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!

An excellent bank with first-class customer service. Can't praise it too highly!


13 Parliament Street, North Yorkshire, York YO1 8RS, UK – 0345 740 4404

The staff were so much more helpful than any other bank I've been to in York. As opposed to a week wait to get an appointment, I could see someone on the spot. All questions answered and were able to help instead of put up barriers. Thanks guys!

Never had a problem here. Only complaint would be long wait times but it's a city centre branch, it's to be expected.

Andrea Ubhi Dentistry

22 Goodramgate, York YO1 7LG, UK – 01904 639667

I would just like to say how amazed I have been by the quality of dentistry that I have received. I am a little nervous of the dentist, and I wanted to improve the look of my teeth. I cam for a free consultation, which I was really happy with. Dr Adam Glassford explained all the options available to me, including the pros and cons of each option in a no-nonsense way that I appreciated. After treatment, my teeth look absolutely great, amazing actually and they look 100% natural - which was the whole aim. Thank you Adam, Michelle and Carmel, and all the team. I would definitely recommend.

I came to see doctor glassford and his team last year for his opinion on my smile. He is a lovely man very direct and knowledgable. As soon as I entered the room I knew I was in safe hands. Him and his nurse even offered to do treatment there and then which I thought was excellent service!! I then spoke with his young long dark haired assistant - beth if I remember correctly who gave me a quotation and talked me through the process step by step she was very informative and down to earth, she handed me her card and said to call her with any questions which again put me at ease. They couldn’t have done enough for me. GO TO ANDREA UBHI!!!

Blossom Dental Care & Implant Studio

25 Blossom St, York YO24 1AQ, UK – 01904 654889

So happy with my recent dental treatment. My family and I have been longstanding patients of this practice. I recently had terrible toothache and when I called the practice they got me into to see my dentist on the same day. The dentist was so nice. They went through all the options available to me and in the end I decided that I wanted to keep the tooth; they did all the treatment there & then and that night although the tooth was sore I was out of pain and able to have a good night sleep. I have to go back in a couple of weeks for the second appointment but I am so happy they have managed to save the tooth. Thank you for all your hard work and making me feel so comfortable throughout my treatment.

I have been attending this practice for over 5years now. After struggling for many years to find a good dentist I can state that I am really happy with the treatment I have received here. When I first attended I had some loose teeth and really bad gum disease-now I am much happier with my teeth and smile. The dentist really took the time to explain what I needed to do to keep the gum disease at bay and the treatment is really focused on prevention and keeping my remaining teeth. I would definitely recommend this practice.

Oasis Dental Care York - Lawrence Street

107 Lawrence St, City Centre, York YO10 3EF, UK – 01904 411993

Myself and hubby have had excellent dental treatments from Liz Gibson for the past 20 years. Genuinely sad to hear she's left the practice. Liz always made our bi-annual check ups light-hearted with her humour.. Please send her our future good wishes. That said, an infected wisdom tooth requiring a short notice appointment was dealt with very well by Mr Browne. The practice is professional, friendly and has a good duty of care.

I've been with the dentist for over 30 years, very helpful staff as I am so scared! Natalia Sobczak who has been my dentist for a couple of years now is excellent. I would highly recommend this practice. 5stars all the way.

Nuffield Health York Hospital

Haxby Rd, York YO31 8TA, UK – 01904 715000

The aftercare I received following my knee operation was absolutely appalling, I was informed to "check on the internet" because the surgeon neglected to inform me of the what he had actually done to my knee and whether I was to use crutches or not. I left the hospital with no stick or crutches, holding onto my friend's arm and the wall, in tears and pain, in order to leave the hospital. Except for the receptionist no-one came to my assistance! Having said that, once I was actually seen by a physio therapist, the care, imparting of knowledge and management of my progress has been outstanding.

Celebrating international nurses day !

Can't get enough of this place, a green oasis teeming with life, a massive asset to a great city and a fantastic bunch of people working there. I've seen loads of finches, beetles, and a few water voles, but the kingfisher still eludes me!

I visit this lovely little nature reserve at least once a week. I'm amazed at the richness of the wildlife here - and it's just a mile from the centre of York. Take your time walking through the reserve - and keep your eyes open. You never know what you might see! I've seen both Kingfishers and Water Voles on Tang Hall Beck, where it flows through the reserve

I bought a 4 seater dining table 2 weeks after seeing it In store. I arranged a delivery date with the a friendly lady who was really helpful to fit around my working pattern. The delivery arrived on the time and date arranged. The two delivery men carried the furniture right inside my house and set it up! Really friendly from start to finish team and now I have my eye on a bed frame!!

Lovely store and friendly staff, my delivery was on time and the guys were very helpful and they carried my furniture into the house for me. Will definitely be using the store again
