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!

Banks

Virgin Money

10 Regent Circus, Swindon SN1 1PW, UK – 01793 529098

Small "shop" which seems to have just two very helpful and friendly members of staff (a receptionist/administrator and a manager). As it never seems it be very busy (Virgin money seems to encourages transactions over the internet) and as Virgin doesn't have that many different financial products, so most transactions are fairly straightforward anyway, this is fine.

Great dental clinic - very understanding and gentle as im a bit sensitive when it comes to having my teeth done. Great monthly payment plans too makes getting teeth cleaning done and checkups nicely affordable - actually enjoyed walking out after my hygiene appointment and not having to pay anything :) Thank you Smiles for making the Dentist more enjoyable x

So happy i joined here staff was lovely my new dentist was amazing the work carried out was done with perfection. Thank you!!

Smile Dental Care

Eldene Medical Centre, Eldene, Swindon SN3 3RZ, UK – 01793 530784

We use this dentist for our family and the dentist lady is very nice. She reassured the kids and asks them if they are ok. She is keen to hear what everyone has to say about their teeth. Nice quiet waiting room. And the wait is not that long. The nurses are helpful. The receptionists are good at what they do too. Only thing wrong is they ring you on your appointment day to cancel it as the dentist wants to go home. Not a good way to do things

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Swindon

Los Gatos

1-3 Devizes Road, Old Town, Swindon SN1 4BJ, UK – 01793 488450

It's a cosy place with good choice of food and drinks. Lots of Spanish specialties to try. Food is sized for eating at least one starter and one main. Service is fast. Playing Spanish music would make the place more authentic.

This place is special, the food and service are truly exceptional, best in Swindon by a long long way. Other reviews say it all, no one leaves disappointed. Very very very good indeed.

The Jewel In The Crown

14-16 Victoria Rd, Swindon SN1 3AL, UK – 01793 522687

The staff were very friendly and helpful, they made sure that we knew of any extra costs (on top of the voucher) before we ordered which made them seem really honest and respectable. I had the chicken tandoori and it was delicious! Honestly the food was some of the best Indian food I have had in a restaurant. It was also really lovely decor and the staff were wearing traditional dress which made it feel like a real experience. I loved it, would highly recommend, and I would definitely go again!

A fantastic restaurant, amazing staff and service. The food is absolutely out of this world. We went for my daughters birthday and they surprised us by decorating the table and put up birthday banner for her. I can't thank them or praise them enough . Thank you xx

Fratello's

12 Victoria Rd, Swindon SN1 3AJ, UK – 01793 574444

Excellent food. We went for my fiance's Birthday meal and they treated her very well. Recommend you book in advance as it gets busy but there's plenty of room and I'm a big guy. I'm a huge fan of Italian food almost to the point I'd rather stay at home and make my own as opposed to paying for it out as the experience can be hit or miss. I've been there twice and We'll be going back again in the bear future. Dennis

Always excellent, their calamari is the best in town (they do it 'properly' cutting julienne strips down the line of body so it's always tender, instead of making rings cutting across the muscle so it can go rubbery if cooked for 2secs too long). Lunch time deal is fantastic and they even do it at the weekend! (£7.95 for /any/ pizza or pasta on the menu, how can you go wrong?!)

Care Of Eldene Community Centre/Eldene Centre, Swindon SN3 3RZ, UK – 07599 950857

Both my children attend Eldene Pre-school and Toddler and they love it! Their development has come along really well in there time there and they have fun at the same time. My eldest comes home everyday and tell us of the adventures they have been on. All the staff that work there are lovely and always make time for any questions we may have and keep us informed of anything they are planning with the kids.

I’ve been sending my children here for over 5 years now. I am very pleased with the progress each of my children have made and it has given them a great starting point for their school years. I would highly recommend Eldene preschool and toddlers to anyone looking for one.
