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!

Dental Surgeries

mydentist, okehampton

6 Station Rd, England, Okehampton EX20 1DZ, UK – 01837 52745

It is not the best ever but it is certainly above average. Receptionists very friendly.

A very well managed practice with friendly, courteous staff. The standard of dental treatment itself is of the highest quality - I have no hesitation in recommending it.

Okehampton Medical Centre

East St, Okehampton EX20 1AY, UK – 01837 52233

An excellent medical centre. Somehow (despite worsening funding pressures and an increasing population combined with an excessive number of over-entitled individuals within the population who expect an expensive private service without paying a penny in either medical fees or taxes) the practice has somehow managed to adapt and to cope and continue to offer safe care. To any who feel aggrieved by the medical centre, why not register at a different practice and see whether your issues have any genuine value (you will certainly find identical problems at every medical centre) or even write to your MP to try and create the political changes which are required for a better service to be offered.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Okehampton

2 Rivers Restaurant

16 Fore St, Okehampton EX20 1AN, UK – 01837 52981

Went for Sunday lunch, some of us not up for a big meal so lighter options were appreciated. Good advice on portion size from our lovely waiting staff, good value wines and quality of food were great. Six of us split the bill and £20 per head (Inc tip) was very good value.

The roast lamb meal was the best I have ever had in a restaurant, my wife said the same about her cauliflower cheese dish. Wish we had a restaurant as good as this in Yeovil. 2Rivèrs you are a credit to Okehampton.
