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!

Brilliant staff, I am very nervous with dentist, but the staff here are really friendly and helpful they put you at ease and talk to you all the time. I would recommend them to anyone who is scared of dentist.

Brockley House Dental

10 Lansdown, Stroud GL5 1BB, UK – 01453 763992

Great friendly service. Quick effective and good feedback and recommendations. Wouldn't go anywhere else

i have been registered with the practice now for a couple of years and could not be happier with the service i receive. On a few occasions i have needed an emergency appointment and have always been fitted in promptly. I have always been more than happy with the treatment i've recieved. The dentist is always very informative, taking time to explain all options and helping me to decide what suits me best. The nurses are always lovely and helpful. Reception staff cant do enough for you when it comes to arranging appointments. Honestly wouldnt go anywhere else. Have also recommended a few friends and family who are also overly happy with the services provided.

Archway Dental Practice Ltd

Frome House, London Rd, Stroud GL5 2AA, UK – 01453 760330

No problems with the dentists here. Staff are friendly and reminders of appointments are helpfully provided via text. Car parking is available across the road and is really cheap... currently around £1.80 for three hours, which is the most expensive option, and is also free after 3pm every day.

Good dental practice with friendly staff. All the family go there and would recommend it.

As a patient of several years, I can highly recommend this practice. I have always received excellent quality care from both dentist James Barber and hygienist Lisa Rodway - both top professionals! ...

Always a pleasant experience with friendly and welcoming staff. Great for children and adults. Would recommend to anyone.

Confident Dental & Implant Clinic

Cotswold House, 37 London Rd, Stroud GL5 2AJ, UK – 01453 764287

Thank you to Dr. Paul and Sarah for a brilliant, friendly session. Painless, technical and educational. An extraction of a wisdom tooth conducted with great expertise. I am very grateful. There was no pain at all, not even subsequently. I hope this review inspires confidence to any readers that they will be in great hands with up to the minute techniques and a genuinely caring approach.

A friendly welcome from the receptionists followed by a very short wait before being personally greeted by the Practitioner and shown to the surgery room. A full explanation of the purpose behind the day's visit is given, and then the treatment commences. The care and needs of the patient are always given a high priority by all members of the Practice. You couldn't actually have a better experience at the dentist than the one you are given here.

Confident Dental Implants Centre

Cotswold House, 37 London Rd, Stroud GL5 2AJ, UK – 01453 706070

I have never looked back since going ahead with my implant treatment. The treatment with Dr Colin Neil went like clockwork, exactly as he described. Healing was comfortable and as expected. Initially the treatment was a big investment but now I only wish I had done it sooner. Implants are so much better than the alternatives! My implants feel, look and function like natural teeth!

I had almost a full mouth of dental implants with Dr Colin Neil a few years ago now. This included a same day smile full arch all-on-4 implant fixed bridge to replace all my upper teeth on the same day. I found the process pain free and smooth and now a few years later I am still delighted with all my implant teeth. My friends are all very jealous of me as their own natural teeth have been problems for them but by comparison my implant teeth have been no problem at all!. I would certainly recommend Dr Colin Neil and Confident Implants in Stroud.

Locking Hill Surgery

St Luke's Therapy Centre

53 Cainscross Rd, Stroud GL5 4EX, UK – 01453 763755

I didn’t know I can live pain free. Dr. Andrew procedures helped me enormously. I am able to go down the stairs with no pain now. I can do so many things,that I thought, I would never be able to do again. I am writing this review, so other people can live pain free too and enjoy their lifes. Highly recommend Dr Andrew Evans. Thank you Dr. Evans, I can enjoy my life again!

A peaceful setting, quiet and harmonious, a beautiful garden and rooms. Individual therapists, working seemlessly together.This outer, space reflects the inner space, the centre provides. Thankyou.

Stroud General Hospital

Trinity Rd, Stroud GL5 2HY, UK – 0300 421 8080

Visiting the UK from Jersey got bitten by mosquitoes and they went bad. So because of this paid a visit to the minor incident unit. A long wait of 4.5 hours to be seen in a hot waiting room. Eventually seen and given great treatment. I expect to be waiting at these joints but perhaps more of an update on progress as for long periods they didn't seem to be seeing any patients.

Have only needed to use it a few times, but every time I have received excellent care. Friendly staff. Well done. Long may it continue.

