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!

According to Martin Lewis, the founder of MoneySupermarket (MSE), no bank can beat Nationwide on similar bundle insurance cover, saving you hundred of pounds. Once i forgot my wallet and need emergency money, i could withdrew £20 from my account here. This place is newly redesigned and renovated since April 2018. It is all very exciting.

Dental Surgeries

Peachcroft Dental Practice

Suite 4, Peachcroft Shopping Centre, Peachcroft Rd, Abingdon OX14 2QA, UK – 01235 532672

Unlike those who have posted before me, a positive experience. Perhaps a case of the only people who review are those who had a bad experiance? I too have a phobia of dentists, though perhaps not as strong as some. I find it helps to close your eyes. It's worse seeing the tools approaching your mouth, and then imaging what is going to happen. I started with an emergency appointment due to tooth-ache. I got an appointment within 5 hours of my call. The lady dentist put me at ease, and did a quick exam, took an x-ray, put me on antibiotics, and re-booked me in 3 weeks time for an extraction. Needless to say I was more than a bit nervous when the time came to get the tooth pulled. The injections of anaesthetic I hardly felt, though it tasted vile. Perhaps mildly uncomfortable, not painful. After probably 4 minutes of (painless) pulling I was starting to think to myself 'how long is this going to take?' Only for her to say 'That's it, all done.' Not a pleasant experiance, but not unpleasant either. It made me wonder why I waited so long in the first place to get it sorted, as if I had gone in sooner I would almost certainly have had a filling and not an extraction.

Bath Street Dental Practice

6 Bath St, Abingdon OX14 3QH, UK – 01235 520101

Great practice. My daughter loves her visits there! Interior recently refreshed and lovely. Staff are helpful and friendly. Would highly reccomend!

Having recently moved to the area, I was grateful to stumble across this excellent dental practice. Very accommodating! Superb experience all round

Stert Street Dental Surgery

45 Stert St, Abingdon OX14 3JF, UK – 01235 522212

Great dental practice

Dr W D Brace - Malthouse Surgery

The Malthouse Surgery, The Charter, Abingdon OX14 3JY, UK – 01235 468860

I find the staff friendly, helpful and the doctors sympathic and open. My issues are that it is just too crowded, and the whole surgery under so much pressure from sheer quantity of work that it is hard to get an appointment and then, hard to get the follow -ups which inevitably involve the rest of the NHS (surgery or analysis for surgery) so burdened that doing things in a timely manner is now almost impossible. I blame the government not the NHS or this local surgery.

Marcham Road Family Health Centre

Marcham Rd, Abingdon OX14 1BT, UK – 01235 522602

Some doctors are more sympathetic than others. The Self Service Point missed me this morning on 21 May 2018. It had done that once a few years ago. It was frustrating as i dutifully waited for more than 45minutes. Next time if anyone of you out there waited for more than 15minutes, go to the front desk and complain. That is what i was told to do. Short term appointments are difficult to book as bookings can be more than 2 weeks full.

I've always been able to get an appointment when I need one. The doctors and nurse that I've seen have always been very friendly, helpful and open to questions. I've never left feeling bad about my experience.

The Abingdon Surgery

65 Stert St, Abingdon OX14 3LB, UK – 01235 523126

Fantastic surgery. The best that I have experienced in Oxfordshire. Very caring and patient centred, I am extremely impressed with all my interactions with them.

Excellent surgery, onsite parking and very clean. The reception staff are very helpful unlike other surgeries in England. The GP's, nurses and all staff generally very talented and happy to help. Best surgery in Abingdon!

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.

Abingdon Community Hospital

lucky enough I've only been here on the odd occasion, but I can honestly say the service was great and the staff were very friendly and helpful towards me plus considerate and kind.

Quite superb each time we’ve visited. It’s NOT an A&E, so I’m not sure what the other reviewers have in mind when they post negative comments (I.e. call an ambulance if you’re collapsing, go to A&E urgently if you have plastic in your eye...

