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!

Service is quite good. Staff are patient

I banked here in the 1970s; the manager was a criminal maniac who ought to have been in jail. Perhaps he is. I haven't seem him for some time.

Dental Surgeries

Marchmont Dental Care

35 Warrender Park Rd, Edinburgh EH9 1HJ, UK – 0131 229 5542

Amazing service. Lovely staff. Beautiful space.

NHS and private dental care available. Friendly staff.

Bite Dentistry

30 Glen St, Edinburgh EH3 9JE, UK – 0131 228 3060

Yesterday I had a sinus lift and today I was at work having had no pain, no swelling or bruising. I really don't feel like I have had anything done at all!. I cannot thank Eimear enough for her professionalism, cheerfulness  and for making me feel so relaxed .  Thank you to the girls who assist her and at the reception too. The care before, during and after my treatment was excellent as always.

I have been with Bite Dentistry ever since they were still called 'Frederick Street' (2013) and before that "The Dental Clinic" (2007). They are private practice but do some NHS clients as well. Cathy, my original dentist is very professional and since retired. Helen Young is now my orthodontist. Twice a year I go for a checkup and twice for a hygenist. This permanent location is very nicely decorated and the waiting room is spacious and comfortable. Magazine and complimentary water. The machinery they use in the consult room / surgeries are top of the line. They take card when you need to pay, but you can also sign up for a 'program' of sessions (like a Dental Club Plan) - which gives you a discount when visiting and on treatments. I recommend them!

Chalmers Dental Centre

3 Chalmers St, Edinburgh EH3 9EW, UK – 0131 536 4800

Honest review..Be prepared for filling the form and waiting around 1 hour (depends on time -from 9 you till 12 is a big line) BUT it is very professional, they will put medicin inside your teeth and than you have got two months to do something about it..For only £17.80 emergency canal treatment is worth every £...

I was visiting Edinburgh from the U.S., when some overenthusiastic chomping into a sandwich at Oink loosened my bottom front tooth. I found the name of this clinic on the web and was seen almost immediately (it was around 2 pm on a Thursday). Everyone with whom I came in contact was not only professional, but kind. The dentist and his assistant bonded my tooth beautifully and - this is the kicker - charged me 34 pounds. If this had happened in the States, not only wouldn't I have found a dentist, but I would've pain an arm and a leg. Long live socialized medicine!

Craigmillar Medical Group

106 Niddrie Mains Rd, Edinburgh EH16 4DT, UK – 0131 322 2111

Very good and helpful. Recently moved to another area and a different practice, but I now realise how good the surgery, staff and doctors are.

Liberton Medical Group

65 Liberton Gardens, Edinburgh EH16 6JT, UK – 0131 664 3050

Having only moved to Edinburgh recently we had to go through the process of being allocated a GP surgery. Although I'm incredibly lucky not to suffer from Ill health I've only had to use the surgery a couple of times and I can't fault the staff and nurses. I know it can be quite difficult to get a last minute appointment, but if you live nearby they will accept walk-ins from 8am and will try and allocate an appointment for that day - believe first appointments are from 08.40am.

Busy surgery but have always offered same day appointments. Also happy to phone me for review. Great online prescription order service.

Ferniehill Surgery

8 Ferniehill Rd, Edinburgh EH17 7AB, UK – 0131 664 2166

Practitioners and nurses excellent and professional service in what they do .

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.

Royal Infirmary Edinburgh

51 Little France Cres, Edinburgh EH16 4SA, UK – 0131 536 1000

Have to praise the staff at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary. From the moment mum was taken in on Monday, the care and attention she received was outstanding. Particularly the nurses of base 4 in the Acute Medical unit. Those girls were awesome. They made a difficult week much easier to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The whole family was looked after and mum got the best care possible. Words cannot express how grateful we are xx ❤

Visited a friend here today. Very easy to find. The car park is enourmas. Not sure about cost of parking since we were on motorbikes and they are free to park. Place was busy but we found the signage to find wards etc excellent. We did get lost but staff were very helpful and all do a fantastic job, both of looking after patients, and of keeping visitors right.

Congratulations to the staff who have taken the time to make a little garden area around their cabin. I dropped some rubbish off yesterday and it brightened a dull edinburgh evening to see the colourful display. Well done. Staff were pleasant and helpful as usual.

Staff are usually helpful, and it's well organized and signed. It's very convenient to drop lots of rubbish for recycling.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Edinburgh

Howies Restaurant

10-14 Victoria St, Edinburgh EH1 2HG, UK – 0131 225 1721

Nice restaurant in a pretty good location especially if you're into Harry potter and all that. Prices reasonable as well. Good quality food. Portions are decently sized however as a self confessed appetite monster, I could have done with a few more morsels of salmon than was served. Solid choice for a meal out

Good restaurant. We had the 3 course meal option for around £13.50. It was good to get a taste of lots of things but the serving sizes were a little bit too small. Came here for haggis and wasn't disappointed, great place if you want a good haggis. Very nice atmosphere as well.


107-109 St. Leonard's St, Edinburgh EH8 9QY, UK – 0131 662 9349

Couldn't have nicer things to say about Aizle. The service is great. Very friendly, not stuffy at all and super knowledgable. They were very accommodating and had clocked the fact it was our anniversary. We had a little note on our table thanking us for coming for a special occasion and they also gave us a glass of champagne, which was a great touch. The food itself is outstanding. It's a regularly rotating menu, as it depends on what they have in. Every course was delicious and I enjoyed the little intro to each dish. It all tastes very fresh and the wine pairing was a definite good choice. Personally, for what you get I think the value is excellent and would recommend it to everyone.

Love this place. Presentation and taste are equally excellent. Very knowledgeable staff who made us feel comfortable from the first to last minute. We spent 4hrs over dinner but felt like less than two. Brilliant evening out.

Castle Terrace

33-35 Castle Terrace, Edinburgh EH1 2EL, UK – 0131 229 1222

Great tasting menu today at Castle Terrace. Having had to unfortunately cancel at short notice recently we finally made it for our 3rd visit. It didn't disappoint. If anything it was probably our best visit. Great courses. Great taste. Fish courses especially. And the pork dressed as a hamburger was a pleasant surprise. Importantly the staff are great. Not too fussy. Relaxing and enjoyable.

Great dining experience with friendly attentive staff. My wife and I spent a relaxing lunch here. Food was very tasty amd immaculately presented. Would definitely recommend for a special occasion or just to treat yourselves.
