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!

Yorkshire Bank

66 High St, Banbury OX16 5JJ, UK – 0800 456 1247

Needs a refit

NatWest Bank

1 Town Hall Buildings, Bridge St, Banbury OX16 5JS, UK – 0845 788 8444

The inside has recently been refurbished. There are lots of self service machines and the casters are no longer behind bullet proof glass which is refreshing.

Relatively helpfully

Building Societies

Leeds Building Society

19 High St, Banbury OX16 5EE, UK – 01295 277912

Brilliant service over some 8 years at this branch and previously at the Stevenage branch. The staff are excellent and provide an outstanding service at all times. I can not recommend this branch strongly enough. FANTASTIC - thank you!

Coventry Building Society Banbury

93 High St, Banbury OX16 5JE, UK – 01295 262138

Local Chambers of Commerce for OX16 2PQ. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
Banbury Town Council

Cherwell District Council MOT Bay

Thorpe Ln, Banbury OX16 4UT, UK – 01295 221916

Always received a fantastic service at the Cherwell MOT centre. Phil who usually carries out my MOT's is very helpful and friendly.

Honest and reliable test, maybe a bit too "fussy" for some minor details reported as advisories. Will use again in the future for my cars, and would recommend as well.

Job centre Plus

20 Southam Rd, Banbury OX16, UK – 0345 604 3719

Dental Surgeries

41 South Bar Dental Practice

41 S Bar St, Banbury OX16 9AE, UK – 01295 262008

I've been going to 41 South Bar Dental Practice for the past ten years and have remained a loyal customer/patient due to the professionalism and superb dental work that Dr. Tom Donnelly and his team offer. I'm always made to feel so welcome by both Tom and Pauline and I'd highly recommend 41 South Bar to anyone looking for a top-class dental practice in Banbury.

Have always been a nervous patient and especially so when I realised that I needed dental implants. I needn't have worried as Dr Tom and his team made the whole experience comfortable. From the first visit I had my options explained to me and I was able to have all my questions answered without any fuss. It was very calming experience. My implants have now been fitted and I have completed my treatment and I would highly recommend this practice to anyone.

Damira Bridge Street

58 Bridge St, Banbury OX16 5QD, UK – 01295 225540

I had an old tooth filling replaced with a new one earlier this year and I'm absolutely happy with the results and the way I was treated by the staff. Friendly and efficient. Should there be any problems with my teeth, I'll definitely visit Damira again. I would recommend this practice to anyone who needs dental treatment

i can not thank these guys enough for getting me out of the pain i was in the reception staff were very polite and helpful and assisted me very quickly when i gave them a call i am not a fan of dentists and have a slight phobia of them but i would recommend this dentist to anyone with the same issue as i didn't feel a thing :-)

Banbury Dental Practice

35 High St, Banbury OX16 5ER, UK – 01295 251555

On vacation in the UK, needed emergency help. Excellent service all around. Much appreciated!

Took my daughter too see the dentist she knocked her tooth at school, dentist was really nice and gentle definitely recommend

West Bar Doctors Surgery

6 Oxford Rd, Banbury OX16 9AD, UK – 01295 256261

A very over crowded Doctors Surgery. Still given excellent treatment.. They take the time to get to the bottom of it.

OK surgery just long waiting times as per any other surgery....just don't forget to register your car details when you arrive or you will be fined by civil enforcement Ltd who pray on ill people like me when I was taken ill I'm now left with a £300+ fine as they are bullies

Hightown Surgery

Hightown Gardens, Banbury OX16 9DB, UK – 01295 270722

Been with this surgery over twenty years and with a serious illness in our family means we put a lot of demands on them. They are fantastic. They have always gone above and beyond anything we could expect including even contacting us to say the GP is going on leave and is calling around a number of serious cases to make sure we are alright before she goes,or if we need anything, and who to contact while she's on holiday. Caring, professional, responsive, always helpful, no matter how much other pressure they are under.

Just wanted to share and say what a fantastic job nurse Barbara White does, so reassuring, kind and caring. A credit to the surgery. :-)

Woodlands Surgery

Burchester Pl, Banbury OX16 3WT, UK – 0844 477 3628

Excellent staff, who really listen to you and think about what things mean for you as an individual.

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.

Horton General Hospital

Oxford Rd, Banbury OX16 9AL, UK – 0300 304 7777

I've been here since thursday... 1st time I'd been here so knew nothing of what would happen... I've had the best care from the loveliest staff...if i needed anything i only had to ask... would even make me a coffee at 3am... and didnt get on my case to much if i wanted to have a sneaky smoke... so although i was having a scary and painful time of it... they kept me smiling and sane... 😁😁😁

The staff at The Horton's Day Case Unit were remarkably efficient and caring. They made the stressful experience of an unexpected surgery much more bearable. I especially appreciate the personable, clear explanations of my anaesthetist (anaesthesiologist?) Elise Richards. Thank you for your genuine care and concern!

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Banbury

Zushi Restaurant

Parson's St, Banbury OX16 5LW, UK – 01295 278890

The staff were really nice. And the food are all delicious. Highly recommended

My first experience here was a good one. Enjoyed the sushi, good polite service and an interesting menu.

Purple Mango Banbury

Hanwell Mews, 2 Rotary Way, Banbury OX16 1ER, UK – 01295 276900

As we are only visiting, we had not eaten here before. It is a very attractive restaurant and has a large menu with more than your standard fare. The staff were unobtrusive but attentive, and very friendly and helpful. We were made very welcome. It is a nice touch for a member of staff to come out to the door as you leave and exchange pleasantries and thank you for your custom. If you ever find yourself in the area, go for a meal, you won't be disappointed.

In this corner of the world visiting family & to watch the Formula 1 over the weekend we were treated to a meal at the Purple Mango. Firstly the decor inside is beautiful done and even the toilets made you feel like you were in a palace! We were there for the Thursday banquet, in which you get a starter, main, side dish & a naan for under £13! Trust me they don't make the portions smaller just because it's part of a deal either! The food was well cooked, seasoned & very tasty! Myself & the others left feeling very full & satisfied. Apparently they do a buffet on a Sunday that is more than worth the money you pay for it so when we're in the area again we will definitely be coming again!
