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!

Also see below for all the Building Societies around Your Postcode with their contact details. Just click through to go to a map, street views, reviews and a link to their own websites.

The Best Staff Ever! How anyone can bother putting a bad review just because opening times are not shown on Google is beyond me. The staff here are amazing, from the Dr's & Nurses right though to the cleaners! Its a lovely, clean hospital with excellent care and support for visiting relatives. Thank you for everything you have done for us, you all really helped us at a truly awful time

The Mayflower Medical Centre

419 Main Rd, Harwich CO12 4EX, UK – 01255 201299

There are some rather helpful people at this surgery. Ruth was awesome helping with a last minute prescription request and Karen in the computer team solved my online patient access issues quicker than I could say long welsh station names! Kudos. Don’t knock the NHS until to you’ve lived in countries without a free at point of use service. You don’t realise how good it is when used appropriately.

Hi there i must be one of the few that like the place. I'm original from London so if you think this hospital is bad think again. I go to see my nurse and im well happy with my treatment, maybe people are expecting to much Dr's and nurses are human and so are we. are we becoming like the USA where there's blame there's a claim. We need to get a grip.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Harwich

Turkish Meze Bar Restaurant

204 High St, Harwich CO12 3AJ, UK – 01255 504000

My wife and I recently ate at the Turkish meze bar in Dovercourt and I can say we both thoroughly enjoy it. Don't let the outside put you off, it may look like a cafe on the outside but once you get in the decor is nice. The staff were fantastic helping us through a traditional Turkish menu. The food came quickly and was really tasty. Word of warning though they have good size portions and constantly top up your bread up. So bring your appetite. I recommend this place if you're a fan of Turkish food and in the area.

Such a lovely restaurant. Very polite staff! And very authentic Turkish Meze food! Thoroughly enjoyed my dinner.

Thai up at the Quay

1 Eastgate St, Harwich CO12 3EZ, UK – 01255 554532

Tough call to keep up a rating of 6 years as best Thai restaurant in Essex. I haven't been to them all but if any are trying to dislodge this one they have their work cut out. Ours was a first class dining experience for 4 from start to finish. The food was fantastic, the service and advice pitched just right. The owner and his wife are so welcoming it is not possible to find fault. A must for any visitors to Harwich.

Wonderful meal. We had a set menu which was paired together beautifully. The staff are very attentive but not invasive. They have great humour and very knowledgeable with the food. Highly, highly recommend eating here.