Stroud Maternity Hospital

Field Rd, Stroud GL5 2JB, UK – 0300 421 8018

I was born here. My mum told me it was the place to go when delivering a child or a new life. She said it was the best place around. My 3 sisters have now all given birth to their children here too. It's still known for being the best in the area.

Very good staff. They are so reliable and very helpful. I was unfortunate to have a midwife that was useless but I was able to change midwife's very quickly.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Stroud

Rajdoot Restaurant

16 Gloucester St, Stroud GL5 1QG, UK – 01453 763725

The food was pretty good, though small things could be better (a curry with cherries as a listed ingredient had only one, samosa were small). Ordering on the telephone was very hard as the gentleman who answered was thickly accented and my hearing is not the best. Only takes credit card if you collect.

Good quality Indian food, no table booked wasn't kept waiting long. I recommend the Biryani; was delicious. Obtrusive tin circular lighting at each table, very big in circumference; hangs bright light glaring into your eyes and face. Polite management and waiters; this is an OK place to eat in Stroud.

Star Inn

Star Green, Main Rd, Whiteshill, Stroud GL6 6AE, UK – 01453 765321

Nice clean pub not a great selection of drinks

Very nice, light, and clean pub with friendly service and traditional "British" style of decoration (fireplace, wooden tables, comfy bench seats, etc.). Regular live music and even on weekdays sometimes. Definitely worth a visit.

Dinner At Six

6 Union St, Stroud GL5 2HE, UK – 01453 758477

Lovely food, came here for a friends party and was extremely impressed with the food and service. Very nice restaurant in Stroud.

Exceedingly good food, lovely atmosphere, and very polite service.

Nursery and Preschools

Curious Caterpillars Day Nursery

Downfield Lodge, Downfield Rd, Stroud GL5 4HL, UK – 01453 750957

A lovely nursery. Staff are caring and enthusiastic about all the activities they do with the children. My son has been there for over a year now and he absolutely loves going to nursery which really helps. He does so many different things during the day and enjoys the lovely outdoor space too. The communication with home through their books is brilliant and gives you an insight into their day. I really recommend Curious Caterpillars.

My daughter attends this Nursery. She cannot wait to go each day, which is a relief. The staff are incredible, and go out of their way to make her feel secure and happy here. The communication between the staff and parents is good. My daughter is currently transitioning rooms, and this process has been happening at her pace and all seems to be going smoothly so far. My only niggle is traffic at drop off can be a bit difficult, but we knew that would be the case - and makes school holidays an extra easy drop off treat!! We are very glad to have found curious caterpillars after looking at a variety of other local childcare options.

Rosary Catholic Primary School

Beeches Green Podiatry Service, Merrywalks, Stroud GL5 4AB, UK – 01453 762774

Severn View Primary Academy

Bisley Old Rd, Stroud GL5 1NL, UK – 01453 766328

Severn view primary academy is a vibrant, colourful school full to the brim of exquisite teachers and wonderful children. It is run by a head teacher who not only has a huge amount of experience but also who cares deeply for the children, the Stroud community and her staff. The school, which was taken over by the new head teacher when the future longevity of the academy was in question, has come along in leaps and bounds! It's even on a good school guide! Severn view academy is a school that cherishes the child as an individual and their learning journey. Do not hesitate in sending your children to this school.

When I first became aware of Severn View Academy, it was in the bottom ten percent of all English Primary schools for its results, it is now in the top ten percent. What a change, all due to the continued support of a consistent, dedicated and knowledgeable staff who want the best education for all of the pupils. The children are lovely and enthusiastic to learn, not surprising given the wonderful opportunities they are given such as the Sow and Grow scheme, outdoor learning at its best and Fantastic Friday's, that allow them to try lots of different sporting, musical and art activities. I wish my children were young enough to go as I would have no hesitation in sending them. A visit to the school by prospective parents would confirm my views I am sure, go and see for yourself!

Stroud High School

Beard's Ln, Stroud GL5 4HF, UK – 01453 764441

Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 7m digital planetarium experience to 45 Year 7 pupils at Stroud High School. I was warmly welcomed by the staff and found the hall prepared just as I had requested - plus I was brought very welcome refreshment on a very hot day. The afternoon was well organised with the group arriving on time. The excited but well-behaved students enjoyed a rich selection of content: peering up at the planetarium night sky, flying through the rings of Saturn, travelling to the Galapagos with Charles Darwin and pondering the question why we find Nature and the Universe so beautiful. Thank you Stroud High School for a very pleasant visit.

A good school, my daughter loves it there.
