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

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

I have been a patient of Richard Buckley for many years. I have always received treatment of the very highest standard

it is a good dental practice I like it they are very good. to go from Keith filleul from Abingdon

Saint Helens Dental Practice

7 E St Helen St, Abingdon OX14 5EG, UK – 01235 521129

Not been to a dentist in two years! They were fantastic. Full inspection and a lovely clean. I'm so happy I am going to go back for a filling.

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

Yes, I agree it can be difficult to get an appoiintment but I have always found them helpful when it's urgent. Once there, I can't fault to reception staff or the doctors. Doctor Robertson, especially, has been nothing but caring and wise - seeing 2 teenagers through period of depression (an out the other side) and compasionate support for one member of our family getting through challenging health worry.

Friendly staff.

The Abingdon Surgery

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

Was fast tracked as an emergency during morning surgery with acute breathing difficulty. Absolutely first class receptionists and GP (who had never seen me before) . Excellent treatment and ongoing support for the weekend ahead and into next week. Am SO relieved I am a patient with this surgery!!!!

Another fantastic experience of this surgery. The waiting time for an appointment is reasonable, my GP is lovely and she always has a solution for the problems I go in with. Today I had a prescription and referral even before my official appointment time of 8.30am!

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

Marcham Rd, Abingdon OX14 1AG, UK – 01865 904346

Thank you for seeing me so quickly at a busy time. And thank you to the staff who gave a thorough, caring and positive review of my situation and got me the treatment that I needed. I can't say I would recommend it as a place to visit, because I hope that no one needs to go to hospital at all, but if you have a medical problem and a choice, thus is a good place to go.

Very friendly staff, efficient service and very easy to get to. It also offers 30 minutes free parking which is very useful when attending the Minor Injuries Unit.

Abingdon Mental Health Centre

Abingdon Community Hospital, Marcham Rd, Abingdon OX14 1AG, UK – 01865 904894

A really weird place, deathly quiet. Very rare you actually see a patient, just staff going back and forth. Not particularly pleasant inside, no plants, bright colours, just drab and functional. I suppose it's somewhere difficult to like because no-one wants to be there, but difficult to fault as well.

Find Recycling Centres

Oxford Wood Recycling Ltd

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

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.

Friendly & helpful staff - throughly recommended.

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.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Abingdon

Pizza Express

9 Stert St, Abingdon OX14 3JF, UK – 01235 536033

Lovely building and atmosphere on the restaurant. Music playing but at a good volume. The outdoor seating to the rear is nice. We normally go here for lunch and it doesn't get too busy. Great place to take kids, their kids menu is great and the activities are fun. Friendly staff who are always happy to sort out any problems. Occasionally end up waiting longer than you would think with the number of customers but generally service is at a decent speed.

Excellent value. Great taste. Friendly efficient service. Popular place.

ASK Italian

Pulpit House, 1 The Square, Abingdon OX14 5SZ, UK – 01235 529699

Took a friend for a meal there last year and had a very good meal and desert. The staff very helpful and friendly, the atmosphere was warm and relaxing. Never felt rush to eat the meal and the staff where not overbearing. The managed to get it just right when we were there. Good choice of food and felt the price was not bad at all. I would go back

Okay food and surroundings, food as expected for a chain, limited choice but nicely cooked and presented. Staff friendly and helpful.

Limoncello Restaurant

13 Ock St, Abingdon OX14 5AL, UK – 01235 530900

We went here for a Christmas party, around 40 of us. The waiters were very friendly and well organised. We had all of our courses served with no delay and nobody got the wrong meal. The food was tasty, the rump steak was quite a thin bit of beef, but the sauce and sides were all good. It was quite quiet inside the restaurant, but that was lucky for us as we left it late to book the meal. I'd certainly go back here, and I'd like to try out their normal menu.

I took my wife here on the 13/1/2018, the service was quick and very efficient and the food was superb! Excellent value on the food but thought the wine was expensive. Will definitely come again.

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

Appleford Dr, Abingdon OX14 2BZ, UK – 01235 530756

Good local school

Culham Science Centre Nursery & Preschool

Culham Science Centre, Thame Ln, Abingdon OX14 3EB, 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
