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!

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

mydentist, Cricklade Road, Swindon

93-97 Cricklade Rd, Swindon SN2 1AB, UK – 01793 640183

My son and I both attended an appointment here today. It was my sons first appointment with a dentist and I cannot recommend enough. He came out and told me he canโ€™t wait to go to the dentist again ๐Ÿ˜‚. The ladies on reception were helpful and friendly. The dentist we saw was brilliant with my son and she talked him through everything as he was quite shy and nervous, she made him feel so comfortable. Thankyou! ๐Ÿ˜Š

I had been seen by one of MyDentists dentistry team recently and I could not get along with him. I had seen him twice and each time I mentioned that I needed a filling, he informed me I did not both times. I spoke to the very helpful receptionist and asked to be put with a different dentist within the practice. Today a new lady dentist saw me confirmed I needed a small filling and completed this for me. She was lovely, with a lovely manner I now have confidence in this practice again and the treatment was painless and finished within minutes. If you are thinking of joining this practice ask to be a patient under the new dentist. Please beware I am only going on my experience so I cannot not say how the other dentists are, save about the one I first had when I joined Mydentist.

Have used this practice for many years. I have always found everyone to be helpful and friendly. Although I might have to wait a while for a non urgent appointment I've always been seen promptly if that's what's been needed. Would certainly recommend this practice.

I really Love coming to this church and I feel the people that go there are really very welcoming and friendly and would always want to see you happy. Its nice that people come together and enjoy a common belief and enjoy doing nice things like picnics, get to gethers and many other positive things.. they are not confused, argueing, getting drunk and being negative and this is a very good thing in this life. I would go there every Sunday if I was able too!!

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Swindon


2, Regent Circus, Swindon SN1 1FA, UK – 01793 480769

The access to the restaurants is not too accessible to those with walking disabilities or if stairs an issue, is has disabled access but can be a rather long journey. The food served is exceptional and is quick to table, the prices of alcoholic beverages is very high and of limited variety.

Could quite possibly be the best Nandos I've ever eaten! However I have only been once! Recommend this Nandos based off my one and only visit.


131 Victoria Rd, Swindon SN1 3BU, UK – 01793 611265

Fabulous food as usual. We always go here for our wedding anniversary and as children our parents used to get pizza take away. Wonderful atmosphere and amazing service. Thank you so much for another wonderful meal.

A great return visit to a real Italian restaurant. Walking in, felt like being in Italy with the sound of lovely romantic Italian music and a warm greeting. The food was excellent - we had fresh mussels and mushrooms in blue cheese sauce for starter, pizza de mare and escalope with mushroom sauce for main and chocolate fudge cake - which was the lightest I have ever tasted. We had wine with our meal and finished off with a limoncelo and real espresso and cappuccino coffees. Loved it.

Old Town Thai

23 Wood Street, Swindon SN1 4AN, UK – 01793 433924

Walked from the Marriott for what turned out to be a very good meal with first class service. Booked over the phone and had a reserved table upstairs (which we were pleased for as it was very busy and downstairs looked packed) where we appeared to have much more room. The food was amazing and they have a great Gin Menu. Would highly recommend.

The food is cooked to absolute perfection. Best Thai I have had. My only downfall would be I feel the starters a little too small. But other than that absolutely perfect!

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.

Iโ€™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.
