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!

22 Queen St, Oxford OX1 1EP, UK – 01865 447512

Unfortunately massive waste of prime real estate, huge a huge lobby that would be great for something else. Always friendly staff here. Personally don't feel the need for a physical bank.

Good place

Building Societies


44 Queen St, Oxford OX1 1ET, UK – 0800 554 0351

Perfectly reasonable branch of a pleasant building society. Went the extra mile when we took out our first mortgage by sending a box of essentials - toilet paper, mugs, tea, UHT milk etc. - to our new house so that we could settle in before we started to unpack: nice touch.

Very friendly, polite service

The best dentist. Great with kids.

Temple Street Dental Practice

26 Temple St, Oxford OX4 1JS, UK – 01865 922111

Can recommend very highly. Very efficient, excellent booking system with reminders and very high quality care. I was seen by Dr Tan who was absolutely brilliant.

I went to Temple Street Dental Practice a few weeks ago and have been meaning to post a review for a while. I hadn’t been to a dentist for years and thought I should! The service was great and the receptionist was very friendly. The dental care I received was very excellent - thank you Emily and Tas! I will definitely be going back there next time.

Bupa Dental Care Oxford

22 Beaumont St, Oxford OX1 2NA, UK – 01865 243702

I eventually decided to see a hygienist for a polish and clean because my teeth were stained and scummy. A really nice Scottish girl took the time to give my teeth a really deep "sandblasting". My teeth are now gleaming and a couple people have asked if I have had them whitened. Great value for 60 quid as the clean lasted the best part of an hour you only need to get it done twice a year if done well.

My first dental appointments in many years and I have to say it was probably the best experience I’ve ever had. Dentist Mo was very efficient and caring and everything was explained well. Natalie, hygienist, had a harder time with me as she had to deal with years of neglect but she was VERY good with excellent advice and samples to improve my brushing. Andra, Fanny and Jo were welcoming and efficient at reception and it was lovely to see Thom, practice manager, out on reception with the team! All in all I would highly recommend this practice particularly if you’re in any way apprehensive as they will look after you!

King Edward Street Medical Practice

9 King Edward St, Oxford OX1 4JA, UK – 01865 242657

Dr. Drury is outstanding. I wish everyone I cared for had her for a doctor. You feel that you're working together to get to the common goal of your health and happiness.

Dr Drury is outstanding in her care, both from a medical perspective and a personable one. Thank you for all the great work you do! The midwife Denise is also superb and lovely, as are all the receptionists and doctors I have encountered at this practice. So pleased to have across this practice.

Dr K F Ward - Bartlemas Surgery

East Oxford Health Centre, 1 Manzil Way, Oxford OX4 1XD, UK – 01865 263120

Been to this surgery often with son daughter and wife. Mostly with 8 year old son as he is diabetes 1 and really treated well staff always friendly and cheerful. Parking sometimes a problem but where isn't it in Oxford. Best surgery I have known.

As with every doctors (when you get past the receptionist) You see a different doctor everytime...Nearly a two week wait to see a doctor...!!

Kennington Health Centre

200 Kennington Rd, Kennington, Oxford OX1 5PY, UK – 01865 730911

Automated check-in and seen on time. The nurse was a locum, friendly and very good.

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.

Nuffield Health Oxford, The Manor Hospital

Beech Rd, Oxford OX3 7RP, UK – 01865 307777

Over the last few years I have been an outpatient, surgical inpatient and everything in between and so have experienced most of what this hospital has to offer. It has a culture where excellence is expected and delivered at every level. The facilities are kept spotlessly clean and hygienic, the nursing and ancillary staff are highly motivated, professional and genuinely caring, the consultants are among the best in the country, the rooms are comfortable and well furnished, the housekeeping first rate and the food imaginative, well prepared and tasty. The only weakness I have experienced is that twice outpatient reception did not tell the consultant I had arrived, resulting in an unnecessarily and overlong wait, but that's that's just about forgivable when compared to the overall consistently high standards delivered. I remain seriously impressed.

