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!

This is my local branch bank, I find the customer service always great and I barely have to wait in a line at all. The processes are always very smooth and fast and staff are always attentive. I have an issue with the decor, although a very small issue that doesn't affect the bank stuff, I'd like a refurbished branch store as it is very old fashioned and its design is very poor.

Local Chambers of Commerce for PL19 0AU. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done.

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

The Whitchurch

Church Hill, Tavistock PL19, UK – 01822 612181

An incredible reincarnation of a old pub.The refurbishment is so tasteful. The staff are welcoming and there is a fair choice of beers. The menu,plus specials suit most palettes.Dog friendly to the extent of free treats this is a great country pub .Downside; no outside drinking area and no carpark.

One of our favourite places to eat in the area, we've never been disappointed by the meals here, and regularly use it for family meal celebrations. There have been wonderful specialty meals such as the fish Good Friday last year which was out of this world. We've always found the meat to be fresh and "genuine" and as at least half of our parties are usually vegetarian, they are normally well catered for. Just wish they still did Simmonds cider !!

Lovely food great service nice place to eat

Had the best tofu here ever had out and the veg curry was lovely. I'd rate as 8/10 for my meal. The meat eater rated their meal as 9/10 stating "delicious" and both of us fussy eaters and harsh raters so shows you how good this meal was! We both would definitely return.

Nursery and Preschools

Mount Kelly (Prep)

Mount Kelly (Prep), Mount Tavy Road, Tavistock PL19 9JL, UK – 01822 612244

This school has a well deserved reputation for an excellent education from Kindergarten to Year 8. The school day runs from 8.10 until 16.30 with loads of after school clubs which run through to 1715. The grounds are simply stunning. Class sizes are never more than 20 and the care for students is excellent. Sport facilities are superb and since the merger with the senior school the College has gone from strength to strength.

An amazing school

Its a fantastic school , I have lots of friends are the teachers are amazing. I ispecally love sport and the sport they teach is wonderful.

It is a lovely school there and I was the only Muslim in that school. I started in nursery an d I left when I was in year 4. I had two best friends who cared for me and they are Hannah and Layla.

Whitchurch Community Primary School

School Rd, Tavistock PL19 9SR, UK – 01822 616202

I have two children at this school - I have always found the staff and head approachable and have always done there best to deal with any queries or concerns. Both my children are very happy at the school. I appreciate that at times issues arise and the outcome does not always meet the parents expectations but that does not make it a bad school. The children generally leave Whitchurch, happy, well rounded and with above average grades. The opportunities within Whitchurch make them confident children with good self-esteem. There are many opportunies included sports, drama, cookery clubs, community events and a major asset to the school the fantastic music teacher. I feel all schools have negatives but without a shawdow of a doubt Whitchurch Primary is a positive for the local community of Tavistock. Keep up the good work.

What a great school. My two kids attended this school and we couldn't have been happier with it. They always loved the place, felt part of the community, and they emerged well balanced, happy kids with a solid educational foundation. The negative review from fernie just doesn't sit with my experience. I certainly didn't see the head and the governors wandering around the playground looking for parents to ostracise. We paid for extra tuition, but only for the 11 plus exam and not cos the school was failing to deliver its core teaching. Our kids entered secondary school well prepared and absolutely up to speed with their contemporaries. I would recommend this school to anyone, and frequently do. Just go and have a look, and then find better if you can!

Mount Kelly (College)

Parkwood Rd, Tavistock PL19 0HZ, UK – 01822 813100

An excellent school in wonderful surroundings. The range of activities available yo students is what makes this school so special. Now with a 50 metre swimming pool and incredible sports facilities. The school merged with Mount House Prep school to become Mount Kelly formerly known as Kelly College. I don't think there are more beautiful school settings than the two sites both also located on the the edge of Dartmoor. Apparently the school was a close second for the Harry Potter film setting. Very good value for what is an outstanding school.
