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

Lloyds Bank

Oldfield Park Bath, 23 Moorland Rd, Bath BA2 3PW, UK – 0345 300 0000

Thank you. I was looking for the full postal address and that's what you gave. Pity there was no Bank Managers name though.

The Co-op Bank - Bath

30 Milsom St, Bath BA1 1DG, UK – 01225 463327

Since I have no choice but to put my money in a bank I'm glad that I have the choice of the Co-operative. I'm proud to be a member because of their ethics and their service. Will bank with them for as long as that lasts.

HSBC

45 Milsom Street, Banes, Somerset, Bath BA1 1DU, UK – 0345 740 4404

Not the most ideal location, but it's a bank. Can't really say much more than that

Building Societies

Bath Investment & Building Society

15 Queen Square, Bath BA1 2HN, UK – 01225 423271

Small savings and mortgage specialists who specialise in flexibility and personal service.

Nationwide

21 Old Bond St, Bath BA1 2LA, UK – 0800 554 0403

Reasonably good bank, not the best location but don't let that get you

Local Chambers of Commerce for BA1 2BA with contact details and location maps. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out.
Guildhall

High St, Bath, City Centre, Bath BA1 5AW, UK – 01225 394041

I attended my sons civil ceremony here, it was quite impressive a venue.

Superb Wedding venue, very helpful staff which helped make our day magical, highly recommend .

Bath MOT

Fleet Services Depot, Locksbrook Rd, Bath BA1 3EL, UK – 01225 477314

These lot are life savers! Extremely friendly and go out of there way to help you. Mot car in no time. I returned for a retest. They are fab! Highly recommend!

OK, an MOT is an MOT but why not be choosey who does it for you? Just had mine done at the Council MOT station Locksbrook Road. I rate it very highly because; its easy to get to, staff are friendly, complimentary tea/coffee, no up-selling of additional services, fast and efficient, they do it while you wait at the appointed time, ( so in and out in 1 hr. They offer a free reminder service for next year (DVLA charge $1.50 for this service), a loyalty discount for next year, and of course the profits that would have lined the garage owners pockets are put back into Council services reducing my Council Tax bill. And more importantly for me, they have no incentive to fail the car to get extra work as has been my experience in the past with MOT stations linked to garage services. Why go elsewhere?

Dental Surgeries

Bath Spa Dentistry

19 James St W, Bath BA1 2BT, UK – 01225 464346

This is a Super practice. Very Friendly team and lovely environment. Dentists and hygienists are superb and I would not hesitate to recommend this practice to anyone. Staff are very knowledgeable and always go above and beyond!

My visits to Bath Spa Dentistry are always something to look forward to. This is because it begins as I enter, with a friendly reception - which puts me in a relaxed frame of mind, before any work begins. Jason - who handles my somewhat unusual one off brace fitting ;is with his assistant both efficient and calm during procedures. He also makes time for a brief chat or joke - making the time spent in the chair fly by. To sum it all up, I would say that what appeals to me, is that I trust the high quality professional skill sets that the staff offer, and at the same time admire their people friendly methods used. Keep up the fine work, David Snowdon

Oldfield Dental Centre

I am really fussy with doctors due to previous bad experiences but I feel safe here. Dr Gardiner-Thorpe is incredible

Great customer service and extremely polite. Can be difficult to access for the severely disabled because of it's location underneath the doctors surgery.

