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!

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.

Amazing experience. My daughter had a tooth out today and the dentist was so understanding and put a child friendly Chanel on the t.v. My daughter was treated with respect and the dentist constantly checked to make sure she was in no pain. Or unnecessary discomfort. The whole thing done in 20 mins with aftercare explained to me and my daughter. Thank you.

Tooth World

34 Sinodun Rd, Wallingford OX10 8AB, UK – 01491 837707

Not quite the clinic shown on their website but more a man in a workroom behind a nail bar! In fairness he fixed a broken denture ( with a bad break) and it has lasted very well. The price was reasonable too. So no frills but good repair.

It's a lovely church and always nice to see it open to the public. It's a shame it's not that regular.

St. John the Evangelist

Oxfam Shop

81 High St, Wallingford OX10 0BX, UK – 01491 834179

Nice little shop always had a good range of stuff, the prices can be a little expensive and they don't allow haggling to be done. what's a little odd as it's all about picking up a bargain and helping people at the same time. in recent years I found a lot of charitable shops like Oxfam are basing their prices on eBay prices.

Albatross Express ''Removals Wallingford''

Saxon Ct, Benson, Wallingford OX10 6RZ, UK – 01491 824772

Excellent company. On time, excellent care taken of furniture, carpets and house paintwork - despite a really tricky tall boy to move - very reasonable cost. Cheerful personality thrown in for free! Highly recommend.

Used this company a couple of times and they are very friendly, reasonably priced & on time!!

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Benson

Pizza Express

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

Staff and venue where pleasant enough but nothing stood out for me here today. Food was the same as any other Pizza Express which is what you would expect for a chain

Generally a very good experience here. They cater really well for allergies and the food is fantastic. Manager was great; polite, friendly, conscientious and happy to help but some of the staff members were plain rude.

Avanti wallingford

85 High St, Wallingford OX10 0BW, UK – 01491 835500

Excellent service. Good value for money. They accommodated us for a 50th birthday meal of 9 people. The food was delicious and a very good selection on the menu. They even brought out our cake and had the whole restaurant singing. Made to feel very welcome. Will definitely be returning. Thank you

Top class Italian food with a personal service and food that will make you want to return

Wallingford School

Saint George's Road, Wallingford OX10 8HH, UK – 01491 837115

My two granddaughters have been through the school under the headship of Mr Willis. I can honestly say they have had fantastic teaching and both of them achieved A levels beyond everybody's expectation. You cannot ask any more from a school. Both girls are now at university both are doing well and they come from a family with no experience of university. Well done to Mr W and his teaching staff and well done to my granddaughters!

My daughter has been educated at private school till this year when we moved back to the UK. I can't really say that I notice any difference in the quality of education. between the International School and Wallingford school. My daughter told me that she get the same attention and help, the teacher are very dedicated

Fir Tree Junior School

Radnor Rd, Wallingford OX10 0NY, UK – 01491 836341

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).

Great School! Amazing staff