I had my first major surgery at the Manor Hospital to be put under general anaesthesia for a laparoscopic myomectomy. My surgeon was Dr Simon Jackson and anaesthetist was Dr Vivian Addy. I received a very high standard of care from them as well as the team of nurses who were very knowledgeable about post-surgery matters which were usually not told in great details to patients before the surgery. The food was delicious and the facilities were always cleaned with the highest standards. There were too many nurses who attended to me so I cannot remember many names but one nurse (Erica Su) spent some time talking to me prior to the surgery which put me at ease. After being discharged, I actually missed the nurses. But overall very glad to have survived the surgery with no major complications. To me, Dr Simon Jackson is a world class top surgeon and I feel fortunate that he was able to perform the surgery for me. I hope my review can help other women who are unsure about getting their fibroids removed.

Wesley Memorial Methodist Church

New Inn Hall St, Oxford OX1 2DH, UK – 01865 243216

Wesley Memorial Church is a beautiful religious building built in 1878 and located a few meters from Oxford Castle.

History is always cool. Neat to see how they lived during that time.

St Aldates Church

40 Pembroke St, Oxford OX1 1BP, UK – 01865 254800

St Aldate's Church was built in the 12th century.

My home church for over 20 years. I've stayed through many changes and still encounter God here. What more can I say?

St. Ebbe's

2 Roger Bacon Ln, Oxford OX1 1QE, UK – 01865 240438

Warm, welcoming church. Proclaiming the gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ faithfully year on year. Reaching out to students and city folk alike.

Our family have been part of St Ebbe's for a while now. We go to the 9.45am service which has excellent children's groups that are friendly and fun and a great place to learn for under 14s. There's a crèche for babies too. The preaching is exceptional, often going through a book of the bible over a number of weeks. I always feel engaged by it, learn new things and come away knowing God has spoken to me through his word. The music is modern, with one or two classic hymns which hit the mark. At the 9.45 they're accompanied by piano, plus a variety of guitar, bass, cello, violin, drums, etc. It's a welcoming church and definitely worth coming along to find out. Easiest to park in the Westgate Shopping Centre car par park and walk through past Sainsbury's to St Ebbe's.

Very satified by the work carried out on my bmw suspension. Good value for the money, considering the speed and flexibility I would recommend this garage for repairs and also any parts of the cars!

My car's turbocharger has packed up recently and gave them a call to buy replacement part. They did not have one in stock but they help me to source another one through there trade links. Got the part fitted today, working lovely plus been given 6 month warranty. Great company working for community.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Oxford

Pierre Victoire

9 Little Clarendon St, Oxford OX1 2HP, UK – 01865 316616

One of my favourite restaurants in Oxford. You need to book as its always busy. As its busy and quite crowded it can be noisy. Food in general is excellent and portions good. Mussell starter good,can also be had as main course. House red really good to my taste and not too ridiculously priced!

Excellent food, large enough choice to fit all tastes. All tastes fresh and expertly prepared. Attentive staff even in a rush. Book in advance as very busy on popular nights.

Jimbob's Baguettes

19 Magdalen St, Oxford OX1 3AE, UK – 01865 245549

Lovely place. Nice music. Helpful staff. Super comfy sofas. And I love the art in this place. Very cique.

Amazing little shop, a real one off quirky place. Lovely paninis, great music, friendly staff and perfect coffee. 5/5 👌

Spiced Roots Restaurant

64 Cowley Rd, Oxford OX4 1JB, UK – 01865 249888

Recommended this place by the Airbnb I'm staying at and this place delivered amazingly. Great fish starter followed by the curried goat accompanied by a chickpea saucy thing. So tasty without being too spicy. They suggested the citrus coleslaw which was so zesty and tasty that I recommend it! Would come back again as the staff and atmosphere (Caribbean music) were delightful.

My wife and I were visiting Oxford for a family member's graduation in April. Without making plans, we happened to walk by Spiced Roots late one evening and decided to give it a try. Amazing! We used to live in an area with several good Caribbean options but that was several years ago. This place reminded us of what we're missing! I had the jerk chicken, she had the black rice tempeh and we split some starters and plantains. Wish I lived nearby!
