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 staff are friendly and professional and the newly adapted building copes well with the heavy usage. Noone enjoys the dentist but this is a very good example of an Nhs dentist who also offer private consultations.

A very modern community hospital combined with 2 Doctors surgeries and dispensing chemists. Friendly staff all round. Highly recommended.

Beautiful Catholic Church, very honest people. My 93 year old aunt left her purse at the back of the church and it was still there 2 days later, with everything still in it. My thanks to the person who found it and put it where someone looking for it would find it!

Frederick's

Tithe House, 43 Station St, Cockermouth CA13 9QW, UK – 01900 829299

A good place to go for a special meal. It is a little pricey for the tapas but is a nice change and you get enough to fill you up! I have also been for lunch and had a pizza, it was around £7 but was massive and full of toppings. Lovely decoration and nice atmosphere.

Very nice food but took a long time to serve. Ordered pizza and was only able to eat 3 quarters of it as it was so big

The Honest Lawyer

2 Main St, Cockermouth CA13 9LQ, UK – 01900 824888

A very good meal. Nice friendly staff, very relaxed and accommodating. Our children also enjoyed it.

This restaurant is situated above the bank of the river and is accessed down a few steps and along a metal walkway. Once inside the restaurant us cosy and offers a good selection of well cooked and well prepared and presented food. We turned up without a reservation on the last day of Woolfest. At this time almost everywhere in Cockermouth is busy and a reservation is a good idea. Despite this they squeezed us into their schedule without problems. I had Scotch Egg to start and Special Pasta from the Bistro section of the menu and enjoyed it all

Cockermouth School

Castlegate Dr, Cockermouth CA13 9HF, UK – 01900 898888

Quite a nice school. Some of the pupils are rather bad mannered and i have heard rumours of there being... well a girl was expelled for having a knife on her person... guess where she is now? My school :/ i am not that scared as she is in the x half of my year but she still has the potential to harm. I do like the layout of the school and if i remember correctly they have a nice large eating area. I may not be correct as i haven't been in there for about 3 years but i don't think its changed much. Not really nice school... wall colour hurt my eyes and it looked like a prison camp last time i was there. 5/10 would go again.

Great staff and school building.
