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 doorstep at main entrance is too high and very awkward for my wife who has a knee awaiting operating on. Otherwise well laid out building.

Good service

What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

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.

I've never had anything but good care here. My dentist is really pleasant. My wife says the same about hers. Recently revamped so very pleasant place.

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

Superb hospital more like a posh hotel. Only criticism is diagnosis given to my friend which was just wildly inaccurate when there.

The new NHS website below is very well worth a look. Hospitals are not only listed but evaluated. I certainly know which ones I would go to! At the very least you will know what questions to ask if you are sent to one which has not entered its data. Good luck!

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Cockermouth

Brewers Fayre Cockermouth

Waterloo St, Cockermouth CA13 0QX, UK – 01900 518997

Another meal at the Brewers Fayre which we like as it's easy to book, close to home and not over priced. We chose to have New Year's Day lunch here and were surprised to find it was much quieter than we expected and have seen it on previous occasions. The two for one meal offer was not an option due to the bank holiday so we chose from the main menu and ordered mixed grill, sweet potato and feta lasagne and a grilled chicken and bacon salad, all of which were excellent, served promptly and generously proportioned. The service was good with pleasant staff checking we were happy at intervals. Not being able to resist dessert I had the trio of puddings which was lovely and my partner had the Belgian waffle which he said was good. There have been disappointing reviews lately for the Brewers Fayre and we have not always enjoyed our meals there but we have no complaints from this visit.

After being slow to be seated the service was good. Reasonable quality food at reasonable cost. Clean and tidy.
