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!

Dentists

Edinburgh Dental

59 Ratcliffe Terrace, Edinburgh EH9 1ST, UK – 0131 667 4433

I was referred to the practice by my own dentist for a complicated extraction. Like lots of people I'm a little nervous of dentists but all the staff put me at my ease. The procedure was carried out professionally and without pain. Both dentist and nurse taking time to explain each step and making sure I was comfortable at regular intervals.

Same day emergency NHS appt with Veronica to replace lost filling. Kind, pain-free 5 star dentist!

Vitality Dental Care

The Dome Store, 5/3 Bristo Square, Edinburgh EH8 9AL, UK – 0131 629 1120

Over the past 5 months I've had a few appointments at Vitality Edinburgh with Omar. Initially I visited to get my braces fitted but was a bit sceptical due to a past experience when I was younger with Braces at a different dentist. Omar explained how this routine would work and after my consultation was available to work immediately and his assistants as well as the receptionists where all friendly and professional. My retainer will be available within 3 days and I've been given clear instructions on how these should work and given assurance I can call to speak with Omar if I have any questions. Due to the quality of work I received I've now moved from another practice to use Vitality as my permanent dentist in future. Prices were very reasonable and all in all I was really impressed with every appointment and member of staff I've spoken with and would have no issue referring any of my friends or family.

It's the university place for dental and optical (glasses etc.) care, I think it's great. They have both NHS and private options available and would explain and then let you choose by yourself. I've only met Dr. Alexandra, she and her assistants are very nice. :) I have very bad teeth, very unfortunately... They sometimes are full of appointments, I think in busy times I can only get appointments after two weeks, but normally it's fine, less or about one week. I think this place for students is nice.

Parkside Dental Practice

1 Parkside Terrace, Edinburgh EH16 5BN, UK – 0131 667 0500

I have been to 4 Dentist in Edinburgh and 2 dentist in Glasgow. This dentist is by far the best. I got all my treatment done in a single day and the dentist took time to show me all the problems with my teeth by having me hold a mirror while pointing and explaining each problem. I even missed my first appointment and their was no £10 charge :) Location is excellent, reception is super friendly and im pleased with the work done on my teeth. I highly recommend this dental practise.

Great dental practice, highly recommend it. They care about the condition of your teeth and provide tailored advice. Good price and great customer service.

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.

A good family health centre

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 .

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.

That was our 2 visit on A&E department today. We would like to thank you Dr Phillip Copley such a good care for my partner. All the test has been done and at the end we left this place sorted. This doctor was very helpful, professional and good organized. His calm attitude made me feel safe even after such a traumatic morning. Thanks again for looking after me, my partner and our baby!!!

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.

Done an excellent job clearing our site. Friendly and fast.

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 Edinburgh

Howies Restaurant

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

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.

A cozy restaurant in the old part of town just behind the castle. Came here with a group of 12. Food came quickly but was pretty straight forward and nothing overly stood out. One of the stars I took off I because of the size of the portions, second one is because the was a massive draft from the emergency exit

Blonde Restaurant

71-75 St. Leonard's St, Edinburgh EH8 9QR, UK – 0131 668 2917

Simply fantastic. The soups are always to die for. The simple and unassuming decor speaks to a commitment to quality over flash. Great for date night, family meals, and any occasion where you want to eat well. Excellent price for quality. Simply said, don't miss it.

Great local restaurant serving tasty French/Scottish food. Friendly unfussy staff and simple but cosy decor. Would definitely recommend if you're in the area

Pizza Express
