but they will always listen and respect you, take you and your problems seriously, will give you a professional, informed answer, pointing out all the options you have.

Beeta and her staff were lovely! We are from the U.S. so we had to communicate through email a lot prior to our visit. It couldn't have been easier. Florentina was extremely helpful and replied quickly to any questions. We were very impressed with their professionalism, gentleness, and kindness. We highly recommend this practice, especially for families with young kids!

BRILLIANT! Heidi and her girls are wonderful very friendly people, they are all great with the patients, very caring and great at their jobs. the best practice around by far. my daughter now has a stunning smile and now my son starts his treatment too (for the nest few years) it makes a difference with children when all staff are great. Would HIGHLY recommend Heidi and her girls to everyone. 10/10** every time :o) Debs H in Usk, South Wales

I used the Clifton branch when my hire car had a puncture whilst visiting Bristol. I contacted the branch on Saturday morning and they were able to accommodate a repair that morning. This meant there was very little disruption to our holiday. Very friendly service and would certainly recommend to others.

Neeshad Indian Restaurant & Takeaway

40 Westbury Ln, Bristol BS9 2PP, UK – 0117 968 8005

Best Indian I've had in Bristol! Top service, good price, fab favours and quick delivery. Can't beat it x

We were let down at the last minute by a nearby Indian restaurant. Neeshad took a booking for 14 people with 30 minutes notice. None of us had eaten there before and were skeptical. Absolutely fantastic food, friendly and quick service with extremely reasonable prices. Cannot recommend enough.

Rajgate Tandoori

5 Shirehampton Rd, Bristol BS9 2DP, UK – 0117 968 5859

Excellent service and excellent food. Genuinely used because of the Google reviews were high and can honestly say it is a clear winner in my book. Called leaving the Bristol rugby at Ashton Gate and food was ready as I pulled up. Top marks, well done

Amazing food, amazing staff love the place and use it all the time! Love that I live so near 15% discount on collections x

Primary and Secondary Schools

Nova Primary School

16 Barrack's Ln, Bristol BS11 9NG, UK – 0117 903 0446

Really pleased with how my son is progressing through the school. He started in reception and is now in year 4. School communications could be a little better, however, communications where it matters most such as school incidents are good, just sometimes letters about class trips or parents evenings are very short notice (especially for working parents). The facilities are good and I think the management team leads well. I'm excited to see the changes that happen when Mrs Morris takes over as head teacher in 2018, as we have seen a lot of positive changes since her appointment as deputy a couple of years ago.

This is my school,it used to be Avon primray,this is a big change,now im in year 4 i got new friends,plus my school is green not blue,im sad its green because i dont really like green,plus my friends are moving school,its hard to get to school on time though because school here starts at 9am.

Rick's Driving School Bristol

318 Armidale Ave, Bristol BS6 5BQ, UK – 07889 041989

Rick is an excellent driving instructor. He got me to a standard where I could pass my test first time (thanks very much - was really good to get this out of the way!), without rushing for the test or fluke on the day. He is very calm and to the point, and instructs you beyond what you will need to just pass your test, but also to make you a better driver after this. His patience and reassurance, but with him gently pushing your boundaries you will see yourself progressing rapidly but in a way that you are comfortable with. He was fairly flexible when I wanted to space lessons out a bit, but never cancelled or delayed a lesson from his end and they were always at the same time each week as organised. I had to be put on a short waiting list for about 2 weeks but have no problems with this and it is definitely worth the wait. Thanks, Rick! See you for the motorway driving!

Thanks to Rick, I passed my driving test first time! Every lesson I completed with Rick I felt myself progressing steadily. He teaches with patience and I never felt under pressure or a lack of control. His calm and reassuring manner meant I became confident behind the wheel when I was very shaky to start with. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to pass their test, and more importantly, for those looking to become an experienced, confident driver :) Thank you!!
