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!

TSB Bank

King George Street, Yeovil BA20 1PS, UK – 01935 475588

This is the bank that really makes the difference. You come in and you feel you have been allocated personal banker every time. The staff is friendly, informative and helpful in every matter. The service is efficient and you get to know them really well. Most of all that are really flexible depending on your circumstances and try to help as much as possible with every little problem you may come across. I have not experienced better customer service in any of the High Street banks used in the past. Would recommend to anyone.

Friendly and efficient staff. It's a pleasure to bank with them.

Local Chambers of Commerce for BA22 8JP. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

Yeovil Dental Practice

10 Sherborne Rd, Yeovil BA21 4HA, UK – 01935 848684

I have just called to register and book an appointment as I have a chipped tooth. The girl on the phone was very friendly and helpful while taking my details. They had a large availability of appointments so I could easily chose one that suited my working hours. Very professional so far!

Dentist was 45 minutes late seeing me. I would've walked out if I'd not had toothache. When I was finally seen the dentist and his assistant were friendly enough, though very methodical and didn't mess about. I was only in for a check up but within 5 minutes he had xray'd me, shown me my wisdom tooth was buggered and subsequently injected me. After a few minutes back in the waiting room I was called back in. I've had wisdom teeth out before under general and was pretty worried about being awake but it was actually no l where near as bad as I thought. The whole thing took less than 30 seconds and I was on the way home straight afterwards. Was back on solids the next day and didn't even have to take any pain killers. Very happy and will be going back for all my dental work.
