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.

Banks

Virgin Money

10 Regent Circus, Swindon SN1 1PW, UK – 01793 529098

Small "shop" which seems to have just two very helpful and friendly members of staff (a receptionist/administrator and a manager). As it never seems it be very busy (Virgin money seems to encourages transactions over the internet) and as Virgin doesn't have that many different financial products, so most transactions are fairly straightforward anyway, this is fine.

NatWest

84 Commercial Rd, Swindon SN1 5NW, UK – 0345 788 8444

This bank is easy to deal with and very helpfull

Polite friendly staff.

HSBC

The Forum, Marlborough Rd, Swindon SN3 1QN, UK – 0345 740 4404

Nice bank.

Building Societies

Dental Surgeries

Dr Michael Frain Ltd - Clyde House Dental Practice

42 Bath Rd, Swindon SN1 4AY, UK – 01793 611181

My doctor was Dr Vesela Stoynovska. Very very very good and experienced doctor. We have moved in different town, would be difficult to find dentist of her level

I’ve recently changed to Clyde house and my dentist is Dr Artur Witka. Well at first I was extremely apprehensious but he soon found out that I have anxiety and I soon found out that I was in great hands. I’ve seen him twice now and am extremely happy with the outstanding job he does in a professional and calming way. During my root canal I started to panic a bit but he gave me a moment to calm down before continuing (he also had to do the same at our first meet). He’s very personable as are all the reception staff I’ve come across. Great team! I highly recommend! Thank you very much Dr Witka :)

Swindon Dental Anaesthetic Clinic

Broadcasting House, 56-58 Prospect Pl, Swindon SN1 3RW, UK – 01793 484995

Well worth the money when you're in pain. The phone was answered immediately and I was booked in to be seen the very next day. The X ray machinery is of high quality and showed an important issue my regular NHS surgeon missed. The dentist and the assistant were very good as I felt nervous, and extracted the tooth without any issues. I was even given a bag with after care instructions and a couple of items to aid healing. Highly recommended.

Amazing place and staff are so lovely... I can't thank them enough.

Freshbrook Dental Practice

Freshbrook Village Centre, Swindon SN5 8LY, UK – 01793 873044

Always a good, efficient service. The staff are excellent at talking through what they are doing and why. The practice has a relaxing reception environment, good for those who are nervous about going to the dentist. I would highly recommend this dental practice. Jan Hall

I joined the Freshbrook Dental Practice as a patient in 1989, after leaving the Military in which I had served for 35 years. During my long service I met and was treated by a variety of Dentists, in a variety of locations. The treatment I received at the Freshbrook Practice was the best I have ever experienced. Better by a "Country Mile" ; if you will, forgive an old Clich'e. Always cheerful and willing to go the extra mile, the staff were a reflection of the man who owned the practice.

Old Town Surgery

Curie Avenue, Okus, Swindon SN1 4GB, UK – 01793 616057

This GP practice has restored my faith in GP, since returning to Swindon. The friendly reception staff, who are not afraid to chat to parents and hide behind glass are truly exceptional. I had returned to a previous surgery only to find reception staff treated patients like criminals. And shielding patients from Drs. From the outset I have been able to see a Dr and the Dr's give time and treat things seriously. I am very impressed - than you. You are doing a wanderfull job in the present climate of NHS privatisation from the current government.

Reception staff very informative,freindly and polite, doctors'n'nurses exemplary. All in all a great surgery! 😬

Freshbrook Surgery

Freshbrook Village Centre, Swindon SN5 8LY, UK – 01793 870494

This surgery is brilliant! I have always found the receptionist polite & helpful. The doctors have been helpful, caring & done more than they needed to. You do have to wait for an appointment but that's down to the NHS & this awful Tory government!.

I have been with the surgery all my life with little stints elsewhere. Amazing surgery by comparison. Put aside the complainers.... its called prioritisation of need and urgency. If you want to moan about wait times then i suggest you look at the bigger problem. Cuts! Write to your mp's people.

Phoenix Surgery

Dunwich Dr, Swindon SN5 8SX, UK – 01793 600440

I was delighted with the help and kindness I was shown at the Phoenix Surgery. The receptionists were very helpful and kind they couldn't have been better. Both doctors that I saw were very patient and reassuring. I thought everyone involved with my care was wonderful.

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.

Marlborough House NHS

Regular carer staff great though worry about vetting process of agency staff. As a father not felt welcome by some of the other (so called professional female staff ) on a number of occasions. Much room for improvement.

mediocre building, space and environment. lovely staff poor organisation little help given

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Hook

Los Gatos

1-3 Devizes Road, Old Town, Swindon SN1 4BJ, UK – 01793 488450

It's a cosy place with good choice of food and drinks. Lots of Spanish specialties to try. Food is sized for eating at least one starter and one main. Service is fast. Playing Spanish music would make the place more authentic.

This place is special, the food and service are truly exceptional, best in Swindon by a long long way. Other reviews say it all, no one leaves disappointed. Very very very good indeed.

The Jewel In The Crown

14-16 Victoria Rd, Swindon SN1 3AL, UK – 01793 522687

The staff were very friendly and helpful, they made sure that we knew of any extra costs (on top of the voucher) before we ordered which made them seem really honest and respectable. I had the chicken tandoori and it was delicious! Honestly the food was some of the best Indian food I have had in a restaurant. It was also really lovely decor and the staff were wearing traditional dress which made it feel like a real experience. I loved it, would highly recommend, and I would definitely go again!

A fantastic restaurant, amazing staff and service. The food is absolutely out of this world. We went for my daughters birthday and they surprised us by decorating the table and put up birthday banner for her. I can't thank them or praise them enough . Thank you xx

Pizza Express

5 Bath Road, Old Town, Swindon SN1 4AS, UK – 01793 484300

Good value, consistently good simple food. Very noisy

Like all 'chain' restaurants, you're dependent on the staff. Current complement here are good. Service was quick & efficient, food well cooked and served hot, which you might think is a prerequisite but hasn't always been the case at this branch. Currently recommended.

Nursery and Preschools

Clifton Street Pre-School

Clifton St, Swindon SN1 3PY, UK – 01793 491187

My kid has been going to Clifton Street Pre School for the last one year and I am extremely happy with the development of my child. Very friendly staff, caring teachers, excellent facilities, pedagogy, everything else in the school is top notch. My kid is learning new things every day !! My sincere thanks to all the teachers and support staff for taking such good care of my kid. I highly recommend this school to all the parents

Alpha Pre-School

Community Centre, Village Centre,, Worsley Rd, Swindon SN5 8LY, UK – 07468 436852

Highly recommend this pre-school if you're looking to send your child to a place where he/she will be in a safe, educational and happy environment. My son recently attended ALPHA pre-school and is now ready to confidently go into primary school due to the fantastic and supportive staff which guided him. Through the last 2 years in which my son attended, he's not only gained skills in subjects such as Maths and English, but he's developed social skills which have allowed him to make friends that he will also go into School with. I want to thank Alpha for the last 2 years, and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a right pre-school to send their child to.

King William Playgroup

Savernake Street, Swindon SN1 3LZ, UK – 01793 527678

Two of my children have attended King William Playgroup. They adore the setting and the amazing staff there. They were involved in lovely activities daily and some fabulous events throughout the year (Productions, trips and sports events). Both boys talk fondly of King William Playgroup and we'll always be grateful for the amazing start to education that they were given there.

My two absolutely loved it here. They were both fully supported and encouraged by the wonderful staff. The playgroup has a warm community spirit and has given my children the best start in their learning journey.
