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!

Banks

NatWest

41 Greengate St, Stafford ST16 2JA, UK – 0345 788 8444

Large inside and plenty of 'help yourself' machines which helps you either skip the queue or at least helps reduce it.

Looks nice after the refit but could do with more people to talk to rather than machines

HSBC

8 Market Square, Staffordshire, Stafford ST16 2JP, UK – 0345 740 4404

Plenty of automated machines and staff on hand if you need help. No counter service on Saturday's though which isn't very useful.

After splitting up with my partner, who had not allowed me any access to the joint finances, I found myself having to piece together what was actually happening with my money every month, having to open myself a new bank account, trying to separate what was my financial responsibility and what were joint responsibility, all at a time when I was obviously having to deal with a lot of other issues. The staff in this branch couldn't do enough for me, especially Anne who has been "my Rock". thanks to everyone of these people, they're the best!

Local Chambers of Commerce for ST18 0FZ. 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!
Stafford Borough Council

Civic Centre, Riverside, Stafford ST16 3AQ, UK – 01785 619000

New Waterfront Car park in Stafford. This has replaced the old TESCO multi-storey car park, and is light, spacious and well designed, with wide access ramps. Payment is at the end of the stay, so no need to worry about returning too late for a pre-paid ticket. However, it closes at 2330hrs, so not suitable for revellers at the town's nightspots who return to their cars in the early hours.

Community Council Of Staffordshire

Suite 1A - 1B, The Whitehouse, 3A Chapel St, Stafford ST16 2BX, UK – 01785 242525

Ever wondered which organisation provides support and advice to village halls? Ever asked yourself who coordinates the Best Kept Village competition? Ever thought it would be great to join a discounted oil purchasing group to keep your rural home's boiler filled up at the best possible price? All this and much more, the Community Council of Staffordshire. Independent, always over achieving and, in this day and age, sadly and regrettably underfunded - the unsung heroes of support for rural communities!

Dental Surgeries

Stafford Dental Centre

24 Eastgate St, Stafford ST16 2LZ, UK – 01785 229591

I have been going to the practice for quite a few years now and have always found reception and dental staff friendly and helpful. Marius my dentist is very professional and always deals effectively with any dental problems I may have.

Quick and friendly service. Didn't offer anything I didn't need and was very efficient. Most pleasant dental check up and scale I've ever had. I have a fear of the dentist, mainly as a result of invasive and painful experiences, this has cured my fears.

Smile Style Dental Care Centre

24 Lichfield Rd, Stafford ST17 4LL, UK – 01785 225505

Great experience from start to finish today at Smile. I'm a real nervous patient so to get looked after so well by Lou and Harps really did put me at ease. I didn't truly believe the "pain free" claim but I'm now convinced and wouldn't take my teeth anywhere else, Smile style you have a friend for life πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸΌ

Excellent practice from walking through the door everyone makes you feel at ease. the team are so friendly and the practice is so nice and welcoming. I cannot reccomend this dental surgery enough great treatment and the dental plan is well worth a look keep up the good work...

I've been going to WRS since I was a kid. I've got the best GP and really grateful for the excellent service I've received over the years. There are problems with parking, when I've not been able to get a space I've called in and had no problems with my booking. I usually park by PC World if it's busy.

Extremely helpful staff. The doctors are extremely efficient

Good Surgery. Friendly Staff. Always get an appointment, Like the early mornings and late evening appointments facility. Went just before Christmas sent for x-ray at hospital straight away (Waited 45 mins for x-ray), seen for a F/UP 3 weeks later, and referred to physio with an appointment with in 4 weeks. Very happy with the service.

What brilliant service i recieved from this drs surgery!! Having had to come to stafford with my young daughter for a family emergency and not bringing enough of her prescription milk with me, the lovely staff/drs sorted it out very quickly for me. Thank you so much.

Nice modern building. Offering GP appointments on a weekend too.

