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!

Local Chambers of Commerce for OX10 6AA. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
Wallingford Town Hall

Market Pl, Wallingford OX10 0EG, UK

Wallingford is a very much a community town, has inviting restaurants and pubs with lovely summer thames walks. Has bus to local villages, towns with bus root to and from Didcot parkway train station . I'm glad of improvement years ago to the main town hall. I'm a shamed it still looks like a toilet after having the toilets removed from the town hall. Shame on you town council.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Benson

Anokhi Indain Restaurant

76 High St, Wallingford OX10 0BX, UK – 01491 838077

Lovely food, lovely atmosphere and of course lovely staff. I came in today with my three girls and hubby and the food was absolutely delicious which was served by a lovely lady working who was actually the chefs wife! Anokhi has always been a great family business which I love as well as the food. I used to frequently come to anokhi years ago but my job and kids keeps me busy! And I'm not surprised that the chef still works here, his passion and dedication for his customers never disappoints!

I went to this restaurant today (16.08.17) for lunch on the spur of the moment. I have been once before with friends and have had a few deliveries too. I was not disappointed. I ordered the salmon bhuna with lemon rice and a glass of Pinot. It was delicious and presented with a generous salad garnish. There was plenty of fresh coriander in the sauce and scattered liberally on top - I adore fresh coriander. The flavours were lovely. I would have had a coffee, but they only do instant!!! At £3.25 per cup! No thanks. The service was good and I chatted to the waiter whilst I waited for my meal. I love this place. It is the best Indian Restaurant around and in Wallingford. I highly recommend that you give it a whirl. Do book for dinner on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Lush.

Pizza Express

12 St Mary's St, Wallingford OX10 0EW, UK – 01491 833431

Thank you to all the staff at Pizza Express for helping make our birthday celebration a relaxing and fun evening. They could not have been more helpful in checking we had everything we need bringing the birthday cake to the table, making sure we had wheelchair access and the food and drink was great as usual. A lovely night out.

Tasty food, but painfully slow service considering it was half empty. Wouldn't want to be there on a busy night! .... And not cheap!

The Waterfront Café

A4074, Benson, Wallingford OX10 6SJ, UK – 01491 833732

Brilliant location for a summer lunch, huge terrace and dog friendly outside. Great view of the Thames. Recommend buying duck food and feeding the ducks!

It is OK, but nothing special. It has recently expanded the outdoor seating area to what looks like 300 covers. Order your food at the bar, which might take 20 minutes of queuing when it is busy. Then sit at your table for 30-60 minutes waiting for your food, again depending on how busy they are. The food is OK. Not many vegetarian choices but the menu is predictable and uninspiring. The chips are pasty and flavourless. The salad garnish is minimal and lifeless. The Theakstons Best is really very nice indeed. When we left, we felt glad to be away from the crowd in there. There's nothing else for miles and the location is wonderful.

Fantastic Junior School. Great outdoor space, excellent staff, brilliant use of "Smarts" to recognise academic and non-academic successes, and the best school chef in the country (that's my son's verdict, but I think he's probably right).
