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!

After years of neglect I finally had to get treatment for my teeth. I was recommended to Gidea Park Dental Practice and Jonathan has been providing treatment for 2 or 3 years. The treatment and service has been excellent from Jonathan and all other staff at Gidea Park and I very highly recommend this practice.

Highly professional service. Not cheap but you have to pay for quality care ..... and we only get one set of teeth. Excellent service.

My introduction to the practise to enquiry about implant was handle very professionally with clear guide line and cost involved. All the staff and a specially Dr aria have been magnificent.

Western Road Dental Practice, Romford

97 Western Rd, Romford RM1 3LS, UK – 01708 203146

Although I remain a nervous patient after bad childhood experiences with the "school dentist" I do try to go regularly.... after all leaving things makes them worse! Each experience reminds me I needn't get so worried. New xray equipment meant that last time a proposed filling was no longer required - new gizmo shows inside teeth much clearer, hooray for that! Seriously, despite moving 225 miles away last year we will be returning to this practice/dentist for as long as we viably can into our old age! My husband recently switched to this practice as after an initial consultation we felt our trust was well placed for extensive implant surgery which went very well indeed. I wouldn't consider going anywhere else!

Always friendly, efficient and reassuring which is great for someone who has feared/lacked trust in the dentist since childhood. I have never experienced any pain or discomfort when having work done here. 5 stars well deserved.

I visited the Hospital for an Endoscopy and it was amazing. It was clean and sterile. The nurses were knowledgable, friendly, helpful and just amazing overall. The doctor and consultant was amazing and really put you at ease. They made me a tea with biscuits and it was just perfect not that weird stuff with skin all over it. Overall best experience to date.

I was seen at the A and E on Sunday. I could not be more grateful for the care I got from the ECP who looked after me. I think his name is Francis M. He was empathic and compassionate towards me and ensured I was pain free before leaving. He ensured he got a referral for the specialist prior to me leaving the premises. Also the professionals at the X RAY department were very gentle and professional. Thank you so much for the care you provided.

Delicious food...great service. Very enjoyable meal and bonus is they take Tastecard now...lovely!😊

The bar is a little lame. Girl with attitude issues served us. Our Calamari starter was lovely followed by steak served rare. My dinner guest wanted Bearnaise sause with his steak. It was like a scene out of Faulty Towers! To cut a long story short, he was left disappointed.

COSMO World Buffet Restaurant | Romford

4A, The Brewery, Waterloo Rd, Romford RM1 1AU, UK – 01708 733777

My impressions after a first time visit with a group of colleagues. Wide variety of food, Asian, Italian, American etc, looking good but tasting reminiscent somehow of a heated supermarket ready meal, therefore not as good as it looked. In my opinion they may have used plenty of sugar and (I think) flavour enhancers like MSG. We were a big group of people having a great time so we were not too picky. Atmosphere was a good although I couldn’t shake off the canteen feeling. Will I repeat? No. I am not a big fan of eat-as-much-as-you-can style places. Will I recommend it? Yes, if you are not too picky about food quality and quantity is king. Otherwise go eat somewhere else.

Nice well cleaned environment, waiters/waitresses are kind, respectful, funny and caring, however the actual chefs that cook are rude, disrespectful and have conversations amongst themselves whilst cooking the food causing it to burn, They let it down for the staff working there overall. Cosmo gets very packed quickly, The food quickly finishes and a long time is taken to restore. I wouldn’t recommend for couples as there are lots of children running up and down causing havoc.

Rienna's Ltd

196 High St, Hornchurch RM12 6QP, UK – 01708 469463

Had a meal here tonight compliments of my company and I absolutely cannot fault the whole experience. The restaurant was full but the staff were still very attentive and polite, the food was perfect and it was very reasonably priced. I will totally support this local business and recommend everyone to try it.

Fine restaurant, food fantastic, service excellent. Do not hesitate to try this place.

Public & Preparatory Schools

Goodrington Pre-School and School

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

My daughter currently attends Goodrington preschool. I was anxious about her starting preschool as I had never left her before, however her teacher was very understanding and made me feel instantly at ease. My daughter settled quickly and easily, thanks to the excellent teaching staff and small class size. The preschool has good facilities, and the children have opportunity for both indoor and outdoor play, as well as art and craft, cooking, music and of course learning. Due to the small class size there is a very personal approach, and I am confident that the teachers know my child well, something that I do not take for granted. I would highly recommend this preschool.

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.

Gidea Park College

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

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 .

The school is changing for the better. There is a friendly co operative spirit which is felt by parents and students alike.
