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!

Also see below for all the Building Societies around Your Postcode with their contact details. Just click through to go to a map, street views, reviews and a link to their own websites.

Last year when I arrived to the UK I tried to open a new bank account. HSBC was the only one where I got help and could open an account. I was sent away from every other bank. I appreciate the kindness of the employers in HSBC.

Very helpful staff.


6 The Parade, Minehead TA24 5UF, UK – 0845 765 4321

Nice small, but quiet Bank with hardly any queues to make all my requests whilst on holiday. At the counter, i was served by a very helpful and friendly man who dealt with my requests professionally, but at the same time made me feel very welcome, certainly not the usual abrupt, and rude staff in the usual Branches i go to, well done!

Great staff

We were in Minehead for a few days when my husband needed an emergency tooth extraction. This practice saw us on the same day -unlike a few others-and were most helpful and very efficient. Felt totally confident with them .Thank you very very much.

Mr Ruttley was superb in giving my disabled son dental treatment. He was generous with the time he spent with him and totally gained his trust. This is something that 2 other PRIVATE dentists couldn't do! I cannot praise him enough. And if someone is good with disabled folk, you may be certain that they will be good with everyone else! I also have Mr Ruttley take care of all things dental. My family and I have been going to him for about 15 years. He is competent and gives all the information needed to make wise decisions. Full marks from me!

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Minehead

The Wheelhouse Restaurant

27 The Avenue, Minehead TA24 5AY, UK – 01643 818245

Walked in asked for a table for 2. We were given a booth, plenty of room for us. We asked to see a gluten free menu as we noticed they cater for Coeliacs. Wow what a choice! My daughter chose a prawn cocktail to start I had crab cakes. Amazing! I had the ribeye steak and my daughter had the Gammon. Both of meals came with chips and peas. The meat was melt in the mouth gorgeous. We both decided to have dessert. There were lots to choose from ice creams, sorbets, sticky toffee pudding, cheesecake. We have gone away happy and full. Definitely recommend.

Very friendly owners and staff. As always good food at reasonable prices.

Alcombe Tandoori

67 Alcombe Rd, Minehead TA24 6BD, UK – 01643 706591

It is very popular with our family but I had a chicken pathia which is hot and sour but I found it just very hot, no sour but this may be just me

I'm a bit of a Tandoori snob as my father used to chef for a few restaurants, but I can't stop myself coming back here (much to the detriment of my waistline, but heaven for my taste buds!) The staff always greet you warmly and go out of their way to provide excellent service, and the food is to die for. I've yet to have a tikka main anywhere that is as moist and flavoursome as from here. Top notch!

Taj Mahal

9a The Avenue, Minehead TA24 5AY, UK – 01643 704857

One of the best restaurant interiors I've seen. It's so pretty inside! Staff are attentive and polite and the food is really good quality. I'm quite sensitive to spice but they have a selection of mild curries that still have a lot of flavour. Nice atmosphere, lovely evening out.

The food was lovely all fresh made outback. The staff were very helpful to my Grandad by getting his walking frame out and checking he was okay. Very nice food and quick polite service.
