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!

Banks

Barclays Bank

38 Boutport St, Barnstaple EX31 1HH, UK – 0345 734 5345

On returning from France, my partner and I had to change our address, set up a new joint account and instigate a number of new direct debits. Being unable to do any of this via the internet, we went into the Barnstaple branch. The service we received was superb. The staff were knowledgeable, smart and efficient. Every time we have used the branch the staff have been helpful and polite. Gold stars all round.

NatWest Bank

41 High St, Barnstaple EX31 1DA, UK – 0345 788 8444

These guys are great, they are always friendly to everyone. The team are a credit to NatWest, so don't believe any of the negative comments, I'm sure it's all just grumpy, miserable people who have nothing better to do with their sad lives than moan about hardworking people.

Hours could be much better!

I go to a lovely dentist called assle she is amazing she gentle and kind top marks . Always helpful and saved my tooth which I thought I would lose amazing with children as well. Always takes her time to do a good job . Thank you

Amazing!!! Couldn't praise it enough. Walk in to 2 lovely smiling girls on reception welcoming me from the moment I walked in. Everyone seems to moan about the waitbut I've never had to wait more than 10 mins and most of the time it's the retired lot that don't exactly have anything else to do anyway! Also there is a great selection of magazines I get to browse at since I don't get much me time at home with the children! Great treatment my dentist Is the best talks me through every possible option & lets me go away and think rather than making me feel pressured there and then. Apart from being a little quiet in reception maybe could do with the tv on for something to watch to keep people entertained apart from that I can not fault this practice lovely & modern high standards! Also maybe appointment cards could be different instead of just on a cut up piece of paper? Deserves more than 5*!

Great food and friendly staff. The pizza fries and mac 'n cheese balls left me in a blissful food coma 🤤. Will be back for more!

Spice Of India

18 Bear St, Barnstaple EX32 7BX, UK – 01271 323591

Barnstaples best Indian take out.

What a fiery introduction to Barnstaple Indian takeaways this was. A few years back I visited a good friend who lives in the area, me being a well travelled curry loving metropolitan professional he was keen to show off the best takeaway the town had to offer. I admit, hubris got the better of me and upon ordering my 'extra spicy' Jalfrezi I uttered those, now infamous, last words "it's Devon, how hot can it possibly be?". It arrived, I had three spoonfuls and then gave up, beads of sweat on the forehead, tongue on fire, pride left in tatters. Let this be a lesson to all of you 'big men' out there. Order with caution. Spice of India has the upper hand.
