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!

173 High St, Hornchurch RM11 3YS, UK – 0345 740 4404

Helpful but very slow and counters open at random hours or late.

Clean and spacious but the rattling HSBC radio station makes one feel the bank is more like a supermarket rather than a serious financial institution.


120-122 High St, Hornchurch RM12 4UL, UK – 0345 788 8444

Nice and friendly staff at the branch...however resolving something on the phone at the central call unit is impossible as they refuse to speak because of "security issues". I feel as I have been criminalised. Overall...a very helpful and friendly branch of a rude and unhelpful organisation.

Probably the friendliest bank I’ve beem to in a long time - and miss it as I now live in London where almost banks lack this personal service

TSB Bank

102 Hilldene Ave, Harold Hill, Romford RM3 8DU, UK – 01708 399998

Nice branch. Very helpful and pleasant staff each time I have visited! 😊 Additionally, I am more than happy with the TSB overall as a new customer. (Ex Halifax customer)

Staff are very helpful and polite. Have always been patient with me as I have always come in with my young son. Always helpful providing information.

Had a very professional briefing from an account manager by the name of Leon. He was very helpful and showed me all the steps to opening an account with lots of various options. A great experience so far. Would recommend the Nationwide to others!

Hacton Dental Care

1 Hacton Ln, Hornchurch RM12 6PJ, UK – 01708 447603

I have found all the staff at this Dental practice to be courteous and professional. My husband joined first when our previous dental practice failed to inform us they had closed. It was the best thing that happened, he had nothing but praise for the Dental care provided and I must agree with him. I also love the fact that I can go on a Saturday which is invaluable to me.

Fantastic Dental surgery. Always well looked after every time I go there! Wouldn’t use any other Dentist

The Harrow Dental Practice

23-27 High St, Hornchurch RM11 1TP, UK – 01708 479717

Implant treatment I came over in March 2018 to Dr Aria who was recommended to me by a friend. At the time the top of teeth were a denture, since then I've had 4 implants which i'm extremely happy about and now I have a full set of teeth! The surgery's professionalism and their after care is second to none. I was always made to feel very comfortable and safe. A lot of advice. The journey was pain free. I'm considering having 3 implants on the bottom in the near future! Highly recommend! Thank you to the Harrow Dental Practice and Dr Aria!

Had implant treatment with dr aria in 2015, very happy with outcome a very nice dentist always made me feel at ease explains the process. Excellent aftercare any problems Dr aria went above and beyond to solve the issue always recommend to friends and family. All staff are helpful and friendly.

I was seen half an hour after my scheduled appointment time but staff were so welcoming and comforting. The nurse and her colleagues made me feel relaxed as this was my first Colposcopy and a scary ordeal for me thinking the worst. Ended up being discharged and no further treatment required thank god! Definitely not putting off smears etc again and would feel comfortable next time around thanks to the team here. (Friday 03/08 after 12:30pm)

My mother sadly passed the day I wrote this post. All I can say is the crash team, ambulance crew & end of life care were incredible. I've never experienced such compassion & understanding. This review is for staff who worked as hard as possible to give her everything she needed. I'm eternally grateful for all that you have done. Many Thanks

Great food and great price good atmosphere nice place to chill out

My first time visiting LOVED IT. The staff are attentive, BUT not to the point,that you fell rushed into making a decision on what to order. I went with two of my best friends,The food we ordered was out of this world... We stayed for about 3.5/4 hours,. when the bill arrived,we were pleasantly surprised to find,we only had to pay £40each... bearing in mind,ALL 3 of us had a starter ,main,desert,and 3 drinks each (3 glasses white wine, 3glasses proscecco,and 3 Bacardi's and coke). BLOODY GOOD VALUEFOR MONEY. I will be returning. 💖💖

Crowlands Primary School

London Rd, Romford RM7 9EJ, UK – 01708 743402

I went to this school a few years back and was there from nursery to year 6...and it was amazing!!! The teachers were really nice and the school dealt with any problems others and myself had in a very thorough manner e.g. Bullying which rarely happened to anyone I knew! Would recommend it to anyone, wish I could go back to be honest!!!

It's the best primary school that I ever went to thank u for helping me with my learning

St Edwards C Of E Primary School

Havering Drive, Romford RM1 4BT, UK – 01708 745971

Public & Preparatory Schools

Gidea Park College

2 Balgores Ln, Romford RM2 5JR, UK – 01708 740381

Both my Mum and I attended this school and have nothing but fond memories of it! The teachers are excellent and the education was second to none. I was there from 2 1/2 through to 11 and it set me up in great stead for starting secondary school and for life in general. I'd highly recommend it to everyone!

Gidea Park College will always hold a special place in my family's heart. As parents we have seen our daughter blossom in a family oriented nurturing environment. Our daughter has enjoyed every moment of school life from the academics to the sports and drama activities. She started in reception as a reserved little girl and now leaves as a confident preteen .

Goodrington Pre-School and School

17 Walden Rd, Hornchurch RM11 2JT, UK – 01708 448349

Ever since I brought my daughter to this pre school I have been very pleased with how quickly she settled in and how she felt so comfortable with all of the staff so quickly. They really go the extra mile to make sure she is happy. She has made many friends whilst here as there is a great sense of community at the school from all the children & the support she receives with her every day learning, social development and dietary needs is amazing. The activities on offer are also great, from music, to putting on shows and from cooking to arts and crafts. I would highly recommend this pre school to anyone who is looking for somewhere that they can be sure their child is in a safe, happy, stimulating & well supported environment.

My Son attends this pre school and it is excellent in every sense. He is at reception level at the age of 4!
