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!

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 :)

NatWest Bank

Stocker Rd, Exeter EX4 4SZ, UK – 0345 788 8444

The cashiers are excellent and have been helpful. Overt eye contact with the clipboard lady @_the front. I don't want to use a machine, The hurry agenda

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.