Widcombe Surgery

3-4 Widcombe Hill, Bath BA2 4JT, UK – 01225 310883

GP’s & Staff Widcombe Surgery 3-4 Widcombe Parade Widcombe Bath BA2 4JT Our ref: SES//68416 25th July 2016 To the GP’s & Staff at Widcombe Surgery, I am writing to congratulate everyone at your surgery on the fantastic patient care that you provide to the people of Bath. The recent national survey results are a testament to this. In the Bath and North East Somerset area, on average, 94% of patients feel the service they receive from their local surgery is "good" which is well above the national average of 85%. It is by virtue of the hard-work of surgeries, like your own, that Bath boasts among the best customer survey results in the country. Everyone in Bath is very grateful for the care that Widcombe Surgery provides and it brings great reassurance to know that we benefit from some of the best surgery staff in the country. Everyone at Widcombe Surgery should be very proud of the results achieved, which rank your surgery, not only amongst the best in the area, but across the country too. It is particularly impressive that 84% feel that their GP listens to them at your surgery which is a staple of the service that you provide. I am sure that you will continue to provide unparalleled levels of customer care. Please do pass on my congratulations to the rest of the staff and please do not hesitate to get in touch if I can ever be of any assistance. Best wishes, Ben Howlett Member of Parliament for Bath

I consider myself to be very fortunate indeed to be registered with Widcombe Surgery where I have received quality care and attention. I am happy to recommend the Widcombe Practice.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Royal United Hospital

Combe Park, Bath, Avon BA1 3NG, UK – 01225 428331

Every time my wife or I have needed them we have had excellent care. They have a constrained site and a big development programme which is bound to cause difficulties. There is a very good park and ride system if you object to the parking charges.

Very supportive, professional approach by all staff. Some maintenance jobs need doing but it is a complex, 52 acre site

Royal National Hospital For Rheumatic Diseases

Upper Borough Walls, Bath BA1 1RL, UK – 01225 465941

A fantastic service, I am always treated with respect, I am given options in my own care and my opinion matters to them. I am very very lucky to be cared for by this amazing team, I'm not so lucky as for the reason why I am here in the first place but that is irrelevant. Wonderfully kind team, including receptionists. Knowledgable respectful and approachable medical professionals. I can't rate them highly enough, they have changed my life for the better.

Staff were all great and if you're lucky enough to be here on the AS course, the treatment and physio exercises you get taught are excellent for your future well being.

Bath Centre for Pain Services

Royal National Hospital For Rheumatic Diseases, Upper Borough Walls, Bath BA1 1RL, UK – 01225 473427

This is where my life changed for the best. Met great Drs but for the month I stayed here I learnt how to live with my pain, More important though we're the other people on the course with me, going through the same things in life. I met the most fantastic people that soon became very close friends. Jane, Aileen, Irene, Joy, Tracey, Barry and Kevin. Love and miss them all xxxx

Excellent job clearing rubbish. Reasonable price and very efficient. Highly recommend.

I called Sage Waste Management to clear some rubble and hard core from my property and Andrew was fantastic; came round to quote (at a reasonable price), booked in a time to clear, came and did the job leaving nothing behind! Very happy!

Ace Rubbish Removals

14 Whitewells Rd, Bath BA1 6NZ, UK – 07880 857292

Showed up 10 minutes early. Friendly and quick service. Very good value for money.

They just came to pick up my old three seater sofa and an armchair in Widcombe. They provided a very good service! They were friendly and professional. They are also very good value for money (they are cheaper than renting a van or getting the council to pick up the sofa!).

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Superb genuine Thai food at a beautiful restaurant. Excellent service from the staff who all wear traditional Thai clothing and a menu full of delicious Thai cuisine. We always try to visit when we're in Bath.

Great Thai food in a lovely atmospheric environment. The staff wear traditional Thai dresses. The food was superb. It is not a bargain night out but worth it on occasion. The waitress was friendly and helpful and seem to have time for us although the restaurant was full. We never felt we were being rushed. We will definitely be back when we visit Bath again.

Sotto Sotto

Best restaurant in the world Food 10/10- high quality simple food done very well Staff 10/10 amazing staff that make you feel welcome and are very attentive Prices 10/10 We ate like kings for a very modest fee. Half of what I expected. All restaurants in the UK could learn from them. They put the lemon you get with your meal in a net to prevent seeds getting on your plate- amazing. Verona is terrible!

Superb venue, wonderful staff !! Menu choices are excellent and varied. Food was second to none, thoroughly enjoyed my visit, will return. Recommend to anyone.
