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!

Centre for Dentistry

Flintoff Way, Inside Sainsbury's, Preston PR1 6PJ, UK – 01772 447962

First time at Centre for Dentistry and it went really well. Lisa on the front desk is so friendly put me at ease from the moment I walked in. Suffering from anxiety I was very nervous along with not being to see a dentist for a number of years but I needn’t have worried at all. A gentleman named Lucas was the dentist I saw today he explained everything he was going to do and what he was about to do. I didn’t feel rushed or just a number. A treatment plan was made for me and at no time was I made to feel forced into having any treatment I don’t need or feel comfortable having. All my options were explained by Lisa, who again didn’t push me into anything I didn’t feel I needed it in fact afford. If you have anxiety and you need a great dentist then this is the place to go. Excellent service and wonderful caring staff.

My first time using a private practice and couldn't have wished for a better experience. Friendly staff and super dentist who talked me through every stage and made me relaxed. My only gripe would be the Reception area is really noisy due to the proximity of the sainsbury’s tills constantly ringing etc- how the staff cope with this all day is anyones guess- they have a perfectly good door which could be shut -but apparently this is practice policy ??? Surely a sign on the door that says OPEN would work just as well and allow patients and staff to have a simple conversation without the need to talk loudly. Other than that- great experience that has put my fears of the dentist to rest. Would have been 5 stars other than the noise.

The Surgery (formerly DR G A & Dr A Robb)

63-65 Garstang Rd, Preston PR1 1LB, UK – 01772 253554

Dr C M Wilson & Partners

Healthcare Centre/Flintoff Way, Preston PR1 5AF, UK – 01772 655533

Royal Preston Hospital

Sharoe Green Lane North, Fulwood, Preston PR2 9HT, UK – 01772 716565

I've just spent two weeks (recovering from an operation) on Ward 12. The nurses & staff were EXEMPLARY, every one of them. I can't name all of them, but here are just a few, in no particular order: Becky, Charlie (correct spelling, I hope (keep on smiling)), James, Sally, Julie, Mikey, Stacey, Robin, Chandra, Brendan, Maurine, and all the night staff, thank you all. Special thanks to Hayley (=, Sara and Jess. If your name doesn't appear here, I'm truly sorry. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU ALL. I received first rate treatment, care and service, throughout my stay. Now, let the naysayers argue with that.

My Nana lives in Preston and unfortunately had a mini stroke. My Mum and I attended her appointment in the Day treatment Clinic our nurse was called Bernie. She was an absolute star and was so helpful and reassured us along the way. We was all well looked after and lunch was supplied because we had to stay most of the day. I couldnt praise the staff and Doctor enough. My Nana was sent home with medication so were really pleased.

Fulwood Hall Hospital

Midgery Ln, Fulwood, Preston PR2 9SZ, UK – 01772 704111

The service and staff here are excellent. However, the reception area can get quite crowded at times, which is a minor disappointment on an otherwise excellent facility.

Its brilliant Turkish restaurant with kind staff and owner .food is deliciously beautiful. Orders done perfect time and as you ordered.

Have been several times over the past few years and it never disappoints, the welcome is always brilliant and nothing too much trouble. Food and atmosphere great.

Pizza Express

14-15 Winckley St, Preston PR1 2AA, UK – 01772 201580

I've just had possibly one of, if not the most pleasant dining experiences of my life. My partner and I booked a table for 7:00pm, we however turned up half an hour early and they welcomed us with open arms. The waitress was helpful and efficient, we were never left waiting for service whenever needed. The food was to die for, filled with flavour, perfectly cooked and quick to be delivered at our table. If you're looking for a meal out, I would never fail to recommend this pizza express. Absolutely fantastic dining experiences, and for the cost worth every dime.

Good place to eat. Was a little busy when we went and service seemed slow because of it. Asked for water instead of a drink of and got a jug of tepid tap water, not even an offer of ice cubes. The food is was enjoyable though and quite filling even though I was a bit concerned when it came out. Was going to stick around for desert but the Waitress didn't return to see if we wanted anything after delivering the desert menu and so we just paid and left.

MOKA

85a Fishergate, Preston PR1 2NJ, UK – 01772 888863

We had never seen this establishment prior to our visit. The menu looked interesting and the place clean and inviting. Meatball baguette, side salad and chips and a Banana milkshake for my daughter and for a first try of a chimichanga. The Mexican rice was delicious, made fresh on site. The wraps were cajun chicken and spicy to perfection. One of my favourite ever dishes. Superb a 10/10. The baguette was equally as good. The milkshake also. The service from a gentleman with glasses was outstanding. If you have read my reviews before yoh will note I have allergies and angioedema. I know the food was freshly made on site because he brought me the ingredients to set our mind at rest. He knew the menu inside and out. He was fantastic. As for cleanliness it's a 10. Value I think was brilliant. I would highly recommend. We also looked at the tables around us and they seemed equally as impressed. At 12 noon it filled up quickly so if you want lunch get there promptly.

Handy place for breakfast, light lunch, teas, coffee & cocktails within Fishergate shopping centre. Good friendly service.

This is an excellent school and I find some of the previous reviews laughable. It is a school where the teachers are very approachable and will deal with any issues promptly. My son attends Eden Boys Preston and has never complained about bullying. The school has made a positive impression to Preston and has been a tremendous success. Keep up the good work!

Edon Boys has a positive learning environment that helps pupils appreciate their potential. You can really tell that the teachers give their 100% and the pupils are acheiving above and over the expected grades.
