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!

Avenue Dental Surgery

156 Avenue Rd, Torquay TQ2 5LQ, UK – 01803 213888

They were really great considering the amount of work that needs to be done Kirsty Lewis is such a great dentist I am very scared of the dentist but she makes the experience loads more comfortable

mydentist, St Marychurch Court, Torquay

Units 3, 2 St Marychurch Rd, Torquay TQ1 4TY, UK – 01803 328113

I was here with my mother today who has just been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The whole team were lovely, very professional and so kind and caring towards Mum, thank you

I was a tad concerned when the service I'd used regularly for over 20 yrs moved but my worries were groundless. The new surgery is professional and well run, with terrific facilities and friendly faces. It may bigger, busier and less personal in some ways but the purpose is fulfilled and Mr Bak and his receptionist are still just as kind, considerate and helpful as ever they were before they moved. I'm not a huge fan of dentists in general but these guys make the experience quite bearable!

Chilcote Surgery

Hampton Ave, Torquay TQ1 3LA, UK – 01803 316333

Problerly the best surgery in Torbay

At 57 I've been to several practices and this place is by far the best.

Brunel Medical Practice

Fore St, Torquay TQ1 4QX, UK – 01803 312233

Faultless, professionals, caring and go the extra mile. Best practice I’ve been with and at 56 years old I’ve been with at least a dozen.

An excellent practice

Brunel Medical Practice

St Albans Rd, Torquay TQ1 3SL, UK – 01803 312233

At 14.00 hrs I Had to speak to the receptionist at Brunel Practice St Abans road . The receptionist informed me that she would get a Doctor to call sooner rather than later. Within 30 minutes Dr H from St Mary's church contacted me . I explained my condition and he referred me to Heart& Lung Dept Torbay. Dr H was efficient, and had arranged for me to have a chest X Ray. By 17.30 that evening he contacted me leaving s message about my results and sorting out a prescription. I think that is pretty fast service😁😁🤕

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.

Mount Stuart Hospital

St Vincent's Rd, Torquay TQ1 4UP, UK – 01803 313881

My first stay at Mount Stuart Hospital began with a nerve wracking attendance for surgery. Mr Barrington and his team were absolutely amazing. I want to thank them all for being so kind, gentle and understanding as well, of course for their total professionalism. In the course of my recovery I was cared for by a fabulous Nurse called Claudia Van Der Glok. Her compassion and thoughtfulness very definitely helped me to cope with everything. I can't thank you enough Claudia.... or thank you all, for making an unpleasant episode in my life more bearable.

It's nice to be moved through the treatment process quickly and in clean, modern, comfortable surroundings. Staff are friendly and you really feel you are being properly cared for. Food is excellent, rooms are well equipped. Parking is inadequate though and there are a few rough edges but it is (as you would expect) a much more pleasant experience than you'll get in a NHS hospital. The stupid part is the NHS paid for my treatment, which clearly means they have the funding but it isn't being used appropriately in their own hospitals. Don't get me wrong, I think NHS staff are brilliant - but there are too many chiefs and not enough injuns in the NHS. Mount Stewart have the luxury of not having to deal with all the drunks, druggies and other undesirables that clog-up and rip-off our NHS, or with ridiculously inefficient bureaucracy and record-keeping. So yes, if you have the opportunity to get treatment at Mount Stewart you'd be a fool not to take it.

Torbay Hospital

Lowes Bridge, Torquay TQ2 7AA, UK – 01803 614567

Good hospital but obviously overstretched, some staff try to be attentive, others just seem to not be bothered unless reminded. A family relative was in there for 3 months, and was sent home twice, only to be readmitted the first time after two weeks, the second time they where send home too early, and in the late hours of the night had to be taken back by ambulance. Another issues seems to be that some wards get meals direct from the kitchen, yet other wards have ready meals? How does this help patients to get better? Overall a good hospital, but faces many pressures and issues that are across the NHS. Thank you to all of the staff for your hard work, care and kindness.

Had to visit AMU a number of times for ongoing issue, was very well taken care of by the excellent staff - very attentive and patient, professional attitude and mindful. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Pizza Express

16 Strand, Torquay TQ1 2AA, UK – 01803 211525

Busy and short-staffed, but served quickly and efficiently. Food was excellent, fresh and hot. Will go back again!

The pizza was tasty and fresh. The service initially was slow but improved. Overall it was fine.

Las Iguanas Torquay

4, Abbey Sands, Torbay Road, Torquay TQ2 5FB, UK – 01803 297053

Great decor and food. Vegetarian menu has a big selection, along with the gluten free and vegan options too, so there is definitely something for everybody. Cocktail offers and a nice place to come if only for a drink. If you are eating, I've found that the service is usually pretty slow as it's always a busy place. But it's worth the wait

The food was superb but waited far too long for it having informed the waitress at 6 p.m. that we had a time limit as we were going to the theatre for a 7.30 pm show. Had 15 minutes to eat our food and pay. Not somewhere we will be going for a pre-theatre meal again.

Rockfish Family Seafood Restaurant

Victoria Parade, Torquay TQ1 2BB, UK – 01803 212175

A wonderful warm welcome and atmosphere. We have been before and to other Rockfish restaurants and they are also great. The food is very good, fresh and cooked to perfection. The knowledge given and enthusiasm you find is excellent. Great service. Look forward to returning and trying more things and being more adventurous. If you like great food from the sea then just try it.

Great starters and mains, very fresh fish. The waiters very well informed. They come to your table and tell you the catch of the day and describe it. Food spot on. Place is very busy so always book online first.

Nursery and Preschools

Hatfield Nursery

9 St Margaret's Rd, Torquay TQ1 4NW, UK – 01803 316611

Hatfield Nursery is the best Nursery in Torbay. Not only do they treat the children as family, but the facilities are absolutely fantastic. Huge outdoors area to play, soft play area indoors and lots of different rooms for each age group so that specific development is obtained for the correct age. All 3 of my children have been in Nursery here. My eldest started at 3 years old, my second child started at 2 years old and my youngest has been there since the age of 7 months (he is now 3). They also run an after school club and holiday club for older children. My children love the staff and love going here regularly. I could not find a better place for my children to be looked after and thrive while I am at work.
