Building Societies


44 Queen St, Oxford OX1 1ET, UK – 0800 554 0351

Perfectly reasonable branch of a pleasant building society. Went the extra mile when we took out our first mortgage by sending a box of essentials - toilet paper, mugs, tea, UHT milk etc. - to our new house so that we could settle in before we started to unpack: nice touch.

Very friendly, polite service

Dental Surgeries

Temple Street Dental Practice

26 Temple St, Oxford OX4 1JS, UK – 01865 922111

Can recommend very highly. Very efficient, excellent booking system with reminders and very high quality care. I was seen by Dr Tan who was absolutely brilliant.

I went to Temple Street Dental Practice a few weeks ago and have been meaning to post a review for a while. I hadn’t been to a dentist for years and thought I should! The service was great and the receptionist was very friendly. The dental care I received was very excellent - thank you Emily and Tas! I will definitely be going back there next time.

Oxford Dental Centre

162 Banbury Rd, Oxford OX2 7BT, UK – 01865 515806

I have trusted Dr. Bowora with my dental health for over 9 years now and can highly recommend him. He has been excellent at explaining my dental conditions as well as the treatment options available. As a patient, you’ll also be able to see before, during and after photos of your treatments.

Wonderful doctor , very competent and very patient. Excellent care and after care. Very sweet receptionist. Clean clinic and inviting atmosphere. I called because I had extreme pain and was accommodated immediately. Highly recommend the clinic.

Bupa Dental Care Oxford

22 Beaumont St, Oxford OX1 2NA, UK – 01865 243702

I eventually decided to see a hygienist for a polish and clean because my teeth were stained and scummy. A really nice Scottish girl took the time to give my teeth a really deep "sandblasting". My teeth are now gleaming and a couple people have asked if I have had them whitened. Great value for 60 quid as the clean lasted the best part of an hour you only need to get it done twice a year if done well.

My first dental appointments in many years and I have to say it was probably the best experience I’ve ever had. Dentist Mo was very efficient and caring and everything was explained well. Natalie, hygienist, had a harder time with me as she had to deal with years of neglect but she was VERY good with excellent advice and samples to improve my brushing. Andra, Fanny and Jo were welcoming and efficient at reception and it was lovely to see Thom, practice manager, out on reception with the team! All in all I would highly recommend this practice particularly if you’re in any way apprehensive as they will look after you!

King Edward Street Medical Practice

9 King Edward St, Oxford OX1 4JA, UK – 01865 242657

Dr. Drury is outstanding. I wish everyone I cared for had her for a doctor. You feel that you're working together to get to the common goal of your health and happiness.

Dr Drury is outstanding in her care, both from a medical perspective and a personable one. Thank you for all the great work you do! The midwife Denise is also superb and lovely, as are all the receptionists and doctors I have encountered at this practice. So pleased to have across this practice.

Cutteslowe Surgery

Excellent surgery, doctors all helpful and friendly

Mayfield Clinic

3, Mayfield House, 256 Banbury Rd, Oxford OX2 7DE, UK – 01865 423425

We have used this practice for a long time. I am shocked to read the content of some of the negative reviews. I would not base my choices on the unreliable advice of angry, seemingly vengeful individuals. You are not advising other patients about your experience of this practice, you are simply venting your anger and trying to get revenge for not being able to have what *you* wanted. It is right and proper that you don't get anything that is against medical advice. Just because you're being seen privately does not mean you can buy your way to antibiotics or a diagnosis. I just cannot believe the reviews are referring to the same practice. This practice is in another league compared with my NHS practice, and we are happy to pay for the high standard on offer. Every doctor and nurse I have seen has given an outstanding holistic service. The waiting area, the admin staff, everyone I have encountered has been wonderful. Our experience of Dr Schnack and Dr Gibson has been extremely positive, we had seen a number of other mental health professionals, they succeeded where others did not.

My family is always seen on time and has received high quality care from all of the GPs we have seen. Dr Schnack has also been wonderful! I love the online booking option and the ability to get a same day appointment. Highly recommend, especially for people like myself who don't have access to the NHS.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Wesley Memorial Methodist Church

New Inn Hall St, Oxford OX1 2DH, UK – 01865 243216

Wesley Memorial Church is a beautiful religious building built in 1878 and located a few meters from Oxford Castle.

History is always cool. Neat to see how they lived during that time.

St Aldates Church

40 Pembroke St, Oxford OX1 1BP, UK – 01865 254800

St Aldate's Church was built in the 12th century.

My home church for over 20 years. I've stayed through many changes and still encounter God here. What more can I say?

