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!

Yes, it's a bank! But they have always been very good to me at NatWest and I have no complaints. This is not my local branch, but I use the business services here as this one is our area's business centre.

I always get great service from the staff and feel welcome. They have a side door access through the alley way to the pay and display car park behind.

Beaufort Road Surgery

21 Beaufort Rd, Bournemouth BH6 5AJ, UK – 01202 433081

Love this surgery, receptionists and doctors are all lovely. Don't have a bad thing to say. Wonderful. Dr Mitchell is the best doctor I've ever had!

Reception and clinical staff always polite and helpful. I've been a patient at the surgery for 13 years and have never had any issues with the service or the staff - only positive things to say.

Providence Practice

12 Walpole Rd, Bournemouth BH1 4HA, UK – 01202 395195

I don't get what some of the critics here are complaining about - it wasn't that terrible. And at least they do do bookings. Although I was a little concern when they asked if I was sexually active. For a minute, I thought the nurse was coming on to me! Also, I felt the examination was only half done - there might have been other medical issues that they are supposed to ask. But it was still a decent and professional place.

Why does it take so long to get an appointmnent as 3 weeks is a bit of a joke when ill to be expected to wait to see your own doctor.

Crescent Surgery

68 Palmerston Rd, Bournemouth BH1 4HT, UK – 01202 393755

OK, I have been down here a couple of times, but this rude receptionist that you all spoke about doesn't seem to work there anymore. Clearly, she must have been sacked for her behaviour. The services are good. The problem is that you need a prescription for skin cream and that would be booking an appointment - and I feel it just wastes the doctors and nurses time.

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.

Nice hospital. Christchurch Hospital was a very large facility, but, most has been converted to flats. The remaining section is more for specialist appointments.

It is a hospital so it gets 5 stars. Hospitals are cool.

Dorset Heart Clinic

The Royal Bournemouth Hospital, Castle Lane East, Bournemouth BH7 7DW, UK – 01202 705454

I cannot speak highly enough of Dorset Heart Clinic team. The help, information and support I received both in the lead up to my procedure, during my procedure and in my after care was above and beyond my highest expectations. From the admin staff through to the nursing & clinical staff and my consultant Dr Sopher, their care, understanding, clear communication and friendly reassurance was second to none and completely put me at ease at a time when I was very anxious. I would wholeheartedly recommend this clinic and it’s amazung team. Thank you to you all. Christine Chant

Extremely happy with the pleasant and efficient way I personally have been dealt with. Have been given plenty of pre-op information and nothing has been too much trouble if I have had any queries. I am yet to have my operation so at this moment in time I cannot comment further.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Bournemouth

Restaurant Roots

141 Belle Vue Rd, Bournemouth BH6 3EN, UK – 01202 430005

Very good food indeed. Highly innovative and well thought out. No unnecessary gimmicks or things being served on inappropriate materials - just amazing flavour and texture combinations that really work, some of them rather surprising. Vegetarian alternatives offered for all meet dishes and those are of the same high quality. The restaurant is quite small and just offers three tasting menus for dinner, allowing to really focus on the food and it shows. Service is very good with friendly and knowledgeable staff. The food is definitely at Michelin star level and service almost there - but the price is not so you get amazing value for money. Reservations highly recommended as the place is, understandably, very popular.

Michellin starred food without the pretentiousness, this is definitely the best quality restaurant in the area. The restaurant itself is small (18 covers) but perfectly laid out to give you space to converse without banging elbows and considering the previous restaurant here had 30 covers it perfectly illustrates that the people running Restaurant Roots are in it for the love of what they do...not the money. We were welcomed by Geza as soon as we walked into the warm lit dining area and there was nothing he couldn't do for us. This is personalised service at it's best. The food was simply outstanding and having eaten at many well established Michellin starred establishments, the food at Roots is of this standard, using all British and as little dairy as possible. The flavours were wonderful, occasionally challenging and one of the deserts was of the best I've had anywhere (including Noma/Studio etc) and the matched wines were spot on. Let's continue to support this local, superb restaurant and give it the accolades it deserves. Thank you guys!

Koh Thai

487-489 Christchurch Rd, Bournemouth BH1 4AE, UK – 01202 914997

Pleasant meal but below average servers. Very much enjoyed our food. My girlfriend had Duck main and I had the jungle curry, not that fiery but you do feel some heat on the lips. Cocktails and beer very nice, just a shame we felt a little neglected when it came to the bill. Wasn't asked if we wanted any dessert, coffee or the usual suspects after a meal.... in fact the waitress did not ask how our meal was! If she had, we would have said excellent.... and possibly left her a tip. Room for improvement for service, food and drink really good. Dont panic too much guys, we'll be back x

It's great to have a koh Thai in boscombe. On the corner of the road Windows stretch around the building making it nice and light inside. The interior is well decorated to create a upmarket style Thai image. It does that but you pay for it. The food is great though and well prepared. They don't dumb it down do is still fiery by authenticity. A good menu and range of Thai dishes. You can also ask for a set price per person and they will just bring out shops selection of you can't decide!

Joy Southbourne

129 Seabourne Rd, Bournemouth BH5 2HG, UK – 01202 431166

Fast service. Lovely food. To our surprise it was half price food on Sundays too which made the bill cheaper. Would recommend.

Great team

St Saviour's Pre School

32 Colemore Rd, Bournemouth BH7 6RZ, UK – 07719 403482

The team that run this PreSchool are amazing. They supported my little one with settling in and throughout his preschool journey. They allowed him to be an individual and celebrated his differences. The team is very caring, enthusiastic and professional. The team remained the same for the 2 years we were there, creating a safe and familiar environment for little ones to grown. There was a real team atmosphere and you felt like they really cared about your child.

This Pre-school is amazing, the staff are so warm and caring and they really do care about all the children. You feel like a person, not just a number. A real family environment. My little boy loves it there and has really blossomed.