This is our family church, we got married here in 1989, our daughter christened 1994, our daughter married 2015, and now our grandson christened 2018. We are always made to feel welcome, and as the church is not too big, it helps to not feel overwhelmed. Its a beutiful old building inside & out, with bells. Right in the heart of Abingdon, close to the towns historic county HQ, which is now a museum.

My favourite Church. There as a teenager, married there and both children christened there. Now in my 70's and still love it. 😊

Find Recycling Centres

Oxford Wood Recycling Ltd

4, Suffolk Way, Abingdon OX14 5JX, UK – 01235 861228

Brilliant i love this place !!! loads of inspiration great varied recycled random wooden items and timber- beautiful ! really helpful professional staff ...

I had my visit to Oxford Wood Recycling today. The staff seemed friendly and the stock seemed well organised. The idea of wood recycling fits in well with my ethos that we need to understand the true cost of wood and not see it as something that is disposable, but recyclable. My issue with Oxford Wood Recycling was their prices, which were I felt high considering the product. Too high to encourage most, I feel, to buy into what they are trying to achieve. This is a shame as more responsible (in my view) pricing may lead to more customers. I haven't write this place off entirely, but feel its that this is one more for the Hooray Henry's.

SAFE PC DISPOSAL

5 Suffolk Way, Abingdon OX14 5JX, UK – 01235 534365

Took a hard disc in which was not working. Instead of just trying to sell me a replacement hard drive they did further checks and found problem was with lead. Very helpful and honest people to deal with.

I found the staff very friendly and knowledgeable and I will not hesitate to give them more work as they did everything I required and quickly

We have been coming to Dorindos since opening. WE LOVE IT! The place gets better each one we visit, and you won’t find a better margarita outside o Mexico! Thank you to the bubbly, welcoming staff for always delivering an excellent evening out!

Amazing place, great food and lovely friendly staff. Was fully booked when i went but the staff still managed to get us a table. I'd definitely go back.

Chaba Thai Restaurant & Takeaway Abingdon

20 High St, Abingdon OX14 5AX, UK – 01235 525540

The service was good, the price wasn't bad, but the food was only okay. The best dish was probably the rice! I've had far better in thai food in restaurants around Oxford, albeit more expensive ones.

Amazing food and friendly staff. A lot of the dishes are gluten free, they will help explain if you ask.

Zabb Thai Restaurant

12 Ock St, Abingdon OX14 5BZ, UK – 01235 531115

Good service. Very enjoyable meal. Would go again.

The food here is full of flavour and the restaurant has a cosy feel to it. Service is slow at busy times because of the take aways which is a shame.

Nursery and Preschools

St Nicolas Pre School & Playgroup

Boxhill Walk, Abingdon OX14 1HB, UK – 01235 536061

My son attended St Nicolas Pre School in 2015/16, and my daughter a few years before that. The staff are fantastic, always doing a great job in keepng the children happy and stimulated, while teaching them so much and preparing them for school. Thank you St Nics.

Both my children have attended St Nicolas Preschool (2010/2011 and 2015/16) and they loved it. All the staff are great and I couldn't have asked for a better start to their education.

Rush Common Pre School

Good local school

Culham Science Centre Nursery & Preschool

Culham Science Centre, Abingdon OX14 3GY, UK – 01865 408128

My daughter was in the toddler room, but also interacted with the baby room and the pre-schoolers and I feel the nursery is excellent in every respect. They were very helpful and attentive to my daughters particular needs. The staff were friendly, approachable and left me with no worries when leaving my daughter. One morning my daughter had slept through lunch so when I collected her after her morning session they had saved it for me to take home for her, so I can honestly say I’ve seen the food and that too is of an extremely high standard (which was quickie polished off when we got home). One thing I loved about the nursery was the outdoor play areas, children outside every day, but also that the toddler room had its own area but at times all rooms played together in a much larger environment. I feel this is brilliant not only for social interaction but for bringing on development, especially as my daughter did not have an older sibling. If I could have kept my daughter there longer I truly would have.

I am not sure if you have any questions please let me to get the intended recipient you are not the intended recipient you are
