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!

Never had anything done. Eroded wisdom tooth that had to come out. Took 2 friends with me for moral support and my legs were shaking in the chair (embarrassing). Mr Patrick talked me through the whole process, reassured me everything was going to go smoothly. Did not feel any injection or anything... very surprised when he said β€˜all done’ Very happy, will never be scared of going there again. πŸ™‚

Parkfield Dental Surgery Ltd

13 Parkfield Rd, Taunton TA1 4RL, UK – 01823 284843

Very impressed with this surgery. My wife had braces fitted and a tooth out by Julie who was extremely welcoming and put my wife’s mind at ease whilst having the consultations and treatments. She talked us both through everything that was going to happen step by step and was very helpful in any questions myself or my wife had. Highly recommend.

I have never had such an amazing service with impeccable professionalism and talent. The end-to-end experience; having a root canal and crown fitted, was virtually painless, stress free and the results: stunning. It's like having my original tooth back. The dentist was incredible. Simply incredible. Watching her and her team work was comparable to a dance. In sync, as a team and flawless. Why would I EVER want to g anywhere else.

Yarde House Dental Practice

Yarde House, 1 Staplegrove Rd, Taunton TA1 1DB, UK – 01823 333253

I've never been a fan of visiting the dentist, but thanks to your lovely warm welcome and gentle manner I fear it no longer. Thank you.

Having struggled with my teeth and apperience for years in addition a complete coward of the dentist I was recommended to Mr Arnold at Yarde House Dental Practice. I can not praise him and his team enough. I now have lovely top teeth and he is just to start work on my bottom set. I now no longer dread the experience he has given me such confidence and it is apparent he really cares. Karen the hygenist at the surgery is amazing, her enthusiam is contagious. Reception staff all brilliant. Thank you to everyone at Yarde House Dental Practice, you really have changed my approach to dentists. Thank you.

French Weir Health Centre

French Weir Ave, Taunton TA1 1NW, UK – 01823 331381

Jusr Just signed up as new patient, and also seen a Dr. So far I'm pretty impressed, right from first contact on telephone I've been treated with respect, information needed has been given simply yet with intelligence. The reception room is small admittedly, but after thinking hard that's the only negative so far. I'll update after more experience of this surgery that is far far better already than my last. And hopefully move that star to 5. X

Fantastic surgery. I have a great deal of faith in all the Doctors and our family doc, Dr. Baker is exceptional.

Bpd sufferer= they turn their back on you with a click of fingers. At first they seem very helpful and caring then they turn and massively mess you right up. They do sod all to help your recovery except dosing you up on meds and don't even give you the meds your usually on at home on admission and never get it right no matter how much you stress the issue. The office is their hideout they hardly even acknowledge you let alone talk to you about what's wrong it's like pulling teeth trying to get anything worthwhile from them. Hope you don't have to go here if so I hope your one who has a helpful admission unlike soooo many I knowπŸ‘ΏπŸ‘ΊπŸ‘ΉπŸ˜ˆπŸ’©πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ’£πŸ’£πŸ’£πŸ’£

Musgrove Park Hospital

Parkfield Dr, Taunton TA1 5DA, UK – 01823 333444

Well the A and E eye lady doctors were fantastic. They removed a splinter of steel from my eye ball. Excellent service and extremely professional. Then the eye clinic doctor was very patient as he cleaned my eye ball. Not an experience I would like to do again but the staff were very helpful. Many thanks.

Staff here are caring and efficient. Have had a very supportive experience, you have the feeling that you are in safe and knowledgeable hands.

Find Recycling Centres

Taunton Recycling Centre

Crown Industrial Estate, Taunton TA2 8QY, UK – 01823 338615

Huge queues and the staff just stand around chatting. They are polite when asked but should be far more proactive. Reuse shop is a great idea but prices are too high for what is being sold. Also no way to get to the shop when very busy as you have to drive past the bins. Not a well thought out site.

Friendly and helpful staff who often help you unload when the place is busy. Long queues can form on weekends, but move fairly quickly. There is a recycle store selling stuff too good to throw away from cycles to books to furniture all at reasonable prices.

Somerset Waste Partnership

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Taunton

Castle Bow Restaurant

Castle Bow, Taunton TA1 1NF, UK – 01823 328328

Sadly the restaurant didn't have our booking, which was made several months in advance given that it was for a 60th birthday celebration, the excellent reputation of the restaurant and the time of year. Wine was very disappointing, very expensive, for supermarket quality products. Food wasn't very hot, however it was amazing. Service was lacking, more attention being paid to hotel guests, had to pour our own wine a couple of times, which shouldn't be the case in a restaurant of this calibre.

Really good cream tea! Nice and cosy place!

Augustus Restaurant

48 St James St, Taunton TA1 1JR, UK – 01823 324354

WOW what an experience. the food is 5*, the atmosphere is 5*, the staff are 5*… THEY CANNOT DO ENOUGH FOR YOU, nothing is too much.

Food was exquisite and service impeccable. Visited the restaurant following a recommendation. Definitely visiting again soon. 5*

Pizza Hut Restaurants

Hankridge Way, Taunton TA1 2LR, UK – 01823 444747

Service was ok. Not particularly fast service and it wasn't that busy. They forgot a couple of items from our order. Pizzas were tasty. Fantastic gluten free and dairy free options. Really good for our son who is coeliac and allergic to dairy. Gluten free pizza base and vegan cheese available so he can have pizza and feel normal! Love the unlimited salad and soft drinks. Good for a reasonably priced family meal... one or two pizzas to share, unlimited salad and a drink each. Makes eating out with a large family more affordable.

Always nice pizza and also good service here, great family atmosphere.

I was in Weirfield School in the 1960s. Very good school. Wonderful people - schoolmates & staff. The school produced a lot of successful women who are in many countries. Not sure I like the merger with Taunton school though.
