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

Alphin Brook Rd, Exeter EX2 8RG, UK – 0345 734 5345

I had to pay a cheque into German Shepherd Rescue Elite (we obviously rescue German Shepherd dogs that have fallen on bad times though no fault of their own). I was going to pay it in to the Exeter city branch, which is a bit of a hassle having to go into town, but a quick check on the internet showed there was a branch in Marsh Barton. I found that I can park right outside a couple of steps and I'm in the bank, but even better, I didn't have to mess around with one of those self service machines, I could give the lovely cashier the cheque and the paying in details, job done. Thank you :)

Transferred in 2016 after 40-plus years with the spivs at Barclays and have no regrets except that I stayed with Barclays for so long. This branch of Nationwide is excellent, the staff are courteous and knowledgeable, and the bank seems to be efficient, honest and well-run.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Exeter

Bill's Exeter Restaurant

32-33 Gandy St, Exeter EX4 3LS, UK – 01392 259227

Polite staff, willing to talk to the children. Which helps with their behaviour. Two course lunch menu, good value. Rarebit was a little doughy but sauce was good. Minute steak cooked well, and fries crispy. Mac cheese popular with kids. Floor uneven, difficult for kids to pull chair in.

Really polite helpful staff! It was my 4 yr olds first day wearing glasses and they were happy to oblige in helping bribe him. They brought a giant chocolate coin to help :). They were also really accommodating with food for our son. Our food was delicious too with a wide variety on the menu but by far the staff make that place a treasure.

Nando's Exeter

1 Princess Hay, Exeter EX1 1GE, UK – 01392 436080

Hi back again 10th April 2018. Just had Butterfly Chicken "HOT" in a Portuguese type Bun with Salad and Extra Chips and Coleslaw. Very Very Nice. The Ladies had A Quarter Chicken Two sides corn on the cob and rice. Also had a bottle of Wine. Cara Viva White Dry Crisp. I had Coke Zero. We Enjoyed it very much. Same again next time.

Food is consistent, never had a bad meal here. The cost is reasonable, staff friendly and the speed in which the food arrives is good. However, ordering is slow and it does tend to get really loud when busy. Could do with a little bit more space between some of the tables.

Ask Italian

5 Cathedral Cl, Exeter EX1 1EZ, UK – 01392 427127

The Grosvenor Day Nursery

Christ Church Hall Grosvenor Place, Exeter EX1 2HJ, UK – 01392 279777

A fantastic nursery in a perfect location for those that work in Exeter City Centre. The staff here are extremely helpful, caring and considerate. Right from day one they have been attentive to the needs of my child and the family as a whole. They go above and beyond what they need to do to make sure you and your children are happy. The food is produced on site and is fresh and healthy. And included in the price. Which brings me on to the next point, the price. Compared to other nurseries in the area, this place is extremely well priced. This does not mean you are getting cut price service. Just excellent service at an excellent price. Being in a city centre location, it is even more remarkable that they have a secure outside play area for the children. I’m glad I found this little gem of a nursery.

This nursery is the best thing that could have happened to both my kids. The oldest one left the nursery last year very well prepared for the school and the little one is enjoying every minute and often he does not even want to come home with me when I am collecting him! Can not say enough good thing about he staff and the care that that share with the children. Would recommend to anyone! Love it!
