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!

Last year when I arrived to the UK I tried to open a new bank account. HSBC was the only one where I got help and could open an account. I was sent away from every other bank. I appreciate the kindness of the employers in HSBC.

Very helpful staff.


6 The Parade, Minehead TA24 5UF, UK – 0845 765 4321

Nice small, but quiet Bank with hardly any queues to make all my requests whilst on holiday. At the counter, i was served by a very helpful and friendly man who dealt with my requests professionally, but at the same time made me feel very welcome, certainly not the usual abrupt, and rude staff in the usual Branches i go to, well done!

Great staff

Holloway House Dental Surgery

Holloway, Minehead TA24 5PB, UK – 01643 703071

I had a series of painful issues which meant I was in and out of NHS dentists, all were very good but it came to a head here where I actually had a tooth removed by George. I own a business where I pride myself on the happiness of the staff and how they work together to achieve something so everybody can be proud of their part. I really felt that this business achieved this as the staff were all happy and really friendly. Getting a tooth removed was actually a pleasurable experience which is a bit weird. Thanks George and the team Gary (FatBelly Brewery in Lynton)

Great Dentist very helpful, i live in Swindon & was working in Minehead for the day & was in agony with a broken tooth & abscess. My dentist in Swindon could not fit me in. George was very helpful & explained everything about tooth removal & put my mind at ease. He had trouble removing the stubborn tooth but i was well looked after by him & his assistant. Thank you all very much, you have no idea how much better i feel. Regards John Farrar

Dr J M Higgie - Harley House Surgery

2 Irnham Rd, Minehead TA24 5DL, UK – 01643 703441

This surgery has been brilliant towards my husband and myself since moving to Minehead in October 2017. My husband had to be admitted to Musgrove Hospital due to cellulitis and possible sepsis. The aftercare has been superb with the various GPs giving their assistance with the condition my husband had and having to have more antibiotics due to his condition. Receptionists and nurses are very helpful too.

Knowle Manor

Dunster, Minehead TA24 6TZ, UK – 01643 841130

Absolutely amazing grounds, and amazing facilities, kitchen the especially. Along with the pool, games room, and 2 living rooms, and the large dining area. Walks in the area are fantastic, and easy to get to, such as the nice and short 2 mile walk to Dunster, starting at the back of the house. However, room 20 (my room number), the toilet didn't work, until you open it all up and push down the mechanism, which is slightly disgusting. But all in all, one of the best experiences I've had, definitely would go again!

Lovely house for a big group to stay. Big professional kitchen that let us easily cook a meal for 30 people and you could do more. There is plenty of room for groups to sit and chat and all 40 of us had dinner together. The bedrooms all pretty much all ensuite with a number of family rooms. Lots of outside space and visiting the lambs was lovely - very friendly farmer who happy to chat and show us the new lambs. Don't over fill the recycling buckets as carrying them at the end of the weekend was a bit of a mission!

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.

4 Holloway St, Minehead TA24 5NP, UK – 01643 706372

Fantastic as always! We've been coming here for the last 20 years when we're in the area which is generally twice a year. Last night was our first wedding anniversary and the staff pulled out all the stops and couldn't have been more helpful. If I could give more than 5*'s I would. Food is always fresh and tastes phenomenal. You have to be good to last for as many years as they have in a small seasonal town.

Absolutely gorgeous food. Friendly staff and very reasonably priced. Will definitely go again if we ever visit Minehead again.

Dean's Fish

35 The Avenue, Minehead TA24 5AY, UK – 01643 708353

Good quality food, friendly and quick service, density recommended. Could do with a better choice of fruit juice though.

Lovely fresh fish. Cooked to perfection. Always visit when in Minehead. Restaurant is so spotless you could eat off the floor.
