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!

Dental Surgeries

Wantage House Dental Practice

the chapel, Newbury St, Wantage OX12 8DJ, UK – 01235 760491

Very impressed with this Dentist Practice, registered today, forms easy to fill in, nice polite staff. When the dentist called me he was a few minutes late, but apologised and explained why, his name was Alex and he was fantastic. Explained the procedures he was doing, even showing xrays afterwards, and that there was nothing wrong with my teeth. He is a great comfort to any nervous patient. I have only recently moved to the area, but know i've made the right choice in registering with this Dental Practice.

Been using other dentist around the area for many years and had issues at most. I wished I used Cherry Tree to have my crown done. Many many thanks to all staff at Cherry Tree for your help and support. Big thank you to Niall for your outstanding work and support Kind regards John

Arriving for my hygienist appointment last Friday and being a dental phobic I was not looking forward to it at all. I have to say a big thanks to Alana for making the experience so much better than I had anticipated. I have already rebooked and will not be putting it if in the future.

The Hartland Podiatry Clinic

10 Barnards Way, Wantage OX12 7EA, UK – 01235 798313

I can not rate Paul and the team from The Hartland Podiatry lining highly enough. Paul as the clinical director, is a highly knowledgable professional, but more than that he is a true gentleman. Right from the first appointment to review my condition to my final review to confirm successful treatment, Paul managed my expectations around treatment progression. The clinic treat the most people in the UK using 5he Swift technology and I can’t rate this as a treatment highly enough. I’m so pleased with what Paul has been able to do for me and if there were more stars available I’d give it to them! Thank you Paul and all the team there!

Excellent very comprehensive service.34

Yummy Thai

8 Newbury St, Wantage OX12 8BS, UK – 01235 768222

Amazing food! Wonderful service! The lady who served us was so funny and so nice. The decor isn't fancy or anything but it doesn't need it be. The food is so good and the staff are brilliant.

I love coming here for food. It's my favourite place nearby to go to on special occasions. The staff are incredibly friendly And accommodating as well as giving prompt, hassle-free service. The atmosphere is amazing with nice background music and a wide array of ornamental peices from Asia and other places I am sure. Its not as cheap as the Nelson of course but it's still very reasonably priced and the food is a fantastic quality as well.


43 Market Pl, Wantage OX12 8AW, UK – 01235 424327

Enjoyable tasty lunch. Attentive staff. Fixed menu was good value. Quick service. And, they have a small cinema - how weird is that?

I adore this place. The staff are lovely and the food is great. I've not got around to seeing a movie at Wildwood yet but it's become a regular for dinner with the family.

My son has been going to The Ark since he was two. The team are fantastic and I feel completely comfortable leaving him in their capable hands. He has grown in confidence and loves playing with the other children. I love that he comes home singing new songs and practising what he's learnt that day. I highly recommend The Ark.

Primary and Secondary Schools

Charlton Primary School

Charlton Village Road, Charlton, Wantage OX12 7HG, UK – 01235 762861

This is a lovely school which really cares about the children and works hard to get the best out of them. I have two boys who go to this school and they are very happy there. As a parent (and also a primary school teacher, but in another school I hasten to add) I can see how dedicated and hard working the staff are. The curriculum is varied and inspiring, the staff are always friendly and easy to approach and the recent building works have improved the school tremendously. For new parents with children starting in Foundation, the Foundation classroom are amazing. I think you will struggle to find a better environment for your children to start school in. The staff are also equally outstanding and extremely experienced.

Lovely primary school with friendly staff and a welcoming atmosphere