St. Ebbe's

2 Roger Bacon Ln, Oxford OX1 1QE, UK – 01865 240438

Warm, welcoming church. Proclaiming the gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ faithfully year on year. Reaching out to students and city folk alike.

Our family have been part of St Ebbe's for a while now. We go to the 9.45am service which has excellent children's groups that are friendly and fun and a great place to learn for under 14s. There's a crèche for babies too. The preaching is exceptional, often going through a book of the bible over a number of weeks. I always feel engaged by it, learn new things and come away knowing God has spoken to me through his word. The music is modern, with one or two classic hymns which hit the mark. At the 9.45 they're accompanied by piano, plus a variety of guitar, bass, cello, violin, drums, etc. It's a welcoming church and definitely worth coming along to find out. Easiest to park in the Westgate Shopping Centre car par park and walk through past Sainsbury's to St Ebbe's.

Very satified by the work carried out on my bmw suspension. Good value for the money, considering the speed and flexibility I would recommend this garage for repairs and also any parts of the cars!

My car's turbocharger has packed up recently and gave them a call to buy replacement part. They did not have one in stock but they help me to source another one through there trade links. Got the part fitted today, working lovely plus been given 6 month warranty. Great company working for community.

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Oxford

Pierre Victoire

9 Little Clarendon St, Oxford OX1 2HP, UK – 01865 316616

One of my favourite restaurants in Oxford. You need to book as its always busy. As its busy and quite crowded it can be noisy. Food in general is excellent and portions good. Mussell starter good,can also be had as main course. House red really good to my taste and not too ridiculously priced!

Excellent food, large enough choice to fit all tastes. All tastes fresh and expertly prepared. Attentive staff even in a rush. Book in advance as very busy on popular nights.

Jimbob's Baguettes

19 Magdalen St, Oxford OX1 3AE, UK – 01865 245549

Lovely place. Nice music. Helpful staff. Super comfy sofas. And I love the art in this place. Very cique.

Amazing little shop, a real one off quirky place. Lovely paninis, great music, friendly staff and perfect coffee. 5/5 👌


74 Cowley Rd, Oxford OX4 1JB, UK – 01865 792777

Fantastic tapas and drinks and great service. Not the cheapest place in Cowley for sure, but well worth the price. It’s a good idea to book a table, as we rocked up at 6pm on a Saturday and were only able to get bar seats (which were still nice, and we got to chat to the charming bartender). A must visit in Cowley if you’re into tapas!

We discovered this restaurant today and where immediately taken by the atmosphere, the food, the whole concept. Tapas are prepared freshly in the kitchen by the bar, before your eyes. You can see and feel the love and dedication the guys cooking and running the place put into each plate. And man can you taste it. The place breaths gastronomical freedom. You are not confronted with a menu where you have to make your choice and bum, like in other places. Here you can pick little tasty plates whenever you want, look chose, ask and enjoy. It's just great.

Nursery and Preschools

St Clement's Church Pre School Oxford

St Clements Family Centre, Cross St, Oxford OX4 1DA, UK – 01865 202512

Fabulous preschool with a nurturing and community environment. The teachers are infinitely patent with a strong focus on individual child's abilities and development areas, learning through play.

Kidsunlimited Mansion House Day Nursery

Apsley Rd, Oxford OX2 7QZ, UK – 0845 365 2915

Amazing! Could never have imagined such a positive experience for my daughter.

A Wonderful nursery. Our pre-schooler has been there since a baby, and his baby brother has just started there. We are very happy indeed with the place: our 4 year-old has always been happy to go and has made many friends and enjoys the activities and the staff. He also eats their healthy meals well (better than at home!).

Little Troopers Day Nursery - Oxford

13 Stanley Rd, Oxford OX4 1QY, UK – 01865 793322

Rebecca runs a well organised and motivated team who all enrich and develop each child’s early years’ experience. Set in a gorgeous Victorian building, the small classes and fantastic pupil/staff ratio are second to none and the creative and well thought out learning objectives of each themed project are clearly layed out for both parents and children. And then extremely well executed by all staff. I have 15 years’ teaching experience, have been a governor of a primary school, and my son has attended Little Troopers for two years - my daughter will also be starting in a month - and I have personally recommended Little Troopers to many of my friends who have subsequently sent their children there too. My son has thrived in such a nurturing environment and he loves the structure of the day with a balanced combination of free play, and group or one to one tasks, which gives him a real understanding of what is in store for him and will prepare him for school in September. Cam Nicolle – April 2014

Our daughter absolutely loves it here - all the staff are really down to earth a kind. The kids are able to play in their lovely enclosed garden and are always doings lots of arts and crafts, I would recommend it.