Lovely hospital Stafford lovely care the staff were amazing BIG THANK YOU

Rowley Hall Hospital

Rowley Hall Dr, Stafford ST17 9AQ, UK – 01785 238600

I've just had a total hip replacement done at Rowley Hall Hospital and cannot praise the hospital and staff enough. I was kept informed of each procedure and given information on the medication I was taking. Exceptionally clean, very well organised, extremely pleasant nursing staff/doctors. I felt like I received 5* treatment. A huge thank you to everyone for the excellent treatment I received. Well done.

After an initial disappointment through a postponed operation I had my surgery on 30th Dec 2016. From the moment I arrived for my surgery I was treated so kindly, everyone I was in contact with was friendly and caring. Both the anaesthetist and the Surgeon came for a chat prior to the operation, this really put me at ease. I found the standards throughout the hospital are very high. My stay was made as comfortable as possible, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Rowley Hall Hospital is indeed an incredible hospital, one that I would fully recommend.

Find Local Churches & Places of Worship

Collegiate Church of Saint Mary

St Marys Pl, Stafford ST16 2AP, UK – 01785 223600

An elegant enduring church in the heart of the town. It drips history and atmosphere. Slightly odd to see people enjoying picnics in the Churchyard where almost all gravestones were removed. They're still lying on top of bodies which is odd to remember.

Lovely scenic Church with nice grounds around it, very pleasant in the summertime to sit down on the grass and enjoy your surroundings.

Saint Austin's Catholic Church

82 Wolverhampton Rd, Stafford ST17 4AW, UK – 01785 223553

St Austin's is one of the main Catholic churches in Stafford it has benefitted from a sympathetic refurbished to repair some of the overseer VatII changes.

St Chad's Church

Greengate St, Stafford ST16 2HP, UK – 01785 223600

Fantastic old building, really nice inside, got married here and the photos are great. Definitely worth a visit

Another lovely old Chapel Church St Chad's is located in the heart of Stafford and to be honest overlooked by most but we'll worth a visit to appreciate his lovely gem.

Back 2 Bikes

Greyfriars Business Park, Greyfriars Way, Grey Friars Way, Stafford ST16 2RF, UK – 01785 257483

Fantastic second hand bike shop. Bikes are well-maintained, value for money and most importantly miles better than those cheap nasty bikes from supermarkets. They repair and upgrade bikes too and I never seem to visit without buying something. Excellent for parts, light conversation on the topic of the weight of alloy stems and general bike-geekyness.

Good one

J Watson & Sons Ltd

Common Rd, Stafford ST16 3DG, UK – 01785 220111

Good place friendly staff.

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 Staffordshire Technology Park

Pizza Hut - The Hough Retail Park, Stafford

Litchfield Road, Restaurant Unit, The Hough Retail Park, Stafford ST17 4PW, UK – 01785 249900

We are staying in the travelodge next door and ordered to collect. Our food was ready exactly 20 minutes after ordering, smelt amazing as we collected and tasted even better. Being the silly people we are, we forgot about our bottle of Pepsi. My boyfriend went back across to get it and the staff couldn't have been nicer. The lady offered 2 bottles as an apology, my boyfriend tried to just take the one bottle but she insisted he take both. Amazing customer service and such great staff! Will definitely be going back before we leave.

Slow service but decent standard of food and cleanliness

The Stafford Balti Restaurant

34 Mill Bank, Stafford ST16 2QT, UK – 01785 250234

Great food, great atmosphere, would recommend this place to anyone.

Brilliant, every time I visit I am met with what I perceive to be the best Indian food in Stafford. What more is there to say.

Pizza Express

3 Market Square, Stafford ST16 2JH, UK – 01785 256276

It's a pizza express can never really go wrong but not going to revolutionise your life.

An old bank taken over and converted sympathetically. A high ceiling and artwork around the walls reflecting the history of the town's industry over the last century. The food is as you'd expect for any of this chain, but it's siting in the town square makes it a great summer coffee haunt.
