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!

Also see below for all the Building Societies around Your Postcode with their contact details. Just click through to go to a map, street views, reviews and a link to their own websites.

Cherwell Heights Dental Care

Service couldn't be bettered! An incredibly friendly team, welcoming surroundings, and Edvina couples the highest quality care with clear explanations of what needs doing and a gift for always making you feel relaxed. I hated going to the dentist as a child, and still have bad memories . Cherwell Heights has dispelled all of these.

Great team and great care! Very pleased with my programme of dental improvement. Wish I had used this practice years ago.

Hightown Surgery

Hightown Gardens, Banbury OX16 9DB, UK – 01295 270722

Been with this surgery over twenty years and with a serious illness in our family means we put a lot of demands on them. They are fantastic. They have always gone above and beyond anything we could expect including even contacting us to say the GP is going on leave and is calling around a number of serious cases to make sure we are alright before she goes,or if we need anything, and who to contact while she's on holiday. Caring, professional, responsive, always helpful, no matter how much other pressure they are under.

Just wanted to share and say what a fantastic job nurse Barbara White does, so reassuring, kind and caring. A credit to the surgery. :-)

Happy! Excellent Spicy basil, garlic and onion stir fry, mushroom and chicken, and spring rolls. With egg fried. £36 with a gin and tonic, 2 bottles of sparkling water. Bigger portions would have earned 5 stars.

We've visited Paw Paw, Banbury twice and really enjoyed our meals both times. Friendly staff. We've also used the takeaway service a couple of times. Wonderful.

Saint Leonards C of E School

Overthorpe Rd, Banbury OX16 4SB, UK – 01295 262507

This is a good school, they try to make lessons fun and the school dinners are amazing! The teachers are lovely and the lessons are very organized. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone, you will not be disappointed with how your child will end up when they are older.

In my personal experience St Leonards is a great school, with fantastic teachers. Their food is great, and I especially love Friday! I think one of the downfalls of St Leonards C.E Primary is their After School Club. The food is ok-ish there, and there’s not much space for people to play or sit down in. I still think this is a great school and I completely recommend it!
